Hyde Park Vivace

Nube de Hielo

Benito Cabrera; arr. Dante Andreo; lyrics by Andrés Molina


I draw you on a piece of paper, painting shadows to the sea;

the cloud that saw me born, also saw me leave.

The distance hurts more if all good is behind;

like a child without play, like a sad song.

Could of ice in the peak of the wide sea.

Cloud of silence, what can you tell?

My youth, my adolescence, and my age of play.

You will see how my life will go.
