Gaby Moreno - Ave que Emigra

All of Gaby Moreno's songs are beautiful and special. But this became one of my most favorite songs by Gaby Moreno after I heard her explain to the non Spanish speaking people in her audience one night at Cafe Largo, what the song meant to her. The Spanish title, Ave que Emigra, means Bird That Migrates in English

Gaby is from Guatemala and migrated to America to continue to pursue her craft as a singer, songwriter and recording artist. The song sung in Spanish, and text in English just below, is especially beautiful when considering the story of her own life and that of others who have the dream. Enjoy! GC


I come from very far away
looking for the blue of the sky
following predicaments I come from very far away

Memories from my childhood that sometimes
leave the soul My Guatemala never forgot.
carried always with me

Tired from running
in times of hunting lifted high
in my flight like a bird that migrates

I come from very far away
looking for the blue of the sky
following predicaments I come from very far away

And how one is clinging to
a piece of land sooner or
later comes the air Burns without truce

Tired from running in
times of hunting lifted high
in my flight like a bird that migrates
