Jackson Browne – A Song For Barcelona Lyrics

A Song For Barcelona Lyrics – Jackson Browne

I think I must have lost my way a long long time ago
Somewhere in the distance between love and business, I don’t know
Didn’t have that far to go to find my pleasure though
Lovers like islands in an archipelago
Set in a sea of time
Love is a place you find
Where when two people rhyme, they begin to grow
Learning the other ninety-nine words for snow

This is a song for Barcelona, city of gravity and light
City that gave me back my fire and restored my appetite

I hear the sounds of youth up all night in the plaza
Under the sleepless eyes of the grandmothers on the terrassa
In the streets of Gràcia and on the Ramblas
I see the searching eyes and youthful bodies pass
And my own vanished youth
Becomes my central truth
Though I no longer care
The truth is everywhere
That soon the world I love will no longer be anywhere

This is a song for Barcelona, city of Gaudíand Jujol
City that ignited my desire, and temporarily, my soul

They come from Ireland, they come from Africa
They come from the U.S., they come from Canada
They come from Norway, they come from China
They come from Uruguay and from Bulgaria
They come for pleasure
They come for freedom
For the chance encounter
Or the revelation
They come for business
Or for adventure
They fall in love with the information
About the world and about each other
They dream, and when they wake up
They’re not in Spain anymore

This is a song for Barcelona for architecture and fútbol
And for the streets that gave me refuge
In my escape from rock and roll

Per justícia I la terra, ara som sis milions I un
