Description
Romantic guitar song IN SPANISH with a crescendo, a clear U2ish sound, but honestly, it wasn't planned and I think it just fitted the song. Sometimes a song ASKS for a concrete sound, and takes you to some places where you didn't want to go at first.

Lyrics
PUEDO ESPERAR

Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar por ti
Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar por ti
Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar por ti
Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar aquí

Estás perdida
Aguja en el pajar
Eres esquiva
Me buscas y te vas
Me aferro a algo
Que no puedo encontrar
Me pierdo en otras
Y en ellas tú no estás
Pero ya sabes que

Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar por ti
Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar por ti
Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar por ti
Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar aquí

Me dicen todos
Que no lo intente más
Que tú no existes
Que no eres de verdad
Pero no puedo
Ni quiero abandonar
Ni resignarme
Ni atarme una vez más
Si no es a la verdad

Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar por ti
Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar por ti
Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar por ti
Puedo esperar
Puedo esperar aquí

Tan sólo espero
Que pienses como yo
Y no te rindas
Ni pienses lo peor
Que no estás sola
Buscando sin razón
Que todo llega
Y ya no hay elección
Te ciega el corazón

Translation (with my poor english):

I CAN WAIT

I can wait
I can wait for you
I can wait
I can wait for you
I can wait
I can wait for you
I can wait
I can wait here

You're lost
Needle in a barn
You're aloof
You look for me and then you go away
I hold on to something
That I can't find
I lose myself in others
And you're not in them
But you know that

I can wait
I can wait for you
I can wait
I can wait for you
I can wait
I can wait for you
I can wait
I can wait here

Everybody tells me
Not to try again
That you don't exist
That you're not real
But I can't
Nor want to leave
Nor to resign
Nor tie myself
If it's not the truth

I can wait
I can wait for you
I can wait
I can wait for you
I can wait
I can wait for you
I can wait
I can wait here

I just hope
You think like me
And you don't give up
And don't expect the worse
You're not alone
Searching without reason
Everything comes
And there's no choice
Your heart blinds you

Some hint?
Of what this is about?

Very cool guitar work. That gives a nice drive to this song.

Maybe you need a plop filter or a low roll-off or something: your microphone picks up too many low frequencies for my taste. Otherwise you have a good voice for this sort of work.

Thanks a lot :)
I usually don't write love songs, or romantic songs... almost all of them are about obsession, revenge, broken relationships and things like this... they are powerful emotions and drive most of my songs, and when I try to write about love I find the songs just too corny, silly or too happy.

So I decided to write an idealistic romantic song about that still unknown person that many people is looking for... a song about the other half, "The One"... hope it doesn't sound too silly... :)

About the mic: it's a Shure SM58, so I suppose I'd better learn how to use it right. Most of the presets I have in EQ and compression for my voice were made for my old no-brand mic, so I'd better work on them... :)

good build
Really like how this built all the way to the end. Yes, definitely U2ish, but hey, we all bring stuff from our unconscious in to play when creating, it's all part of the process.

Nice job on this one. Liked the Spanish, you should give us the translation and perhaps an Anglo version too.

Muy bien
I really enjoyed your song. I especially liked the build up. Almost a U2 feel.
One thing, I think the voice needs a little remixing, the singing is good. It's just the mix is a little off.
Great tune.
