about

This song is for Bea, who both inspired it and also helped me with the translation.

I met Bea on the subway one evening on my way to meet some friends for a beer. She was wearing a colorful knit scarf that reminded me of the long toe socks my family used as Christmas stockings. I tried to explain this in Spanish just as her stop came up and gave her my number saying I hoped to see her again.

Two days later I was playing at a little cafe near my house with Brendan Bauer and during our first break the server handed me a note written on a napkin. It said, "Do you remember me?" I looked up and there was Bea at a table with some friends.

Turns out she lived just around the corner and had no idea I would be there. We went out for drinks that night and she told me she had no clue what I was talking about on the subway when we met. The next day we went for a ride on my motorcycle and I was sold.

The lyrics in English goes something like this:

Chorus:
I saw you
I talked to you
I wanted you
And I promised you

The second and third verses are basically the same in both languages:

And now it turns, another day
Expectations fall away
And all my friends will have their say
Another dream has gone astray

The bridge goes like this:

You knew the truth
I gave you happiness
You could not escape
And wanted freedom
I want to forget
Nobody knows what will happen now

lyrics

Yo Te Vi (Gladstone, Mena, Girio, 2010)

Chorus
Yo te vi
Yo te hablé
Yo te deseabá, deseabá
Y te prometí

Ahora empieza un nuevo dia
Illusiones perdidas
Todos mis amigos, dicen lo que quieren
Otro sueño ya seha ido

Chorus

And now it turns, another day
Expectations have fallen away
And all my friends will have their say
Another dream has gone astray

Bridge:
Tu sabias la verdad
Yo te di felicidad
No podias escapar
Y querias libertad
Yo deseo olvidar
Nadie sabe donde estas

Chorus X 2
