SONG FACTS

Written by Kirsty & Dave Ruffy.

* Thanks to noodle -

"though this is probably known to everyone, the word itself means 'happiness' or 'joy'

... the line, "El alma es suyo."  A little difficult in context to translate precisely.  It could mean:"The soul is yours" but Kirsty would have used 'tuyo' IMHO

or, it could mean "My (or 'The') soul belongs to it" ... which in Spanish makes a lot more sense if she is talking about the water, or the sea?  So more smoothly, if generously translated to "My soul belongs to the water," but would be taking a risk with that one."

Alegría

I close my eyes, another dream arrives
Deeper and deeper into the sweet water
Filling my senses with happiness and joy

El Alma es Suyo*

Happiness and joy

Alegría

Happiness and joy
