Decision


There comes a time to take a stand,
To decide which way to go;
And yesterday, I decided from now on
El ser mas importante sere` yo!

Le dije 'Basta, ya' a la tristeza,
And finally, it all became so clear;
I'll search for the path that will deliver
Las ganas de vivir y de reir

Me veo diferente en el espejo,
Por fin, ahora se pa` donde voy;
I'd shout it from the rooftops, if I could:
Yo soy mas importante, desde hoy!

De veras, ya no trates de buscarme,
No me encuentro en el mismo sitio;
Yo he decidido soltar las alas,
Que el ser mas importante... soy yo!
