"LIGHTS"

La vida es una ilusión...

Amor eterno 

Yo te doy esta canción

Adiós no es te espero

All I see is

Lights

All I see is lights

Above me all brights lights 

Imma keep ma shine

Yea imma keep my shine

Wooh

Venga lo que venga

Tenga o no lo tenga 

Above me only I can see these beautiful bright lights

 

Cuando el sol

Nos deje repleto 

De energia

Quien va a descansar?

 

I walk with my struggles

I’m not in a bubble

So sorry my process is

Causing you trouble 

I dance where is dark

Looking for answers 

Piece to my puzzle 

My process

Is making you think that my pain is on purpose 

It’s not 

but i know that’s it’s scary to witness a loved one who stays in the dark 

 

Lights 

 

Everything part of the process 

no longer believing my stories are tragic  

I melted in music until I could focus attention 

on feeling emotions to battle 

the restless commotion imbedded in head 

feeling the feelings of headaches 

and pain on my chest 

thinking my mind is forsaken 

and therefore that my life

should be hurting like this 

Truly it’s not! 

Everything is 

Always aligned

The light always on 

But we often off 

Do you walk the line? 

if you’re not aligned 

your not in my line of sight 

So blocking my vision 

to issue Rendition 

of mission is 

missing permission from higher divisions. 

It’s Funny you think that I’m having illusions 

But all I do is give you

what they envision! 

 

Adios no es 

te espero

Yo te doy 

esta canción

Te espero 

Te espero

 

Bright lights 

All I see are bright lights 

Imma keep ma shine right

Venga lo que venga 

above me only bright lights 

Tenga o no lo tenga 

Imma keep ma shine right

Venga lo que venga 

Arriba above me only

Lights 

All I see is lights

Above me all these lights 

Imma keep ma shine

Yea imma keep my shine

wooh

Venga lo que venga

Tenga o no lo tenga 

Above me only I can see these beautiful bright lights

 

I walk with my struggle 

I’m not in a bubble

So sorry my process 

Causing you trouble

I get it I did it 

But still I dont regretting it 

Imma keep on being 

Cosa que brilla en lo oscuro

"...In a nutshell, this anthem is about reflecting on the integral part Latinos play in the economy, culture, and well being of the United States, as bi-cultural individuals. “The Message” puts forth the decree that it’s time to step up and re-examine representation in media, absence in Census gathering, and need for assimilation..."
