"Dia de Enero" as written by and Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll....
Te conocí un día de enero
Con la luna en mi nariz
Y como vi que eras sincero
En tus ojos me perdí

Que torpe distracción
Y que dulce sensación

Y ahora que andamos por el mundo
Como eneas y benitin
Ya te encontré varios rasguños
Que te hicieron por ahí

Pero mi loco amor
Es tu mejor doctor

Voy a curarte el alma en duelo
Voy a dejarte como nuevo
Y todo va a pasar
Pronto verás el sol brillar

Tú más que nadie merece ser feliz

Ya vas a ver como van sanando
Poco a poco tus heridas
Ya vas a ver como va
La misma vida a decantar la sal que sobra del mar

Y aunque hayas sido un extranjero
Hasta en tu propio país
Si yo te digo ¿qué dices tu?
Tu aún dices ¿que decís?
Y lloras de emoción oyendo un bandoneón

Y aunque parezcas despistado con ese caminar pausado
Conozco la razón que hace doler tu corazón
Por eso quise hacerte esta canción

Ya vas a ver como van sanando
Poco a poco tus heridas
Ya vas a ver como va
La misma vida a decantar la sal que sobra del mar

Ya vas a ver como van sanando
Poco a poco tus heridas
Ya vas a ver como va
La misma vida a decantar la sal que sobra del mar

    General CommentThis is a cute song. It has a very deep and special meaning to Shakira cause she wrote it for her actual boyfriend, Antonio de la Rua.
    It talks about a real story where a man is discriminated in his own country, and it, obviously, makes him very sad.
    So Shakira wish is to give him forces and through loving him give him all the courage and braveness that he needs to get over this situation because in Shakira's thought, he more than anyone out there, deserves to be happy.

    Obviously Shakira is very in love with this guy. He's hot, but some people say he only hooks up with her because of her money (only a stupid gossip that we all wish isn't true).
    In her last album she wrote something for him. It is something like she being grateful to him because without him she would have never possibly done this CD. It's clear plenty of the content, if not all, is inspired in him.

    General CommentThere is no way that ANYONE in their right mind would use Shakira for her money... I would be in love with that girl if she cheated on me and beat me with a baseball bat every night... I wish someone wrote a song like this to me...

    General Commenttheres so many cute references to her boyfriend in this song.. like "si yo te digo como dices tu aun dices que decis" cause in argentina (where hes from) they actually conjugate their verbs that way (which is proper) but most other countries we don't.. i just think little things like that in the song are cute..

    last year i met a guy in january and this was my song for him.. it didnt last so i was thinking well maybe this year it'll happen again.. so i got about 10 more days. lol

    "si yo te digo "como dices tu?" aun dices "que decis?"
