TINTA ROJA lyrics

LYRICS: Cátulo Castillo
MUSIC: Sebastian Piana


Paredón, 
tinta roja en el gris 
del ayer...
Tu emoción 
de ladrillo, feliz
sobre mi callejón, 
con un borrón,
pintó la esquina...
Y el botón 
que en el ancho de la noche
puso el filo de la ronda
como un broche...
Y aquel buzón 
carmín, 
y aquel fondín
donde lloraba el tano
un rubio amor lejano
que mojaba con bon vin.

¿Dónde estará mi arrabal?...
¿Quién se robó mi niñez?...
¿En qué rincón, luna mía,
volcás, como entonces,
tu clara alegría?
Veredas que yo pisé,
malevos que ya no son,
bajo tu cielo de raso
trasnocha un pedazo
de mi corazón...

Paredón, 
tinta roja en el gris 
del ayer...
Borbotón 
de mi sangre infeliz
que vertí en el malvón
de aquel balcón 
que la escondía...
Yo no sé
si fue negro de mis penas,
o fue rojo de tus venas 
mi sangría...
Porque llegó y se fue tras el carmín
y el gris 
fondín lejano
donde lloraba el tano
sus nostalgias de bon vin!

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
