Lyrics

Spanish: Cada vez que me recuerdes

Como un fantasma gris llegó el hastío
hasta tu corazón, que aún era mío,
y poco a poco te fue envolviendo
y poco a poco te fuiste yendo.
Si grande fue tu amor cuando viniste
más grande fue el dolor cuando te fuiste.
Triste tañido de las campanas
doblando en mi soledad...

Cada vez que me recuerdes
la noche amiga me lo dirá
y donde el cielo y el mar se pierden
¡cuántas estrellas me alumbrarán!
Cada vez que me recuerdes
tu pensamiento me besará
y cuando el fin de tu vida llegue
junto a tu vida me sentirás.

Mi corazón se fue tras de tus pasos...
¡El pobre estaba ya hecho pedazos!
Y entre mis manos, mis manos yertas,
las esperanzas quedaron muertas...
Si hay algo que jamás yo te perdono
es que olvidaste aquí, con tu abandono,
eso tan tuyo, ese algo tuyo
que envuelve todo mi ser…

English: Everytime You Remember Me

Like a grey ghost, weariness arrived
in your heart, that was still mine,
and, little by little, it wrapped you up
and, little by little, you went away.
If your love was big when you came,
even bigger was the pain when you left.
Sad ringing of the bells,
tolling in my loneliness...

Everytime you remember me
the friendly night will tell me,
and where the sky and the sea get lost
so many stars will illuminate me!
Everytime you remember me
your thought will kiss me,
and when the end of your life arrives
you’ll feel me next to your life.

My heart went after your steps...
The poor thing was already torn to pieces!
And between my hands, my stiff hands,
the hopes died.
If there’s anything I’ll never forgive you,
is that here you forgot, with your abandonment,
that which was so yours, that something of yours
that wraps everything I am…
