Sevilla ....!

Toda I would like to write about a city which is magical to me, the city in question is Seville, or Sevilla as we call it in Spanish. I was about 7 years old the first time I was taken to Seville by dad. I remember with excitement how all the streets were very familiar to me. It y was the first time in my life I had a "deja-vu".

My family, and specially my dad, was very surprised that I knew the streets of Seville and that I was very familiar with its surroundings, history, and places.

It was like going back to a place that once was my home in the past, I even remember mentioning to my dad about buildings that are no longer in place. I remember telling my dad about me coming from the other side of the ocean (Africa) and that my face was covered like the people from Mauritania and the Berebers do still.


Sevilla is a lovely place for me, I hope G.D grants me the opportunity to take my son Ariel to Seville.


Media luna brillara
la navaja acechara
ojos bravos de mujer
Que veneno fue?

El corazon que Triana va
nunca volvera
Sevilla...
con que pasion te enamorara
y te embrujara
Sevilla...

Sola queda Soledad
la guitarra llorara
sortilegio sobre ti caera
y una lagrima
un perfume flor de azahar
a la hora de la verdad
pulso infame temblara
pero matara

Y al alba blanca le contare
lo que yo te ame
Sevilla...
bandido ay! muero yo por ti
tu paloma fui
Sevilla...
cantare
y enloquecere
sentire
puñales de placer...

El corazon que Triana va
nunca volvera
Sevilla...
con que pasion te enamorara
y te embrujara
Sevilla...
bandido ay! muero yo por ti
tu paloma fui
Sevilla...
Y al alba blanca le contare
lo que yo te ame
Sevilla...
bandido ay! muero yo por ti
tu paloma fui
Sevilla...
de oro y diamantes te descubrire
te seducire
Sevilla
como a una reina te tratare
y te adorare
Sevilla...
