You’re the city of my dreams
You’re the mystery of my life
Soaked in endless grief
Your southern light shines bright

And I will never rest to see
your wild and precious face
I will kiss the wounded stones and shields
to melt into your arms of grace

I picture you before me
The mother of all souls

You may cry Argentina
And let your feelings flow
You won’t die Argentina
Cause there’s the city of hope

Like the tango has shown you
There’s more than love and hate
It’s the passion in your streets
Lovers dance till it gets late

The future is brittle, the tides are at war
Politicians rule from a candy store
But the people stand upright.
People keep their pride

They miss those from long ago
Roaming in circles, the world needs to know
There’s music in their hearts
Purity in their hearts

I picture you before me
The mother of all souls

You may cry Argentina
And let your feelings flow
You won’t die Argentina
Cause there’s the city of hope

You may cry, you may bawl,
you may laugh through your tears
you may burst, you may fall,
you’ve survived so many years
You won’t run, you won’t hide,
you won’t give up your dreams
You will rise, rise again
and show your love to me

You may cry Argentina
Just let your feelings flow
You won’t die Argentina
Cause there’s the city of hope

You are so beautiful
Mi sol, mi vida, mi libertad
