It’s a particular pleasure to welcome back Lobo from Spain, who took part in HCSC a few times in the middle of the last decade. Hello again!

In his own words:
Started making music in the early 90s with a Casio keyboard and a four track Fostex mixer.

Released the album El viaje interior (mcd records) in 1995.

Wrote a few songs for La Prohibida from 2005 to 2015.

Nowadays, writing and recording songs just for the pleasure of it.

Lyrics:
VEN
A LA HORA HABITUAL
AL CAER LA OSCURIDAD
QUE ME ACARICIARÁ
ME ARRULLARÁ

HAZ
UNA MUESCA EN LA PARED
UNA PAUSA CADA VEZ
E ILUMÍNAME
ILÚSTRAME

Y DI
LO QUE QUIERAS DECIR
ALGO ESPECIAL
ALGO GENTIL
DI LO QUE QUIERAS DECIR
ALGO TRIVIAL
ALGO INFANTIL
ALGO IRREAL
QUE ME HAGA REÍR


MI RETIRO ESPIRITUAL
LA COLUMNA VERTEBRAL
QUE ME SUJETARÁ
ME AGITARÁ

Y DI
LO QUE QUIERAS DECIR
ALGO ESPECIAL
ALGO GENTIL
DI LO QUE QUIERAS DECIR
ALGO TRIVIAL
ALGO INFANTIL
ALGO IRREAL
Y HAZ LO QUE PUEDAS POR MÍ

ACÉRCATE Y DI
LO QUE QUIERAS DECIR
ALGO ESPECIAL
ALGO GENTIL
DI LO QUE DEBAS DECIR
ALGO TRIVIAL
ALGO INFANTIL
ALGO IRREAL
QUE NO TE IMPORTE MENTIR

Translation:
COME
AT THE USUAL TIME
IN THE FALLING DARKNESS
THAT WILL CARESS ME
WILL LULL ME

MAKE
A NOTCH IN THE WALL
A PAUSE EACH TIME
AND ENLIGHTEN ME
ILUSTRATE ME

AND SAY
WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY
SOMETHING SPECIAL
SOMETHING GENTLE
SAY WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY
SOMETHING TRIVIAL
SOMETHING CHILDISH
SOMETHING UNREAL
THAT MAKES ME LAUGH

BE
MY SPIRITUAL RETREAT
THE BACKBONE
THAT WILL HOLD ME
WILL SHAKE ME

AND SAY
WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY
SOMETHING SPECIAL
SOMETHING GENTLE
SAY WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY
SOMETHING TRIVIAL
SOMETHING CHILDISH
SOMETHING UNREAL
AND TRY YOUR BEST FOR ME

COME CLOSE TO ME AND SAY
WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY
SOMETHING SPECIAL
SOMETHING GENTLE
SAY WHAT YOU MUST SAY
SOMETHING TRIVIAL
SOMETHING CHILDISH
SOMETHING UNREAL
DON’T BE AFRAID OF LYING
