TRANSLATED LYRICS

LA VIDA ÉS ARA (2020)
BUGUENVÍL·LIES

BOUGAINVILLEAS

Will we see each other often
or will we be alumni
who greet each other on the street
but when they don’t see them they pretend?

And will we know how to be friends
and even laugh at what we were
or will there be some distrust forever
or a small crack?

Will we know each other’s daughters
or will I not know who you live with?
And will I see Henry often
or if the bougainvilleas have bloomed?

Does this end here
or will we go get mint ice cream?
Does this end here
or will it mutate and be forever?

ÈPOQUES GLORIOSES

GLORIOUS TIMES 

A single confetti slowly falls 
It had been stuck 
in some corner of the ceiling in the dining room 
all these years 

A memory of old times 
and parties from a long time ago 
of glorious past times
which recently 
and too often 
we mentally seek 
and while the confetti falls 
they pass us by 
all the images of those years 

Time has stopped 
and we have both looked at each other 
this is not the end we would have expected 
and while the confetti falls 
they pass us by 
all the images of these years

MORI L'ODI

LET HATE DIE

I wish
all these useless people’s heart stopped
I wish
life was kind to everyone
I wish
hatred was finally completely extinguished
And the fire
gave way to love

I wish
luck fell where the sun never rises
I wish
we could take down privileges and oppressions
and fear
would change sides now that it’s dark
And the fire
gave way to love

Reality goes a different way
And it’s so frustrating
that if we don’t unite
hatred will win

LA VIDA ÉS ARA

LIFE IS NOW

What if we stopped for a moment
to breathe deeply
and be able to count up to ten
to think if this is what we want

All so fast, all so now
A plate on the table for anxiety
Tomorrow afternoon is already the past
Saint Xanax and Alprazolam

But there is no rush
There’s no rush
There is nothing in the end

Life is now
Life is now
There is nothing else at the end

QUÈ VA, QUÈ VA

NO WAY, NO WAY

Not everything that shines is gold
Nor everything they say is true
No way, no way
Not everything that dies is mourning
Nor everything that sounds is good
No way, no way

If they made me go back
to being 18 years old
I would do it again
just like before
but I would enjoy it

Not all loves hurt
Nor all friends stand by your side
No way, no way
Not everything is black or white
Nor everything is so important
No way, no way

If they made me go back
and redo all these years
I would do it again
exactly the same
but I would enjoy it

GASELES I EL MAR

GAZELLES AND THE SEA

I’m done living on Tuesday
and dreaming about Saturdays
I already see the dolphins
register me in the market
And knowing that now the world goes on
and life goes on the hairs stand on end

Saturday is here to stay
Now I want 6/8’s, 2/4’s are over
Long life to everything that has to come!
I can see jams, gazelles and the sea

I would never have suspected
What I have learned here locked up
And I know you probably won’t believe me
Through fifteen thousand fields going up
but also descents with amazing views

And Saturday is here to stay!
Now I want 6/8’s, 2/4’s are over
Long life to everything that has to come!
Especially if I can do it so well surrounded

SANT GRIAL

HOLY GRAIL

It’s weird to imagine
that after I die
there could be someone listening to me
me being a sad memory

It’s ridiculous to say I’m excited
but in the way of the Holy Grail
it would come to be a pagan way
of being immortal

COM TRONCS BAIXANT PEL RIU

LIKE LOGS GOING DOWN THE RIVER

The first day of school
and your first friends
and the first school camping trip
and your first match
You go to your first concert
you smoke the first joint
the first late nights
and your first kiss
Then the first day of work
and your first attempts
and the first partner
and your first rent
And we jump from the first car
to your first stroller
And sadly from your two parents
it’s time to say the first goodbye

The last grandmother is gone
You played your last match
Yesterday was the last late night
Last summer the last Berlin
And now the last one of your parents
Today you posted the last tweets
Yesterday was the last day of work
And these are your last friends
And today you will have the last sex
You have already drunk the last anisette
You’ve written the last poem
You’ve eaten the last cake
Tomorrow will be the last day with her
And next month the last walk
Shortly after the last day at home
And finally the last breath

And so it is, happy and sad
We are like logs going down the river
But it’s beautiful
And if you have friends it can even be fun

