"Tu" as written by Dillon O'brian and Shakira Isabel Mebarak....
Te regalo mi cintura
Y mis labios para cuando quieras besar
Te regalo mi locura
Y las pocas neuronas que quedan ya

Mis zapatos desteñidos
El diario en el que escribo
Te doy hasta mi suspiro
Pero no te vayas mas

Porque eres tu mi sol
La fe con que vivo
La potencia de mi voz
Los pies con que camino
Eres tu amor
Mis ganas de reír
El adiós que no sabre decir
Porque nunca podre vivir sin ti

Si algún día decidieras
Alejarte nuevamente de aquí
Cerraría cada puerta
Para que nunca pudieras salir

Te regalo mis silencios
Te regalo mi nariz
Yo te doy hasta mis huesos
Pero quédate aquí

Porque eres tu mi sol
La fe con que vivo
La potencia de mi voy
Los pies con que camino
Eres tu amor
Mis ganas de reír
El adiós que no sabre decir
Porque nunca podre vivir sin ti

    General CommentTu, is such a gorgeous song, it touches me so deeply. Its amazing how us women just completely give everything of us when we are in love. This is what Shakira is saying in this song. She wants to let him know how much meaning he has for her, how much impact he has on her life, to the point that she is willing to give him everything in her power in order for him to stay...
    Te regalo mi cintura
    (I'll give you my waist)
    y mis labios para cuando quieras besar
    te regalo mi locura
    (and my lips just so you can kiss them whenever you want,, Ill give you my insanity)
    y las pocas neuronas que quedan ya
    (and the last neurons I have left)
    I love that part.. It just lets him know that she nows its insane all he means to her, but she just cannot control it.. I recommend to hear the Unplugged version it gives it such a nice touch..

    General CommentI agree. The umplugged version is even better.
    I love the way Shakira sings as the violin plays at the end of the song. For me it´s the sound of pain when heart is breaking. The way you feel when you lose the person you love.

    General CommentI love this song. On my top 3 Shakira songs. I love the meaning. When I saw her in concert Jan. 2002 in Chicago, she played it and I was crying like a baby. I think I cry most of the times I listen to this song. Jaja : )

    General CommentI absolutely love this song! it's all about loving someone so much you would give them anything, even though they've hurt you

    I give you my waist,
    And my lips when you want a kiss,
    I give you my crazyness,
    And the few neurons left behind.


    My faded shoes,
    The diary in which I write,
    I give you my suspicions,
    But don't leave again.

    Because you're my sun,
    The faith with which I live,
    The potencial of my voice,
    The feet with which I walk,
    You're my love,
    You make me laugh,
    The goodbye that I will not say,
    Because I could never live without you.

    If some day you decide,
    To walk away from here,
    I will close every door,
    So that you won't be able to leave.

    I give you my silences,
    I give you my nose,
    I give you my bones,
    Just stay here.

    Because you're my sun,
    The fatih with which I live,
    The potencial of my voice,
    The feet with which I walk.
    You're my love,
    You make me love,
    The goodbye I will not say,
    Because I could never live without you

    Its quite a rough translation, so please forgive me if I made some silly mistakes. But I think thats the nub and gist of it

    General CommentThat's a pretty close translation. I'm just going to change a few things.

    I give you my waist,
    And my lips for when you want to kiss,
    I give you my madness,
    And the few neurons i have left.


    My faded shoes,
    The diary in which I write,
    I give you myself, even my sighs,
    But don't leave again.

    Because you're my sun,
    The faith with which I live,
    The power of my voice,
    The feet with which I walk.
    You are my love,
    My desire to laugh,
    The goodbye that I will not know how to say,
    Because I could never live without you.

    If some day you decide,
    To walk away from here again,
    I will close every door,
    So that you will never be able to leave.

    I give you my silences,
    I give you my nose,
    I give you myself, even my bones,
    Just stay here.

    Because you're my sun,
    The fatih with which I live,
    The power of my voice,
    The feet with which I walk.
    You are my love,
    My desire to laugh,
    The goodbye that I will not know how to say,
    Because I could never live without you.
