Hola a todos!!!

Since I am Spanish  I always have the tendency to return to my language after touring the fields of my imagination in another tongue and, although I know my language is a barrier to many ears, I cannot help portraying any story in this language of mine that, sadly   would leave me in the oblivion if I only spoke Spanish.

I had a lot of problems doing this song that was born when I heard a backing track that instantly seduced me but that afterwards it was almost impossible to me to dress it to my liking, but here is the result, a strange but emotional ballad that made me sing it with a voice from deep inside .

(The snare is terrible!!!! It has been a nightmare!)

I leave you an approximate translation of the story.

I hope you will feel the feeling!!!

I'm cold
but I remain still
without even trying
to put on
my coat

I light a cigarette
and breathe its smoke
with anxiety
without knowing for sure
do I repeat that rite
that burns me
between its threads
that burns me
between its threads

I think of you
I think of me
surrounded by that cold
that covers me
stirring me
stirring me

The streets are empty
because of the winter breath
the leaves
turning upside down
the order that there was before

And while I smoke
Time seems like a friend
who sat down to chat with me
of your silence
and mine
of your silence
and mine

I think of you
I think of me x2
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

Tengo frío? A whole lot better than the flooding of parts of France and Italy.
Nowadays it’s a nice thought if friend live on a mountain when this kind of weather reigns.

I hope that your heating is up to the task.
Your song made me feel warmer. A lot warmer too.
Thank you for posting it.

I’ve picked up butterfly Spanish hoping to polish up my level of your complicated language.
Kind regards, Gus

there is nothing cold about that indeed  @Mora Amaro La Loba

how smooth and relaxing this track 
::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: the guitar, the electric piano, and the beat (that snare!!!!)  :yes: :yes: :yes:
and... your voice in Spanish especially  :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: what a great flow this track has!!  :pompom: :pompom:
me, myself, and Pie

I caught this on YouTube last night... or the night before. Good to hear it here in the Kitchen  ::thumb::

Very slick, professional production, as always.  I like the juxtaposition of the happy, easy, jazzy feel to the dark and yes cold lyrics.

Nicely done! Thank you for sharing @Mora Amaro La Loba   8)

I discovered you also @Mora Amaro La Loba  ;)
I really like how you reveal the essence of things to us the audience with your deep subtlety and creativity.  I'm a fan from that. Its matching the atmosphere and its really entertaining with the clip.
Always a joy to hear people sing in their nativ language what  gives a greater dimension in the way of expression. The end ing was a bit suddenly maybe... :)

Very nice @Mora Amaro La Loba - I really like the vibe of the song together with hearing you sing in your own language.

A very relaxing track to listen to.

listening and watching again @Mora Amaro La Loba

this is great, such a relaxed flow in this track  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

This is the first thing I have listened to today. It is very early in the morning. I am still waking up and I have listened to you with my eyes closed, just letting this song start my day.

And what a perfect start it is!

Your voice sits perfectly within the flow of this music track , Mora @Mora Amaro La Loba and your language is SO NOT an impediment.  :)

Dang @Mora Amaro La Loba  .... I love it! Your videos are AWESOME and I love hearing you sing in Spanish!
The ghostly images of the video have a soul chilling quality that is very appropriate for the art.
Whatever you did to modify the backing track worked very well. It sounds great!
 ( as a side note - Spanish from Spain sounds really good to me. Many speak Spanish here in my locale but usually with island or Latin American accent. My speaking always has that local city street accent.... oh well )

@Mora Amaro La Loba Spanish? Please do! I have always been a great flamenco enthousiast :) No joke, I love it very much.

But apart from that, Spanish is a beautiful language, so I don't see why you shouldn't use it. Which, by he way, would be my recommendation for any musician who'd feel comfortable in their own language as well.

Returning to your song. It definitely has your signature. It characterises a smooth flow, and dreamy, soulful lyrics, bordering on introspection. Nice work again!
