MIL COLORES

Mil Colores (A Thousand Colors) is a musical journey that allows children and families to explore songs about empowerment and discovery through heartfelt melodies and lyrics. The album offers a collection of original songs rich in diversity, featuring a variety of Latin American rhythms, traditional rock instrumentation, jazz arrangements and more. The inspirational album promotes self-awareness all while encouraging children to be curious about the world around them, to be proud of who they are and to seize the day! The songs are primarily written in Spanish but include English versions and tracks written in both languages.

ARCOÍRIS EN MI CORAZÓN

Arcoíris en mi Corazón, which translates to “Rainbow in my Heart”, is a song about colors and the emotions that we sometimes like to assign to those colors. The lyrics promote the normalization of different feelings while simultaneously reinforcing the names of colors for non-Spanish speakers. 

LYRICS - SPANISH

 

Tengo un arcoíris en mi corazón

Tengo mil emociones, todas de un color

Tengo un arcoíris en mi corazón

Tengo mil emociones, todas de un color

 

Azul, cuando me siento triste, azul

O cuando estoy calmado azul, azul

Amarillo, cuando me sonrío como brillo 

Cuando estoy feliz veo amarillo, amarillo

 

Tengo un arcoíris en mi corazón

Tengo mil emociones, todas de un color

Tengo un arcoíris en mi corazón

Tengo mil emociones, todas de un color

 

Siento verde, con dos sentimientos diferentes

La envidia y la esperanza en mí , son verde

Rojo, cuando me apasiono siento rojo

Cuando tengo rabia y me enojo, veo rojo 

 

Tengo un arcoíris en mi corazón

Tengo mil emociones, todas de un color

Tengo un arcoíris en mi corazón

Tengo mil emociones, todas de un color

 

Y si en tu corazón notas colores diferentes 

Todos somos distintos 

Y solo tú sabes que sientes 

Son tus colores, tus emociones

Tú eres el dueño de tus sentimientos 

 

Tengo un arcoíris en mi corazón

Tengo mil emociones, todas de un color

Tengo un arcoíris en mi corazón

Tengo mil emociones, todas de un color

 

Tengo un arcoíris lleno de emoción

Que brota del alma y de mi corazón

Amarillo el sol, azul como el mar

Rojo la pasión, de mi corazón

Tengo un arcoíris lleno de emoción

Que brota del alma y de mi corazón

Verde como la esperanza 

Que da vida y que te abraza

Y el violeta con su suavidad

Con el color naranja 

Y esa fuerza que levanta

Y el índigo que no quede atrás

 

Tengo un arcoíris lleno de emoción

Que brota del alma y de mi corazón

Tengo un arcoíris lleno de emoción

Que brota del alma y de mi corazón

TRANSLATION

 

I have a rainbow in my heart

I have a thousand emotions, a color for each one

I have a rainbow in my heart

I have a thousand emotions, a color for each one

 

Blue, when I feel sad it’s blue

Or when I'm calm I see blue, blue

Yellow, when I smile I shine so bright

When I'm happy I see yellow, yellow

 

I have a rainbow in my heart

I have a thousand emotions, a color for each one

I have a rainbow in my heart

I have a thousand emotions, a color for each one

 

I feel green, with two different feelings

Envy and hope for me are green

Red, when I'm passionate I see red

When I’m mad or angry I see red

 

I have a rainbow in my heart

I have a thousand emotions, a color for each one

I have a rainbow in my heart

I have a thousand emotions, a color for each one

 

And if in your heart you notice other colors

We are all different

And only you know what you feel

They’re your colors, your emotions

You are the owner of your feelings

 

I have a rainbow in my heart

I have a thousand emotions, a color for each one

I have a rainbow in my heart

I have a thousand emotions, a color for each one

 

I have a rainbow full of emotion

That springs from the soul and from my heart

Yellow like the sun, blue like the ocean

Red like the passion in my heart

I have a rainbow full of emotion

That springs from the soul and from my heart

Green like hope that gives life and gives comfort

And violet with its softness

With the color orange, a force that lifts you

And indigo, let’s not leave that behind

 

I have a rainbow full of emotion

That springs from the soul and from my heart

I have a rainbow full of emotion

That springs from the soul and from my heart
