about

An important part of ‘Not A Citizen’ is to create art that evokes memories that have been a part of Cristobal Jimenez Van Cauwelaert’s journey since he left Chile in 2014 to pursue his career to London. Similarly to a photo album, songs can trigger memories of past experiences or places, and ‘Andes’ is no exception.

‘Andes’ captures the melancholic feeling of nostalgia of missing the South American land and its people. The slow tempo and spacing evokes a sense of picturesque emptiness that is found in places like the Andes Mountains or the Pacific Ocean.

Although the lyrics were written with a specific location and experience in mind, the song conveys an emotion that is familiar to so many, especially for those who have left their country to see the world.

lyrics

There’s a place by the ocean
Surrounded by mountains full of potions
There’s a place by the river
Surrounded by people full of shivers

You’ve been here before
You were thinking for too long
This place have gave you al the love
It’s time to fly and leave this land and grow

Just tell me,
Why are you son hungry?
Just tell me,
Why are you son hungry all the time?
Just tell me,
Why are you son hungry?
Just tell me,
Why are you son hungry?

There’s a place by the mountains
Surrounded by lakes full of fountains
There’s a place by the river
Surrounded by gold and silver

You’ve been here before
You were thinking for too long
This place have gave you al the love
It’s time to fly and leave this land and grow

Just tell me,
Why are you son hungry?
Just tell me,
Why are you son hungry all the time?
Just tell me,
Why are you son hungry?
Just tell me,
Why are you son hungry?
