Nacha Pop released this as the title track of an EP in 1984, and it’s notably more reflective than their earlier new-wave rockers. 
Songwriter Antonio Vega reveals his more philosophical side, especially in the piano version.
UNA DÉCIMA DE SEGUNDO 

Un momento en una agenda,
una décima de segundo más.
Vuela, va saltando de hoja en hoja
mil millones de instantes de que hablar.

Una ráfaga de aire frío,
un molino de viento hace girar.
Sigue, va rodando sobre su eje
describiendo una trayectoria más.

Y es que no hay nada mejor 
que imaginar,
la física es un placer.
Es que no hay nada mejor 
que formular,
escuchar y oir a la vez.
Mide el ángulo formado por ti y por mi,
es la solución a algo muy común aquí.

Ahora tú no dejes de hablar,
Somos coordenadas de un par.
Incógnita que aún falta por despejar.

Busca un libro que diga "como",
luego otro que se titula "si",
Sigue, un tercero llamado "nada",
es la forma del círculo sin fin.

Y es que no hay nada mejor 
que revolver
el tiempo con el café.
Es que no hay nada mejor 
que componer
sin guitarra ni papel.
Paralelas, vienen siguiéndome.
Espacio y tiempo juegan al ajedrez.

Ahora tú, no dejes de hablar…
A TENTH OF A SECOND

A moment in a diary,
A tenth of a second more
It flies, jumping from page to page
A thousand million moments to talk about.

A gust of cold air,
Makes a windmill turn
It goes on, going around its axis
Describing one more trajectory.

And it’s that there's nothing better 
Than to imagine
Physics is a pleasure.
It’s that there's nothing better 
Than to formulate
Listening and hearing at the same time.
Measure the angle between you and me
The solution to something mutual is here.

Don’t stop talking now
We are a pair of coordinates
Unknown, it still needs to be solved
 
Look for a book that says "How"
Then another called "If"
Continue, a third called "Nothing"
It’s the form of an endless circle.

And it’s that there's nothing better
Than stirring
Time in your coffee.
It’s that there's nothing better
Than composing
Without guitar or paper.
Parallel lines arrive, following me.
Space and time play chess.

Don’t stop talking now…
