LLEGA LA HORA

Translated as the “Hour of Forgetting”, the profound lyrics by Kico Gonzales-Risso (in Spanish) depict a world of darkness and forgetting – Alzheimer’s. This mood is masterfully captured by K. Fulton in a slow, but dramatic and often dissonant work. He creates strong feelings of tension, that dissipate finally with the words “time is receding”.

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 amore 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 retrociendo
y se que no vas a volver

poem by 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
