Ella soñaba que un día
Alguien llegara a su vida
Todo lo que ella quería
Era su propia familia

Su madre le decía
Todos los consejos que necesitaría
Para encontrar el amor verdadero
Que un día llegaría

Ella era cocinera
Y trabajaba duro cada día
Para que su madre linda
Orgullosa de ella estaría

Triste ella estaba
Porque no tenía padre
Él que abandonó a su madre
Cuando en el vientre ella crecía

Su padre fue un cobarde
Pero su madre le decía
No odies a tu padre
Que en tus venas corre su sangre

Pasaron los años
Como sueños volando
Todo lo que ella hizo
Fueron esfuerzos en vano

Su madre vieja se sentía
Canas y arrugas tenía
Enfermedades llegaron
Su corazón lento latía

Siempre juntas todos los días
Sin una la otra no dormía
Agárrame la mano mija
Que se me va la vida

En un ataúd su madre bajo tierra
Ya no tenía nadie ni motivo
Una foto de su madre su mano sostenía
Agarró la escopeta y jaló el gatillo

 

A Lonely Life

She always dreamed that one day
Someone would come along
All she wanted was her own family
A place where she belonged

Her mother always gave her
The very best advice
On how to find the true love
That would come into her life

She worked as a cook
And every day she vowed
To do all that she could
To make her lovely mother proud

Sadness was in her heart
Because she never had a father
Before she was even born
He abandoned her mother

Her father was a coward
But her mother used to say
You mustn’t hate your father
His blood runs in your veins

And so the years passed by
Like a dream flying
All her hard work was in vain
But still she kept on trying

Her mother became gray and wrinkled
She began to feel old
She suffered the illnesses of age
Her heart was beating slow

Together each and every day
Without one, the other couldn’t sleep
Hold my hand, sweet daughter
My life is slipping from me

Her mother rested below the earth
She had nothing and no one
Holding a photo of her mom
She pulled the trigger of the gun
