Oreja de Van Gogh - Deseos de Cosas Imposibles
This is one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite groups of all time. I have not heard this song in a while, but today just seems like a fitting day. The lyrics are truly beautiful. I will do my best to translate because there are no real translation out there that capture the poetry of these words in spanish: Similar to the dumbest mosquito of the pack, i will follow your light even if it leads me to death. I follow you the same way that those final periods follow those suicidal phrases that look for their end. Similar to the poet who decides to work at a bank, it might be possible that I, in the worst of all cases, could make a judo knot for my heart, and thus forcing myself, while crying, to sign this declaration. I will be quiet because it is more comfortable to just fool oneself. I will be quiet because reason has finally beaten the heart. But no matter what happens, even if someone else is by my side, in silence I will only love you. Similar to the beggar who is resigned to believing that the theater is nothing more than just a window shop, similar to the flower resigned to its faith to decorate an elegant waiting room, I promise to call "my love" the first one to not hurt me, and laughing will be a luxury that I will forget once I forget you. But similar to the way people wait at the main plaza, I am determined, in secret, to light a candle because just in case, one day, luck might decide it wants me to find you again, reducing these words to nothing more than pieces of paper. I will be quiet because it is more comfortable to just fool oneself. I will be quiet because reason has finally beaten the heart, but no matter what happens, even if someone else is by my side, in silence I will only want you, in silence I will only love you, in silence I will only think about you.
