La Tortura (English) by Shakira


I don't ask that every day be sunny

I don't ask that every Friday be a party

Neither do I ask you to come back begging forgiveness

If you're crying with dry eyes, and talking about her

 

Oh my love, it hurts so much

It hurts so much

That you could leave without saying where

Oh my love, it was a torture to lose you

 

I know that I haven't been a saint

But I can't help it

 

Bread alone can't feed a man

And I can't live off excuses

 

Only from mistakes does one learn

And today I know that my heart is yours

 

Better that you keep it to yourself

Find another dog with that bone and let's say goodbye

 

(With seven candles I will invoke you

Beautiful things, I drag another candle)

I can't ask winter to spare a rose bush

I can't ask the elms to bear pears

I can't ask the eternal of a mere mortal

Nor go about casting to the pigs thousands of pearls

 

Oh my love, it hurts so much

It hurts so much

That you don't trust more in my promises

Oh my love, is a torture losing you

 

I know that I haven't been a saint

But I can't help it

 

Bread alone can't feed a man

And I can't live off excuses

 

Only from mistakes does one learn

And today I know that my heart is yours

 

Better that you keep it to yourself

Find another dog with that bone and let's say goodbye

 

Don't go, don't go, listen baby, watch

From Monday to Friday you have my love

Give Saturday to me and you'll be better off

Listen baby, don't punish me anymore

Without you, out there I have no peace

I'm just a repentant man

I'm the bird that returns to it's nest

 

I know I haven't been a saint

And I am not made of cardboard

 

Bread alone can't feed a man

And I can't live off excuses

 

Only from mistakes does one learn

And today I know that my heart is yours

 

Ay...Ay...Ay ay ay...

Ay, I have done everything for you

It was a torture losing you

It hurts so much that I've become so

 

Keep in crying

But I'm not going to cry...for you.
