‘I Still Dream Big…’ by Yuri Loza, English by Vesper Lynd

“… There are so many things I’m too old for –

I am a grown man, I acquired some scars

I probably won’t ever travel

To gorgeous amazing new stars

It’s too much, it’s too late, ‘complicated’

And the “highs” I don’t feel any more

I receive birthday wishes belated

But I dream just as big as before…

That while sailing adrift

I’ll acquire a gift

Stumble over a fortune right at my feet…

… Of a Different World

Of a love to behold

Of the open doors where someone’s waiting and loves and believes in me!

I can’t recall all the strangers

That I had befriended along

Countless sleepless nights wasted

At times when I felt so alone

Some folks seem to me straight up boring

To them l look tired it seems…

With so many words outpouring

I’d rather stay home and daydream…

That by staying adrift

I’ ll acquire a gift

Stumble over a fortune right at my feet

In a different world

With a love to behold

At the open doors where someone’s waiting and loves and believes in me!

If best times of my life I’d repeated

It still wouldn’t be quite all that…

Officially, I am ‘over ……50’ (30, 40, 60…)

But I am not giving up dreaming yet…

That by sailing adrift

I’ll acquire a gift

Stumble over a fortune right at my feet…

… Of a different world

Of a love to behold

Of the open doors where someone’s waiting and loves and believes in me!….”

Yuri Loza.  English lyrics version by Vesper Lynd.
