Letra traducida de On Top of the World

3 Ene

Por ser en inglés, muchas veces nos perdemos pequeñas joyas o frases que aparecen en canciones y nos pueden dar algo de ánimo. Hace unos días recibí una esperada postal de alguien a quien aprecio mucho y leí:

And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down
And it’s a long way up when you hit the ground
Get up now, get up, get up now.

No caí en la cuenta de que era parte de la canción “On Top of the World” de Imagine Dragons, que seguro que la habréis escuchado mucho últimamente. Aquí dejo un vídeo con la canción subtitulada al español y luego la letra en inglés.

Letra “On top of the world”

If you love somebody
Better tell them while they’re here ’cause
They just may run away from you
You’ll never know what went well
Then again it just depends on
How long of time is left for you
I’ve had the highest mountains
I’ve had the deepest rivers
You can have it all but life keeps moving

Now take it in but don’t look down

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world.

I’ve tried to cut these corners
Try to take the easy way out
I kept on falling short of something

I coulda gave up then but
Then again I couldn’t have ’cause
I’ve traveled all this way for something

Now take it in but don’t look down

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world. (x2)

And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down
And it’s a long way up when you hit the ground
Get up now, get up, get up now (x2)

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world.

  1. …but life keeps moving

    Seguro que no te lo dijeron por decir, ¿Verdad?

    A seguir caminando y menos rencor hacia uno mismo, que no va a haber un día de tu vida que vivas sin ti. No tiene sentido, ni merece la pena.
