PORQUE TE VAS
*
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
esperarán
Todas las horas que quedaron por vivir
esperarán
BECAUSE YOU’RE LEAVING
*
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
*
