STAY

Ella

She doesn’t know who she is

Trata de recordar

How she became the person she is now

Se pregunta millón de veces

But she can’t find the answer

Se encuentra atrapada en la soledad

Swirling through a black hole

Que no tiene fin



Forgetting the most important person

Que ha dejado atrás cuando creció

Her precious little buddy in crime

Quien la mira como una role model

Suddenly fragments of her memories appear

Enfrente de sus eyes



The long-lasting moments when she played

con su amiguito, su hermanito a los carritos

Having races against each other

Como si fueran racing through an open road

Feeling the wind softly hit against their round faces

Pero eso ya no existe

Ahora, technology and their differences

los han separado

Those memories then desaparecieron

like mist from a sprinkler on a windy day



En ese momento ella extiende su mano

Reaching out for the rose petal that

brushed contra su mejilla

Recuerda que tan frágil fue y sigue siendo

like the petal that’s easily torn apart

Su corazón y emociones se transformaron

into a sealed door

Losing her identity through the experience

Que estaba llena de engaños y mentira

Lie after Lie



Her trust and self-esteem came crashing down

Entonces decido crear a alguien

that would take her place

Alguien que es más fuerte y que tenga confianza

En ese transcurso, perdió lo que más valoraba

Her friendliness

Que la hacía feliz

Her innocent smile

La sonrisa tan brillante que hacía a su

heart shine like a star in moonlight

Sin embargo, eso es parte del pasado



Ahora solamente sonreiré cuando olvida todo

Forgetting that she’s still

Pero don’t worry about her

With time, ella estara como antes y

podrá mostrarle al mundo su único y verdadero ser

At least that what others have made her believe



Tiempo aveces no puede resolver lo imposible

It began the moment she let herself go

Porque en ese instante, todo su valor y su fuerza

diminished

Por estas razones, she stands behind that door

Thinking that esa puerta es una cortina

which someone will able to pull it down for her



Ella no puede revelarse

Because she’s afraid que ella no este

Esa young lady who she once cherished with joy

Por el momento la he perdido

When the times comes I’ll grabbed my courage

to race against my fear

Para ganar la carrera de encuentrala a Ella

y abrir aquella puerta

Which holds the happiness, the pathway

to pulling down that curtain

Que me liberara de mis cadenas


TRANSLATED VERSION

She

She doesn't know who she is

Tries to remember

How she became the person she is now

Asking herself a million of times

But shecan't find the answer

She finds herself trapped in loneliness

Swirling through a black hole

That has no end

 

Forgetting the most important person

That she left behind when grewing up

Her precious little buddy in crime

Who look at her as a role model

Suddenly fragments of her memories appear

In front of her eyes

 

The long-lasting moments when she played

with her little friend, her little brother with cars

Having races against each other

As if they were racing through an open road

Feeling the wind softly hit against their round faces

But that no longer exists

Now, technology and their differences has separated them

Those memories then disappeared

like mist from a sprinkler on a windy day

 

At that moment she extends her hand

Reaching out for the rose petal that

brushed against his cheek

Remembering how  fragile she was and continues to remain

like the petal that's easily torn apart

Her  heart and emotions transform

into a sealed door

Losing her identity through the experience

That was full of deceit and lying

Lie after Lie


Her trust and self-esteem came crashing down

Then she decides to create someone

that would take her place

Someone who is stronger and has confidence

In that course, she lost what she most valued

Her friendliness

Making her happy

Her innocent smile

The smile so bright that it made to its

heart shine like a star in moonlight

However, that is part of the past


Now she only smiles when she forgets everything

Forgetting that she's still there

But don't worry about her

With time, it will be as before and

she can show the world her unique and true self

At least that what others have made her believe
 

Time sometimes cannot solve the impossible

It began the moment she let herself go

Because in that moment, its value and its strength

diminished

For these reasons, she stands behind that door

Thinking that that door is a smokescreen

which someone will able to pull it down for her
 

She cannot reveal it

Because she's afraid that she is

That young lady who she once cherished with joy

By the time I've lost it

When the times comes I'll grabbed my courage

to race against my fear

To win the race of finding her

and opening  that door

Which holds the happiness, the pathway

to pulling down that curtain

That will free me from my chains
