Inspired by the CD, 'Volare! The Very Best of the Gipsy Kings'...

Let me dwell in the air you breathe!

The impassioned strains of your music
colors my blood crimson

I am alive! I dance in sacred mosques

Whirling dirvish in blue and gold
against the sun

A beggar waiting for my conqueror

A Spanish slave to my Moorish king

The sun has no brilliance kin to yours

I am in trance, even your shadow lays bright across my form

My face glows golden in the mirrored light

Transfixed, as if in sight of ancient spirits

I sing my pulse into your sentient soul

Un amor, Un amor, Un amor will forever possess my heart...
