Yo te esperaré English Translation & Lyrics

by Cali & El Dandee

Spanish & English

Yo te esperaré,
Nos sentaremos juntos frente al mar
Y de tu mano podré caminar
Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré
Sé que en tus ojos todavía hay amor
Y tu mirada dice volveré
Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré

Sin saber de la cuenta regresiva pienso
Que aunque no he vuelto a ser el mismo y lo confieso

Espero que el perdón este en tu mente y yo te rezo


Pero aunque soy sincero y lo prometo no me miras


Después abres la puerta y digo si te vas no vuelvas


La rabia me consume y lloras

Te alejas caminando y la vida se me desploma, sin saberlo

Te lo juro no lo sabía

Y de haberlo sabido mas fuerte sería

Cuatro de Septiembre mi frase si te vas no vuelves me persigue
Y siento ganas de llamarte pero no contestas
No entiendo porque no contestas
Y aunque hayamos peleado todo sigue

Siete de Septiembre la llamada que llegaría
Me dicen que ahí estas que no llame a la policía, luego cuelgan

Todavía no pierdo la fe se que algún día volverás

Y pase lo que pase …

Yo te esperaré,
Nos sentaremos juntos frente al mar
Y de tu mano podré caminar
Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré
Sé que en tus ojos todavía hay amor
Y tu mirada dice volveré
Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré

Siento que me quitaron un pedazo de mi alma
Si te vas no queda nada
Queda un corazón sin vida
Que a raíz de tu partida
Se quedo solo gritando pero a media voz

Siento que la vida se me va porque no estoy contigo
Siento que mi luna ya no está si no está tu cariño,
Ni toda la vida ni toda el agua del mar podrá
Apagar todo el amor que me enseñaste tu a sentir
Sin ti yo me voy a morir solo si vueles quiero despertar,

Porque lejos no sirve mi mano para caminar,

Porque solo espero que algún día pueda escapar

Yo te esperaré,
Nos sentaremos juntos frente al mar
Y de tu mano podré caminar
Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré
Sé que en tus ojos todavía hay amor
Y tu mirada dice volveré
Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré

Si tú te vas no queda nada,
Sigo cantando con la luz apagada
Porque la guerra me quito tu mirada

… Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré

Si tú te vas no queda nada,
Sigo cantando con la luz apagada
Porque la guerra me quito tu mirada

Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré

Cali y el Dandee

Si tú te vas no queda nada,
Sigo cantando con la luz apagada
Porque la guerra me quitó tu mirada

…¡Yeah! Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré

Si tú te vas no queda nada,
Sigo cantando con la luz apagada
Porque la guerra me quitó tu mirada

Y aunque se pase toda mi vida yo te esperaré

I’ll wait for you,
We’ll sit ourselves together in front of the sea
And from your hand I’ll be able to walk
And even if I pass all my life, I’ll wait for you
I know that in your eyes there is still love
And your look says I’ll return
And even if I pass all my life I’ll wait for you

Without knowing of the regressive count (countdown) I think
That although I have not returned to be the same and I confess it
I hope that the forgiveness this in your mind and I pray for you
But although I am sincere and I promise that you don’t look at me
After you open the door and I say if you leave don’t come back
The rage consumes me and you cry
You turn away walking and the life it collapses on me, without knowing it
I swear to you I did not know
And of having known it more stronger than it would be

Fourth of September my phrase if you leave don’t come back chases me
And I feel like calling you, but you don’t answer
I don’t understand why you don’t answer
And although we have fought everything remains

Seventh of September the call that would come
They tell me that you are there that not to call the police, then hang up
Still I have not lost the faith that some day you will return
And pass that which passes (whatever happens) …

I’ll wait for you,
We’ll sit ourselves together in front of the sea
And from your hand I’ll be able to walk
And even if I pass all my life, I’ll wait for you
I know that in your eyes there is still love
And your look says I’ll return
And even if I pass all my life I’ll wait for you

I feel that a piece of my soul has left me
If you leave nothing will remain
Remains a heart without life
That a root (result) of your departure
I remain alone screaming but a low voice

I feel that the life is leaving me because I am not with you
I feel that my moon is no longer if it isn’t you dear
Nor all the life nor all the water of the sea will be able to
Turn off all of the love that you (you) taught me to feel
Without you I am going to die alone if you fly I want to wake up,
Because far doesn’t serve my hand to walk,
Because I only hope that some day I can escape

I’ll wait for you,
We’ll sit ourselves together in front of the sea
And from your hand I’ll be able to walk
And even if I pass all my life, I’ll wait for you
I know that in your eyes there is still love
And your look says I’ll return
And even if I pass all my life I’ll wait for you

If you (you) leave nothing remains,
I continue singing with the light turned off
Because the war took away from me your eyes

… And even if I pass all my life I’ll wait for you …

If you (you) leave nothing remains,
I continue singing with the light turned off
Because the war took away from me your eyes

And even if I pass all my life I’ll wait for you

Cali y el Dandee

If you (you) leave nothing remains,
I continue singing with the light turned off
Because the war took away from me your eyes

…Yeah! And even if I pass all my life I’ll wait for you…

If you (you) leave nothing remains,
I continue singing with the light turned off
Because the war took away from me your eyes

And even if I pass all my life I’ll wait for you
