I’m not from here, I’m not from there
where am I going should I care
when will I get there can’t really say
I’m in the moment and I’m on my way, I’m on my way
From D.F. and Guanajuato
East Los Angeles and Hermosillo
going to Chiapas, Magdalena
I’m in the moment and I’m on my way, I’m on my way
Hay muchas tierras
que nunca he visto
son mil canciones
que no he cantado
Todas las rutas
desierto azul
me lleva a ti
o a la nada
Starting in Sonora, down to Oaxaca
trouble in Tijuana and San Diego
Mexicali and San Fransisco
Juarez, El Paso I’m on my way, I’m on my way
Yo quiero llegar
a esa tierra linda
que esta mas alla
donde hay una sonrisa
a bailar la cumbia “Candela, candela”
a bailar la cumbia “Que quema, que quema”
