Cambio de Piel

Cambio de Piel

It was our second night in Trinidad, we were quiet and taking in the whole vibe of the town as we slowly made our way to Casa de la Musica. We found a table right in the middle of the action and I ordered some food and mojitos. I remember the lead singer of the band as we saw him in a random bar we stumbled into the following day. The passion in his voice as he belted out this song stirred something in me but I didn't get up to dance. I sat quietly and committed the entire moment to memory, praying to never forget how it all felt. I had no phones, no cameras, just my memory.  It wasn't until months later that I found out the song is Cambio del Piel by Marc Anthony who I absolutely adore. This song (and the video) takes me back to that night in Trinidad, to eventually dancing without a care in the world, and the days that followed.

You came to me like a sun, clearing the grey sky

And your light illuminated where no one could enter

Where there was darkness, now are you

All is perfect really, nothing I have to invent

You're my life,you're more than I ever dreamed

I need your faith to understand

How can I change my skin, and be born again

How can I explain to the heart

That there's no danger in believing in this love.

How can it be broken, the eternal fear to fall

How can I teach the mind

That to make mistakes is part of being human, and it's necessary the pain

Come and help me to learn how I skin change

Forgive me if I don't know, how to walk without tripping over

It's hard to avoid the fears of yesterday

I need your faith to understand

How can I change my skin, and be born again

How can I explain to the heart

That there's no danger in believing in this love.

How can I tell her, how can I make her understand

How can I change, How can I change my skin

Tell me how I change, cause I don't know

Set me free from the fears of yesterday

Help me, help me

Ay love of mine, come to help me

I need you, come, help me

 

I cannot imagine life without music.

What songs remind you of certain places you've been to or times in your life?