COPIAR / PEGAR

COPY / PASTE

From the outside it looks very simple
With distance
analyze and understand all the threads
But from the inside it’s a whole world

And you see us all
giving lessons
when meanwhile
our room is a mess

From the outside it looks very simple
Copy / Paste and you’re done

But you see us all
giving lessons
when meanwhile
our life is a mess

Goodbye to these years

I want dances and flowers
Pomegranates, drums
Holidays, loves
from September to August

MAI MÉS VULL ESTAR ENFADAT

I NEVER WANT TO BE ANGRY AGAIN

I never want to be angry again
it is a spiral that takes you away
and has no end

Enough, let’s stop criticizing each other
it is the national sport
and we are all professional hooligans

SUPOSO QUE AIXÒ ÉS FER-SE GRAN

I GUESS THIS IS GROWING UP

I guess this is growing up
and the wheel has already turned so much
that nothing seems very serious to you anymore
but not very exciting either

You know a lot of people won’t change
And you can’t get blood out of a stone
That there are toxic people
and that the vanishing point is important

That love alone is not enough
and patience alone isn’t either
Those weird days there are
between when you decide it and you do it

And meanwhile we keep dancing
on the tape that takes us to the end
And we’re swinging back and forth
but everything that happens will never come back

Nostalgia is easy to stir up
but to encourage the future not so much
But this always moves forward
whether you like it or not, it doesn’t matter

You know people better
When they really don’t need you, no more
It’s time for the weather to be good
Mercurochrome, sandals and that’s it

I guess this is growing up
and the wheel has already turned so much
that nothing seems so serious to you anymore
but not too exciting either

TOTHOM VOL SER FELIÇ

EVERYONE WANTS TO BE HAPPY

Everyone wants to be happy, but now
And it’s not that simple, as you know
But today who knows, maybe it will happen
And everything will disappear completely

I know it’s not easy
to look ahead when it hurts so much
But today who knows, maybe it will happen
And you’ll go to sleep
feeling that everything will be fine in the end

LIFE VEST UNDER YOUR SEAT (2019)
CADA DEU ANYS

EVERY TEN YEARS

Every ten years
they say you replace
every cell in your body
and therefore
of what I was in 2007
there is nothing left.

Who you met
is not me anymore.
And who you were
I can see neither.

I’m altogether another meat,
other eyes,
and another heart.
Sometimes it happens that the best option
is to start over.

Who you met
is not me anymore.
And who you were
I can see neither.

UN SOL RADIANT

A RADIANT SUN

And the drums rumble
and the lights are turning on
and the path can be seen clearly
and, suddenly, it’s not scary anymore

and now comes to your mind
a real advice
that you didn’t even suspect
when everything was hellish.
And it goes:

“think that
even if you don’t see it clearly now
behind all the grey clouds
there’s always a radiant sun”

And once again those mornings
on the shoulder of a giant
seeing everything is possible.
Finally on the clear side.

And it’s been raining on you
for such a long time
that now that you are so well
you want to shout at the wind:

“Up and think that
even if you don’t see it clearly now
behind all the grey clouds
there’s always a radiant sun”

And now who shines is you!
And now the sun is you!

DIUEN DIUEN DIUEN

THEY SAY THEY SAY THEY SAY

If you dress like this we’ll never get you married
This degree has no career prospects
Are you sure this is the right guy for you right now?
This dance you make can’t be understood

This fight of yours makes no sense
This is a teenager thing, it’ll pass
It is time to think what you want to be
It’s obvious you didn’t think this through

To hell with them!
They can keep talkin’,
you do you.
Neither they know everything,
nor they do everything right.
you do you.

Almost 40 and still no kids
And with a job you never know how it’ll go
This is a hobby and not a profession
This parties you vote for are the worst

To hell with them!
They can keep talkin’,
you do you.
Neither they know everything,
nor they do everything right.
you do you.

PENALTI I GOL ÉS GOL

PENALTY AND GOAL IS GOAL

It’s been 5 years
since I started over.
The wolf and the sea
had swallowed me.
Spiders and beetles.

But it was relaxing
and the sun came out.
Confetti, streamers,
goodbye to the hole.
Nobody wants sad faces,
nobody wants cries.
Penalty and goal is goal.

