Track Name: Manalive
MANALIVE

I left my country just behind my back,
my name’s the one of an exiled man.

Cause I’m going all around the world,
just to recover that what’s of my own.

Although no one has done this before
this circle way has never been walked.

Oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh.

Meanwhile you’re planted like a big fat tree,
cause you didn’t want to believe in me.

I do believe in revolutions,
or can’t you get what this runaway means?

They’re just attempts of going back to Eden,
just to recover what we used to be.

I’m gonna get this gun on my hand,
and I will point it straight to your head,
but I won’t take your life away,
I’ll just bring you into life back again.

Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh.

All the bullets I’ve got in my gun,
will be saved for those pessimist men.

All the intellectuals that i used to read,
were not alive enough to be afraid from death.

Until they saw the gun upon their face,
they didn’t get they were alive again.

I’m gonna get this gun on my hand,
and I will point it straight to your head,
but I won’t take your life away,
I’ll just bring you into life back again.

Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh.
Track Name: Found
FOUND

In the privacy
The bathroom gives,
That was the place
Where I could think,
In me and you,
In eternity,
Who was the first?
What should I leave behind
to start from zero?

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

And if I hide
in the darkest place,
even the night
is bright as day.
Where shall I go
to escape from you?
You won the bet
and now i think
of all the wasted time,
I could have spent
being by your side.

No! Won't let you go!
Won't let you go!
I don't want to let you go!
It took me so long
to find your love,
and I don't want to let you go!

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh


And now I think of all the time
we've got to live together forever!

No! Won't let you go!
Won't let you go!
I don't want to let you go!
It took me so long
to find your love,
and I don't want to let you go!

I couldn’t love anybody,
I couldn’t love anyone but you!



ENCONTRADO

En la intimidad que un cuarto de baño da,
Ese era el único sitio donde podía pensar,
En Ti, en mi, en la eternidad,
Quien era el primero,
Que debía dejar atrás.

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Y si intento esconderme en el lugar más oscuro
Incluso la noche brillaría como si fuera de día.
¿Donde puedo huir para escapar de Ti?
Ganaste la apuesta.
Y ahora pienso en todo el tiempo que he desperdiciado,
Pudiendo haber estado a tu lado

//¡No! ¡No te dejare escapar!
¡No te dejare escapar!
¡No quiero dejarte escapar!
Me llevo mucho tiempo encontrar tu amor
¡Y no quiero dejarte escapar! //

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh

Y ahora pienso en todo el tiempo que nos queda por vivir juntos para siempre.

//¡No! ¡No te dejare escapar!
¡No te dejare escapar!
¡No quiero dejarte escapar!
Me llevo mucho tiempo encontrar tu amor
¡Y no quiero dejarte escapar! //

////No podría amar a nadie,
No podría amar a nadie que no fueras Tú////
Track Name: 2nd Birthday
2ND BIRTHDAY

How can a man be holy?
How can unmake the harm
that he has already done?

How can you find direction,
when there’s no sign to guide you?
Would you take me out of this black room?

Open up my heart
and put dynamite inside
light the torch and let it explode!

(x6) Born again
(x5) Born again

Put my pieces on their place,
fill the puzzle with your grace,
take me to an open space.

You talk about unseen things,
you talk about believing,
when I can’t believe in what I see.

You talk about a new place,
where I could hide away,
about a peace I cannot understand.

Here's where you decide,
to follow is to die,
you've got to knee if you want to fly.

(x6) Born again
(x5) Born again
(x6) Born again
(x5) Born again

And would you make me born again?! And would you make me born again?! And would you make me born again?! Ah!


2º CUMPLEAÑOS

¿Cómo puede un hombre llegar a ser santo?
¿Cómo puede deshacer el mal que ya está hecho?
¿Cómo puedes encontrar dirección cuándo no hay ninguna señal que te indique?
¿Podrías sacarme de esta habitación negra (oscura)?

Abre mi corazón y pon dinamita dentro, enciende la mecha y déjala explotar.

(x6) Nacer de nuevo,
(x5) Nacer de nuevo.

Pon mis piezas en su lugar,
Termina el puzzle con tu gracia,
Llévame a un lugar abierto.

Hablas de cosas que no se pueden ver,
Hablas de creer, cuando yo ni siquiera puedo creer lo que veo.
Hablas de un lugar nuevo, donde podría esconderme, me hablas de una paz que no puedo llegar a entender.
Track Name: My morning Star
MY MORNIG STAR

I want to love you,
I want to hold you,
I want to be with you night and day.
One day you found me,
one day you saved me,
and now you're my morning Star!

La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
You made me sing again,
You're the door that opens the place
where all smiles live.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
You made me sing again,
You're the one that shines,
and takes all my fears away.

And would you keep me,
and would you take me,
to that place we used to be.
Where we'd talk,
and where we'd play,
where my greys would start to fade!

La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
You made me sing again,
You're the one that shines
and takes all my fears away.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
You made me sing again,
You're the door that opens the place
where all smiles live.

(x2) La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la.
(x2) Oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
You made me sing again,
You're the door that opens the place
where all smiles live.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
You made me sing again,
You're the one that shines,
and takes all my fears away.


MI ESTRELLA DE LA MAÑANA

Quiero amarte,
Quiero agarrarte,
Quiero estar contigo noche y día.
Un día me encontraste,
Un día me salvaste,
Y ahora Tú eres mi estrella de la mañana.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
Tú me hiciste volver a cantar
Tú eres la puerta que abre el lugar donde viven todas las sonrisas.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
Tú me hiciste volver a cantar
Eres el único que resplandece y se lleva lejos mis miedos.

¿Podrías guardarme?
¿Podrías llevarme a aquel lugar, dónde solíamos estar?
Donde hablábamos y dónde jugábamos,
Dónde todos mis colores grises se desvanecían.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
Tú me hiciste volver a cantar
Tú eres la puerta que abre el lugar donde viven todas las sonrisas.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
Tú me hiciste volver a cantar
Eres el único que resplandece y se lleva lejos mis miedos.

(x2) La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la.
(x2) Oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

It’s nice house just for me and you. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh, oh.

You forgot my past.

And put me on high. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh, oh.

Put a picture on the wall with a big…
