Lyrics

Spanish: Esta noche de luna

Acercate a mí
y oirás mi corazón
contento latir
como un brujo reloj.
La noche es azul,
convida a soñar,
ya el cielo ha encendido
su faro mejor.
Si un beso te doy,
pecado no ha de ser;
culpable es la noche
que incita a querer.
Me tienta el amor,
acércate ya,
que el credo de un sueño
nos revivirá.

Corre, corre barcarola,
por mi río de ilusión.
Que en el canto de las olas
surgirá mi confesión.

Soy una estrella en el mar
que hoy detiene su andar
para hundirse en tus ojos.
Y en el embrujo
de tus labios muy rojos,
por llegar a tu alma
mi destino daré.
Soy una estrella en el mar
que hoy se pierde al azar
sin amor ni fortuna.
Y en los abismos
de esta noche de luna,
sólo quiero vivir,
de rodilla a tus pies,
para amarte y morir.

Acércate a mí
y oirás mi corazón
contento latir
como un brujo reloj.
Mi voz te dirá
Palabras de miel
que harán de tu pecho
fuego encender.
El canto del mar
repite en su rumor
qué noche de luna,
qué noche de amor.
Dichoso de aquel
que pueda decir,
yo tengo un cariño
qué dulce es vivir.

Corre, corre barcarola,
que la luna se escondió.
Un amor te da la noche
y ese amor lo siento yo.

English: This Moonlit Night

Come close to me
and you’ll hear my heart
beating happy
like a bewitching clock.
The night is blue,
it invites to dream;
the sky has already lit up
its finest beacon.
If I give you a kiss
it won’t be a sin;
guilty is the night
that incites to love.
I’m tempted by love,
come closer now,
the belief in a dream
will bring us back to life.

Flow, flow, barcarole,
along my river of hope,
and from the song of the waves
my confession will spring.

I’m a star in the sea,
that today halts its march
to sink in your eyes
and in the spell
of your lips, so red,
to reach your soul
I’ll give up my destiny.
I’m a star in the sea,
lost today to fate,
without love nor fortune.
And in the abyss
of this moonlit night
I just want to live
on my knees at your feet
to love you and die.

Get close to me
and you’ll hear my heart
beating happy
like a bewitching clock.
My voice will tell you
words of honey
that will light up a fire
in your chest.
The chant of the sea
repeats in its murmur:
what a moonlit night,
what a night of love!
Happy is the one
who can say
I have a love,
how sweet it is to live.

Flow, flow, barcarole,
that the moon has concealed itself.
The night gives you love
and I feel that love.
