ALL THAT I ASK OF YOU GOD (Sólo Le Pido A Dios – Sung in English) May 8, 2014

Filed under: León Gieco,Marcos Extranjero — spanishpoplyrics @ 10:40 am

Here is my singable version of the song in the previous post, a protest anthem written by the Argentine León Gieco. See the previous post for my literal translation. Anyway, I hope you like this version…

Update: I have recorded a better version (above) with a video of footage of the Dresden bombings of 70 years ago.

ALL THAT I ASK OF YOU GOD

.
All that I ask of you God
Is that the suffering doesn’t leave me indifferent
That death won’t find me, my body dry and rough
Alone and empty, and not having done enough
.
All that I ask of you God
Is that injustice doesn’t leave me indifferent
That they won’t slap me again across the face
And make me feel like I am in the claws of fate
.
All that I ask of you God
Is that the war doesn’t leave me indifferent
It’s a monster stamping on humanity
Crushing the innocent, people like you and me
.
All that I ask of you God
Is that corruption doesn’t leave me indifferent
The traitors may be few, but what they left
Here for the masses to repay, we can’t forget
.
All that I ask of you God
Is that the future doesn’t leave me indifferent
Despair is what can make you want to leave
Your own culture, even your own country
.

    beautiful! A fine translation and I like your voice. I am going to hear Leon Gieco in concert on Friday with my spanish class! I hope he sings it!
