Jueves 11M – La oreja de Van Gogh

This song is based on real life. It relates a love story, which stars in a train and finishes also there, because of the terrorist attack on 11th March, 2004 in Madrid.

This piece of music talks about a girl, the way she fells in love in that train and how she interacts with the boy she likes everyday there.

It clearly represents love, but also sadness. Not just beacause of the fact that they have never spoken but because everybody who listen this song knows what it is about and the feeling that this incident evokes.

The main space where the story takes place is the train. Moreover, the author talks about how the train arrives to the tunnel, which is a metaphor, as it also represents how their lifetime ends.

“Si fuera más guapa
Y un poco más lista
Si fuera especial
Si fuera de revista
Tendría el valor
De cruzar el vagón
Y preguntarte quién eres.
Te sientas enfrente
Y ni te imaginas
Que llevo por ti
Mi falda más bonita
Y al verte lanzar
Un bostezo al cristal
Se inundan mis pupilas”

“Y ya estamos llegando
Mi vida ha cambiado
Un día especial
Este 11 de marzo
Me tomas la mano
Llegamos a un túnel
Que apaga la luz

Te encuentro la cara
Gracias a mis manos
Me vuelvo valiente
Y te beso en los labios
Dices que me quieres
Y yo te regalo
El último soplo de mi corazón”
