Desperté al año dos mil siete con esta canción tocándose por sí sola en mi cabeza

Telling stories
(Tracy Chapman)

There is fiction in the space between
the lines on your page of memories,
write it down but it doesn't mean
you're not just telling stories.

There is fiction in the space between
you and reality,
you will do and say anything
to make your everyday life
seem less mundane.
There is fiction in the space between
you and me.

There's a science fiction in the space between
you and me,
a fabrication of a grand scheme
where I am a scary monster.

I eat the city and as I leave the scene
in my spaceship I am laughing.
In your remembrance of your bad dream
there's no one but you standing.

Leave the pity and the blame
for the ones who do not speak,
you write the words to get respect and compassion
and for posterity,
you write the words and make believe
there is truth in the space between.

There is fiction in the space between
you and everybody,
give us all what we need,
give us one more sad sordid story.
But in the fiction of the space between
sometimes a lie is the best thing,
sometimes a lie is the best thing.
