Juanes and his song “La Camisa Negra” seem to fit my dark mood today.! Jajaja…but at least my mood and the song have a good beat 🙂

English translation
the black t-shirt

“I have a black shirt
for today my love is in mourning.
Today there is a pain in my soul
because of your spell.
Today I already know that you don’t love me
which is the the thing that hurts the most.
I have a black shirt
and a pain that dwells within me.
It’s a shame that I am alone
purely because you lied
and also because of my damned bad luck
on the day that I first met you.
From drinking the malevolent poison of your love
I remain near death and full of sorrow,
still breathing the bitter smoke of your goodbye,
and since you left, all I have is…
I have a black shirt
to match the darkness in my soul
I have completely lost my cool over you,
Lost it right up to my bed.
Come-a, come-a, come on, baby
I say to you that the black shirt
disguises the fact that underneath I’m a corpse.
I have a black shirt
and already your love doesn’t interest me
Yesterday what I thought was pure happiness
Today I realize is pure ****
Wednesday afternoon you never showed up
and never gave me the least hint
so here I am with the black shirt
and your suitcases in the door.
It’s a shame that I am alone
purely because you lied
and also because of my damned bad luck
on the day that I first met you.
From drinking the malevolent poison of your love
I remain near death and full of sorrow,
still breathing the bitter smoke of your goodbye,
and since you left, all I have is…
I have a black shirt
to match the darkness in my soul
I have completely lost my cool over you,
Lost it right up to my bed.
Come-a, come-a, come on, baby
I say to you that the black shirt
disguises the fact that underneath I’m a corpse.
I have a black shirt
to match the darkness in my soul
I have completely lost my cool over you,
Lost it right up to my bed.
Come-a, come-a, come on, baby
I say to you that the black shirt
disguises the fact that underneath I’m a corpse.”

The band Camila has a moody and yearning sound to their love songs. They amazingly put into words (and music) what many of us wish we could say to our loved one. Bésame is one of those songs. Enjoy…

English translation
Kiss me

“Kiss me without it being the right moment
Without mercy and in silence
Kiss me, stop time
Make this that I’m feeling grow

(Chorus)
Kiss me, as if the world were ending after that
Kiss me and kiss by kiss turn the sky upside down
Kiss me without a reason
Just because the heart wishes for it
Kiss me

Feel me in the wind,
As I die slowly
Kiss me without a motive
And I will be with you forever

(Chorus)

Ooh… oh… Kiss me

(Chorus)

Kiss me like this, without holding back
Stay within me, without conditions
Just give me a single reason to
And I will stay (And I will stay)
And I will stay (And I will stay)”

Edgar Oceransky’s “Estoy Aqui” is a personal favorite of mine. It’s one of those songs that if I didn’t live in Mexico and hadn’t had a Mexican boyfriend at some point – it would never have crossed my path. And that would have been heartbreaking. Because it’s usually the dreams and goals you didn’t get to that leave you inconsolable and regretful. That’s how I would feel if this song had never echoed in my ears, my heart, and my soul. It has just the right amount of heartbreak, longing, and loneliness. Enjoy 🙂

P.S. The translation is rusty because it wasn’t a cross-over song. But it does the trick and the music does the rest.

I’m here

“rain was falling on the balcony,
And you, smoking a cigarette on the couch,
Your voice, calling on the balcony to see rain.

They were my hands from the strings to the paper,
Also, your eyes from my face to the wall,
Without faith, knowing that you have finished raining.

I’m here without you,
Sunk into silence,
I’m without you here,
Wishing you back with me,
Let’s go to the balcony to see rain.

Always you swore that one day were not going to return,
because together and there was nothing else to do,
Then you left with the car until six.

Rain continues to fall on the balcony,
And you, you’re not with your cigarette on the couch,
And trying to write this song.

I’m here without you,
Sunk into silence,
I’m without you here,
Wishing you back with me,
Let’s go to the balcony to see rain.

I’m here without you,
Sunk into silence,
I’m without you here,
Wishing you back with me,
Let’s go to the balcony to see rain.”

On of my favorite songs ever.!! Enrique Bunbury’s Infinito is hauntingly beautiful. I’m sure that I have posted this song at some point during my early blog years. But it has not made it onto the love song list. Therefore, I think it’s time to rectify that void and share this emotional song with everyone 🙂 Enjoy…

Boundless

“You made a deep impression on me
And now you hurt me*
If everything that’s born
Perish the same way
A moment leaves
And never comes again

And they used to say how beautiful
It was to see us walking
Loving each other boundless
They thought it’d always be the same

How did we let it happen
What did we do wrong
It was due to this damn arrogance
We didn’t know how to swallow

And lie to me a bit at least
Say that you love me even more
That in the meanwhile
You had a really bad time
That any of those fools
Knew how to make you laugh
And that the only thing you care about
Is this poor wretch

(chorus)

And the day I die
And I’ll die long before you
I only want one grief to be cried over
In front of my coffin
That this wound in my soul
Never got to heal up
And it’ll be desperate
Until it sees you coming

(chorus)

A moment leaves and never comes back
A moment leaves…”

I don’t know much about the band Tush. And honestly, “Acostumbrado” is the only song of theirs that I know. My ex introduced me to this particular song. It was one of his favorites. But it quickly became one of mine for many reasons. But ultimately, because I think deep down we can all relate to the desire to be close with someone.

