"Spain, my darling, this thing of us is not working"

  • 0:08 - 0:10
    So many summers, winters, autumns
  • 0:10 - 0:11
    Tolerating each other
  • 0:11 - 0:15
    Embittering our lives and chastising each other
  • 0:15 - 0:17
    You looking back and me swallowing my pride
  • 0:17 - 0:20
    Hoping that things will improve some day
  • 0:20 - 0:21
    Enough!
  • 0:21 - 0:24
    Too many years, I already know
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    That you won't be changing your hard stance
  • 0:27 - 0:28
    But I feel the day is coming
  • 0:28 - 0:30
    When I have all the energy
  • 0:30 - 0:33
    To tell you that I can't stand it anymore
  • 0:33 - 0:34
    Because...
  • 0:34 - 0:37
    So many years being what I didn't want to be
  • 0:37 - 0:38
    Just let me be true
  • 0:38 - 0:42
    Every night I go to bed
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    Having wasted yet another day
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    Because Spain, my darling
  • 0:47 - 0:51
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 0:51 - 0:54
    Oh Spain, my darling
  • 0:54 - 0:58
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 0:58 - 1:00
    We have spent sweet winters
  • 1:00 - 1:02
    And noisy summers
  • 1:02 - 1:03
    So many things I could think of
  • 1:03 - 1:06
    Dinners at night
  • 1:06 - 1:08
    And tapas under the sun
  • 1:08 - 1:11
    And the music you made me listen
  • 1:11 - 1:12
    We've had shitty moments
  • 1:12 - 1:14
    So many efforts to understand each other
  • 1:14 - 1:17
    It's been so long that I can't even remember
  • 1:17 - 1:18
    How we meet each other
  • 1:18 - 1:20
    When did you appear
  • 1:20 - 1:24
    And I can't be bothered to be explained once again
  • 1:24 - 1:27
    So many years being what I didn't want to be
  • 1:27 - 1:29
    Just let me be true
  • 1:29 - 1:32
    Every night I go to bed
  • 1:32 - 1:36
    Having wasted another day
  • 1:36 - 1:38
    Because Spain, my darling
  • 1:38 - 1:40
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 1:40 - 1:41
    I'm in a hurry, so...
  • 1:41 - 1:44
    Oh Spain, my darling
  • 1:44 - 1:46
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 1:46 - 1:48
    I hope you don't mind that I get going
  • 1:48 - 1:50
    Oh Spain, my darling
  • 1:50 - 1:52
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 1:52 - 1:55
    We'll not going to solve it by simply talking
  • 1:55 - 1:57
    Oh Spain, my darling
  • 1:57 - 1:59
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 1:59 - 2:00
    What do you think, Mali?
  • 2:00 - 2:01
    Well, Spain's not going well
  • 2:01 - 2:03
    Spain is not in our interest, I mean
  • 2:03 - 2:05
    No, no, that's right
  • 2:05 - 2:06
    We have a fiscal deficit
  • 2:06 - 2:08
    ...a cultural deficit
  • 2:08 - 2:09
    ...we have a job deficit
  • 2:09 - 2:11
    ...and a grammar deficit
  • 2:11 - 2:12
    ...we have a conceptual deficit
  • 2:12 - 2:14
    ...and a mental deficit
  • 2:14 - 2:15
    We have an identity deficit
  • 2:15 - 2:17
    Hey, that one does not rhyme!
  • 2:17 - 2:17
    You're right, but it is true
  • 2:17 - 2:19
    So many summers, winters and autumns
  • 2:19 - 2:20
    That we've left behind
  • 2:20 - 2:23
    Catalans, the time of our Spring has come
  • 2:23 - 2:25
    Please don't bother to call me
  • 2:25 - 2:26
    Please don't come after me
  • 2:26 - 2:28
    What a pain in the ass
  • 2:28 - 2:30
    Please take it easy
  • 2:30 - 2:31
    We can go out for a drink
  • 2:31 - 2:33
    We can go shopping together
  • 2:33 - 2:34
    Or we can start a business
  • 2:34 - 2:36
    If you want, you can be my business partner
  • 2:36 - 2:38
    I'm leaving with many things from you
  • 2:38 - 2:39
    The clams from the grocer,
  • 2:39 - 2:41
    The bathing robe, the chess game
  • 2:41 - 2:42
    The dishware and a portrait
  • 2:42 - 2:44
    Spain, my darling
  • 2:44 - 2:46
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 2:46 - 2:47
    I'm in a hurry, so
  • 2:47 - 2:51
    Spain, my darling
  • 2:51 - 2:53
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 2:53 - 2:55
    I hope you don't mind that I get going
  • 2:55 - 2:57
    Spain, my darling
  • 2:57 - 2:59
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 2:59 - 3:01
    We're not going to solve it by simply talking
  • 3:01 - 3:03
    Oh Spain, my darling
  • 3:03 - 3:08
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 3:08 - 3:13
    I've had enough Cups, Leagues and 'la Roja'
  • 3:13 - 3:17
    Let's have the guts
  • 3:17 - 3:21
    And cut the crap
  • 3:21 - 3:24
    We've had shitty moments
  • 3:24 - 3:27
    So many efforts to understand each other
  • 3:27 - 3:30
    A country that wakes up early
  • 3:30 - 3:33
    Won't ever be stopped
  • 3:33 - 3:36
    Ah Spain, my darling
  • 3:36 - 3:39
    Ah Spain, my darling
  • 3:39 - 3:42
    Ah Spain, my darling
  • 3:42 - 3:44
    Ah, Spain, my darling
  • 3:44 - 3:46
    This thing of ours is not working
  • 3:46 - 3:49
    Spain, my darling
  • 3:49 - 3:52
    Ah Spain, my darling
  • 3:52 - 3:54
    Ah Spain, my darling
  • 3:54 - 3:58
    This thing of ours is not working
