Track Name: Mermelada de Cenizas
Encontré un recuerdo
Del otoño entre las rosas
Congelado en el hielo
Donde no se sienten el tiempo y esas cosas

Tuve, tuve un barrilete
Lo dejé escaparse
Me dejó aquí sola
No tuve un año primavera
No me importó perderla
Gané mil mariposas

De los besos en la lluvia
No dejamos casi nada
Mermelada de cenizas
hay bajo la cama

En ausencia del olvido
Entre sabanas desiertas
Sueño azul como el océano
La mañana no despierta

Otra vez haciendo olas
Olas en la nada
Esperando en mi ventana
Ecos de la madrugada
Golpean mi persiana
Se acuestan en mi almohada

En los árboles campanas
Nos gritaban ya cansadas
Que el momento era magia
y la magia pasaba

Encontré un recuerdo
Del otoño, entre las rosas
Track Name: Canción lunar
Hay un lugar que se quedó vacío
Hay un lugar que perdió el sentido

Pero si pudiera volvería atrás
y dejaría el tiempo envuelto en celofán
y hay aire que baila en hojas de cristal
Como si pudiera la luna caminar

La tierra va haciéndose más fría
Porque él está jugando a la escondida

Y andará volando por la eternidad
Libre, pues sus pies nadie podría alcanzar
Ay! Aire que baila y alas dejan atrás
Música que nada podría apagar

Y si es para él, el que nunca se fue
El que nunca se va,
El que nunca se puede callar?

Quizás para él, porque nunca se fue
Porque nunca se va,
porque nunca se podrá matar

y hay aire que baila, sin armadura ya
como si pudiera su destino cambiar

Es para él porque me hizo creer
que la luna podía caminar.
Track Name: En la ventana
Kitty está en la ventana
Donde siempre pega el sol
Hace un momento yo era tan chiquita
Ella sabe, ella tiene que saber

En qué caja van sus besos
y el espacio que no siento
Hermana, hija, amiga, alma compañera
Ay si lo supiera, ay si yo pudiera…

Y si el último beso
no supo ser espejo
Ella sabe
Ella tiene que saber

Que no tengas frío yo tengo que saber
Amiga, hija, hermana, no me olvidaré nada

Hace un momento yo era tan chiquita

Kitty está en la ventana
Track Name: Meat and the little fucker
Heard he was a little fucker
who never did care enough about
what he said or did
I would not believe it when
he says he’d never leave you
´cause you’ve always been there for him

Girl when will you see
the waste of lip gloss
this guy really is?
Girl to him you’re just
a little dirt under his
big boy shoes

I know sometimes you feel you’re
nothing but meat
The quake in your blood
wants you to scream

The door it might be closed girl
but still there is a window
and you see skies are blue
on the other side

First he tries to play it cool
Talks and jokes the whole night through
Yes he knows what everything’s about
When he tires of that game
he plays the victim oh so well
To a cross he nails himself
while doing jazz hands

Say will you wait forever?
I say it’s now or never
You’re bound to cut your wrists
with the tip of a star

It’s sad and it’s boring
Gets more than old, than dead
And you don’t even remember
if you ever loved him
You gotta learn to run
and I swear I’ll show you how
I swear I’ll show you how
sometime

Girl I know sometimes you feel
you’re nothing but meat
Please, stop being me
Stop being me.
Track Name: Rara (Wake Up)
Warm glass apples by the broken tree
Leave your war outside, it ends with me
They say everything ends with a fight
But you fell for a vampire tonight

We like how the city smells after the rain
Except the morning after someone else’s
babe has shot your babe

Same painting, different room
He was gonna wake up soon
He was gonna wake up soon

Taking flowers to the dead and gone
when they’re the ones who really need a rose
A kitten playing by himself, I thought
of all his brothers taken one by one

We like sunshine on a yellow wall
Except the morning after someone else´s
babe has shot your babe

Same painting, different room
He was gonna get old too
He was gonna wake up soon
Track Name: Pocket Dreams (kiss me from the stars)
When you kiss me from the stars
I forget this big black hole
On the street the speeding cars
Bring me the most beautiful song

And if I wrote you a letter,
I’d keep it under my skin
´Cause all I have are seasons
Without you
and pocket dreams

You found me at the edge
With a razor on my hand
And showed me the horizon
While you unzipped my pain

Night stops by to rake my fears
Underneath this cherry tree
It’s as if all things were ships
that sail you to me

and they never stop the wheel
no, not even if you die
though it may be make-believe,
do kiss me from the stars

Of all the ghosts inside me,
I need you the most
Of all the lost inside me,
I need you the most
It won’t do to deny it,
I’m in love with your ghost.
Track Name: Dónde
En lo alto truena el hielo,
cansado de murmurar
A los alamos, el viento
los hace dudar

largos días araucarias valles encantados
topa topa amancay

notros coihues lupines
y lagos plateados
ñires lilium lavanda

Nahuel Nahuel

cassis alerce ciprés
manzano y leña
sauco maqui frambuesa

Cielo nítido
Noches púrpuras
Amarillo retama

Nieve que trae silencio
Blancura pacífica
En el bosque, los colores
En la lluvia, música

Dónde, las hadas
dónde estarán?
Dónde se esconderán?

Dónde, las hadas
dónde estarán?
Track Name: Maybe Heaven
We know we are on our way to heaven
But still we won’t take the chance
I’m on my way to heaven
And I´m so scared

I wish I could slow down
And wait till it’s alright
But this road might lead to nowhere

Time will come to an end
Will we carry this load?
And what will I do with it all
If there is no place to hold you?
Unless there really is a heaven
Where we can meet again

Bury this kiss with me forever
Under the fallen leaves of years
As darkness turns to dawn,
I’m weak with love

I wish you could stand up
And reach for my hand now
´cause this road might lead to nowhere

I’m on my way to heaven
I’m on my way to you
Find me in heaven
Find me in heaven
Find me in heaven if heaven exists

But maybe heaven
But maybe heaven
Yes maybe heaven is just
you and me
Track Name: In the rain
Come and see what I have found in the rain
Liquid crystals made of morning light
Drops of stars and butterflies
And how sweet your skin smells

Who knows what has brought this merman to me
Was it the season? Was it the sea?

I just wanna kiss the back of your neck
Drown in those eyes that cannot be explained

Oh how I want all of his preciousness
The world it hangs from his caress
Thoughts they’ve been gathering in my head
They don’t wanna sleep yet

I just wanna kiss the back of his neck
Drown in those eyes that cannot be explained

Who knows what has brought this merman to me
Was it the season? Or was it the sea?
Or things found in the rain

Liquid crystals made of morning light
Drops of stars and butterflies
Kisses for the back of his neck
How strange. How strange
These things you find
in the rain.
