Theme included in the record work Iris, project commissioned by the singer Alícia Calzada in 2009.

A work tailored to its voice with 11 songs in Spanish, texts, music and arrangements created specifically for me and adapted to the timbre and the particularity of the voice of this original singer of Sant Feliu de Guíxols.

This particular piece speaks of the will to understand in general terms, the idea that when two parties want to understand each other, they do. Without wanting to specify with whom exactly, the song is addressed to anyone, it could be a family member, a friend, a neighbor or something deeper, like a look inside us.

A desire for understanding.

 

Recording the theme
 

We're going to understand each other well (Original version)

 
Para que podamos entendernos bien,
Necesitamos creer que nuestros vínculos podrán,
Superar la adversidad.
 
Todo lo que me perdí por falta de valor,
Si tengo razón, o soy yo quien me equivoqué,
¿No podríamos llegarnos a entender?.
 
La maravilla de estar
Compartiendo el mismo sueño entre los dos.
Si conseguimos olvidar
Toda forma de hacernos mal.
 
No hay más tiempo que el que se nos concedió,
No malgastémoslo echándonos reproches que al final,
Nada pueden arreglar.
 
Si no hay otra salida por donde escapar,
Pasarán los años y también nuestra ocasión,
De entendernos y aprender de nuestro error.
 
La maravilla de estar
Compartiendo el mismo sueño entre los dos.
Si conseguimos olvidar
Toda forma de hacernos mal.
 
La maravilla de estar
Compartiendo el mismo sueño entre los dos.
Si conseguimos olvidar
Toda forma de hacernos mal.
 
 
We're going to understand each other well (English translation)
 
So that we can understand each other well,
We need to believe that our links will,
Overcoming adversity.
 
All that I lost for lack of courage,
If I am right, or is it I who was wrong,
Couldn't we get to understand ?.
 
The wonder of being
Sharing the same dream between the two.
If we forget
Any way to get us wrong.
 
There is no more time than that which was granted to us,
Let us not waste our time reproaching ourselves that in the end,
Nothing can be fixed.
 
If there is no other way out,
The years will pass and also our occasion,
To understand and learn from our mistake.
 
The wonder of being
Sharing the same dream between the two.
If we forget
Any way to get us wrong.
 
The wonder of being
Sharing the same dream between the two.
If we forget
Any way to get us wrong.
