"La Pared" as written by Lester A Mendez and Shakira Mebarak....
Eres como una predicción de las buenas
Eres como una dosis alta en las venas

Y el deseo gira en espiral
Porque mi amor por ti es total
Y es para siempre

Después de ti la pared
No me faltes nunca
Debajo el asfalto
Y más abajo estaría yo

Después de ti la pares
No me faltes nunca
Debajo el asfalto
Y más abajo estaría yo
Sin ti

Eres la enfermedad y el enfermero
Y ya me has convertido
En tu perro faldero
Sabes que sin ti
Ya yo no soy
Sabes que a donde vayas voy

Naturalmente
Después de ti la pared
No me faltes nunca
Debajo el asfalto
Y más abajo estaría yo

Después de ti la pares
No me faltes nunca
Debajo el asfalto
Y más abajo estaría yo
Sin ti

    My Interpretationhi all..i was searching some lyrics online and i came upon this page so it looks kinda late to reply but hope this helps..

    despues (something) la pared - is a spanish expression to say that after this something/someone everything is lost or there is nothing else left
    u can think of it in english close to "having your back against the wall"

    so she says after him, if he'd leave her, she'd having nothing else and she will be lower than the asphalt (die)

    hope that was helpful guys :)

    General CommentThis song is awesome. I love the acoustic version as well as the original. This song (in English) is obviously about a person who loves someone else so much that they never want to be without them. This song is their way of saying: "I love you, and I don't want to ever let you go."

    General Commenti've never quite been able to understand exactly what she means by "la pared".. does it mean like when the guy leaves her theres like a wall she can't climb over? like shes stuck in her heartbreak?
    because she can't get over him.. and once she does that wall will be broken down and she can keep moving on?

    i also think it might mean after the guy leaves she builds wall around her and shuts herself from the world.. well i guess both meanings are similar.. what are ur guys opinions?

    General Commenti really don't understand the chorus...

    despues de ti la pared - at first i thought this meant that the guy is standing in front of a wall, but that just seems random and meaningless... and the idea that luis927 gave was something i hadn't thought about, but in the other parts of the song, she's talking about how dedicated and in love she is, and it doesnt seem like it's really about the guy leaving her.

    no me faltes nunca - this part makes sense: don't ever be away from me/i want you with me always

    debajo el asfalto y mas abajo estaria yo: what?? is she talking about being in a basement underground? or being dead and buried? and who/what is under the asphalt? or is it supposed to go with "no me faltes nunca" like stay with me here underground....
    or maybe she's just describing where the guy is standing- in front of a wall, on the asphalt (the asphalt is under him), and that if he weren't there, she would be under the asphalt for being so sad or whatever


    well anyway, i really like this song..
    sabes que sin ti ya yo no soy, sabes que adonde vayas voy, naturalmente!!!!! ahhh haha it gives me goosebumps because it's so true!

    General CommentThe chorus to me means that without him she'd die. Commit suicide, by perhaps flinging herself against a wall? &that is why she says she'd be beneath the asphalt.

    General Commentshe can not live without him, she wishes to be by his side for ever.

    My InterpretationWhat she means by "after you there's a wall", is her saying that after him there is nothing else in her life that matters to her. She can"t see any kind of life without him.
