Hoy día luna, día pena
Hoy me levanto sin razón

Hoy día luna, día muero

Overall Meaning

Manu Chao's "Dia Luna... Dia Pena" is a song that conveys a feeling of hopelessness and aimlessness. The song is sung in Spanish, and the lyrics talk about the singer's struggle to find a purpose in life. The song's chorus, "Hoy dia luna, dia pena" which means "Today's the moon, the day of grief," is repeated throughout the song, emphasizing the feeling of despair that the singer is grappling with.


The first stanza of the song talks about how the singer wakes up without any apparent reason, feeling down and dispirited. He doesn't want to get up and do anything today. The second part of the stanza repeats the same idea, saying that the singer is unable to reach any destination, which could be symbolic of his inability to find a purpose in life or any sense of direction.


The second verse continues with the same theme of hopelessness, except this time the singer is almost giving up. He feels like he's dying or becoming numb to life - hence "Hoy dia luna, dia muero" meaning "Today's the moon, the day of dying." The song ends with the chorus again, forcing the listener to ponder upon the feeling of sadness and emptiness that the lyrics convey.

Pour ma part Manu est un artiste qui bercera ma vie, cet album est sorti j'avais 3 ans, mes parents (origine hispanique) l'écoutait tout le temps pour moi manu chao c'est une icône de la musique, je l'adore et ne ma lasse pas de l’écouter, et je l’écoute tout le temps avec mon frère quand on se voit, pour nous elles signifient beaucoup, et tes textes résument beaucoup de choses sur beaucoup de sujets !

Perdido en el siglo! Esas imagenes me recuerdan a como era mi país Chile entre el 1998 a 2005, eramos mas pobres pero la vida era mas sencilla y mas inocente.
