Track Name: Montero de Halcones - Frio de la Aurora (Super Deluxe)
Llevo el frío
de la aurora
en mi
no me deja descansar

Translation:

I have the cold of dawn on me.
It doesn't let me rest.
Track Name: Montero de Halcones - Blancos Pajaros (We Whirled)
Gira la tierra en tu mano
Blancos pájaros están mirando

Cubre la flor de palabras
Ven y siéntate al lado del alba

Cose el cielo en tu plato
Déjalo

No lo busques tanto, déjalo
No lo apures tanto, déjalo
No lo vistas tanto, déjalo

Esta ahí, ¿lo puedes ver?
¿Lo puedes ver?, ya va a partir
No lo podrás nunca atrapar
Esta ahí, ¿lo puedes ver?

Maneja la tierra que gira
Blancos pájaros vuelan y miran

Sirve el cielo cosido
Mézclalo con hierro fundido

Translation:

Turn the earth in your hand
White birds are watching

Cover the flower with words
Come and sit beside the dawn

Sew the sky on your plate.
Leave it

Don't look for it so much, leave it
Don't rush it so much, leave it
Don't dress it so much, leave it.
Don't move it away so much, leave it

There it is, can you see?
Can you see? It's going to depart
You'll never going to catch it
There it is, can you see?

Handle the earth that turns
White birds are flying and watching

Serve the sewed sky
Mix it with cast iron
Track Name: Montero de Halcones - Duerme La Ciudad (Nadir Nigh)
Duerme la ciudad
No es necesario esperar

Signo, señal
Pronto verás
Lo que te trato de insinuar

No hay nada que decir
La noche habla por fin

Sin dudar
Se entenderá
Lo que tu tratas de disimular

Duerme la ciudad
No hay que esperar
Duerme la ciudad
Nada que explicar
Duerme la ciudad

Translation:

City Sleeps
No need to wait

Sign, sign
Soon you will see
What I try to insinuate

Nothing to say
The night finally speaks

No doubt
The term
What you try to hide

City Sleeps
Do not expect
City Sleeps
Nothing to explain
City Sleeps
Track Name: Montero de Halcones - Recuerdos (Hummingbird)
Las hojas crujen desde ayer
Un funeral en mi interior
Los pájaros quieren volver
Pero no encuentran el calor

Voy buscando lo que no hay
Cosas que quedaron atrás
Voy buscando donde no hay
Más que grises recuerdos

Las hojas crujen desde ayer
Un funeral en el calor
Los pájaros quieren volver
Pero no encuentran mi interior

Voy buscando lo que no hay
Cosas que quedaron atrás
Voy buscando donde no hay
Más que grises recuerdos

Recuerdos (x4)

Voy buscando lo que no hay
Cosas que quedaron atrás
Voy buscando donde no hay
Más que grises recuerdos

Recuerdos (x3)

Translation:

The leaves crunch since yesterday
A funeral inside me
Birds want to return
But there is heat

I'm looking for so no
Things left behind
I'm looking for where there is no
More than gray memories

The leaves crunch since yesterday
A funeral in the heat
Birds want to return
But find my inner

I'm looking for so no
Things left behind
I'm looking for where there is no
More than gray memories

Memories (x4)

I'm looking for so no
Things left behind
I'm looking for where there is no
More than gray memories

Memories (x3)
Track Name: Montero de Halcones - Lo Puedes Dejar Pasar (When In the Heights)
Manchan las alfombras
Llueve ahí afuera

Suenan las sirenas muy lejos

Lo mantengo afuera (x3)
Afuera

Ladran las persianas
Llueve ahí afuera

Ríen las botellas muy cerca

Lo mantengo afuera (x3)
Afuera

Lo puedes dejar pasar

Translation:

Staining the carpets
It's raining out there

Ringing the sirens far away

I keep it outside (x3)
Outside

Barking the blinds
It's raining out there

Laughing the bottles so close

I keep it outside (x3)
Outside

You can let it in
Track Name: Montero de Halcones - La Mitad (Oliver's Castle)
La mitad

En mitad de
Este sueño
Te he llegado a conocer
Te he llegado a entender

En mitad de
Tu silencio
Te he llegado a comprender

La mitad (x4)

Mitad de la mitad
El medio, el centro
La anatomía del conocimiento

Translation:

In the middle
Of this dream
I reach to know you
I reach to understand you

In the middle
Of your silence
I reach to get you

The half (x4)

Half of the middle,
The middle, the center,
The anatomy of the knowledge
