"Volver" as written by Yasmil Marrufo and Hector Montaner Reglero....
Yo adivino el parpadeo
De las luces que a lo lejos,
Van marcando mi retorno.
Son las mismas que alumbraron,
Con sus pálidos reflejos,
Hondas horas de dolor.
Y aunque no quise el regreso,
Siempre se vuelve al primer amor.
La quieta calle donde el eco dijo
"Tuya es su vida, tuyo es su querer",
Bajo el burlón mirar de las estrellas
Que con indiferencia hoy me ven volver.

Volver,
Con la frente marchita,
Las nieves del tiempo
Platearon mi sien.
Sentir, que es un soplo la vida,
Que veinte años no es nada,
Que febril la mirada
Errante en las sombras
Te busca y te nombra.
Vivir,
Con el alma aferrada
A un dulce recuerdo,
Que lloro otra vez.

Tengo miedo del encuentro
Con el pasado que vuelve
A enfrentarse con mi vida.
Tengo miedo de las noches
Que, pobladas de recuerdos,
Encadenan mi soñar.
Pero el viajero que huye,
Tarde o temprano detiene su andar.
Y aunque el olvido que todo lo destruye,
Haya matado mi vieja ilusión,
Guarda escondida una esperanza humilde,
Que es toda la fortuna de mi corazón.

    General Comment Traté traducir esa canta muy bella, pero fracasé de manera lamentable.

    I guess the flickering
    Of the lights from far away
    Go marking my return

    Are they the same ones that lit
    With your pale reflection
    Hours of painful waves

    And although I didn’t
    Want to love the return
    I always come back
    To the first love

    The old street
    Where the echo said
    Your life is yours
    Your desire is yours

    Under the scornful look
    Of the stars
    With such indifference
    They see my return today

    To return…
    With the withered façade
    The snows of time
    Cover my temple

    To feel…
    What is a breath of life
    That twenty years is nothing
    That the hectic view
    Wandering in the shadows
    That searches for and names you

    To live…
    With the covered(?) soul
    A sweet memory
    That has not returned

    I’m afraid of finding
    the past that returns
    To cope with my life

    I’m afraid of the nights
    That thick memories
    Chain my dream

    Yet the traveler who escapes
    Late or early
    Stops his walk

    But the obscurity
    That destroys all
    Has killed
    My old illusion

    Which is hidden
    The meek hope
    Is all the fortune
    In my heart

    To return…
    With the withered façade
    The snows of time
    Cover my temple

    To feel…
    What is a breath of life
    That twenty years is nothing
    That the hectic view
    Wandering in the shadows
    That searches for and names you

    To live…
    With the covered(?) soul
    A sweet memory
    That has not returned
