Castle / Castillo Lyrics / Letra

Construimos un castillo en el aire, en el aire
We built a castle, we built a castle, in the air, in the air
sostenerlo fue imposible, era tarde, era tarde.
We couldn’t hold it, we couldn’t hold it, it was late, it was late.
Lo encendimos, lo avivamos, lo dejamos apagar
Yes, we light it. Yes, we fan it. Yes, we left it off, I know
lo probamos y fallamos. Es el precio que pagué
that we tried and we failed. That’s the price I paid
por querer más.
because of wanting more.

Nunca lo hubiera esperado, éramos “nosotros” y no era más “yo”;
I never expected it, suddenly we were “us” and it wasn’t “Me” alone,
de repente compartimos tanto, que nos comenzó a pesar.
in a little time we shared a lot and we began to feel that weight.
Suelo preguntarme como hubiera sido si hubiera luchado contra el destino,
I use to wonder how the story would have ended if I had strength enough to fight against fate
pero era una guerra desigual conmigo, contigo y contra los demás.
but it was an unequal war against me, against you, against everybody else.

Infinitas las lecturas. Son eternas las excusas.
Infinite points of view. The excuses are eternal.
Solo el cielo sabe porque no pasó… a mayores.
Heaven only knows why we didn’t… get worse.

Sonreí, miraste a otro lado pude imaginar que abandonaste el barco,
When I smiled at you, you looked away. That’s when I realized you abandoned our ship
fue tan gratis, libre el soñarlo pero costó renunciar.
although dreaming is entirely free, it cost too much to give it up.
He pasado por peores situaciones y mi Dios ha estado y seguirá estando
I have overcome harder situations and I know my God was and will be by my side
Porque cuando el mundo tira para abajo es para indicarme que yo estoy más alto
Because when the world pulls me down, is when I realize that I’m higher, higher
