"Como La Flor" as written by A.b. Quintanilla and Pete Astudiillo....
Yo sé que tienes un nuevo amor
Sin embargo, te deseo lo mejor
Si en mí, no encontraste felicidad
Tal vez, alguien más te la dará

Como la flor (como la flor)
Con tanto amor (con tanto amor)
Me diste tú, (me diste tú)
Se marchitó (se marchitó)
Me marcho hoy (me marcho hoy)
Yo sé perder (yo sé perder)

Pero, ay, cómo me duele
Ay, cómo me duele

Si vieras cómo duele perder tu amor
Con tu adiós, te llevas mi corazón
No sé si pueda volver a amar
Porque te dí todo el amor que pude dar

Como la flor (como la flor)
Con tanto amor (con tanto amor)
Me diste tú,
Se marchitó
Me marcho hoy
Yo sé perder

Pero, ay, como me duele
Ay, como me duele

Como la flor (como la flor)
Con tanto amor (con tanto amor)
Me diste tú,
Se marchitó
Me marcho hoy
Yo sé perder

Pero, ay, como me duele
Ay, como me duele
Ay, como me duele

    General Commentwhy doesn't anybody comment on her spanish songs? you can look at other sites for the english translations if that's the problem...anyway, this song is about love...(duh)...it's about how love should last if it was ever true. it's about a girl seeing a former love w/ his new love. i know exactly how that feels...and i didn't realize it until now. i'm stupid! anyway, yeah. you ppl should look at selena's spanish songs more often.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. One of my Selena favorites. I would love to talk to A.B. and Pete one day and talk about these songs. They were written so skillfully.

    *I'm not totally sure about the translation for "marchitó" because I don't know that conjugation, but it shouldn't be too far off.

    General CommentCorrection: I did get the marchitó line wrong as well as the one after that. It really means "He left, I leave today"

    General CommentSelena's voice is so pure and beautiful! She was one of the greatest artists in history.
    This is one of my favorite songs by her. It's so pretty!
