"Me Gustas Cuando Callas" as written by Didi Gutman, Aaron Johnston, Jesse Yusef Murphy, Sabina Sciubba, Ricardo Neftali Reyes Basoalto, Peter Rende and Yusuke Yamamoto....
Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente,
Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente,
Y me oyes desde lejos, y mi voz no te toca.
Parece que los ojos se te hubieran volado

Y parece que un beso te cerrara la boca.
Y parece que un beso te cerrara la boca.

Como todas las cosas están llenas de mi alma
Como todas las cosas están llenas de mi alma
Emerges de las cosas, llena del alma mía.
Mariposa de sueño, te pareces a mi alma,

Y te pareces a la palabra melancolía.
Y te pareces a la palabra melancolía.

Ooohh

Me gustas cuando callas y estás como distante.
Me gustas cuando callas y estás como distante.
Y estás como quejándote, mariposa en arrullo.
Y me oyes desde lejos, y mi voz no te alcanza:

Déjame que me calle con el silencio tuyo.

Ooohh

Déjame que te hable también con tu silencio
Déjame que te hable también con tu silencio
Claro como una lámpara, simple como un anillo.
Eres como la noche, callada y constelada.

Tu silencio es de estrella, tan lejano y sencillo.
Tu silencio es de estrella, tan lejano y sencillo.

Ooohh

Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente.
Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente.
Distante y dolorosa como si hubieras muerto.
Una palabra entonces, una sonrisa bastan.

Y estoy alegre, alegre de que no sea cierto.
Y estoy alegre, alegre de que no sea cierto

    General CommentI read this last year in Spanish 4 AP...it was originally a poem by Pablo Neruda by the same title. It's about how when he's with this girl silence between them is so comfortable because they're comfortable with each other. Anyway, I thought it was really cool that Brazilian Girls did a song with the same words.

    General CommentRough translation:

    I like you when you're silent because you're like away
    and you hear me from far away, and my voice doesn't touch you
    It looks like your eyes had flown away
    and it looks like a kiss will shut your mouth

    Like everything is full of my soul
    you rise from things, full of my own soul
    dream butterfly, you look like my soul
    and you look like the word "melancholy"

    I like you when you're silent and you're like distant.
    and you are like complaining, butterfly in a lullaby
    and you hear me from far away, and my voice doesn't reach you
    let me be silent with your silence

    Let me talk to you too with your silence
    bright as a lamp, simple as a ring.
    you're like night, silent and constellated.
    Your silence is from a star, so distant and simple.

    I like you when you're silent because you're like away
    Distant and painful just as if you had died.
    A word then, a smile is enough.
    And I'm happy, happy that it isn't true.

    General CommentI always had a darker take on Neruda's poem, in addition to the silent language between the couple, I read into it the almost unconscious act of imagining your loved one dead for a brief period of time. I don't mean to be grim, but loving someone is also acknowledging the mortality of the relationship or the people involved.
