Musically inspired by "Virgenes del Sol" and "Bolivia" by Los Kjarkas, this song is a recognition of wanting change, and ultimately taking that desire to the maximum degree. To literally uproot one's self and go to a far and distant place to explore the world around. This song is sort of me talking to myself.


Veo los pasos que me enseñaron
Que acepté pero ahora los rechazo
Para que se renueve mi alma
Canto con fuerza esta canción

Quiero que lo que venga sea mejor
Cazo y apreso mi propio temor
Quiero que lo que venga sea mejor
Haré que cada momento sea eterno

Lanzo mi puño contra los vientos
Grito pa’ que escuche toda la tierra
Y para que no se olviden mi voz
Y que mi historia quede en la suya

Quiero que lo que venga sea mejor
Ruego que nos liberemos de la apatia
Que en la vejez mantengamos nuestra juventud
Aunque sea solo por un momento

Quiero querida que no te vayas
Que nos quedemos pa’ siempre mirando atrás
Que un día volvamos a donde se verá
La fuente eterna de tu sonrisa


I see the path that was handed to me
That I embraced, now I reject
So that my soul reignites
I sing this song with fury

I want what comes to be better
I hunt and trap my own fear
What may come, it should be better
I will make every moment eternal

I launch my fist into the winds
I scream so that they whole world can hear
And so that you all don’t forget my voice
And so that my story remains in hers

I want what comes to be better
I beg that we free ourselves from apathy
And in our old age, maintain our youth
If only just for a moment

Please don’t leave my dear
Let’s stay hear and look back forever
And one day, may we return to the place
Of the eternal fountain of your smile
