I who have Nothing Must believe in spring Again. I used to visit All the very gay places, And joy and happiness Were among my habits. Now I have lost All my folks, My line is cut. All I keep Is all my hopes For the wheel of life. I was a young girl, I was your sister, Young lady, And dignity and respect Were among our habits. I used to visit them all, My fellows on the hill. Such beauty on our faces, And now the wheel of life. Here I am, Landed far away, I who have Nothing.

There was a child, looking for his grandmother’s house. He never had a chance to look into her eyes And see what was deeply inside her soul. He knew she had something special, And went to see her house. He crossed the borders of the South, Dreamed of those windows, From where she could see the streets, Full of people living there From the beginning of time. That street surprisingly full of sounds: Children, pedlars, horses, stagecoaches, That street full of life. He had dreamed of those sounds, And could clearly imagine those Who were living there From the beginning of time.
