Lyrics

Spanish: Cristal

Tengo el corazón hecho pedazos,
rota mi emoción en este día...
Noches y más noches sin descanso
y esta desazón del alma mía...
¡Cuántos, cuántos años han pasado,
grises mis cabellos y mi vida!
Loco... casi muerto... destrozado,
con mi espíritu amarrado
a nuestra juventud.

Más frágil que el cristal
fue mi amor
junto a ti...
Cristal tu corazón, tu mirar, tu reír...
Tus sueños y mi voz
y nuestra timidez
temblando suavemente en tu balcón...
Y ahora sólo se
que todo se perdió
la tarde de mi ausencia.
Ya nunca volveré, lo sé bien, ¡nunca más!
Tal vez me esperarás, junto a Dios, ¡más allá!

Todo para mí se ha terminado,
todo para mí se torna olvido.
¡Trágica enseñanza me dejaron
esas horas negras que he vivido!
¡Cuántos, cuántos años han pasado,
grises mis cabellos y mi vida!
Solo, siempre solo y olvidado,
con mi espíritu amarrado
a nuestra juventud…

English: Crystal

My heart is torn to pieces,
broken is my emotion today...
Nights and more nights without rest
and this restlessness in my soul...
So many, so many years have gone by,
gray are my hair and my life!
Mad... almost dead... shattered,
with my spirit tied up
to our youth.

More fragile than crystal
was my love
by your side...
Crystal was your heart, your gaze, your laughter...
Your dreams and my voice
and our shyness.
trembling soflty in your balcony...
And now I only know
that everything was lost
the evening of my absence.
I’ll never come back, I know it well, nevermore!
You might wait for me, next to God, beyond!

Everything is over for me,
everything for me turns to oblivion.
Tragic teaching left by
those black hours I have lived!
So many, so many years have gone by,
grey are my hair and my life!
Lonely, always lonely and fogotten,
with my spirit tied up
to our youth...
