Thanks to life, by Violeta Parra

Thanks to life that has given me so much Gave me two stars and when I open them Perfectly distinguishing between black and white And in the high sky, the starry background And in the crowd, the man I love. Thanks to life that has given me so much Gave me hearing, which in all […]
