about

Quiero Amarte was the beginning of us. Literally. SoliRose was born out of this. I want to love you but I lost you. We started with a longing that sat in the gut. Centuries old, but silent within each of us until it was ready. From across the Atlantic it called us to it, to each other. A dream. They say spirits live in walls. We lived in walls--one orange one blue. She was a spider, I a snake. The melody beat through our bodies in the walls. We were the melody. The next morning the ocean swallowed me as I sang it back and a voice buzzed in my ear, a shell with no shell. Across the ocean Samia had dreamed the bass to the melody, that which would cradle it so it could soar. The ocean, Yemonja. No cell phones, no Skype or Google Video. The ocean, She, carried the song. The song was longing. The longing reached across. This same longing is what would fuel the return to the elements. Earth. Ocean. Wind. Fire. There would be no return without desire. The desire to live in sacred relationship. Again. A gain. There would be no gain without the acknowledgement of loss. In this song we mourn for the end of things to open space for the new beginning.

lyrics

quiero amarte i want to love you
quiero amarte i want to love you
quiero amarte i want to love you

pero te perdí but i lost you
te perdí i lost you
te perdí i lost you

quiero amarte i want to love you
quiero amarte i want to love you
quiero amarte i want to love you

pero te perdí but i lost you
te perdí i lost you
te perdí i lost you

la tierra the land
el mar the ocean
el aire the air
y el fuego and the fire

quiero i want
amarte to love you
