CASTELLANO ENGLISH
Nació de ti...
buscando una canción que nos uniera
y hoy sé que es cruel, brutal -quizás-
el castigo que te doy.
Sin palabras esta música va a herirte,
donde quiera que la escuche tu traición.
La noche más absurda, el día más triste,
cuando estés riendo o cuando llore tu ilusión.

Perdoname, si es Dios
quien quiso castigarte al fin.
Si hay llantos que puedan perseguir asi,
si estas notas que nacieron por tu amor,
al final son un cilicio que abre heridas de una historia
¡Son suplicios! ¡Son memorias!
Fantoche herido, mi dolor se alzará cada vez
que oigas esta canción.

Nació de ti.
Mintiendo entre esperanzas un destino,
y hoy sé que es cruel, brutal, quizás,
el castigo que te doy.
Sin decirlo, esta canción dirá tu nombre,
sin decirlo, con tu nombre estaré yo...
¡Los ojos casi ciegos de mi asombro,
junto al asombro de perderte y no morir!
Born out of you...
looking for some song that could unite us,
and now I know it is cruel, perhaps brutal,
the punishment I'm giving you.
Without words this music is going to hurt you
wherever your betrayal listens to it.
The most absurd night, the saddest day,
when you are laughing or when your illusion cry.

Forgive me, if it's God
who wanted to punish you after all.
If there are tears that can persecute like this,
If these notes that were born because of your love,
at the end they are a spiked belt that opens wounds of a story.
They're punishment! They're memories!
Wounded puppet, my own pain will rise each time
you' hear this song.

Born out of you...
Lying among hopes a fate,
and now I know it's cruel, perhaps brutal,
the punishment I give you.
Without saying it, this song will say your name,
without saying it, your name will be with me...
The eyes almost blind iin fear,
along the amazement of losing you and not dying!
