El universo sobre mi Amaral Translation Meaning and Lyrics

Review

There is a bit of a story here: there has been a party, and the guest are leaving.  There is a cake with a single candle.

Amaral seems to be happy in some lines, yet frustrated with her partner in others. 

She's had a nice day, yet says she's having trouble smiling, then launches off into a stream of consciousness about wanting to be free etc. 

She calms down at the end and remember stuff from her youth, yet still want to know if her partner wants to eat the last bit of cake?  Maybe has some figurative meaning?

It is a little bit sad, but has a thumping chorus where you feel she will get what she wants in her universe, if not today, at some point.

The slower parts of the song the vocalist is seen in a dull room with one of the guitar players.  He's generally looking like he's depressed, or very pensive anyway.

She's made up with a lot of black eyeliner which is her trademark look.   Why anyone over the age of 25 needs to show their belly-button I don't know.

You see the band playing live in the chorus sections and she gets animated about what she wants to do.

Sadly no real connection with the lyrics for language learners in the YouTube ide - but a nice visually interesting video.   This was the song that made me realise I needed to code the 'cloud lingo script' video system.

Only one candle left



Lit in the middle of the cake



And you want to consume



The guests are leaving



You and I looked at each other.



Not knowing what to say



Nothing to reveal what I feel



That this day was perfect



And I look so happy



Nothing like a long time ago



That I have a hard time smiling



I want to live



I want to scream



I want to feel



The universe above me



I want to run free



I want to find my site



A joke of fate



An accelerated melody



In a song that never ends



I've had enough.



I need someone who understands



That I'm alone in the middle of a lot of people



What can I do?



I want to live



I want to scream



I want to feel



The universe above me



I want to run free



I want to cry with happiness



I want to live



I want to feel



The universe above me



Like a castaway at sea



I want to find my site



Just find my site



All broken toys



All crazy lovers all



Patent leather shoes



All dollhouses



Where he celebrated parties



Where only I was



The forgotten spirit returns



Of the summer of love



I want to live



I want to scream



I want to feel



The universe above me



I want to run free



I want to cry with happiness



I want to live



I want to feel



The universe above me



Like a castaway at sea



I want to find my site



Just find my site



I want to live



I want to scream



I want to feel



The universe above me



I want to run free



I want to cry with happiness



I want to live



I want to feel



The universe above me



Like a castaway at sea



I want to find my site



Only one candle left



Lit in the middle of the cake



And you want to consume
