Julieta Venegas - Lento

Si quieres un poco de mí
Se vuoi un po’ di me
if you want a little bit of me

Me deberías esperar
Dovresti aspettarmi
You should wait for me

Y caminar a paso lento, muy lento
E camminare a passo lento, molto lento
And walk slowly, very slowly

Y poco a poco olvidar
E a poco a poco dimenticare
And bit by bit forget

El tiempo y su velocidad
Il tempo e la sua velocità
Time and its speed

Frenar el ritmo, ir muy lento, más lento
Frenare il ritmo, andare molto lento, più lento
Stop the rhythm, go very slowly, much slower

Sé delicado y espera
Sii delicato e aspetta
Be delicate and wait

Dame tiempo para darte
Dammi tempo per darti
Give me some time to give you

Todo lo que tengo
Tutto ciò che ho
All I have

Si quieres un poco de mí
Se vuoi un po’ di me
if you want a little bit of me

Dame paciencia y verás
Dammi pazienza e vedrai
Give patience and you’ll see

Será mejor que andar corriendo
Sarà meglio che correre
It’ll be better than running

Levantar vuelo
Prendere il volo
Taking off

Y poco a poco olvidar
E a poco a poco dimenticare
And bit by bit forget

El tiempo y su velocidad
Il tempo e la sua velocità
Time and its speed

Frenar el ritmo, ir muy lento, cada vez más lento
Frenare il ritmo, andare molto lento, ogni volta più lento
Stop the rhythm, go very slowly, each time slower

Si me hablas de amor
Se mi parli d’amore
if you talk to me about love

Si suavizas mi vida
Se mi ammorbidisci la vita
If you soften my life

No estaré más tiempo
No starò altro tempo
I won’t spend more time

Sin saber que siento
Senza sapere cosa sento
Without knowing what I feel

While the boy lurves hummus and kinda sorta likes falafel, he’s not a fan of the local Middle Eastern joint that busy daddy and I happen to like. After yoga, we tricked invited the boy to try a new yum restaurant called Falafel Phil’s. The boy was all, “OMG, there’s a real Falafel Phil’s!?!” And we were all, Totes!!!

We ordered hummus and falafel for the boy as well as some other yum eats like fuul medames, beef and lamb shawerma, and kafta tagine for busy daddy and me. Our dinner was deloycious, but as the boy was tucking into his falafel and hummus, he finally spied the menu and he said to us, “Hey, this restaurant isn’t called Falafel Phil’s!!! Hachmakitan isn’t even a real country!!! Where’s the gang from Kickin’ It!?!” And busy daddy was all, “My bad, sad face.” And I was all, Whomp whomp. And the boy was all, “I’ve lost my appetite.”

Still, our dinner was yum!