How time passes
when one is where they should be.
And it makes me so happy
self-management and going out in the street.
Shy eyes and almond trees.

And it was relaxing
and the sun came out.
Confetti, streamers,
goodbye to the hole.
Nobody wants sad faces,
nobody wants cries.
Penalty and goal is goal

SIGNAT, EL TEU PADRÍ

SIGNED, YOUR GODFATHER

When no one else sees it,
but you want to try it.
When even if it is not part of your plans
you are really dying for it.

When they say it’s not worth it,
but you believe in it and you want to try.

Then go on!
Who cares
What you believe
is what matters.
And through oceans and mountains,
if necessary.

That when the grave comes may you have nothing to regret.
For life it’s worth fighting.

If it’s hard to imagine
and no one is by your side.
If when you always sense it
you get excited and you can’t stop.

If it’s always done one way,
but you think it can be changed.

Then go on!
Who cares
What you believe
is what matters.
And through oceans and mountains,
if necessary.

That when the grave comes may you have nothing to regret.
For life it’s worth fighting.

QUINA SORT

HOW LUCKY HOW LUCKY

How lucky, oh how lucky
we are to live here.
How happy, oh how happy,
does the king we have make us.
How lovely our rulers,
they truly love us.
Like the judiciary power,
all angelical goodness.

And the whole planet is all love
and everyone lives smiling.
Yeah! What joy
being able to live this moment.
Wherever you look everything is good.
How lucky! It’s wild!
And whatever some may say,
It is true we can’t complain.
We can’t complain anymore…
We can’t even complain anymore…
(or in prison they will want us)

OCLOCRÀCIA

OCHLOCRACY

Reality shows,
obsolescence,
Richter scale,
and real estate,
and blood,
world war,
risk premium,
Schengen area,
gentrification,
and ochlocracy.

If it has already been proven
that speaking kindly to plants
makes them grow big,
imagine what can happen
if we treat with respect
any of the human beings.

And the 3 percent,
and “la manada”,
the Euribor
the champions,
and the supreme court
and you
and talk show hosts
and El Corte Inglés
and glutamate
rubber bullets,
the bank,
the peak oil,
and the fucking beach-body plan

If it has already been proven
that speaking kindly to plants
makes them grow big,
imagine what can happen
if we treat with respect
any of the human beings.

A toast to people
who live constructively
and always in positive.
Come on let’s toast to people
who live constructively
and always in positive

LIFE VEST UNDER YOUR SEAT

LIFE VEST UNDER YOUR SEAT

You won’t be given any trophy
because you’ve held on for so long
without anyone’s help
with all this suffering you feel.

And when one gets stuck in the mud
the spiral swallows them, it’s normal.
And if they can be helped from the outside,
then what’s the problem?

Push all these fears aside.
Push all these complexes away.
Enough with being prideful.
Let’s start opening windows.

Life’s only a day or two
and it’s not worth it living them in a well.
Leave your embarrassments aside
and let yourself go.

Life vest under your seat
and let’s toast for all we’ve bloomed.
Life vest under your seat.
You know I’m here for you.

LES FLORS VERMELLES

THE RED FLOWERS

They are far away
all those grey days
and the emptiness
has turned into glitter
with you!
You are the one who makes
the red flowers bloom.

Days of winter sunsets
And nights under lit up blankets.
As if time and space didn’t exist
nor the rest of the people on the planet.
As if suddenly nothing else mattered.

They’re not here anymore
those drowned nights
nor those slow
and apathetic afternoons.

And it’s you!
You are the one who makes
the red flowers bloom.

Days of winter sunsets
And nights under lit up blankets.
As if time and space didn’t exist
nor the rest of the people on the planet.
And ascending in spiral
we both fly over
the highest mountains
of the 5 continents
and we take a breath
and we go out into space
leaving behind a trace of light upon passing
and suddenly you look at me
and you say “you’re so cheesy”
and I say
“it was about time,it had been too long”

CADA INFERN UN DAU

EVERY HELL A DICE

Every year only an inch
and every inch eight cuts
and every cut a hell
and for every hell a dice.

And every dice a cry
and every cry a tomorrow.
Every tomorrow a maybe
and every maybe a comeback.

