About the song

The lyrics of the song talk about the end of a relationship and about a person who has left it all and abandons her partner, leading to suicide.

In the song there is a piano in the background. There are also some electronic sounds and a guitar. The verses begin the a phrase that stands out do to repetition: "I sell." This makes reference to getting rid of objects that make the narrator have ties with her partner or remember him, as in "I sell a worn camera that used to capture the gaze that in life I shall record." The songs as a quick beat until it arrives at a bridge point where it slows down, and later, in the chorus, the beat picks up again. According to Xabi and Amaia, the son is a combination between the choruses by Xabi and the verses by Amaia.

The musical bridge afore mentioned was created because the producer Nigel Walker asked for it, and was written by Amaia in a kitchen recipe book, since she had no other place where she could write it at the time. Though the company proposed that this be the first single of the album, it was not so; however, it got to be number one of "Los 40 Principales" on October 14, 2006.


The video for this song was produced by "Struendo" again and was recorded in Toledo in an ancient palace from the 12th century. In the video the members of the band play in a dark living room and in the chorus of the song, feather fly around in slow mode. At the same time there are also objects falling in slow mode throughout the whole video; there are plates, fish tanks, and even some of the band members falling.
