El silencio de la sociedad ante la Violencia de Género

Tracy Chapman

Letter:

Last night I heard the screaming
Loud voices behind the wall
Another sleepless night for me
It won’t do no good to call
The police Always come late
If they come at all

And when they arrive
They say they can’t interfere
With domestic affairs
Between a man and his wife
And as they walk out the door
The tears well up in her eyes

Last night I heard the screaming
Then a silence that chilled my soul
I prayed that I was dreaming
When I saw the ambulance in the road
And the policeman said
I’m here to keep the peace
Will the crowd disperse
I think we all clould use some sleep

Traducción:

Anoche escuché un grito
Voces altas detrás de las paredes
Otra noche sin dormir para mí
No haría ningún bien llamar
The police. Always late
If you ever come

And when they
They say they can not interfere
With domestic adventures
Between a man and his wife
And as they walk out the door
Tears fall from her eyes.

Anoche escuché un grito
Then a silence gave a shiver to my soul
I prayed that I was dreaming
When I saw the ambulance on the way
And the policeman said
'I'm here to keep the peace
The crowd disperses
I think everyone should sleep’
