CASTELLANO
ENGLISH
No se que daño he hecho yo pa’ merecer
esta cadena inaguantable de dolor,
que cuando no te beso no puedo respirar
y siento que me ahoga tus labios al besar.
De sufrir tanto perdí la dignidad
y no me importa saber que me engañás.
¿No ves que necesito de vos? Te quiero ver.
Habláme como siempre. Decí que me querés.

Yo se que es mentira
todo lo que estás diciendo,
que soy en tu vida
sólo un remordimiento.
Yo se que es de pena
que mentís pa’ no matarme;
lo se, y sin embargo
sin esa mentira no puedo vivir.

Anoche mismo he podido comprobar
que ni la puerta de esta casa respetás;
yo vi con estos ojos los besos que te dio
y oí que se reían burlándose los dos.
Humildemente, sin embargo, ya lo ves,
yo te pregunto: ¿Todavía me querés?,
y cerrando los ojos escucho que jurás
que nunca me engañaste, que no me olvidarás.

I don’t know what damage I’ve done to deserve
this unbearable chain of pain,
that when I don’t kiss you, I can’t breathe
and I feel suffocated by your lips kissing me.
Suffering so much I lost my dignity
and I don’t care knowing that you cheat on me.
Can not you see I need you? I want to see you.
Talk to me as always. Tell me that you love me.

I know it’s a lie
everything you’re saying,
I am in your life
only a sense of deep regret and guilt.
I know it is for pity
that you lie instead of killing me;
I know, and yet
without that lie I can’t live.

Just last night I could confirm
that not even the door of this home you respect;
I saw with my own eyes the kisses he gave you
and I heard you both laughing mocking me.
Humbly, however, you see,
I ask you: Do you still want me?
and closing my eyes and hear that you swear
that you never cheated on me, that you will not forget me.
