Nelly Furtado- Te Busque Lyrics

A couple of years ago I did the Anggun Lyrics Project (where I wrote out the lyrics for songs from the English version of her album Elevation. I started a similar one with the French songs but didn't get very far! lol. However since I'm better with Spanish than French I decided to have a go at translating some Spanish lrics.

I've started out small with Canadian singer Nelly Furtado's Te Busque featuring Colombian singer Juanes. It appeared on Nelly's album Loose (2006) and was released as a single in 2007 although not in the UK, I don't think. Only the chorus is in Spanish. I found out that there is a full Spanish version though which I'm planning to listen to soon.

I wrote out the lyrics and also used and Google Translate. There are also lyrics in the video below (click on it to view it on YouTube). A couple of lines in the chorus aren't the best translation, so if you're a native or fluent Spanish speaker and have a better translation please let me know. :)

Te Busqué (I Searched For You)

Verse 1

I've been high, I've been low
I've been fast, I've been slow
I've had nowhere to go
Missed the bus, missed the show
I've been down on my luck
I've felt like giving up
My life locked in a trunk
When it hurt way too much
Needed a reason to live
Some love inside me to give
I couldn't rest, I had to keep on searching


Te busqué
I searched for you
Debajo de las piedras y no te encontré
Below the rocks and I didn't find you
En la mañana fría y en la noche
In the cold morning and night
Te busqué, hasta enloquecer
I searched for you until I went mad
Pero tú llegaste a mi vida como una luz
But you came into my life like a light
Sanando las heridas de mi corazón
Healing the wounds of my heart
Y haciéndome sentir vivo otra vez
And making me feel alive again

Verse 2

I've been too sad to speak
And too tired to eat
Been too lonely to sing
Devil cut off my wings
I've been hurt by my past
But I feel the future
In my dreams and at last
I wake-up, I'm not sure
I wanted to find a light
Something just didn't feel right
Needed an answer to end all my searching


Spoken part

I look in the mirror
The picture's getting clearer
I wanna be myself
But does the world really need her?
I ache for the earth
I stopped going to church
See God in the trees
Makes me fall on my knees
My depression keeps building
Like a cup overfilling
My heart's so rigid
I keep it in the frigid
It hurts so bad that I can't dry my eyes
Cos they keep on refilling with the tears that I cry

Chorus x3

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)

The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Dance Moms- Chloe Update

Series/Season 7 of American reality show Dance Moms is currently showing in the UK and I recently heard that one of the original dancers Chloe Lukasiak will be returning for the finale.

Chloe and her mum Christi weren't liked by the dance teacher and studio owner Abby Lee Miller and Christi often clashed with Abby. They left at the end of Series 4. Abby treated Chloe horribly in my opinion, once referring to her as "that girl over there" instead of her name. I always disliked the way Abby punishes the girls if she falls out with their mothers. Also Abby seemed to want to Chloe to fail in competitions, which was weird because she was one of her students representing her!! I think she just wants to be proven right a lot of the time. Chloe was my favourite out of the original girls (Chloe, Maddie, Nia, Mackenzie, Brooke  ans Paige, although Kendall joined quite early on) and I was glad for her when she finally left because she didn't have to put up with being treated li…
