"Que me Quedes Tu" as written by Luis Ochoa and Shakira Isabel Mebarak....
Que se arruinen los canales de noticias
Con lo mucho que odio la televisión
Que se vuelvan anticuadas las sonrisas
Que se extingan todas las puestas de sol
Que se supriman las doctrinas y deberes
Que se terminen las películas de acción
Que se destruyan en el mundo los placeres
Y que se escriba hoy una ultima canción

Pero que me quedes tú
Que me quede tu abrazo
Y el beso que inventas cada día
Y que me quede aquí
Después del ocaso
Para siempre tu melancolía
Porque yo, yo si, si
Que dependo de ti
Que si me quedas tú
Me queda la vida

Que desaparezcan todos los vecinos
Que se coman las sobras de mi inocencia
Que se vayan uno a uno los amigos
Que acribillen mi pedazo de conciencia
Que se consuman las palabras en los labios
Que contaminen todo el agua del planeta
O que renuncien los filántropos y sabios
Y que se muera hoy hasta el ultimo poeta

Pero que me quedes tú
Que me quede tu abrazo
Y el beso que inventas cada día
Y que me quede aquí
Después del ocaso
Para siempre tu melancolía
Porque yo, yo si, si
Que dependo de ti
Que si me quedas tú
Me queda la vida

    General Commentthis is a cute song. i really liked it. shes practically saying that, to hell with the violence and worries, to television, etc... but , that he stays with her because she needs him and depends on him. hes her life.

    My OpinionThis song is so great. She is saying that every improtant thing in life to her could just disappear, or stop. All that she needs is him. his hugs and his kisses that he invents everyday. Such a great love song.

    General CommentI thought some might wnat an english translation... :)


    Let the news station channels fall to ruins,
    Since I don't like television anyway.
    Let smiles become ancient relics,
    And let all the rays of sunlight be extinguished.

    Let doctrines and obligations be abolished,
    Let all action movies come to an end,
    Let pleasures in the world be destroyed,
    And let today, a last song be written.

    But as long as I have you, as long as I have your hug
    And the kiss you invent every day,
    And let me keep here after the sunset
    Forever your melancholy.

    Because I (I) do (do) depend on you
    And if I still have you,
    I still have life left.

    Let all neighbours disappear
    And let them eat the leftovers of my innocence.
    Let friends leave one by one
    And let them kill my piece of conscience.

    Let words be consumed on the lips,
    Let them contaminate all the water on the planet,
    Or let all philanthropists and wise men resign,
    And let the last poet die today.

    But as long as I have you, as long as I have your hug
    And the kiss you invent every day,
    And let me keep here after the sunset
    Forever your melancholy.


    Because I (I) do (do) depend on you
    And if I still have you,
    I still have life left.

    But as long as I have you, as long as I have your hug
    And the kiss you invent every day,
    And let me keep here after the sunset
    Forever your melancholy.

    Because I (I) do (do) depend on you
    And if I still have you,
    I still have life left.

    General CommentThis song is very very deep. Shakira is basically saying how everything in the world can go to shit, but the one thing she doesn't want to lose is her lover.
    I find this song to be so romantic, yet with all the imagery of loss, death, and destruction it makes for such an interesting song. In a way I feel as though there is a definite contrast between the material and subject matter in this song. On one end you have a lovely song with a lovely melody, but the lyrics are just so dark. I love it!
