Nicaragua
Protistas Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Para ella esas cajas son infierno
tiene miedo de empacar todas sus cosas
Nicara...
Ve sus (/Jesús), jamás durante la lluvia
Ella se va y él ve la casa vacía
le parece más pequeña de lo que lo creía

Y el baño,
no tiene agua
La cocina,
sin comida
Y la pieza,
no tiene cama
Y adentro,
no hay alma

Nicara...
Ve sus (/Jesús), jamás durante la lluvia
Hay pájaros que a penas saben
volar,
volar,
volar
Hay pájaros que a penas saben
volar

Nicara nica ra na
Tengo que cuidarte mañana
estos tiempos no me dan calma
Pienso en la niña que
arrastraron quedo en coma
y el que
lo hizo se dio a la fuga
Que pasará
con sus padres, ahora
que ya no responde

Nica nica ra na
Recuerdo cuando
tu amigo se colgó
en el sur una mañana
Semanas después
tuviste un sueño
dónde él estaba
bailando arriba tuyo
Y despertaste




ahogada y yo no estaba
ahí para calmarte
