R.I.P. Pau Donés

Hey guys.
I just found out that one of my favorite musicians when I was a teenager has recently died, Pau Donés, the one of “La Flaca”. Cancer finished him this June.
This was his last videoclip and it was obvious to me that his life “hung on a thread” as we say here. It has a great message that make me think about you guys. Now I find a little ironic that his band was called “Jarabe de Palo” a Spanish old saying which literally means “Stick Syrup” and it refers to “corporal punishment”. Big hug and enjoy life.

I’ve translated the lyrics for the ones who don’t know Spanish 😉 :

That which you give me
is much more than I ask
everything you give me
is what I need now.

That which you give me
I don’t think I deserve it
for everything you give
I will always be grateful to you.

So thank you for being
for your friendship and company
you are the, the best thing that life has given me.

For all I received
being here is worth it
thanks to you i followed
rowing against the tide.

With all I received
now I know I’m not alone
now I have you
my friend my treasure.

So thank you for being
for your friendship and company
you are the, the best thing that life has given me.

I’m going to give you everything
for your quality and your joy
you helped me to get back on my feet
to improve myself day by day.

I’ll give you everything
you were my best medicine
I’ll give you everything
whatever you ask for.

And that you give me
is much more
is much more
than I have ever asked for.

Everything you give me
is much more
is much more
than I have ever deserved.

That which you give me…
That which you give me…
