One year after the release of “Principios”, Cepeda offers an exceptional re-release version of his first album, now titled «Nuestros Principios».

Lyrics

Below you can find the English lyrics of all 9 new songs. These are adaptations of the original lyrics that, most of the time, it is impossible to translate exactly from Spanish to English. We format de lyrics as they are write down on the official album booklet.

Mi Reino (My Kingdom)

I can feel like a giant. The protagonist of this tale. The King of this savage Kingdom. You make a Universe out of a verse. Slowly, time goes by slowly with you. With you everytime is the moment to make colours out of the gazes. And you, the one that knows where I sank. The one that save me without a wheel. And we look at each other face to face. And I want to wake up like yesterday. Burning every curve of your skin. Ending without a scratch. Laughting between kisses. And I want to remeber you as yesterday. Naked with my backhand clothes. You burn down my kingdom. You are my Universe. I dare you to make this night last forever. That our story would be a legend. To be your slave and you, my queen. Repeat.

Fuimos Vida (We Were Life)

Maybe I could stop time. To have only a few minutes to tell you what I tfeel. And even if you are not here, the “exit” don’t hurt anymore. Because nobody knows how beatiful is the moment when you write down life. We were two colours, but never grey. If anytime they ask if all ended I will answer that a heart never dies. No, don’t let your way of look at me fade away. And the one that looks at you now can do it with the door open because I don’t see anything anymore. I will ask you that you don’t do it. That your way of hugging me last forever. Ant that your kisses and caresses don’t fall out because there are life for the one that have them. For the one that have them. Maybe we trusted the rest of the world that, from a image, create their own freedom and belived that it was their own story. That our shadows merged but it wasn’t the same sun. We were two colours but never grey. Repeat. If anytime they ask if we were two (people) I will answer that there was only one heart. No, don’t let your way of look at me fade away. And the one that looks at you now can do it with the door open because I don’t see anything anymore. I will ask you that you don’t do it. That your way of hugging me last forever. Ant that your kisses and caresses don’t fall out because there are life for the one that have them. For the one that have them