Maybe the time has come to quit
cause this isn’t working,
cause this is done
and it’s not worth it to hurt each other
and to be stuck

Every comeback is a shutting up
and every shutting up
a vulture waiting.
Every vulture a little piece
And every little piece less hunger.
And the less hunger the clearer
and the clearer
the more rush there is.
The more rush more pain
and the more pain
a lot more of feeling horrible.

Maybe the time has come to quit
cause this isn’t working,
cause this is done
and it’s not worth it to hurt each other
and to be stuck, don’t you think?

Love time has come,
It’s very clear.
Cause this isn’t working,
cause this is done
and it’s not worth it to hurt each other.
we have to stop.

Love,
It has turned off.
It has escaped.
You know we’ve tried,
But it’s too late now
and it can’t be fixed.
This is done.
It’s done.
This is done.

RIENT PER NO PLORAR

LAUGHING NOT TO CRY

This is a drifting boat
And we act as if nothing is happening,
kicking forward the lifesavers.
Strategies to think everything is going well.
Manuals to look elsewhere
and we’ll see.

But we’ve crossed the point of no return
And there no oxygen left to get back to shore.
The crew still doesn’t know,
But this is the beginning of the end.
Now we are sawing
the branch we are sat on.
Laughing not to cry.

We have learned how to walk
in fields full of mines.
Through the shrapnel.
In the chemical fog.
As if it weren’t with us
And without any worries

That I don’t know where to start.

COSTA-ROJA (2018)

Benvingut als Pirineus

Welcome to the Pyrenees

Follow two eyes until you crash
It’s supposed to rain tomorrow
Rules to live without rules
Such losers but so cool
I’m seduced like that, in pajamas
Let’s travel Europe by train
‘Cause today I belong to whoever wants me
Welcome to the Pyrenees

But right now I’m a Friday
and a Sunday is what you want
In reality I’m looking for THE Sunday
but for now I raise dust
giving roses for fun
‘cause the best sun is winter’s sun
And with just one phrase in mind:
“Let them say what they want,
because if we think what they’ll say
we will never do anything”

Between craving and brotherhood
Between volcanoes and viewing points
Between bed sheets and beekeepers
Between YouPorn and More Than Words

Welcome to the Pyrenees!

Un gran riu de fang

A big river of mud

If I could choose a superpower,
paying attention to my unconscious,
I would say I am sure:
I would like to stop time

and that it would
forever be the present
it’s not that everything is clear
or that everything is going so well,

but unfortunately
I can see what is coming:

Maybe we will never see each other again
and some won’t be here anymore.
We will all have grown up
and most will have changed.
And the places we now go to
a lot of them will have closed
or maybe the whole world
will be a big river of mud.

If I could choose a superpower,

Nem fent i endavant

Let’s get by and keep going

Who has never known sadness
can’t know what happiness is
Just like who has never known failure
will never know what winning is

But, wait a second
if I like you
and you like me
then it is obvious
that I have better taste
and I choose better
You make the wheel keep spinning
and make me want to sing

You are the one to wake up with
and not just someone to go to sleep with
You make me so excited
that right now there is no better option
to be happy in the whole city
than to live with you

There is no rush,
let’s get by and keep going,
we’ll find a way,
we don’t need to overthink it
There is no rush,
let’s get by and keep going,
we’ll find a way,
and the rest doesn’t matter

And I’m thinking of when you’ll come

After a time of adventures
of escapes and celebrations
of lionesses and mermaids
and being distracted from waiting
I see that zeal doesn’t motivate me anymore
and I look for a long-term plan again

Thirty-two years waiting for you
and fifty more if necessary
but the world is going to shit
and I’m thinking of when you’ll come
Because the world is going to shit
and without you it will eat me
Because the world is going to shit
and when you get here it might be too late

that the best is to come

Saturday morning
snuggling in bed
‘cause with your eyes near
there is nothing to worry about

and the fuses blow
if we are not living now
one of the most

There will never be another you

There will be many other nights like this
And I’ll be standing here with someone new
There will be other songs to sing
Another fall, another spring
But there will never be another you

There will be other lips that I may kiss
But they won’t thrill me like yours used to do
Yes I may dream a million dreams
But how can they come true
If there will never ever be another you

Yes I may dream a million dreams
But how can they come true
If there will never ever be another you

La mirada de la gent que no pot més

The look of people who can’t take it anymore

The beauty of people who don’t know they have it multiplies just like it divides for those who know theirs too much

There is a gravitational force in you
a sadness that feels like home

The look of people who can’t take it anymore
and they hold on, and hold on.

