    Sergent Garcia, a heavyweight in the European mestizo music scene, returns with his first full- length album in five years with the groundbreaking Una y Otra Vez (Time and Time Again).

Una y Otra Vez marks this former rocker's return to his independent roots with a renewed creative energy.

about

“Time and Time Again” means that the struggle never ends, against oneself, against society, against oppression, but it also means that in the darkest place there is always hope and light. Life is a struggle.
--------
“Una y otra vez” quiere decir que la lucha nunca se termina, contra uno mismo, contra la sociedad, contra la opresión, pero esto también quiere decir que en el lugar más oscuro hay siempre la esperanza y la luz. La vida es una lucha.
--------
« Una y otra vez » veut dire que la lutte ne se termine jamais, contre soi-même, contre la société, contre l’oppression, que même dans le lieu le plus obscur il y a toujours de l’espoir et de la lumière. La vie est une lutte permanente.

lyrics

Caminando por las calles de mi alma
Laberinto extraño de mi soledad
Pensando en las claves de mi existencia
Viajando en el desierto de mi intimidad
Repasando y analizando de mi vida los sabores
Cuando fueron mis errores
Mis alegrías y desamores
Con que piedra yo tropecé
Cuál fue la meta que yo no alcancé
Cuáles tragos amargos de tragedias y otros milagros
Caminando entre fieles y fieras
Recorriendo el sendero una y otra vez
Una y otra vez

Poco a poco se diluyen y se van
Las nubes que desde años, nuestros sueños alborotan
A lo lejos en la niebla, voces se escuchan
Bajan de las montañas, los tambores reclaman
Soñadores con soluciones vibramos con inteligencia
Nuestro sueños no son ilusiones
Tenemos corazón y tenemos consciencia
Y aunque caigamos mil y una vez
Naceremos con más fuerza una y otra vez
Una y otra vez

Caminando en las calles de la ciudad
No tengo miedo porque sé que un día
Todo vuelve a empezar
Y ese día caminaremos con alegría
Porque nuestros sueños se habrán hecho realidad
Seguiremos soñando, seguiremos cantando
Aunque te cueste aceptarlo
Estaremos siempre como sombras vigilando
Una y otra vez

--------------

Walking down the streets of my soul
The strange labyrinth of my solitude
Thinking of the keys to my existence
Traveling in the desert of my intimacy
Reflecting and analyzing the flavors of my life
When I made mistakes
My joys and my heartbreak
The stones I stumbled over
The goals that I never reached
What bitter days of tragedy and other miracles
Walking between the faithful and the fierce
Traveling the path time and time again
Time and time again

Little by little they dissipate and leave
The clouds that for years rampaged in our dreams
Far away in the fog voices can be heard
Coming down from the mountains,
the drums are calling out
Dreamers with solutions we tremble with intelligence
Our dreams are not illusions
We have heart and we have a conscience
And even though we fall a thousand and one times
We will be born again with even more strength time
and time again
Time and time again

Walking through the streets of the city
I am not afraid because I know that one day
Everything will begin again
And that day we will walk with happiness
Because our dreams have become a reality
We will keep on dreaming, keep on singing
Even though it may be hard to accept
We will always be like shadows, waiting
Time and time again
