L'abandon :- Abandonment

In autumn the sun is indulgent
The skin gives itself to the mild winds
Over there the tempo seems to
beat to the lazy rhythm of life
The abandonment, everything can be learnt

Caresses from the warm waves
The soft sands, beautiful and tender lover
Over there, neverending dances
Mixes people, and love loves life
The abandonment is known, here nature initiates

They already know those moments
The sun had prepared it all
Here the isles initiate the little ones
To abandonment
[Chorus]
The already know those rhythms
The fires down there, this lascivious state
The warmth and the wind
Oh softly, my island teaches me

The rhum makes the men more tender
Makes the women and the girls burst into laughter
The nights are velvet here
Same in Panama, even in Cuba
Love is hungry for you
And vice-versa

Fights hand-to-hand, loving soldiers
Those combats are pleasurable
Everything here: The water, the climate
Everything is desire, you can't escape it
The abandonment, you can learn everything
In nursery rhymes and dances
[Chorus x 2]

A step from you, a step from me
Hips stick together and softly move together
You can learn everything, the abandnment
I go where you go, and even beyond
All against you, lawless night
The instant lifts us up and that's it
The moment, this moment
Nothing is more important than this

They already know those moments
The sun had prepared it all
The warmth and the wind
Oh softly, my island teaches me