Crumbling in a tired pace
the wrong shortcut
and lacking a clear path
hope makes me hopeless

You send me axes and hearts in equal parts
I know, I know
but now is my turn and I don’t want to think of anything and take a breath, and take a breath

But there is a gravitational force in you
a void
and you send me axes and hearts in equal parts, I know
and I take a breath, and I take a breath.

I’ve been smoothing the ground

En càmera lenta

In slow motion

I will use the full arsenal
and all the assault troops
I will ask for all the favors
and I will infiltrate all the agents
and I will pull the most adequate strings
and the most genius strategists
will work by my side
and in the meantime,
in slow motion and with shining eyes,
the people in the audience will be cheering for me

I will do everything necessary,
everything I can
until you see it completely clear
and all the effort will have counted
thus then it will rain confetti
and there will be fireworks
and you will suddenly feel it
and you will smile in slow motion
and with shining eyes we will look at each other
and finally, it will happen

And I see it clear
I imagine it and I see it clear
but I will do it tomorrow
but I will do it tomorrow

Amics dels cirerers

Friends of the cherry trees

Breaking each other’s femurs
unintentionally.
It’s the wrong symbiosis
in which we have fully entered
So much true love that it becomes right
and so little conjunction.
Daisies burn with passion
they were all made from carton

I really do love you
and I know you love me, too,
but this isn’t tolerable anymore.
These are now thorny bushes.
Keeping the composure.
Sewing back the tears
we outline new guides
so as not to be ungrateful.

So we can keep seeing each other
cause our thing has been good
and not lose hope
of being friends with the cherry trees.
But we keep breaking our femurs
Unintentionally.
It’s the wrong symbiosis.
Someday we will learn.

Let winter come

It’s hard to believe
This can’t last
It’s too good to be true

Juggling
to not look down
but with you it’s so much easier
that now I “barely” care

Let winter come, we are ready

Serotonin
and fear in equal parts
It isn’t normal if everything is flat

I always get scared
when everything is going too well
the further up I go
the bigger the blow will be

But let winter come, we are ready.

In a strange dream

In a strange dream
the world was a better place

Nobody ever cried with impotence there
Everyone had an option
and there was no bad faith anywhere
And with culture for everyone
the problems about gender,
origin or orientation
were over
and everyone could believe
and love and be or feel whatever they wanted
and money and power and violence
were never the goal anywhere
and it was beautiful.

Collaborating, not competing
and nature was sacred
everyone shouted their surroundings
and no one had to
be cold, hungry or scared
and it was a beautiful world
and it was everyone’s

And there the only sorrows
were because of death and love.
There the only sorrows
were because of love and death.

In a strange dream
the world was a better place
so much better.

fuck off

Benvingut als Pirineus

Welcome to the Pyrenees

Follow two eyes until you crash
It’s supposed to rain tomorrow
Rules to live without rules
Such losers but so cool
I’m seduced like that, in pajamas
Let’s travel Europe by train
‘Cause today I belong to whoever wants me
Welcome to the Pyrenees

But right now I’m a Friday
and a Sunday is what you want
In reality I’m looking for THE Sunday
but for now I raise dust
giving roses for fun
‘cause the best sun is winter’s sun
And with just one phrase in mind:
“Let them say what they want,
because if we think what they’ll say
we will never do anything”

Between craving and brotherhood
Between volcanoes and viewing points
Between bed sheets and beekeepers
Between YouPorn and More Than Words

Welcome to the Pyrenees!

abisme cavall hivern primavera i tornar (2017)

CD 1

Pareidolia

(instrumental)

Diguem blat!

Let’s say wheat!

(NOTE: In Catalan, there is a saying “No diguis blat fins que no sigui al sac i ben lligat”, which translates to “Don’t say wheat until it’s in the bag and neatly tied”. It has the same meaning as the English saying “Don’t count your chickens until they’ve hatched.”)

