"Inevitable (english Version)" as written by Luis Ochoa and Shakira Isabel Mebarak....
To be true I must confess
Making coffee I'm a mess
Don't know anything about football.
Been unfaithful once or twice
Cannot even win at dice
As for watches, I don't use one.
To be completely honest,
No one thinks of you
Quite the way I do...
It's all the same to you now.

To be true I must confess
I never sleep at twelve or less
Never take a bath on Sundays.
Since I'm telling you so much
I cry in earnest once a month
When the weather turns to freezing.
With me nothing is easy
Only you can tell
You know me so well...
Without you everything's a bore.

Chorus:
The sky is seeing a million raindrops fall
The hours seem to crawl
And every day that passes is just the same
Just like yesterday.
I can't find anyway to forget you because
To keep on loving you
Is inevitable.


I always felt that it was true
When we talk about we two
I should be the first revealing.
Sure you know what's going on
Nothing's better since you're gone
At least I'm still breathing.
And you won't be returning
Nothing left to tell
I know you so well...
What will I ever do without you?

Chorus

I always felt that it was true
When we talk about we two
I should be the first revealing...

    General CommentYea i've never heard the English version, but this song is incomparable in Spanish so i wont even bother looking for the enligh one. The translation is surprisingly well done and still managed to rhyme even as a direct translation! Well some things are a bit different but hey, poetic license ;)

    General Commentwow... I didn't even know there was an english version... I still love the Spanish version better (no one jump down my throat! haha) the words just flow better so much, & I feel so powerful when I sing it in Spanish... when I read the english version, I felt a weakness as I was hearing it in my head, not as strong as how it is in spanish... I guess it's just b/c I'm a latina wannabe... haha

    General CommentIt was like the first song she sang in english... From there the idea of making an english album was born, it is an old song but yet it is hard to find it, well not really hard, you can find it on any P2P thing... It is a great song... I like the ENGLISH version better...

    General CommentTracey, you don't have to post in every translation of a Shakira song that the "Spanish is better". In some cases, I wouldn't know songs unless I knew roughly what it was saying in English. It is a great song either way, but I wish she'd perform it in English on her next tour... (& that she'd return to Australia)
