"La Pared (English translation)" as written by Lester A Mendez and Shakira Mebarak....
The Wall

You're like a good weather forecast
You're like a straight shot to the vein

And lust spins in a spiral
Because my love for you is total
And it's forever

After you, the wall
Don't ever let me be without you
Beneath the asphalt
And even deeper down I'd be
After you, the wall
Don't ever let me be without you
Beneath the asphalt
And even deeper down I'd be
Without you

You're my sickness and my nurse
And you've already turned me
Into your faithful dog

You know that without you
I no longer am
You know wherever you go, I go
Naturally

After you, the wall
Don't ever let me be without you
Beneath the asphalt
And even deeper down I'd be
After you, the wall
Don't ever let me be without you
Beneath the asphalt
And even deeper down I'd be
Without you

After you, the wall
Don't ever let me be without you
Beneath the asphalt
And even deeper down I'd be
After you, the wall
Don't ever let me be without you
Beneath the asphalt
And even deeper down I'd be
Without you
Without you

    General Commentanyone else weirded out by the reference to intervenous drug use? Shakira doesn't strike me as knowing what a "straight shot tothe vein" is like.

    General Commentjust a metaphor to say the pain would be incredible or perhaps unlike anything she has ever known.
