Esperanza Interminable

"Porque me duele si me quedo
pero me muero si me voy,
por todo y a pesar de todo, mi amor,
yo quiero vivir en vos.

Por tu decencia de vidala
y por tu escándalo de sol,
por tu verano con jazmines, mi amor,
yo quiero vivir en vos.

Porque el idioma de infancia
es un secreto entre los dos,
porque le diste reparo
al desarraigo de mi corazón.

Por tus antiguas rebeldías
y por la edad de tu dolor,
por tu esperanza interminable, mi amor,
yo quiero vivir en vos.

Para sembrarte de guitarra
para cuidarte en cada flor,
y odiar a los que te lastiman, mi amor,
yo quiero vivir en vos."

Serenata para la tierra de uno ~ María Elena Walsh (argentina)

"Because it hurts if I stay
but I die if I leave,
throughout and regardless, my love,
I want to live in you.

For your vidala(*) decency
and your scandal of sun,
for your summer with jasmins , my love,
I want to live in you.

Because the childhood language
is a secret between us,
because you give shelter
to my heart's uprooting.

For your ancient rebelliousness
and for the age of your pain,
for your endless hope, my love,
I want to live in you.

To sow you with guitars
to care for you in every flower,
and to hate those who injure you, my love,
I want to live in you."

Serenade for one's land ~ María Elena Walsh (Argentinian)

(*) Vidala: sad song