We spend so much time working, running errands, being good and responsible citizens of our city…our world. Responsible creatures to a fault sometimes. Yet, in our lives there is such a dearth of those beautiful, quiet and intimate moments with someone we love. I hunger for that in my life now. More than I hunger for anything else. Enjoy your weekend everyone 🙂 And may love find you ❤

Tush – Acostumbrado (“Habitual” or “Used to“)

“How I love to hear
that game of words
when I am still awake
in the silence here in the bed

without hanging up the telephone
suddenly dawn is upon us
I feel time go so fast
even the moon dissipates

How I would like to have you by my side today
and tell you how much I miss you
huo…

and it’s that I’m used to in the silence
hearing your voice that gets to my bones
and the warmth of your tone most intense
I overflow with love, how I wish you could feel this

How I wish to be right next to your laughs
and feeling your caress all day, I would be there
For now this is what I have left, to find a way
to see you in my arms

How I would like to have you by my side today
and tell you how much I miss you
huo…

it’s that I’m used to in the silence
hearing your voice that gets to my bones
and the warmth of your tone most intense
I overflow with love, how I wish you could feel this

and it’s that I’m used to in the silence
hearing your voice that gets to my bones
and the warmth of your tone most intense
I overflow with love, how I wish you could feel this”

I think Reik’s “Inolvidable” was probably the second Spanish love song I learned. I loved it because unlike some other tragic love songs it was happy and upbeat. What a great way to ring in the new year.!! Happy New Year and happy weekend everyone.! Feliz Año Nuevo y feliz fin de semana.!

English translation
Unforgettable

she was so beautiful, she was so beautiful,
her look still burns me,
how i would like to forget her,
but she nears and i can’t help it…

Because when she talks with her eyes,
she says things i cant understand,
and undresses herself little by little,
and converts into your skin.

And i don’t know how to live,
if i can’t remove her from here,
what i wouldn’t give to kiss her
to embrace her one more time…
and i don’t want to let her ecape
that’s if i ever find her again,
i don’t want to lose her
because its only her
unforgettable for my heart,
unforgettable….

Was like a story,
she left like the wind,
sometimes i say
that maybe i made it all up…
if i could only,
have some proof,
some reminder that i was with her…

I am going a bit crazy
sometimes I wake
and I feel here my grief,
that whispers in my ear..
and says “where are you?…my love…” (or just ‘love’)

And i don’t know how to live,
if i can’t remove her from here,
what i wouldn’t give to kiss her
to embrace her one more time…
and i don’t want to let her escape
that’s if i ever find her again,
i don’t want to lose her
because its only her
unforgettable for my heart,
unforgettable….

And i don’t know how to live,
if i can’t remove her from here,
what i wouldn’t give to kiss her
to embrace her one more time…
and i don’t want to let her escape
that’s if i ever find her again,
i don’t want to lose her
because its only her
unforgettable for my heart,
unforgettable…”

When I moved to Mexico for work (and for a boy), there were two very popular Camila songs at the time. It was a hard decision which one to showcase first, but I decided to go with “Mientes” or “You Lie”. It also seemed a very appropriate song since my dream job (and boy) ended up both being a mirage. But in the end, everything worked out, because I was led to a new job and a new man and new friends and a new life. Enjoy the song! And have a great week 🙂

http://lyricstranslate.com/en/mientes-you-lie.html-2#ixzz3uK9iQbQl

English translation
You lie

“You came into my life to teach me.
You knew how to turn me on and then turn me off.
You made yourself indispensable for me.

With my eyes closed, I followed you.
If I was looking for pain, I found it.
You’re not the person I thought you were,
the one I believed, the one I lost.

You lie. You hurt me and then you regret it.
There’s no use in you trying anymore.
I don’t feel like feeling anymore.
You come back right when I’m about to forget you.
Look for your path somewhere else.
Meanwhile I’ll look for the time I lost.
Today I’m better off without you.

I’m leaving brand new, remembering who I am.
Knowing what you give, and what I give
and the path that you looked for.
And time is yours and yours alone and I understand
that things are not forever because yes,
you’re not the person I thought you were,
the one I believed, the one I lost.

And today I’m better off without you.
You come back right when I’m about to forget you.
Look for your path somewhere else.
Meanwhile, I’ll look for the time I lost.
Today I’m better off without you.
Today I’m better off without you.
Today I’m better off without you.”
