mi vida, lucerito sin vela
mi sangre de la herida
no me hagas sufrir más
mi vida, bala perdida
por la gran vía, charquito de arrabal
no quiero que te vayas
no quiero que te alejes cada día más y más
mi vida, lucerito sin vela
(aquí no pegamos los ojos)
mi vida, charquito d'agua turbia
burbuja de jabón
mi último refugio, mi última ilusión
no quiero que te vayas cada día más y más
mi vida, lucerito sin vela
mi sangre de la herida
no me hagas sufrir más
(aquí no pegamos los ojos, aquí no pegamos los ojos)
mi vida

    My InterpretationThe phrase 'mi vida' literally means 'my life', but it's also a very common term of endearment, something like 'my darling'. I think this song is addressed to a lover; it's about being trapped in a relationship that you realise is fruitless but can't contemplate ending - so he's pleading with her 'no me hagas sufrir mas' (don't make me suffer any more), but at the same time he doesn't want her to leave, whether physically or emotionally: 'no quiero que te alejes cada dia mas y mas' (I don't want you to 'put distance between us' (lit.) more and more every day). She is both 'mi ultimo refugio' and 'mi ultimo ilusion' (my final refuge, my final illusion). Very depressing, very human - yet beautiful, with phrases like 'lucerito sin vela, mi sangre de la herida'. Not to mention, it's one of the most engrossing bass grooves I've heard.
