Here, the Spanish lyrics with the English translation.

Libre

Tiene casi veinte años
y ya está
cansado de soñar,

pero tras la frontera está su hogar,

su mundo, su ciudad.

Piensa que la alambrada sólo es
un trozo de metal,

algo que nunca puede detener
sus ansias de volar.
Libre, como el sol cuando amanece,

yo soy libre, como el mar.

Libre, como el ave que escapó de su prisión
y
puede, al fin, volar.

Libre, como el viento que recoge
mi lamento y mi pesar,

camino sin cesar detrás de la verdad
y
sabré lo que es al fin, la libertad.
Con su amor por bandera se marchó
 cantando una canción,

marchaba tan feliz que no escuchó 
la voz que le llamó,

y tendido en el suelo se quedó
 sonriendo y sin hablar,

sobre su pecho flores carmesí,
brotaban sin cesar…
Libre, como el sol cuando amanece,

yo soy libre, como el mar.

Libre, como el ave que escapó de su prisión
y
puede, al fin, volar.

Libre, como el viento que recoge
mi lamento y mi pesar,

camino sin cesar detrás de la verdad
y
sabré lo que es al fin, la libertad.
Libre, como el sol cuando amanece,

yo soy libre, como el mar.

Libre, como el ave que escapó de su prisión
y
puede, al fin, volar.

Libre, como el viento que recoge
mi lamento y mi pesar,

camino sin cesar detrás de la verdad
y
sabré lo que es al fin, la libertad.
He’s almost 20
and he’s already
 tired of dreaming

But across the border his home is lying,

his world and his city.

He thinks that the fence is only 
a piece of metal,

something that can never stop
his desire to fly.
Free as the sun at dawn,

I am free, like the sea.

Free as a bird who escaped from its prison
and
can finally fly.

Free as the wind
which picks up my sorrow and my grief,

I keep walking for the truth
and
I will finally know what is freedom.
With love as flag he left,
singing a song,

going so happy that he did not hear
the voice which called,

and he ended lying on the ground
smiling and not talking,

crimson flowers on his breast,
endlessly pouring…
Free as the sun at dawn,

I am free, like the sea.

Free as a bird who escaped from its prison
and
can finally fly.

Free as the wind which picks up
my sorrow and my grief,

I keep walking for the truth
and
I will finally know what is freedom.
Free as the sun at dawn,

I am free, like the sea.

Free as a bird who escaped from its prison
and
can finally fly.

Free as the wind wich picks up
my sorrow and my grief,

I keep walking for the truth
and
I will finally know what is freedom.
