This song is so sad. My family has had a history of being raised fatherless so I guess it is something I can relate to. My mother was raised without a father and my father’s father passed away when my dad was young. I personally am a product of divorced parents that is currently being raised by mostly my mother. My father however did not completely disowned me. In fact he still cares about me very much. I just so happens that I am raised mostly about my mother.
It is a beautifully sad song. This song, by Mana, tells an anecdote of a kid that sees his father leave him and his family. He tells how his father kissed his forehead and said goodnight before he left. The young boy talks to the cuckoo clock (The name of this song translates to Cuckoo Clock fyi) about how he is scared. He tells the clock to turn on the light and turn off the time. It is really saddening to hear this story of a father leaving the family from the perspective of a young boy.
It’s a wonderful song that always makes me feel sad. I wish that everyone understood Spanish just so they can hear the beauty of this song.
The world seems mediocre at best. Nothing special really happens. It is possible that I am asking for much, but how can you not? How can one be satisfied with the mundane when I know that there is potential for greatness?
People are stuck in their routines seeing the world in black and white. They are color blind. I want to be different. I want to interact with people. I want to live life as much as I can and experience what this world has to offer. I want to live life in color.
