English Translations for Limited Edition Save Me CD

Cielo Sin Color (Sky without Color) Track 2 from Save Me CD

 

I always believed in you

you must be faithful, you have to believe

Reality can not return

Everything has changed, I am not me.

There are so many memories in this beautiful world

Now, I’m alone with my thoughts, thinking only of you…Ballerina.

Change, Light, Fear, Goodbye.

You will never  see.

It’s always the moon who begins to sing!

Look at me girl, I can fly!

It’s always the moon who begins to sing!

Look at me girl, I can fly!

Every day I lose color, black and white I become

Every day I lose color, black and white I become

Every day that I want love, this is the sky without color

Every day that I want love, this is the sky without color

Oh God, Oh God, Goodbye!

Oh God, God, God, God.

 

Fuerza Sin Querer (Unintentional Force) Track 4 Save Me CD

 

I saw three ballerinas dancing inside the Sun

Two were burned and only one returned

She returned to remind me of her loneliness

She returned to take, not to give!

My hands are cold, I can’t touch you

I am a ghost that no one can hear

God, forgive me for what I’m about to do

Caresses of the sun, unintentional force

 

I don’t believe in anyone, only you
All my patience, now is through

I am the nightmare, little blue room, a trickle of blood

Sky without Color

 

This day is the body and blood of Christ

The holes in his hands a punishment of the people

This day is the beginning of the changes

This day is the body and blood of Christ

The holes in his hands a punishment of the people

 

Animal (Animal) Track 6 from Save Me CD

 

I don’t know if it was destiny that brought me here

In this small town, we don’t think that way

Every thing that happens comes from the hand of God

Happiness and punishment obey his voice

Animal, Animal, Animal

Animal, Animal, Animal

The Sky was black like his heart

The first victim, we found her on route 2

Naked and bloody like a piglet

(it’s obvious) This killer likes pain

Animal, Animal, Animal

Animal, Animal, Animal

(Kill him!)

In three months, we buried five more

As the chief of police, I had to find him

with little evidence, I entered into his home

God told me that I could murder him!

Animal, Animal, Animal!

Animal, Animal, Animal!

Animal, Animal, Animal!

Animal, Animal, Animal!

Kill Him!

Kill Him!

 

El Padre, El Hijo y mi Nena ( The father, the son and my girl) Track 7 Save Me CD

 

The light was turned off and I was left alone, alone thinking of you.

Your smile and love, life without pain, that’s the past for me

Oh… The Father, the Son and my Girl

Oh..The Father, The Son and my Girl

A white tomb, paper birds, old love songs

The cold dirt and beautiful flowers are blankets for you.

oh… The Father, the Son and my Girl

Oh..The Father, The Son and my Girl

(solo)

oh… The Father, the Son and my Girl
