Jeanette (formerly singer with the 60s group Pic-Nic) released this single in 1974. It became a hit two years later when it was memorably used in the film “Cría Cuervos”.

Hoy en mi ventana brilla el sol
Y el corazón
se pone triste contemplando la ciudad
Porque te vas
Como cada noche desperté
pensando en ti
Y en mi reloj todas las horas vi pasar
Porque te vas
Todas las promesas de mi amor se irán contigo
Me olvidarás, me olvidarás
Junto a la estación lloraré igual que un niño
Porque te vas, porque te vas
Bajo la penumbra de un farol
se dormirán
Todas las cosas que quedaron por decir
se dormirán
Junto a las manillas de un reloj
Todas las horas que quedaron por vivir
Today the sun is shining in my window
And my heart
becomes sad contemplating the city
Because you’re leaving
The way I woke up every night
Thinking about you
And I say all the hours passing on my watch
Because you’re leaving
All my promises of love will leave with you
You’ll forget me, you’ll forget me
Next to the station I’ll cry like a child
Because you’re leaving
Below the half-light of a street lamp
They’ll fall asleep
All the things that were left to say
They'll fall asleep
Next to the hands of a clock
they’ll wait
All the hours that were left to live
they’ll wait
