Seriously haunted

I posted this video two days ago and I am going to post it again. I really cannot get it out of my ears, my head, my thoughts. The music, the story, it's all just too strong. I did try to translate the lyrics, but my Italian is way too weak to do that and my Spanish is completely non-existent, so I just tried to come up with some text/story that somehow represents the original lyrics.

I really don't know why it got so deep. Igor must be going crazy, because he probably needs to hear this song way too often for his taste. Although he likes it. Just a freak in me.....

Juanes ft. Negrita - Dove le pietre sono mine

There are roads around the world

Where you find mines instead of stones.

Mines which destroy the flesh

As it touches the ground

And leave all the hopes scattered.

A child's smile gets lost in the storm

It's impossible not to cry.

These stories happen all over the world.

Stories that just destroy the innocence.

Willow trees witnessed

Too many years of violence.

And the sea is not blue,

It's dirty with blood and soil.

But as rivers run down the mountains,

People are coming full of hope.

Mothers hold their children, with tears of love,

With tears of dignity.

But as rivers run down the mountains,

People are coming full of hope.

Wounded people and their children

Looking for a sanctuary,

Looking for a place,

Where they can dream and love.

»We do not deserve to be forgotten,«

»Please hear our cries.«

Says a man in tears,

His head wrapped in bleeding bandages.

But still...

There's hope in his hands.


Ok, I am just throwing in this extra..... Live performance of the song during last year's Nobel Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway.
