"Manto estelar" as written by Alfonso Pichardo/zenteno Lechuga and Jorge Soto Montemayor....
Si mañana me perdiera en un inmenso mar
Y la noche me cubriera con su manto estelar

¿A donde volaría mi ultima oración
El ultimo latido de mi azul corazón?

No seria a ti, no seria a ti
Esta vez ya no seria a ti
No supiste dar lo que yo te di
No supiste ver lo que hay en mi

No seria a ti, no seria a ti
Esta vez ya no seria así
Si tan solo un fragmento pudiera conservar
Una final memoria para recordar

¿A quien me llevaría a mi destino astral?
Hermosa compañía para la eternidad

No seria a ti, no seria a ti
Esta vez ya no seria así
Si tan solo un fragmento pudiera conservar
Una final memoria para recordar

No seria a ti, no seria a ti
Esta vez ya no seria así

No, no seria a ti
Ya no

Si la noche me cubriera con su manto estelar
Si tan solo un fragmento pudiera conservar

    General CommentWOWOW one of my favorite spanish songs, it has a lot of meaning, this song talks about a guy that is tired of waiting for this girl maybe, or just tired of her and he says that if he had to choose someone to live, or to going on with, he won't choose her no more...
    Long before this song talked about my feelings for a girl =P

    General CommentIt´s about a guy who feels that his love isn´t returned, and so he is tired, and somehow knows that she´s not the one he really loves. This song is just perfect, i LOVE it

    General CommentIt's very DEPECHE MODE likes. If he dies, on his last moments say that will not think of her because she don't deserved. It's not traditionally love. In other hand, can point to 2 gods, one who cares for him and the other one doesnt. (His last prayer before dies) Sorry for my english, Im from Mexico.

    General CommentThis song came to me at a time when I was going through exactly what he (the author) is talking about. It's a very special song to me - it's about a person who gives someone else they love everything they can; they give their best and yet that is not returned ("No supiste dar lo que yo te di" - You did not know to give what I gave you). The other person doesn't even truly understand how valuable this person is ("No supiste ver lo que hay en mi" - You didn't know to see who I really am). Therefore this person realized that he/she wasn't really wanted, and tells the other person that, if they were to die, their last prayer would not be to them, and if they could take anything from this world into the next, it would not be them (or their image for that matter).

    When I first heard this song I was going through a very bad relationship, one sided most of the time, because I loved her and tried to please her but it was never enough, and I was never enough. And it hurt so much, to know that no matter how hard I tried it was worth nothing to her. In the end she left me (!!!) and I finally realized that from the beginning it wasn't worth it, and this song really touched me when I heard it because it was almost like somebody took what I'd gone through and written the ending to it. Even today when I hear it, it makes me reflect on all the pain we people go through to find that one true love, and how many bad experiences we have to go through to (hopefully) find it.

    General CommentI remember translating this song to my then girlfriend now wife while poolside at my old home. We married and 16 years later she developed an alcohol dependency which eventually led to infidelity. She wants to reconcile now but sadly I'm now going to Send her this song to remind her she didn't know what to see in me and if I had to do it all over again it wouldn't be with her. Beautiful sad song.
