Lyrics

Lyrics (Spanish):
Yo soy periodista
Llego acá no hay nada
Cerrada en cuatro paredes
En esta ciudad

Empecé a meditar
Como un intento desesperado
Eso es lo que hace
La gente que está perdida

Soy yo y el silencio
Me he estado esfumando
Quiero conseguir un nuevo camino
No puedo seguir perdida

Estaba lloviendo
Y salí con la capucha puesta
Un muchacho en la calle
Me pide y yo no tengo

Me dice – que te pasa
Digo nada, podemos hablar?
Me cuenta su historia
Yo le digo de la mía

Soy yo y el silencio
Me he estado esfumando
Quiero conseguir un nuevo camino
No puedo seguir perdida

Hice fotos y fotos y fotos
Volteé la cámara hacia mi
Voltearla fue traumático—
No me gustó lo que vi

Solo hubo algo
Que me dijo – ya estás lista
Conseguí mi mejor compania
Que soy yo misma.

Soy yo y el silencio
Me he estado esfumando
Quiero conseguir un nuevo camino
No puedo seguir perdida

(English):
I’m a reporter
I arrive here and there is nothing
I’m enclosed within four walls
In this city

I began to meditate
As a desperate attempt
That is what
Lost people do

It’s me and the silence
I have been evaporating
I want to find a new way
I can’t continue to be lost

It was raining
And I left with my hood up
A boy in the street
Asks me for money and I have none

He asks me, “What’s wrong with you?”
I say, “Nothing. Can we talk?”
He tells me his story
And I tell him mine

It’s me and the silence…

I took photos and photos and photos
I turned the camera around toward myself
It was traumatic
I didn’t like what I saw

It’s me and the silence…

It was just something
That told me “Now you’re ready.”
I gained the best companionship:
Myself

It’s me and the silence…
