from by Rebeca Vallejo



To go against the grain of many centuries of music history, I never wanted to write a “love song”… but sooner or latter, one succumbs to the above-mentioned genre and hence “Despertar” was born; this song talks about love in a very universal kind of way describing its symptoms and also implying that, If you are ever disappointed with love there are “more fish in the sea” so, keep your spirits high and be hopeful that, after a romantic disappointment, love will smile at you again.

Para llevar la contraria a siglos y siglos de historia de la música, nunca quise escribir “una canción de amor”… pero, tarde o temprano, una sucumbe al susodicho género y así nació “Despertar”; esta canción habla del amor de forma universal, describiendo sus síntomas e implicando que, si alguna vez el amor te desilusiona, hay más peces en el mar, por eso hay que mantener la alegría y tener fe en que, tras un patinazo sentimental, el amor te sonreirá de nuevo.




Si me paro a pensar
Rompe el cielo su luz
Y hay melodías que abrazar
Hay tempestades que luchar

Sales de un corazón
Salta el agua en tus pies
Y hay corazones que nadar
Hay más canciones que cantar

Recuerdas la inquietud
Que daba paso a la ansiedad
Y tu estómago en un mar
Que surca penas

Siente así
Oye mi voz
Escúchame en tu canción
Que me deja sola y llena



If I stop to think
The sky shatters its light
And there are melodies to embrace
There are storms to be fought

You come out of one heart
Water splashes under your feet
And there are hearts open to be swum in
There are more songs to sing

Remember the restlessness
That leads to anxiety
And your stomach in the middle of a sea
That plies sorrows

Feel this way
Hear my voice
Listen to me in your song
That leaves me alone and fulfilled
