A MEDIA LUZ lyrics

LYRICS: Carlos César Lenzi
MUSIC: Edgardo Donatto

Corrientes tres cuatro ocho,
segundo piso, ascensor;
no hay porteros ni vecinos
adentro, cocktel y amor.
Pisito que puso Maple,
piano, estera y velador...
un telefon que contesta,
una fonola que llora
viejos tangos de mi flor,
y un gato de porcelana
pa que no maulle al amor.

Y todo a media luz,
que es un brujo el amor,
a media luz los besos,
a media luz los dos...
Y todo a media luz,
crepusculo interior,
que suave terciopelo
la media luz de amor.

Juncal doce veinticuatro,
telefonea sin temor;
de tarde, te con masitas,
de noche, tango y amor; 
los domingos, te danzante,
los lunes, desolación.
Hay de todo en la casita:
almohadones y divanes
como en botica... coco, 
afombras que no hacen ruido
y mesa puesta al amor...

Tango Shoes

In tango, the relationship between lead and follower, man and woman, is so intense and all consuming, that there is simply no time for small talk. The last man I danced with, I know more intricately in many ways than his lover: I know that he perspires in a tiny spot above his brow; that when the dance slows and our connection is tight, his breathing almost stops; that when my leg sweeps his, he arches his neck imperceptibly upwards; that when another couple got too close he subconsciously enclosed me in a protective embrace; and that his hand rested so delicately on the flesh of my back. Yet all I know about him are his name and his country of origin. Small talk is a luxury not afforded to us tango addicts. - Anastasia Demaggio
