I still don’t know / todavía no sé

i still don’t know
how in the harsh night
such tenderness could spring

or how many times I’ve turned away
from knowing

I still haven’t found a simple song
to leave outside your window

and I’ve prayed to the wind to tell me
but it laughs in the trees
and leaves me in rags

and I still don’t know
how to live without questions

or how many ways I’ve walked like a beggar
reaching for something
I can never name

and I still haven’t found a simple song
to leave outside your window

I still don’t know how
to love without chains

—————

todavia no sé
cómo en la luz
tal ternua podria florecer

o cuantas veces he vuelto
lejos de saber

todavía no he encontrado una canción sencilla
para dejar fuera de tu ventana

y he orado al viento que me digale
pero se ríe en los árboles
y me deja envuelto en harapos

y todavia no sé
cómo vivir sin preguntas

o cuantos caminos he andado como un mendigo
alcanzando para algo
nunca puedo llamar

y todavía no he encontrado una canción sencilla
para dejar fuera de tu ventana

todavia no sé cómo
amar sin cadenas
