No estarás sola,
vendrán a buscarte batallones de soldados
que a tu guerrilla de paz se han enrolado.
Y yo en primera fila de combate
abriendo trincheras
para protegernos, mi guerrillera.
No estarás sola,
te saludarán a tu paso en mil idiomas, con mil lenguajes,
la gente a la que despertaste en cada viaje,
los que dormían en las calles,
a los que preguntaste,
por su esperanza, por su desastre.
No habrá distancias
que no cubra cualquier hombre que te busque.
No habrá rincón en que tu nombre no se pronuncie.
No habrá misterio o duda en que tu presencia no luzca,
faro solidario en ausencia de paz,
en tiempos difíciles Estrella Polar.
Sola nunca, nunca estarás.
No estarás sola,
siempre habrá quien se parta en dos en cada despedida,
quien te de aliento cuando te des por vencida.
Tu revolución llenará sonrisas,
yo la incorporé a mis aperos
de trabajo, a mi vida.
Clava hoy tus raíces en mí.
Quién pudiera retenerte en Madrid.
Visitaremos lugares a los que hemos
ido antes juntos,
antes de conocerte,
antes de encontrarte.
No estarás sola,
siempre habrá quien te ayude a hacer las mudanzas,
quien te regale manos flores presencias sin pedir nada.
Y allí estaré para amarte,
y aunque no esté,
allí estaré para amarte.
No estarás sola.
No, no estarás sola.
No estarás sola.

You got a fast car
And I want a ticket to go anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere
Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove
You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
We won't have to drive too far
Just 'cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living
You see my old man's got a problem
He live with the bottle that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working
I say his body's too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody's got to take care of him
So I quit school and that's what I did
You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way
I remember we were driving driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone
You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs
You got a fast car
And I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving
You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way
