SERÍA FELIZ
*
Si pudiera yo tenerte aquí 
Hablándome de nada
Y cuanto más, y cuanto más seguro 
Es lo que me falta
*
Si pudiera recuperar 
Lo que no me tocó 
Porque ya no hay
Porque llegué muy tarde 
Seguro es por ahí
*
Tiempo suficiente 
Me falla cada vez
Vida suficiente 
Me falla otra vez
*
Si sólo tuviera un lugar 
Para expresar mi necesidad
Y alguien escuchara 
Lo que tengo aquí eso sería
*
Si tuviera respeto de quienes 
No me toman en cuenta
Si sólo vieran 
De lo que soy capaz 
Es eso lo que me falta
*
Seguro así sería feliz
*
Si sólo tuviera el color
De quienes parecen disfrutar
Si el mismo me pintara
A mi parece es por ahi
I WOULD BE HAPPY
*
If I could have you beside me
Talking to me about nothing
And I’m surer and surer
It’s what I need
*
If I could recover 
the thing that didn’t touch me
because now there’s nothing
Because I arrived so late 
I’m sure it’s there
*
Enough time 
It always runs out 
Enough life
It runs out again 
*
If only I had a place
to express my needs
and someone listened
what I have here is what would be
*
If I had the respect of those people
who don’t take me into account
if only they saw
what I’m capable of
that’s what I need
*
I’m sure this way I would be happy 
*
If only I had the colour
Of those people who seem to be happy
That same colour would cover me
I think it’s around here
*