Only you and I see this horse
and everyone knows it
But you pretend that you don’t see it
and make the woods burn

Please let it rain heavily
and make it erase all of your fears

Let’s say wheat! Let’s say wheat! (Let’s count chickens!)
And fuck the bag (and fuck waiting for them to hatch)
we are tired of waiting
cause it’s time to stop being tired
of being tired

Please let it rain heavily
and make it erase all of our fears

Hurricanes and barricades
so it will be everyone’s moment

Please let’s make it rain heavily
and let’s deep clean the world
please let’s make it rain heavily
and let the sun finally rise.

O només sóc jo?

Or is it just me?

There are days that it isn’t enough with this
and it isn’t ambition it’s boredom
a big black hole of emptiness
that swallows everything
that takes everything away

I burn hopes at the speed of light
that expire and I create new ones
and like this till infinity.
Albums and tours and flings and music videos
to feed the void
to wake up in the mornings

and on the rebound the equation that brought me to
live off singing my miseries is
a spiral that doesn’t help at all.

Are we all lost or is it just me?

An apartment with light
and someone to feel at home with

Are we all lost or is it just me?

Que vingui l'hivern

Let winter come

It’s hard to believe
This can’t last
It’s too good to be true

Juggling
to not look down
but with you it’s so much easier
that now I “barely” care

Let winter come, we are ready

Serotonin
and fear in equal parts
It isn’t normal if everything is flat

I always get scared
when everything is going too well
the further up I go
the bigger the blow will be

But let winter come, we are ready.

En un somni estrany

In a strange dream

In a strange dream
the world was a better place

Nobody ever cried with impotence there
Everyone had an option
and there was no bad faith anywhere
And with culture for everyone
the problems about gender,
origin or orientation
were over
and everyone could believe
and love and be or feel whatever they wanted
and money and power and violence
were never the goal anywhere
and it was beautiful.

Collaborating, not competing
and nature was sacred
everyone shouted their surroundings
and no one had to
be cold, hungry or scared
and it was a beautiful world
and it was everyone’s

And there the only sorrows
were because of death and love.

and everything falls back into place.
The abyss is so big
and we are so small
that it’s not scary anymore
that everything is fine.

Saturn up there
saying “calm down
everything is OK”
Saturn up there
saying “calm down”
and I do as it says

It’s seeing Saturn and everything in place
The abyss is big and we are small
so small

Quan tots els ocells ja no hi són

When all the birds are gone

It’s strange
how someone
with so many friends and acquaintances
and colleges and family members
can feel so lonely

It’s odd
what emptiness does
Nothing is right, nothing is enough
to satiate you when it rains inside of you,
when all the birds are gone.

Jo i la il·lusió

Me and excitement

Me and excitement
I never learn
30.000 times
but I never learn

I see backlights
but they are opacities
I hear violins
but they are keyboard sounds
And when I feel the wind
it is fans
ashes and smoke,
substitutes
of what I’m waiting for.

Me and excitement
I never learn
30.000 times
but I never learn.

A l'altre costat

On the other side

I’m in the leaves (and I know it)
that fall when you go for a walk
I’m the rays of light
that shine on you in the concerts

I’m also in the sea air
that comes and blows your hair
and the depressive ice cream
that you eat in the couch when you can’t take it anymore

I’m in all of these and much more
but I can’t want what I don’t want
the chemistry is so relentless,
unfair and cruel…
I know it

I’m inside your headphones
when you get goose bumps
and I’m in your bed sheets
when you melt with pleasure

I’m in all of these and much more
but I can’t want what I don’t want
even though I have always waited
for someone to want me
like you do

I have also seen for many years
someone in everything in the world
and now I’m at the other side
but I know what it’s about,
what can we do…

El millor de marxar és tornar

The best part about leaving is coming back

This is a fire
The best part about leaving is coming back
Let’s sing “Strawberry fields”
like there is no tomorrow

cause I love life

Never has a Wednesday
been such a big day
Cause the world has gotten smaller
and we have to take advantage of it

Wow, I love life

Poetic and happiness,
excitement, love and clan
and let the impossible live
yes, hurray the impossible

Free fall
is what I am when no one sees me
Some afternoons
but never ends up being anything serious
cause I love life

Antiheroes

Let’s throw the movies,
the imaginary and the unconscious to the fire
Memories that we haven’t lived
and we will never live
crammed in the middle of the head

But if we are antiheroes in music,
in life and in money
why the hell should we be different
now with love?

