Yo vengo de un brumoso país lejano / I come from a distant misty country

Spanish

Yo vengo de un brumoso país lejano
regido por un viejo monarca triste…
Mi numen sólo busca lo que es arcano,
mi numen sólo adora lo que no existe;

tú lloras por un sueño que está lejano,
tú aguardas un cariño que ya no existe,
se pierden tus pupilas en el arcano
como dos alas negras, y estás muy triste.

Eres mía: nacimos de un mismo arcano
y vamos, desdeñosos de cuanto existe,
en pos de ese brumoso país lejano,
regido por un viejo monarca triste…

English Translation

I come from a distant misty country
governed by a sad old monarch…
My only muse searches for that which is arcane;
my only muse desires for what does not exist.

You cry for a distant dream,
you look for a love that no longer exists,
you lose your pupils in the arcane one
like two black wings, and you are very sad.

You are mine: We were born from the same arcane one
and we go, disdainful of what exists,
towards that distant misty country,
governed by a sad old monarch…
