“Aquellas pequeñas cosas” / “Those little things”, by Joan Manuel Serrat

Standard

Enjoy the song, following the lyrics in Spanish in the video. Below, find the translation into English.

“Those little things”

One may think/ that time and absence killed them./ But, their train/ sold a round-way ticket./
They are those little things/ that left us a time of roses/ in a corner,/ in a piece of paper/ or in a drawer.
Like a thief,/ they lie in wait for us/ behind the door./ They’ve got you so much/ at their mercy/ like dead leaves/ that the wind drags/ over there and here,/ that they smile at you sadly and/ make us cry when nobody sees us.
