Transducción: La Tortura

La Tortura – Shakira (original): http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/shakira/latortura.html

The Torture (translation from Spanish)

Oh my gypsy, save the poetry

Save that happiness for yourself.

 

I don’t ask that all days are sunny,

I don’t ask that all Fridays are a celebration,

Nor do I ask you to return and beg forgiveness,

If you mourn with dry eyes,

And are talking of her.

 

Oh, my love, it hurts so much.

 

It hurts so much.

 

That you left without saying your destination,

Oh, love, it was a torture…

To lose you.

 

I know that I have not been a saint,

But I can fix it, love

 

Man does not live on bread alone,

And I don’t live on just excuses.

 

You only learn from errors,

And today I know my heart is yours.

 

Better that you save all of that

And give that bone to another dog,

And that we say goodbye.

 

I cannot ask the winter to forgive

a rose tree,

I cannot ask an elm tree to yield pears,

I cannot ask eternity of a mere mortal,

And walk about throwing thousands of pearls to the pigs.

 

Oh love, it hurts to much, it hurts so much.

That you no longer believe in my promises.

 

Oh, love

 

It is a torture

 

To lose you.

I know that I have not been a saint,

But I can fix it, my love

 

Man does not live on bread alone,

And I don’t live on just excuses.

 

You only learn from errors

And today I know my heart is yours.

 

Better that you save all of that

And give that bone to another dog,

And that we say goodbye.

 

Do not go, do not go,

Listen baby, don’t be mad,

From Monday to Friday, you have my love

Leave Saturdays, because it’s better  with me,

Listen baby, don’t punish me anymore,

Because there’s nothing out there without you,

I am only a very repentant man,

Like a bird that comes back to its nest.

 

I know I have not been a saint,

It’s not like I’m made of paper.

 

Man does not live on bread alone,

And I don’t live on just excuses.

 

You only learn from errors

And today I know my heart is yours.

 

Ay, ay, ay, ayay

Oh, everything that I have done for you…

It was a torture to lose you.

It hurts so much that it was like that.

 

Keep crying for forgiveness,

I will not mourn… for you.
