con un ancla imprescindible de ilusión

No te nubles de amargura, ay ay ay ay ay

(1) Para tocar mi nariz en tu pecera = to touch my nose in your fishbowl. In Spanish this sentence is not gramticaly right either, so I just translated it was. It should be "para tocar con mi nariz en tu pecera"
(2) Mojado en ti = wet in you (wet of you,wet with you). This sentence is also strange in Spanish. I guess he is just being poetic.
(3) Caynne/Cayenne pepper = the long, wrinkled, twisted fruit of the plant Capsicum annuum longum. Also the plant itself.

I just stumbled onto this blog - what a great idea! This is a great song, too.

A fish loves water, so a fishtank (his love, as in this song), wants to be wet in the bowl.. True poetry, very nice song!

Big thank you Laura!

I think ilusión in Spanish in this context is closer to happiness/joy, as in "me da mucha ilusión" = "I'm very glad/it makes me very happy "

A guy that I'm falling for posted this song on his wall on face book and told me to listen to it that it was for me. I always loved this song, now that I know the english to it I'm blown away. Thanks for the Translation..................
