about

hen I met Kico Gonzalez-Risso , we hit it off immediately. While pouring over his beautiful poems in search of one to set to music, Llega La Hora was the one that had an immediate effect on me.

There are many explanations as to its inspiration and what the piece is actually about and I’d like to take the opportunity to make it clear: this work is about loss. To anyone who has ever experienced this feeling, I hope you find as much solace and comfort in listening to it as I did writing it.

lyrics

Llega la hora del olvido
los recuerdos se oscurecen
los arboles vuelven a la tierra
los mares a los cielos
el tiempo va retrocediendo
y tú te olvidas de mi

Llega la hora del eclipse
las luces ya desaparacen
los astros vuelven al pasado
los fuegos al espacio
el tiempo va retrocediendo
y tú te olvidas de mi

Llega la hora de la sombra
las estrellas cambian de color
los amores vuelven al pasado
mientras te sigo mirando
el tiempo va retrocediendo
y se que no vas a volver

-Kico Gonzalez-Risso

translation

The hour of forgetting arrives
memories darken
trees return to the earth
the sea to the skies
time is receding
and you forget me

The hour of the eclipse arrives
the lights already disappear
the planets return to the infinite
the fires to space
time is receding
and you forget me

The hour of the shadow arrives
stars change their colour
lovers return to the past
as I keep watching you
time is receding
and I know that you will not return
