NO WAY OUT

(Lyrics: Big Mama / Music: Big Mama & Victor Uris)


1.- Ningú no m´estima
jo no m´estimo tampoc
he perdut la direcció
sense poder parar enlloc.


2.- Donant voltes
sempre en cercle
equivocant-me tres cops
contra la mateixa pedra
que no se´m mou mai de lloc.


3.- D´aquest món
que tant m´ofega
quin valor té resistir?
quan el blanc jo el veig tan negre
i ni tan sols ho puc dir!


4.- Ningú no m´estima
jo no m´estimo tampoc
he perdut la direcció
sense poder parar enlloc.


5.- Quan el peu no toqui fre
i la inèrcia m´arrossegui cap al fons
si escolteu aquesta veu
sabreu fins on us he estimat jo.


6.- Ningú no m´estima
jo no m´estimo tampoc
he perdut la direcció
sense poder parar enlloc.


NO WAY OUT

(Translated by: Big Mama)


1.- Nobody loves me
I don´t love myself either
sometimes I feel I´m lost
but there´s no place to disappear.


2.- I´m walking round in circles
always tripping over
the same unpleasant stone
that remains on my way.


3.- Who can judge me for standing up
despite feeling world-weary?
What can I do if I see whiteness so black
but my opinion is ignored?


4.- Nobody loves me
I don´t love myself either
sometimes I feel I´m lost
but there´s no place to disappear.


5.- One day I won´t hold out
and I will fall deeply down
but as long as my voice sings
I hope it brings you love to get a way out.


6.- Nobody loves me
I don´t love myself either
sometimes I feel I´m lost
but there´s no place to disappear.