The American dream has never existed
but we’ve believed it till the end,
and just you wait!
The abyss between fiction and reality
explodes when you get older

Cause if we are antiheroes in politics,
in life and in money,
why the hell should it be different
just now, now with love?

Why the hell did you take so long?

And thank goodness you have arrived

Just like who has never known failure
will never know what winning is

But, wait a second
if I like you
and you like me
then it is obvious
that I have better taste
and I choose better
You make the wheel keep spinning
and make me want to sing

You are the one to wake up with
and not just someone to go to sleep with
You make me so excited
that right now there is no better option
to be happy in the whole city
than to live with you

There is no rush, let’s get by and keep going,
we’ll find a way, we don’t need to overthink it
There is no rush, let’s get by and keep going,
we’ll find a way, and the rest doesn’t matter

I would like to go to war

But we sing in colors
and we paint with flowers
and nothing happens here
We are all running away from the pain
covering up the darkness
but don’t let it show too much

But behind closed doors
worries and sadness,
loneliness or fear flood everyone

But we sing in colors
and we paint with flowers
and nothing is happening here
We are all running away from the pain
covering up the darkness
but don’t let it show too much

Forever

X-ray of nothingness:

Thousands of leftovers making a desert
Clothes on the floor and bed sheets taken off
burned out light bulbs and very cold

and there in a corner pictures with you and me
and in the corner pictures with you and me

and empty cans, dried up dishes,
and cables, cases and instruments
more dirty clothes, more desert
and crumbled up paper everywhere
and tissues with unborn kids
and blankets and stagnant air
and that sweatshirt
that doesn’t know how to smell like you anymore

and there in a corner pictures with you and me
and in the corner pictures with you and me

And meanwhile inside of my head
I see you saying: “forever”

Goodbye alarms, goodbye thousands of meetings,
goodbye 15.000 emails in the morning.
Goodbye calls, burdens and tension,
goodbye, you have seen enough of me.
‘Cause today I’m leaving, I abandon,
I’m quitting, it’s enough, this game is over!
It’s so intense, and everything is so much clearer
when you live like the world was ending on Thursday
That I want a new start,
That today I get a new start.

Goodbye looking out for the future,
goodbye counting the money
that is left in the jar.
Goodbye complaining about everything,
goodbye seeing it all dark
and getting angry at the world.
‘Cause today I’m leaving, I abandon,
I’m quitting, it’s enough, this game is over!

How can it be that you
don’t see it all clear
if you make anyone shine inside
when they look at you in the eyes?

But inside of you there is a wolf
that from time to time
bites your heart
and leaves it in pieces

You light everything up
only by being who you are
you make everything that was dark
seem clear

But inside of you there is a wolf
that makes you only its

and I will pull the most adequate strings
and the most genius strategists
will work by my side

I will do everything necessary,

and all the effort will have counted
thus then it will rain confetti
and there will be fireworks
and you will suddenly feel it

The look of people who can’t take it anymore

just like it divides for those who know theirs too much

There is a gravitational force in you
a sadness that feels like home

The look of people who can’t take it anymore
and they hold on, and hold on.

Crumbling in a tired pace
the wrong shortcut
and lacking a clear path
hope makes me hopeless

You send me axes and hearts in equal parts
I know, I know
but now is my turn and I don’t want to think of anything
and take a breath, and take a breath

But there is a gravitational force in you
a void
and you send me axes and hearts in equal parts, I know
and I take a breath, and I take a breath.

De bosc I

(instrumental)

Un gran riu de fang

A big river of mud

If I could choose a superpower,
paying attention to my unconscious,
I would say I am sure:
I would like to stop time

and that it would
forever be the present
it’s not that everything is clear
or that everything is going so well,

but unfortunately
I can see what is coming:

Maybe we will never see each other again
and some won’t be here anymore.
We will all have grown up
and most will have changed.
And the places we now go to
a lot of them will have closed
or maybe the whole world
will be a big river of mud.

