Oh Orlando, your rainbow heart is bleeding

Red, raining down lágrimas Latinas de colores

Lives lost, stolen in segundos, vanished

An unbelievable act, rooted in one man’s odio

Never-ending, destroying the sanctuario of many

Donde podían ser quienes eran without fear

Oh Orlando, our collective heart is bleeding
