Well, @sentense said he wanted me to write a song in English, and although I had different plans, this is what I did. Also, this is my response to the Loteria challenge, where I was given the symbol of the drum. And it happens to fit in the positive protest challenge as well. 😉
You knock on my door and you are scared out of your mind,
come in and have a cup of coffee, it will help you to unwind!
You are frightened of the latest news on the radio and TV,
just eat a piece of chocolate while I listen to your plea!
You ask me why I'm calm when the whole world has gone insane?
I pour another cup and answer: I'll try to explain!
I'm dancing to a different drum,
dancing to the beat of my own heart,
I'm dancing in the darkness,
I don't know what is to come.
So do you want to dance with me, my friend?
Do you want to see this through until the end?
Believe me, I believe that we shall overcome!
And we are not the only ones, there are so many who will fight
this sense of doom and desperation! Let's do it side by side!
We're dancing to a different drum,
dancing to the heartbeat of the earth,
we're dancing in the darkness,
and we're dancing in the sun.
You stay with me all afternoon, we cry and laugh and talk,
When the coffeepot is empty, I say: Let's go for a walk!
You stop to buy a head of cauliflower from a market stand
the farmer wraps the vegetable, puts it in your hand
and asks: How can you look so happy when the world has gone insane?
You smile a little smile and answer: I'll try to explain!
I'm dancing to a different drum …
