Lyrics in Spanish

Partiste con el Carnaval
Que llegó con ese verano
Yo lo vi como un huracán
Que te hizo romper en pedazos

Pedazos de ti incrustados en mí
Pedazos de mí, tirados en el camino

Quisiste quedarte a jugar
Tenías arena en la mano
Armando castillos de sal
Solías llamarme vasallo

Te fuiste con el Huracán
Al imperio de los gusanos
Si quieres te paso a buscar
Yo vivo en la calle de al lado

Pedazos de ti incrustados en mí
Pedazos de mí, tirados en el camino.

 

Lyrics translated into English by Fundi2:

You parted with The Carnival
That arrived with that summer
I saw it,  as a hurricane
Which made you break into pieces

Pieces of you embedded in me
Pieces of me, thrown on the road

You had wanted to stay and play
You had sand in your hand
Putting together castles of salt
You used to call a vassal

You went away with The Hurricane
To the empire of the worms
If you want I’ll pick you up
I live at the next street over

Pieces of you embedded in me
Pieces of me, thrown on the road
