Lyr Req: spanish song: he is the sky & she is sea

29 Jun 04 - 10:25 AM (#1216228)
Subject: Lyr Req: Seeking a spanish song for a friend
From: GUEST,hobbles2002@hotmail.com

I am looking for a spanish song that includes spanish lyrics that go something like "he is the sky and she is the sea." It goes on to talk about no matter how much they want to love each other and be together, it can never be. Because he is the sky and she is the sea and something about they could never meet.

I apologize for not knowing more. A dying friend told me about this song that she wants to find. It was sung for her by a spanish acquaintance who has since moved. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Time is of the essence so if you know what I am talking about please email me right away. She only has 3-6 months left. Please put "song requested" in the subject line because otherwise it might not get opened. Thank you for your time.

Guest Hobbles, might you be looking for this: a song that has a very simple melody line (the sort that makes a good round) and the words are (I do not speak Spanish)
--mos el barco,
-- -- -- --
four short lines, each rising up a four note bit of scale,The melody has the short four lines above, then switches to the higher key related tune (rather the way reels do) for another four, each going down in pitch.

and translates (the chorus anyway)
"You are the boat, I am the sea,
I live in you, you live in me"
I do not know the song myself (obviously) but know someone who sings it and could give him a call. (He is not a regular here.)

"Somos el barco" is not in the DT but is mentioned in several threads, including the full Spanish words. Try a forum search for "somos el barco" in the box high in the left on the forum page; it came up immediately several times, though I regret to say I cannot do a blicky from the work computer. If you need music, I will ask him for a tape.

Apparently Peter, Paul and Mary have it on their website too according to an earlier 2001 thread. Have not found music yet, if this is in fact the one, but it is evidently fairly widely known and recorded.

Pete Seegar also sang this. Can't find any trad. Spanish song with this name. It was put together as a song of unity; there are words in other languages.

But "Somos el barco" is pretty clearly not the song that is being sought. I have a very vague memory of that song, so vague that there's not enough to trace, sorry. If anything pops into my head I'll follow it up.

Aloha,
Mark

Babel Fish tells me that "he is the sky and she is the sea" translates to "él es el cielo y ella es el mar." However, searching for these words with Google didn't find any lyrics. Maybe somebody who really knows Spanish could do better.

This site has almost too many songs to search. I got tired looking and it's my bedtime.
Here is the link to Spanish songs:
Index Spanish

Suggestion: Also look for Ya (I), etc.

I sent "Somos El Barco" to the requester by e-mail - but I'm not convinced that's the song he/she's seeking.

I'm a native Spanish speaker, but I don't remember any song like that. Perhaps if someone can tell me some verses of the original Spanish lyrics, some bell could ring in my RAM. Usually translations are not literal, so that "he is the sky .." tells me nothing.

Un abrazo,

Maybe Andres could translate this song, Magica La Notte, and tell us if it might be the right one. I did a Google search on "soy el cielo, tu eres el mar", which I think means "I am the sky, you are the sea."

Aloha,
Mark

That sure sounds like a likely possibility, Mark. I'll paste the lyrics here. The chorus starts, "You are the sea, and I am the moon, and I live up here in the sky...."

It looks a little incoherent, as if it was a bad translation to Spanish from something else. And "la notte" is Italian, not Spanish.
EL SUEÑO....LA NOCHE....LA MUSICA...LA MUSICA
The dream.. the night..the music..the music
LA MUSICA...EL SUEÑO...LA LUNA...EL MAR.
The music.. the dream.. the Moon.. the Sea
MI ALMA SIENTE EL RITMO SUBIR
My soul feels the rythm raising
ES MAGIA Y ESTA SERA
It's magic and this will be
UNA NOCHE DE MUSICA Y FIESTA
A night of music and feast
Y NADA MAS
and nothing else
TODA LA GENTE QUE BAILA Y QUE SE LIBRA EL CORAZON
All the people who dance and frees their hearts
YA VA A SALIR.. PARA VIVIR... NUEVA PASION.
is going out ..to live.. new passion
TU ERES EL MAR... PERO YO SOY LA LUNA...
You are the Sea.. but I am the Moon
Y VIVO AQUI EN EL CIELO
and I live here in the sky
ESPERO POR TU TERNURA
I wait for your tenderness
TU... ERES EL MAR... PERO YO SOY LA LUNA...
You are the Sea.. but I am the Moon
Y VIVO AQUI EN EL CIELO
and I live here in the sky
Y ESPERO... PUES QUIERO
and wait.. because I want..

I don't see much resemblance to the song requested, but if you want the full translation please tell me. Please Hobbles2002, could you tell us whether the song comes from Mexico, or Spain, or Central or South America? This could help.

Un abrazo,
Andrés

"Magica la Notte" by Francesca St. Martin in Italian is different from the song in Spanish posted by Joe.
Possibly a different set of lyrics was set in Spanish because of the impossibility of literal translations that rhyme and fit the music.

MAGICA LA NOTTE
Francesca St. Martin
(based on a traditional song)

Il sonne, la notte, la musica
la musica, la musica, il sonno,
la luna, il mare
la mia anima sente che
il ritmo viene fuori, è magia
e questa sera c'è una notte di musica
e festa e niente più,
tutte le persone che ballano e che
liberano i propri cuori escono fuori
per vivere una nuova passione.
tu sei il mare però io sono la luna
e vivo qui nei cielo,
aspetto la tua tenerezza, tu sei il mare
però io sono la luna e vivo qui nel cielo e aspetto...
inoltre amo...
è magica la notte perchè ti posso amare,
sei tutto ciò che ho,
sta venendo fuori. sta venendo fuori
che è magica la notte
perchè ti posso amare, sei tutto ciò che ho,
la luna ama il mare. la mia anima ti cerca
e sa glè che non amerè mai più
se la tua bocca non bacia la mia...
una volta ancora continuo ad aspettarti...
sola e il fuoco della mia passione
continua ad amare sognando
e non si può fermare
tu sei il mare però io sono la luna
e vivo qui nei cielo,
aspetto la tua tenerezza,
tu sei il mare però io sono la luna
e vivo qui nei cielo e aspetto...
in più amo ...questo.

Magica La Notte

Line settings probably wrong.

Magica La Notte may not be traditional. I mis-translated tradotto, which seems to mean translated. The website has songs translated from several languages, but this one is in the original language.

The alphabetic index is based on the first name of the artist. I noted that they have, under Led Zeppelin, Stairway to Heaven, which translates to "Scala Per Il Paradiso" for the Italian lyrics given. Quite a variety here.

Seems like we're all striking out. Guess we need more info from Hobbles, or more inspired guesswork.
