Si es cuestión de confesar
No sé preparar café
Y no entiendo de fútbol
Creo que alguna vez fui infiel
Juego mal hasta el parqués
Y jamás uso reloj

Y para ser más franca nadie piensa en ti
Como lo hago yo
Aunque te dé lo mismo

Si es cuestión de confesar
Nunca duermo antes de diez
Ni me baño los domingos
La verdad es que también
Lloro una vez al mes
Sobre todo cuando hay frío

Conmigo nada es fácil
Ya debes saber
Me conoces bien
(Y sin ti todo es tan aburrido)

El cielo está cansado ya de ver
La lluvia caer
Y cada día que pasa es uno más
Parecido a ayer
No encuentro forma alguna de olvidarte porque
Seguir amándote
Es inevitable

Siempre supe que es mejor
Cuando hay que hablar de dos
Empezar por uno mismo
Ya sabrás la situación
Aquí todo está peor
Pero al menos aún respiro

No tienes que decirlo
No vas a volver
Te conozco bien
(Ya buscaré qué hacer conmigo)

El cielo está cansado ya de ver
La lluvia caer
Y cada día que pasa es uno más
Parecido a ayer
No encuentro forma alguna de olvidarte porque
Seguir amándote
Es inevitable

Siempre supe que es mejor
Cuando hay que hablar de dos
Empezar por uno mismo

    my spanish 1 ..(or was it 2..) class translated it and had to memorize it..we sang it in front of a small crowd. I love this song.. the spanish say so much the english can't, even though the english version is also quite pretty.

    The song loses all of its meaning when you translate it in spanish, its actually sad.. This song says soo much, the power of the words she uses just makes you feel the deep deterioration a person can undergo with a love leaving us..

    I've always loved this song basically its along the lines of like..

    y para ser mas franca nadie piensa en ti como lo hago yo aunque te de lo mismo

    ... to be frank, no one thinks about you the way i do..even though its all the same to you.

    i love shakira, well her old stuff in spanish everything has such a powerful meaning..no matter how dumb it may sound in english.

    this is like one of my favorite songs by her.

    my favorite part is "conmigo nada es fácil, ya debes saber, me conoces bien..."

    "with me nothing is easy, you should already know, you know me well..."

    lol it just describes me... haha

    but I LOVE this song... it's so bittersweet... she's so heartbroken. she's being honest about her imperfections, but that through it all, she still loves him more than anything...

    It's such a heart-breaking song, probably because I can relate to it very much.

    She wants to be straight up and honest with him about her imperfections, hopefully mending the severed ties and reminding him that through all her perfections, she can still love and care for him more than anything else. She still has a glimmer of hope that things may work out even though she's sure that he won't return.

    this song is pretty cool. but it does help to know spanish. its mostly her singing about how she misses someone, but its a very nice song.
