    Default phrase translation

    I want the translation of these phrase: "Special unspoken without sound".

    These phrase appears in a song of the band "King of Leon" named "Cold Desert".

    Who can help me with this?

    Hi Jonaton,

    "Special unspoken without sound"
    This sentence doesn't make much sense, and seems to depend on a certain degree of 'poetic license'.

    I haven't heard the song, but I think this phrase is used to describe the desert mentioned in the previous line:
    'It's cold in the desert, water never sees the ground'

    I would translate it like this:
    [Hace frio en el desierto, el agua nunca ve la tierra]
    Especial, sin decirlo, sin sonido


    Hope that helps a bit.

    Forgot to add -
    it's THIS phrase, not THESE phrase
    because phrase is singular

    From listening to the song and how the phrase is used in it, I would suggest that the phrase is actually

    "Special, unspoken, without sound".

    which I would translate as

    ["Especial, del cual no se habla, sin sonido"]

    And as jworley suggested, they are probably adjectives referring to the desert described in the song.

    Hope this helps!!!
