Lyrics

Spanish: Soñar y nada más

No despiertes si sueñas amores
niña hermosa, que amar es soñar,
Despertar es quebrar ilusiones
y hallar entre sombras, la amarga verdad.
No despiertes si vives soñando
y en tu mente hay torrentes de sol;
si en tus sueños se encienden suspiros
que te cercan y acallan tu voz.
 
Soñar y nada más,
con mundos de ilusión...
Soñar y nada más,
con un querer arrobador...
Soñar que tuyo es él
y vive para ti...
Soñar, siempre soñar
que dicen que, en amor,
es triste despertar.
Soñar y nada más
con noches de quietud,
que, misteriosas, van,
cantando amor y beatitud.
Volar a las estrellas
de divinos resplandores
y, en esa eternidad,
vivir un ideal...
¡Soñar y nada más...!
 
No despiertes si sueñas quereres,
que sin duda soñar es vivir...
Mientras tu alma vislumbre ternuras,
verás, niña hermosa, que el mundo es feliz.
Despertar es matar esperanzas
y enfrentar a la cruel realidad...
Es por eso que quiero que sueñes,
que soñando jamás llorarás.

English: To Dream and Nothing More

Don’t wake up if you’re dreaming of love,
beautiful girl, because to love is to dream.
To wake up is to break illusions
and to find among the shadows, the bitter truth.
Don’t wake up if you live dreaming
and there are torrents of sun in your mind,
if your dreams ignite sighs
that enclose you and quiet down your voice...

To dream and nothing more,
with worlds of illusion.
To dream and nothing more,
with an entrancing love...
To dream that he’s yours
and lives for you.
To dream, always to dream,
because they say that in love
it’s sad to wake up.
To dream and nothing more,
with nights of stillness
that go around, mysterious,
singing of love and beatitude.
To fly to the stars
that shine with a divine brilliance,
and in that eternity,
to always live an ideal...
To dream and nothing more!

Don’t wake up if you’re dreaming of loves,
because without a doubt, to dream is to live.

You’ll see, beautiful girl, that the world is happy.
To wake up is to kill hopes
and to face the cruel reality.
That’s why I want you to dream,
because dreaming you’ll never cry.
