"Lo Imprescindible (English translation)" as written by Lester A Mendez and Shakira Mebarak....
The Essential Thing

Stay, baby, stay, baby
Never leave again
Stay, baby, stay, baby
Never leave again

A machine
Designed to think of you
That is what I am
What I always was

You know this cruel wait is killing me
Resignation is a desire without skin
Everyday something cries inside of me
There's no logical way to build my life without you

And although I make myself appear invincible
What is fatal, what is essential
Is that you come back to me, come back to me, come back
The pain is suffocating
And what's important now
Is that you come back to me, come back to me, come back
Don't torture me like this

A machine
Of living without peace
That is what I am
Since you've been gone

You say there's no sense in reacting like this
You've made your choice
That I should live and let live

And although I make myself appear invincible
What is fatal, what is essential
Is that you come back to me, come back to me, come back
The pain is suffocating
And what's important now
Is that you come back to me, come back to me, come back
Don't torture me like this

Stay, baby, stay, baby
Never leave again
Stay, baby, stay, baby
Never leave again

And although I make myself appear invincible
What is fatal, what is essential
Is that you come back to me, come back to me, come back
The pain is suffocating
And what's important now
Is that you come back to me, come back to me, come back
Don't torture me like this

    General CommentWhy does she have to be so hot even when she is talking about pain and suffering? Why would anyone ever hurt her???

    I do love this song... the beat turns me on and the words are nice too.

    General Commentshe is a mixture of female strength and latin american summissiveness. being strong and still wanting to take care of her man no matter what. that is so hot, that she ignores the notion that you have to be one or the other. and that in fact you can be both.
