lyrics

Barcelona (Chris Padera)

08001 is where I lived in el Raval
Where the big steel cat greeted every day
I touched its nose not the shiny balls

My mind supersitious asked for joy
This is what I found in my barrio
With Mary Jane and an absinth down
Happiness en el Doctor Dou

Beware of the dark when the hookers rob
On the way down the Ramblas or in el Gotico
Too many nights dirty as beautiful
I lost myself on Plaza Reial

Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona
Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona

I sat down at the beach and I stared at the stars
With an Estrella in my hand and a crappy guitar
Walked up to the Bunkers of el Carmel
To watch the sun go down and I still pretend

That the sun will always shine
In the city that I love

The girls, the wine, the nights I had
I lived a life I won’t regret
A dream came true when Messi played
Dancing in the streets of el Raval

Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona
Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona

One rainy morning my head aches I’m wide awake
Blurry pictures on the wall
I realized the dream I lived has found an end
Oh Barcelona I will return
I promise to

Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
Te quiero hasta siempre mi querida Barcelona
Oh Barcelona my ciudad my amor mi vida
I’d like to stay forever in the city of Barcelona
