Texto  español English text
  Romance - Hice una raya

Lejos en el horizonte
La historia canaria se esconde

Y se oculta ante la gloria
De un pueblo que vive sin memoria.

Hice una raya en la arena
Tachando palabras que traen las penas.
De una raya hice un puente de buenas ideas.

Hice una raya en la arena
Cerrando el paso a todas las mentiras
Y ver la mar hasta donde arrastra su ira.

La estrella que mano alcanza
Da vida y luz a la esperanza.

Cuando la luna va y se despierta
La verdad abre sus puertas.

Hice una raya para dividir
El pan que nos brinda la tierra
Lo justo como realidad en que todos crean.

Hice unas rayas para dibujar
Tabaibas y palmeras
El Agua en el barranco y verde la ladera

Borré la raya que nos separaba
Como pueblo hermano
La tradición al nuevo tiempo
Le dará la mano.

 

Romance - there was a streak

Far away at the horizon
the story of the Canary Islands hide

Hidden behind the glory of a people
that lives without history

I made a streak to the Sand
and deleted the words, remembering the sorrow
from this streak a made a bridge of good ideas.

I made a streak in the sand,
closed all doors to lies
to see, where the sea takes the fury.

The star that gives the hand
gives also light and hope

When the moon rises and wakes
opens the truth its doors

I made streak in the sand to divide
the bread given by our earth
justice as the truth, in which all believe

I made a streak in the sand
to pain Taibabas and palms
the water in the cave and the green of theh meadow

May the streak smear, what
brother separates from brother
the tradition of the new era
I give it my hand.
