Nelly: Paint my face in your magazines,
Make it look whiter than it seems,
Paint me over with your dreams,
Shove away my ethnicity,
Burn every notion that
I may have a flame inside to fight,
And say just what is on my mind,
Without offending your might.

N/J: Cuz this life is too short to live it just for you,
But when you feel so powerless what are you gonna do,
Say what you want

Nelly: I saw her face outside today,
Weatherworn, looking all the rage,
They look her passion and her gaze and made a poster,
Now itґs moccasins we sport,
We take the culture and contort,
Perhaps only to distort what we are hiding.

Juanes: Esta vida es un resplendor,
Un arcoiris de ilusiуn,
Y si en tн no brilla el sol,
Tu no hallarбs la soluciуn.
Abre tu corazуn, abre tu corazуn, abre tu corazуn.

Nelly: Hey you, the one outside, are you ever gonna get in, get in,
Hey you, the one that donґt fit in, how ya gonna get in,
Hey you, the one outside, are you ever gonna get in, get in,
Broken teeth, broken jaw, broken mojo.

Yeah this life is too short to live it just for you,
But when you feel so powerless what are you gonna do,

Cuz this life is too short to live it just for you,
But when you feel so powerless what are you gonna do.

Juanes: Esta vida es un resplendor,
Un arcoiris de ilusiуn,
Y si en tн no brilla el sol,
Tu no hallarбs la solucion.
Abre tu corazуn, abre tu corazуn, abre tu corazуn.

Nelly: Say what you want.

Juanes: Esta vida es un resplendor.

Nelly: Say what you want.

Juanes: Abre tu corazуn.

Nelly: Say what you want.

Juanes: Abre tu corazуn.

Nelly: Say what you want.

Nelly: Life is too short

Juanes: Abre tu corazуn.

Nelly: To live it just for you.

Juanes: Abre tu corazуn.

Nelly: But when you feel so powerless.

Juanes: Abre tu corazуn.

Nelly: What are you gonna do.
