Suerte que en el sur hayas nacido
Y que burlemos las distancias
Suerte que es haberte conocido
Y por ti amar tierras extrañas

Yo puedo escalar los Andes solo
Por ir a contar tus lunares
Contigo celebro y sufro todo
Mis alegrías y mis males

Le-ro-lo-le-lo-le
Le-ro-lo-le-lo-le
Sabes que estoy a tus pies

Contigo, mi vida
Quiero vivir la vida
Y lo que me queda de vida
Quiero vivir contigo

Contigo, mi vida
Quiero vivir la vida
Y lo que me queda de vida
Quiero vivir contigo

Suerte que es tener labios sinceros
Para besarte con más ganas
Suerte que mis pechos sean pequeños
Y nos los confundas con montañas

Suerte que heredé las piernas firmes
Para correr si un día hace falta
Y estos dos ojos que me dicen
Que han de llorar cuando te vayas

Le-ro-lo-le-lo-le
Le-ro-lo-le-lo-le
Sabes que estoy a tus pies

Contigo, mi vida
Quiero vivir la vida
Y lo que me queda de vida
Quiero vivir contigo

Contigo, mi vida
Quiero vivir la vida
Y lo que me queda de vida
Quiero vivir contigo

Le-ro-lo-le-lo-le
Le-ro-lo-le-lo-le
Sabes que estoy a tus pies

Le-ro-lo-le-lo-le-lo-lo
Y la felicidad
Tiene tu
Nombre y tu piel

Contigo, mi vida
Quiero vivir la vida
Y lo que me queda de vida
Quiero vivir contigo

Ya sabes mi vida
Estoy hasta el cuello por ti
Si sientes algo así
Quiero que te quedes junto a mí

Contigo, mi vida
Quiero vivir la vida
Y lo que me queda de vida
Quiero vivir contigo

Ya sabes mi vida
Estoy hasta el cuello por ti
Si sientes algo así
Quiero que te quedes junto a mí

    This song is also much better in spanish. I cant bring myself to listen to the english version of it :(

    Shakira is a very talented woman, but sounds much MUCh better in her native language

    I love the Spanish and English version. They both convey the same feeling and message but in two different ways! I think the lyrics are so beautiful. I love how she is talking about being inlove with someone from another country, that lives far away. Saying that distance doesn't matter as long as u really trully love that person :) I know exactly how she feels. I can definately relate so much to this song...
