Terry Peter Y Yo
La Casa Azul Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Peter Allen cantaba
Mientras Judy resucitaba en navidad
Decadente y estelar
Peter Allen bailaba
Mientras Liza centelleaba como un flash
En el Sunday Night
Peter Allen cantaba sin parar
Nadie le escuchaba
Peter Allen bailaba en soledad
Y se emocionaba
Aunque no hubiera nadie más

Y como Peter a veces yo me siento atrapado entre la luna y la ciudad
Quiero que todos me adoren aunque diga que todo me da igual
Yo sé que nunca fue verdad
Y mientras tanto me odio como un niño mimado odia su fragilidad
Sólo querría esconderme y escapar de este infierno cerebral
Yo sólo quiero descansar

Terry Melcher cantaba
Mientras Doris enamoraba a la middle class
Acomodada y ejemplar
Terry Melcher grababa
Mientras Charlie se equivocaba en Cielo Drive
Y se convertía en rock star
Terry Melcher cantaba sin parar
Nadie le escuchaba
Terry Melcher grababa en soledad
Y se emocionaba
Aunque no hubiera nadie más

Y como Terry estos días sólo pienso en las cosas que olvidé finalizar
No quiero que me recuerdes mis fracasos y errores nunca más
Pues nunca los voy a olvidar
Tú sabes bien que me odio como un niño mimado odia su inseguridad
Sólo querría esconderme y escapar de este infierno cerebral
Yo sólo quiero descansar

Si nos volvemos a ver yo te prometo
Estar mucho más en paz
Y darte mi tranquilidad

Y mientras oscurecía, nadie tenía piedad
Y Peter se derrumbaba y comenzaba a volar
Y todo el mundo le amaba y conseguía brillar
Y como Peter yo vuelo sin rumbo y escapo y vislumbro el final

Y mientras amanecía, nadie tenía piedad
Y Terry se derrumbaba y comenzaba a volar
Y todo el mundo le amaba y conseguía brillar
y como Terry yo vuelo sin rumbo y escapo y vislumbro el final

Y qué va a ser de mi vida, quién me querrá consolar
Quién velará por mi suerte, dime quién me salvará




Y qué va a ser de mi vida, quién me querrá consolar
Quién velará por mi suerte, dime quién me salvará

Overall Meaning

The song "Terry Peter y Yo" by La Casa Azul is a nostalgic tribute to two iconic figures of pop culture, Peter Allen and Terry Melcher, and their respective struggles with fame, success, and personal demons. The lyrics alternate between recounting their stories and confessing the singer's own anxieties and insecurities, creating a powerful contrast between the glamorous exterior and the troubled interior that often hides behind the public personas of celebrities.


Peter Allen was an Australian singer and songwriter who achieved international stardom in the 1970s and 1980s, thanks to hits like "I Go to Rio" and his flamboyant stage persona. He was also famously married to Liza Minnelli and openly gay, which was still rare for a mainstream artist at the time. However, as the song suggests, his success and flamboyance also came with a price, as he struggled with addiction, loneliness, and the burden of being a role model for the LGBTQ+ community. The lines "Nadie le escuchaba, Peter Allen bailaba en soledad, y se emocionaba, aunque no hubiera nadie más" capture the bittersweet irony of his situation, as he found solace in his own music and art even when nobody else seemed to care.


Terry Melcher, on the other hand, was a record producer and songwriter who worked with several influential acts of the 1960s, such as the Beach Boys, the Byrds, and Paul Revere & the Raiders. He was also the son of Doris Day, a beloved actress and singer who represented the wholesome, all-American values of the middle class. However, Melcher's career and reputation were permanently tarnished by his unwitting association with Charles Manson, the infamous cult leader who ordered his followers to commit a series of brutal murders in 1969. Melcher had previously lived in the house where Manson and his followers carried out their most savage act, the killing of Sharon Tate and several others, and it's been suggested that Manson targeted him as revenge for not helping him launch his music career. The lines "Terry Melcher cantaba sin parar, nadie le escuchaba, Terry Melcher grababa en soledad, y se emocionaba, aunque no hubiera nadie más" highlight the irony of his subsequent anonymity and obscurity, despite his undeniable talent and achievements.


The lyrics also express the singer's own doubts and fears, as he admits to feeling trapped between the expectations of others and his own desires, and struggling with self-doubt and self-hatred. The lines "Y como Peter a veces yo me siento atrapado entre la luna y la ciudad, quiero que todos me adoren aunque diga que todo me da igual, yo sé que nunca fue verdad" and "Y como Terry estos días sólo pienso en las cosas que olvidé finalizar, no quiero que me recuerdes mis fracasos y errores nunca más, pues nunca los voy a olvidar" capture the universal themes of fame, ambition, and self-love, and how they can both empower and destroy us.


In summary, "Terry Peter y Yo" is a poignant and heartfelt tribute to two musical legends and a reflection on the emotional toll of success and fame. The contrast between the upbeat melody and the introspective lyrics adds to the emotional impact of the song, which resonates with anyone who has ever felt the burden of expectations and the weight of their own insecurities.