Maybe we will never see each other again

I only do what I can.

Reviewing what I have lived.

And I can leave

All these years,

all these ties
all these vinyl

There are humans making noise
Down there, in the valleys.

and they insult each other like never before.
There are leaders and rules
down there, in the valleys
that make you quickly
put your hands on your head.

And everything is a lie,
Everything is artificial.
People forget

And up here in this tree
everything seems clearer.
Life existed
before these crazy ones.

Life is not them,
Life is much more.

and enjoying people

and living further away
and living strongly
and living better
and living peacefully
and ending up being from the woods.

And living further away
and living strongly
and living slower
and living peacefully
and ending up being from the woods.

Bye, bye, good-bye

Tots som molt millors

We are all much better

Everything is better if we are happy.
Everyone is happier if everything is better.

We are all better when we are happy

2010 (2010)

PROTAGONISTES

Protagonists

Protagonists
each in their own world
and at the same time
extras in everyone else’s world.

All intercrossing each other…

Thousands of lives,
of gravity centers.
Millions of trails,
infinite plans for the future.

ENCARA NO

Not yet

Year after year
I’ve been smoothing the ground
and now that I’ve almost got it
the only thing that worries me
is that everything will end here
and it will end like this.
No, not yet, please.
please, not like this.
Don’t let it end here,
don’t let it end like this,
don’t let it be me.
Please not me.

TOTHOM DORM

Everyone is asleep

It’s been late for a while,
it’s raining outside
and the city sleeps.

Slowly,
peacefully
I write songs.

I think of my friends
sleeping in their beds.
Placid I smile.
Everything is beautiful like this.
It is better slowly.
Thank you all.

VACANCES

Holidays

The trees are very far
and it shouldn’t be like this
I want long nights
under August’s starry sky

I want to be strolling through the paths
or wrapped up in the woods.
Take naps near the river
or keep the fireplace.

AMICS DELS CIRERERS

Friends of the cherry trees

Breaking each other’s femurs
unintentionally.
It’s the wrong symbiosis
in which we have fully entered
So much true love that it becomes right
and so little conjunction.
Daisies burn with passion
they were all made from carton

I really do love you
and I know you love me, too,
but this isn’t tolerable anymore.
These are now thorny bushes.
Keeping the composure.
Sewing back the tears
we outline new guides
so as not to be ungrateful.

So we can keep seeing each other
cause our thing has been good
and not lose hope
of being friends with the cherry trees.
But we keep breaking our femurs
Unintentionally.
It’s the wrong symbiosis.
Someday we will learn.

L'ÀVIA HA FET NEVAR

Grandma made it snow

Snow falls slowly
and leaves everything white.
It snows everywhere
and it’s because grandma is leaving.

2010

…and if everything is a joke
it is worthless to get angry.
If the world turns at other people’s pace
it is better if we enjoy it.

To shit with big projects,
sacrifices and struggles.
To crap with transcendence.
Now I only want to sing.

MOLT BÉ

Very well

This started very well
and everything has gone very well
and now it has also finished very well.

What else could we ask for?
you and I have been very good
and from now on we will be, too

Very good,
everything has been very good.

TOTS ELS BUITS DEL MÓN

Every void in the world

Taking consciousness of all the empty space
and all the air that floods the holes
that there are in between every thing
and in between you and I.

The air between you and I.
The air that fills all the voids in the world.

LO NORMAL NO ÉS LO NORMAL

What is normal is not normal

Taking into account
that what is normal is not normal
the only thing I want
is to be left alone.

Seeing what things
are like
I think it’s best
if I leave.

I wish things were very different.

But it can’t be
and I can’t do anything about it.
The only thing I know is that I won’t come back.
And I won’t come back.

ALL IS FULL OF LOVE

You’ll be given love.
You’ll be taken care of.
You’ll be given love.
You have to trust it.

Maybe not from the sources
you have poured yours.
Maybe not from the directions
you are staring at.

Trust your head around.
It’s all around you.
All is full of love.
All around you.

(All is full of love!)
You just aint receiving.
Your phone is off the hook.
Your doors are all shut.
In any language.
All is full of love!
