from EL ALMA AL AIRE: EDICION ESPECIAL

written by Alejandro Sanz

“El Alma Al Aire: Edición Especial” is the 2001 re-release of Alejandro Sanz’s 2000 smash hit “El Alma Al Aire.” This special edition album is a double CD release. The first CD presents  the original album, produced by the talented Emanuele Ruffinengo, that sold more than five million albums worldwide to date.

The second disc offers five new tracks. One of those new songs, a wonderful ballad entitled “Me Iré,” was produced by David Foster and it is also included in an English version entitled “The Hardest Day.” This tune is a special collaboration with the popular Irish group, The Corrs. Foster’s production on “The Hardest Day” matches beautifully Sanz’s intense latin style with The Corrs’ pure pop sounds and the result is a first class adult contemporary ballad. The vocal interplay between Andrea Corr and Sanz, under Foster’s guidance, is really impressive as is the refined arrangement and instrumental execution with a little Irish flavor given by The Corrs’ violin and tin whistle.
Among the other new cuts on “En Alma Al Aire: Special Edition” is another duet with “The Corrs” entitled “Una Noche” and also “Adoro,” a pairing with veteran Mexican singer, Armando Manzanero.

Lyrics

One more day, one last look
Before I leave it all behind
And play the role that’s meant for us
That said we’d say goodbye
One more night by your side
Where our dreams collide
And all we have is everything
And there’s no pain there’s no hurt
There’s no wrong it’s all right
If I promise to believe will you believe
That there’s nowhere that we’d rather be
Nowhere describes where we are
Ive no choice, I love you
Leave, love you wave goodbye
And all I ever wanted was to stay
And nothing in this worlds gonna change, change
Never wanna wake up from this night
Never wanna leave this moment
Waiting for you only, only you
Never gonna forget every single thing you do
When loving you is my finest hour
Leaving you, the hardest day of my life
The hardest day of my life
I still breathe, I still eat
And the sun it shines the same as it did yesterday
But there’s no warmth, no light
I feel empty inside
But I never will regret a single day
I know it isn’t going to go away
What I’m feeling for you
I will always love you
Leave, love you wave goodbye
And all, and all I ever wanted was to stay
Nothing in this world’s gonna change…
Never wanna wake up from this night
Never wanna leave this moment
Waiting for you only, only you
Never gonna forget every single thing you do
When loving you is my finest hour
I never knew I’d ever feel this way
I feel for you…
Never wanna wake up, I feel for you, from this night
Never wanna leave this moment
Wainting for you only, only you
Never gonna forget every single thing you do
When loving you is my finest hour
Leaving you, the hardest day of my life…
Never wanna wake up from this night
