"No" as written by Lester A Mendez and Shakira Mebarak....
No, no intentes disculparte
No juegues a insistir
Las excusas ya existían antes de ti
No, no me mires como antes
No hables en plural
La retórica es tu arma más letal

Voy a pedirte que no vuelvas más
Siento que me dueles todavía aquí
Adentro
Y que a tu edad sepas bien lo que es
Romperle el corazón a alguien así

No se puede vivir con tanto veneno
La esperanza que me ha dado amor
No me la dio más nadie
Te juro, no miento
No se puede vivir con tanto veneno
No se puede dedicar al alma
A acumular intentos
Pesa más la rabia que el cemento

Espero que no esperes que te espere
Después de mis 26
La paciencia se me ha ido hasta los pies
Y voy deshojando margaritas
Y mirando sin mirar
Para ver si así te irritas y te vas

Voy a pedirte que no vuelvas más
Siento que me dueles todavía aquí
Adentro
Y que a tu edad sepas bien lo que es
Romperle el corazón a alguien así

No se puede vivir con tanto veneno
La esperanza que me dio tu amor
No me la dio más nadie
Te juro, no miento
No se puede morir con tanto veneno
No se puede dedicar al alma
A acumular un intentos
Pesa más la rabia que el cemento

No se puede vivir con tanto veneno
No se puede vivir con tanto veneno
No no
No

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about letting go of all the pain & bitterness from a failed relationship. She is saying that you cannot live with so much venom inside of you and it's heavier on your soul than the weight of cement. Metaphor of course.

    It seems as if she was with this guy for a while but he wasn't moving further ahead and she felt like time was going by and she was wasting her time. She says in the song," I hope you don't expect me to wait for you past the age of 26." So, she's telling him to leave her alone because she is vulnerable and does have feelings for him but No, she's got to let him go and let go of the pain but in order for her to do this he needs to disappear from her life.


    Make sense? lol

    General CommentShe has this boyfriend she really loves and he betrayed her, she is telling him that she forgive him, but she's not coming back to him because he hurt her so much and she doesn't want to be hurt again. Veneno , poision, i think means that she will not keep that anger ( because whatever he did to her) on her heart, she forgives but doesn't forget.

    General CommentI don´t think he betrayed her. I think that he had just fear to become engagued and she was sick of waiting for him to decide and that is why she brakes the relation. When she speaks of poisson is related to te anger that she felt during the relation cause he didn´t want to get more involved with the relation and that maid their relation even more difficult.

    General CommentShakira is a pop artist whatever. But she is a amazing lyricist, especially in spanish. I don't think people understand.
