Vida Mas Simple

For those stuck in the snow and hail and rain, I wanted to share a song for a lazy day:



The Spanish lyrics:

Un palmar
Baila con las brisas del mar
Y al amanecer
Se oye solo tranquilidad
Corazan
Tu latido pide volver
Tierra de mi amor
Tu recuerdo vive sin poder

Oh mi Dios desde el cielo escucha mi voz
Cuanto mas tengo que rezar pidiendo mi regreso y?

Vida mas simple la de ayer
Vida mas simple la de ayer

Un cafe
Era al precio de la amistad
Sin tener que hablar se ofrecia una mano fiel
La ninez repetaba sin preguntar
Y siempre al comer
La familia unida en el hogar

Vida mas simple la de ayer
Vida mas simple la de ayer
Vida mas dulce la de ayer
Con sabor a chocolate?
Vida mas simple la de ayer

And here is my best attempt at a translation. I'm going off of Spanish I haven't used regularly in about a decade, so anyone else, feel free to correct me.


A palm tree
Dances in the ocean breeze
And at dawn
It hears only peace.

(My?) Heart
Your beat asks to go back
to the land of my love
Your memory lives without being able to

Oh my God from heaven listen to my voice
How long do I have to ask to return there?

The simple life of yesterday
the simple life of yesterday

A cafe
It was the value of friendship
that, without having to speak, offered a hand
and respected without question from childhood
and always ate
with the family together at home


The simple life of yesterday
the simple life of yesterday
With the taste of chocolate?
The simple life of yesterday

Not perfect let alone eloquent, but perhaps it gets the point across? A beautiful song of longing, I think.
