"Tabaco y Channel" as written by and Jorge Villamizar....
Un olor a tabaco y Chanel
Me recuerda el olor de su piel
Una mezcla de miel y café
Me recuerda el sabor de sus besos
El color del final de la noche
Me pregunta dónde fui a parar, donde estás
Que esto sólo se vive una vez
Dónde fuiste a parar, dónde estás

Un olor a tabaco y Chanel
Y una mezcla de miel y café
Me preguntan por ella (ella)
Me preguntan por ella
Me preguntan también las estrellas
Me reclaman que vuelva por ella
Ay que vuelva por ella (ella)
Ay que vuelva por ella

No se olvida, no se va
No se olvida, no se va
No se olvida nada
No se va, no se olvida
No se va, no se olvida
No se va, no se olvida nada

Una rosa que no floreció
Pero que el tiempo no la marchita
Una flor prometida una amor
Que no fue, pero que sigue viva
Y otra vez
El color del final, del final de la noche
Me pregunta donde fui a parar
Que esto sólo se vive una vez
Donde fuiste a parar, donde estás

Un olor a tabaco y Chanel
Una mezcla de miel y café
Me preguntan por ella (ella)
Me preguntan por ella
Me preguntan también las estrellas
Me reclaman que vuelva por ella
Ay que vuelva por ella (ella), Ay que vuelva por ella

Pero fueron las mismas estrellas
Que un día marcaron mis manos
Y apartaron la flor, esa flor, de mi vida, de mi vida

Un olor a tabaco y Chanel
Una mezcla de miel y café
Me preguntan por ella (ella)
Me preguntan por ella
Me preguntan también las estrellas
Me reclaman que vuelva por ella
Ay que vuelva por ella (ella)
Ay que vuelva por ella

No se va, no se olvida
No se va, no se olvida
No se va, no se olvida nada
No se va, no se olvida
No se va, no se olvida
No se va, no se olvida nada

    General CommentA smell of tabaco and Chanel
    reminds me of the smell of her skin
    a mixture of honey and coffe
    reminds me of the taste of her kisses
    the color of de end of the night
    asks me where I went to stop, where you are
    and that you just live once
    where did you go to stop, where are you?

    chorus:
    A smell of tabaco and Chanel
    a mixture of honey and coffe
    they ask me for her... heeeeeeer
    they ask me for heeeeeeer
    also the stars aks me
    they claim that it has to come back for her
    it has to come back for her
    it has to come back for her

    she's not leaving, she won't forget
    she's not leaving, she won't forget
    she's not leaving, she won't forget, nothing, nothing

    A rose that didn't grow
    but the time will not let her dy
    a promised flower, a love that was not there
    but did go on living
    and another time the color of the end
    of the end of the night
    asks me where I went to stop, where you are
    and that you just live once
    where did you go to stop, where are you?

    chorus

    But it were the same stars that a day
    mark my hands
    and took this flower, this flower of my life away

    chorus

    General CommentI hope this translation most accurately captures the meaning of the song.

    TABACO Y CHANEL by Bacilos

    A smell of tobacco and Chanel
    brings to mind the scent of her skin,
    and a mixture of honey and coffee
    reminds me of the taste of her kisses.

    The color of the end of the night
    asks me where I ended up (Where are you?)
    Oh you can live those moments only once.
    Where did you ever you end up? Where are you?

    ---Chorus---
    A smell of tobacco and Chanel
    and a mixture of honey and coffee
    ask me for her (her)
    they ask me for her.

    The stars also ask me the same,
    they demand that I go back for her
    oh that I go back to her (her)
    oh that I go back for her.
    -----------------

    A rose that never blossomed
    but also never withered in time,
    a flower promised, a love that never was,
    but somehow continues to live.

    and one more time,
    the color of the end of the end of the night
    asks me where I ended up
    Oh you can live these moments only once.
    Where did you ever end up? Where are you?

    ---Chorus---

    But they were the same stars
    that, one day, marked my hands
    and they took the flower,
    that flower of my life,
    out of my life.

    ---Chorus---

    she's never gone,
    she's never forgotten (x3)
    na na na na

    she's never gone,
    she's never forgotten (x3)
    na na na na

    General CommentThis is a song dedicated to his wife who passed away, or someone who left to never come back.

    >Un olor a tabaco y channel,
    >me recuerda el olor de su piel
    >y una mezcla de miel y cafe,
    >me recuerda el sabor de sus besos

    In this first verse he tells how her skin smelled like tobacco and chanel, the makeup; and her kisses tasted like coffee, yet they were sweet.

    >el color de el final de la noche,
    >me pregunta donde fui a parar; donde estas

    When the morning arrives he wonders where she is now? and where is he standed?

    >que esto solo se vive una vez,
    >donde fuiste a parar donde estas.

    Because marriage with one you love is only (supposed to be) lived once


    Coro:
    >Un olor a tabaco y channel,
    >y una mezcla de miel y cafe,
    >me preguntan por ella, (ella)
    >me preguntan por ella.

    Her memories still make him wonder where she is? They still remind him a lot of her.

    >me preguntan también las estrellas,
    >me reclaman que vuelva por ella,
    >hay que vuelva por ella, ella.
    >hay que vuelva por ella.

    Not only the morning, but also the night (the stars) remind him about her.
    Seems that she passed away in the night, because the song Caraluna is also about her.

    >No se va no se olvida,
    >no se va no se olvida,
    >no se va no se olvida, nada, nada,

    He won't forget nothing about her.

    >Una rosa que no floreció,
    >pero que el tiempo no la marchita,

    A rose that didn't bloom but is still preserved; what i get from here is that she passed away so young, and so perfect that she didn't had the time to bloom, and the memory of her perfection is still present, still young.

    >una flor prometida un amor que no fué,
    >pero que sigue viva

    The promised flower that didn't happen but still lives. Same as above, she is still remembered with love and pain.

    >y otra vez el color del final,
    >del final de la noche,
    >me pregunta donde fui a parar,
    >que esto solo se vive una vez,
    >donde fuiste a parar donde estas.
    (again, the morning reminds him about her)


    >Pero fueron las mismas estrellas que un dia,
    >marcaron mis manos, y apartaron la flor
    >esa flor de mi vida, de mi vida.

    Strongest part of the song, the stars (destiny, the unknown, mistery, i might guess) took her away from him, leaving a scar on him forever.
