"Fantasma" as written by Alexis Puentes and Nelly Kim Furtado....
I don't speak fluent Spanish so the accents are probably off.



Si alguien me ve por la nariz de la ventana
No se asusten que no hare caso a las miradas
Perdoname si te recuerdo algun fantasmas
Sin querer ser por la fiereza de mi ganas

(Bridge)
Es como un amor perdido
Que ahora busco en las ventanas
Paso el tiempo de recorrido y hoy
Ya no veo el sol ni escucho el viento
Son iguales todos mis momentos, me destruye el mar
Y me saldra el amor

(Chorus)
Y yo voy estar aqui, aqui, siempre aqui hasta el fin
Nunca me iré, nunca me iré lejos de ti
Mi amor, yo seguiré buscando tu calor
Seré tu fantasma

Me esconderé en aquél libro que leiste
Ahi estare en lo que pienses que aprendiste
La vida es más de lo cualquier texto dice
Ya lo sabras si un dia te encuentres solo y triste

(Bridge)
Es como un amor perdido
Que ahora busco en las ventanas
Paso el tiempo de recorrido y hoy
Ya no veo el sol ni escucho el viento
Son iguales todos mis momentos me destruye el mar
Y me saldra el amor

(Chorus)
Y yo voy estar aqui, aqui, siempre aqui hasta el fin
Nunca me iré, nunca me iré lejos de ti
Mi amor, yo seguiré buscando tu calor
Seré tu fantasma
Voy estar aqui, aqui, siempre aqui hasta el fin
Nunca me iré lejos de ti
Mi amor, yo seguiré buscando tu calor
Seré tu fantasma

Fantasma, fantasma

Ya no veo el sol ni escucho el viento (ya no veo el sol)
Son iguales todos mis momentos (son iguales todos)
Me destruye el mar y me saldrá el amor (mis momentos)

(Chorus)

Y yo voy estar aqui, aqui, siempre aqui hasta el fin
Nunca me iré, nunca me iré lejos de ti
Mi amor, yo seguiré buscando tu calor (yo seguiré, yo seguiré, yo seguiré)
Seré tu fantasma
Voy estar aqui, aqui, siempre aqui hasta el fin (yo soy, yo soy, yo soy, tu fantasma)
Nunca me iré lejos de ti
Mi amor, yo seguiré buscando tu calor
Seré tu fantasma

    My InterpretationWell there were some mistakes with the accents, but overall it is alright I suppose. I'll post the edited version in a minute. Here is a translation of the song for those who don't know Spanish: (Note that I made some changes that made no sense in English)

    If someone sees me through the window
    Don't be scared for I will not heed to the looks
    Forgive me if I remind you of a ghost
    Not wanting to be at the fierceness of my desire

    It's like a lost love
    That I now search for in the windows
    Time passed and traveled and today
    I no longer see the sun or hear the wind
    All my moments are the same
    The sea destroys me
    And I will love
    And I

    I'll be here, here, always here
    Until the end
    I'll never leave, never will I leave far from you
    My love, I'll continue searching for your warmth
    I'll be your ghost

    I'll hide in that book you've read
    I'll be there as you think of what you've learned
    Life is more than what any text says
    You'll know if one day you find yourself alone and sad

    It's like a lost love
    That I now search in the windows
    Time passed and traveled and today
    I no longer see the sun or hear the wind
    All my moments are the same
    The sea destroys me
    And I will love
    And I

    I'll be here, here, always here
    Until the end
    I'll never leave, never will I leave far from you
    My love, I'll continue searching for your warmth
    I'll be your ghost

    I'll be here, here, always here
    Until the end
    I'll never leave, never will I leave far from you
    My love, I'll continue searching for your warmth
    I'll be your ghost

    Ghost, Ghost

    I no longer see the sun or hear the wind (I no longer see the sun)
    All my moments are the same (They're all the same)
    The sea destroys me
    And I will love (My moments)

    I'll be here, here, always here
    Until the end
    I'll never leave, never will I leave far from you
    My love, I'll continue searching for your warmth (I'll continue, I'll continue, I'll continue)
    I'll be your ghost

    I'll be here, here, always here (I am, I am, I am, your ghost)
    Until the end
    I'll never leave, never will I leave far from you
    My love, I'll continue searching for your warmth
    I'll be your ghost


    I wanted to put 'Phantom' but 'Ghost' would be better, or however you want to use it. The song is about Nelly (Nelly is singing so it's her I'll say) telling someone she loves that she has remained untouched by changes (Like time) and so has her love. It may even be hinting that she might be deceased and has chosen to follow her loved one forever. She also says that she can no longer see the sun or hear the wind or feel the warmth of her loved one; as a ghost she is limited to what she can do, and says that she will always be with her loved one as a ghost. *I think she might be lost and searching for her loved one....anyone?*

    It sounds sad, for someone to love and linger near the one that they loved when they were once alive. It just comes to show that sometimes it's love that has no bounds, even in death.
