Music Mood Today: La Raíz de Mi Tierra

Spanish lyrics via Google Play/English lyrics translated by Google Translate because I suck at languages.  Mine, yours, theirs, all.

 

I am looking where I come

What did I miss

I am looking where I come

Here is my root

 

What will become of me, if you’re not there

I come as a dream, I always believed

If I do not have here, close to me

Surround for me and I can continue

 

I want to be there

If the island sleeps

I want to see the waves

When the sea wakes

And take your air

In my blood

 

To give me time

In the pace and depth

A thirsty voice

Full of emotion

 

I bring tonight

The root of my land

I bring verses

Three people who dream

I give you the aroma and taste of my land

 

I give you time in the rhythm and depth

A voice filled with emotion thirsting

I bring tonight

The root of my land

I bring verses

Three people who dream

I give you the aroma and taste of my land

I bring my root

 

I am looking where I come

What did I miss

I am looking where I come

Here is my root

 

I am looking where I come

What did I miss

I am looking where I come

Here is my root

 

Why you lost girl

If your home is here

Here are your people and life

Your navel [umbilical] root

 

Here are your people and life

Your navel [umbilical] root

 

I went hungry myself away

Hunger to seek truth

First I lost my way

Today I turn on track

First I lost my way

Today I turn on track

 

Now I can sing you to me that bore me

I no longer feel invisible

Now I can be who I am

 

I am looking where I come

What did I miss

I am looking where I come

Here is my root

 

I am looking where I come

What did I miss

I am looking where I come

Here is my root

 

I am part of you

I’ll take blood

If once I went

It was to miss you

I always come back to you

I can not refuse

You’re my part hidden

I share your avante [no good translation]

 

When my time comes

I want to go back to your belly

I will be a new seed

Urgent full of dreams

I will be a new seed

Urgent full of dreams

 

I am looking where I come

What did I miss

I am looking where I come

Here is my root

 

I am looking where I come

What did I miss

I am looking where I come

Here is my root

 

I am looking where I come

What did I miss

I am looking where I come

Here is my root

 

I am looking where I come

What did I miss

I am looking where I come

Here is my root

 

I bring tonight

The root of my land

I bring verses

Three people who dream

I give you the aroma and taste of my land

I bring my root

 

Busco de dónde vengo
Que me perdí
Busco de dónde vengo
Que aquí está mi raíz

Qué será de mí, si no estás ahí
Vengo como un sueño, que siempre creí
Si no te tengo aquí, cerquita de mí
Para que me arropes y pueda seguir

Quiero estar ahí
Si la isla duerme
Quiero ver las olas
Cuando el mar despierte
Y llevar tu aire
Dentro de mi sangre

Para darme tiempo
En el ritmo y hondura
Una voz sedienta
Llena de emoción

Yo te traigo esta noche
La raíz de mi tierra
Yo te traigo los versos
Tres personas que sueñan
Te regalo el aroma y el sabor de mi tierra

Te regalo tiempo en el ritmo y hondura
Una voz sedienta llena de emoción
Yo te traigo esta noche
La raíz de mi tierra
Yo te traigo los versos
Tres personas que sueñan
Te regalo el aroma y el sabor de mi tierra
Traigo mi raíz

Busco de dónde vengo
Que me perdí
Busco de dónde vengo
Que aquí está mi raíz

Busco de dónde vengo
Que me perdí
Busco de dónde vengo
Que aquí está mi raíz

Por qué te perdiste niña
Si tu casa es por aquí
Aquí está tu raza y vida
De tu ombligo la raíz

Aquí está tu raza y vida
De tu ombligo la raíz

Con hambre me fui yo lejos
Hambre de buscar verdad
Primero perdí mi rumbo
Hoy me vuelvo a encaminar
Primero perdí mi rumbo
Hoy me vuelvo a encaminar

Ya le puedo cantar a la que a mí me parió
Ya no me siento invisible
Ya puedo ser quien soy yo

Busco de dónde vengo
Que me perdí
Busco de dónde vengo
Que aquí está mi raíz

Busco de dónde vengo
Que me perdí
Busco de dónde vengo
Que aquí está mi raíz

Soy parte de ti
Te llevo en la sangre
Si una vez me fui
Fue para extrañarte
Siempre vuelvo a ti
No puedo negarte
Tu mi parte oculta
Yo tu parte avante

Cuando llegue mi tiempo
Quiero volver a tu vientre
Seré una nueva semilla
Llena de sueños urgentes
Seré una nueva semilla
Llena de sueños urgentes

Busco de dónde vengo
Que me perdí
Busco de dónde vengo
Que aquí está mi raíz

Busco de dónde vengo
Que me perdí
Busco de dónde vengo
Que aquí está mi raíz

Busco de dónde vengo
Que me perdí
Busco de dónde vengo
Que aquí está mi raíz

Busco de dónde vengo
Que me perdí
Busco de dónde vengo
Que aquí está mi raíz

Yo te traigo esta noche
La raíz de mi tierra
Yo te traigo los versos
Tres personas que sueñan
Te regalo el aroma y el sabor de mi tierra
Traigo mi raíz

  1. Veronica, Thank you so much for the lyrics to this song. So very much is lost in the translation from Spanish to English. Spanish words have such passion, depth and sentimentality that English words could never capture. I am one of those people who can read and for the most part, understand Spanish, but can’t speak it. What a shame. Maybe when I move from here I can take a Spanish class. Do you have a link where I could listen to the Spanish version? Or I will try to look it up. Thank you also for the email of your trip to Europe, how wonderful that must have been! I would love to go to Europe to take in the architecture, food and music. I hope all goes well for you and yours this hot summer. I am still trying to get ready to sell my house and move on to the next chapter in life. I am doing well and so is my daughter Nina who lives with me. I love your emails and have saved them all. I am grateful that you have continued to research our family. You take care. Love & Prayers, Terry Ortega Abeyta Taylor

    1. Hi Terry, so nice to hear from you! I hear you, a lot was lost in translation and while I can’t speak Spanish I felt this song. I feel it so deeply. Here’s the link to the video, it is in Spanish https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8ZHvCTCoAc I also listen to it with the Spotify app if you stream on your phone or computer. Fingers crossed that your house sells so that you and your daughter can LIVE and adventure on!
