Santiago Veros wrote Almas de Barro at the age of 19, dedicating it to a young woman who at the time was shy and with whom he rarely talked. This piece intimately describes the moments during music theory classes when the two would look at each other continuously, youthfully, and silently, as if unable to do anything else.

Translation of the lyrics

The lost looks

They meld in the distance
With dreams in the silence
Of the eyes’
Sweet embrace.

The dreams merge
In solitude:

And the lost souls merge
In the whisper
Of the sweet embrace
And the shadows’ caresses
Awaken dreams.

And the lost souls
meld in dreams.

Poem by Santiago Veros
