Al Alba


Si te dijera, amor mío, que temo a la madrugada,
no sé qué estrellas son éstas que hieren como amenazas
ni sé qué sangra la luna al filo de su guadaña.
Presiento que tras la noche vendrá la noche más larga,
quiero que no me abandones, amor mío, al alba, al alba, al alba.

Al Alba (At Dawn), lyrics based on a poem by Miguel Hernandez - a Spanish poet who represented the poor and oppressed of General Franco’s era, arrested for his writing and ideas. In 1941 he died of tuberculosis in a Spanish prison at the age of 31.
