Work inspired by the following poem of catalan poet Joan Salvat-Papasseit with some improvised nature. 

Give me your hand 

Give me your hand because we'll walk along the shore  
just near to the sea 
beating,
we'll have the measure of everything 
just telling us we are still in love.

Thar far barques and the one on the sand 
will take a faithful and discreet air,
anybody will watch us;
they'll watch new routes 
with the slow sight of distracted seeker.

Give me your hand and shelter your cheek 
on my chest, and don't fear anyone.
And palm trees will give us shade 
And seagulls under the bright sun. 

They will bring us salinity that soaks,
to love, everything near the sea:
and I, then, will kiss your cheek;
and the kiss will take us to the love game.

Give me your hand because we'll walk along the shore  
just near to the sea 
beating,
we'll have the measure of everything 
just telling us we are still in love.
