Before Waking Up (Antes de Acordar)

English translation

Before Waking Up

Before slowly opening my eyes
Before stretching my body
Before jumping out of bed and brushing my teeth
Before having the first decent thought
 
Which words will I say when my mouth opens up?
Which feelings will start existing in my heart?
With whom was I dreaming so deeply before waking up,
When the ideas start getting messed up?
 
What if I decide that I'll burn in the fire?
If I go back to bed and wrap myself in the blankets?
If I find the right gesture and move?
If I throw myself out of the window and don't die?
 
Before spilling some coffee and milk
Before taking some time reading the papers
Before feeling the whole world stuck in my throat
Before knowing that it's useless
 
What if I decide that I'll burn in the fire?
If I go back to bed and wrap myself in the blankets?
If I find the right gesture and move?
If I throw myself out of the window and don't die?
 
Before feeling the whole world stuck in my throat
Before knowing that it's useless
 
What if I decide that I'll burn in the fire?
If I go back to bed and wrap myself in the blankets?
If I find the right gesture and move?
If I throw myself out of the window and don't die?
 
Before slowing opening my eyes
Before stretching my body
Before jumping out of bed and brushing my teeth
Before having the first decent thought
Before having the first decent thought
