Was it yesterday I lit a candal on the 40th year?
Was it yesterday we danced a waltz
A stranger and myself
To mariachi music
While drunks puked outside
I sang and played guitar
Yes it was yesterday alone
No one noticed me at all
Was it yesterday I lit a candal on the 30th year?
Leaving love forever for the sake of love
Life is like the Barrancas
Where she dies
Where he goes on alone
Where the keys tangle
The notes clash
Was it yesterday I lit a candal on the 20th year?
So sure of my future
Knowing every story I would live
Certain of the years
Ungrateful for my meagre gifts
Was it yesterday I lit a candal on the tenth year?
Withdrawn from a world that made no sense
Crying for everything lost
How much more would fall
From the tree of my life
Until leaves barely cling now
Was it just a moment ago I lit a candal on the 50th year?
Amazed I still exist
Looking forwards to such small dreams
Like lighting a candal for the next year
That will occur in less than a moment.
