Lyrics

DAR y RECIBIR

Written By: Quique Neira

La vida es para dar y recibir todo lo que hay en mí es para ti
La vida es dar y recibir y eres principio y fin de mi existencia
La vida es para dar y recibir
La vida es dar y recibir

Yo quiero darte lo que esperas tú de mí
Y recibir lo que espero yo de ti
Que no es nada más que bendición y cariño

Son tus palabras la poesía
Alimento en mi camino día a día
Son pequeños los detalles
Que hacen incomparables tus verdades

Que brillaran y brillaran y brillaran
Como el sol en un amanecer
Y guían y guían y guían
En mi camino hacia un nuevo ser

La vida es para dar y recibir todo lo que hay en mi es para ti
La vida es dar y recibir y eres principio y fin de mi existencia
La vida es para dar y recibir
La vida es dar y recibir

Gratitud y devoción
Refleja esta canción
Certeza es y no un quizás
No es lo que ves
Es mucho más
Es lo que lleva toda alma
Y en silencio

Brilla brilla brilla
Desnudando las desigualdades
Que día a día a día
Han de desaparecer completamente

La vida es para dar y recibir todo lo que hay en mí es para ti
La vida es dar y recibir y eres principio y fin de mi existencia
La vida es para dar y recibir
La vida es dar y recibir (2x)

Brilla brilla brilla
Como el sol en un nuevo amanecer
Y guía guía guía
En mi camino hacia un nuevo ser

La vida es para dar y recibir todo lo que hay en mí es para ti
La vida es dar y recibir y eres principio y fin de mi existencia
La vida es para dar y recibir
La vida es dar y recibir (2x)
