Track 3:

Como El Mar (Like the Sea)

Lyrics
Ella: Que milagro que te asomes aquí
Con que derecho te acercas a mi?
Muchas noches he pensado en ti:
Si estas con otra o extrañandome a mi.
No vengas con tus cosas
De estrellas o de rosas,
Si no me vas a amar.

El: Son muchos años de que vengo aquí
Quiero mirarte, acercate a mi.
En tus ojos yo encuentro la paz,
Como las estrellas le cuidan a el mar…
Yo estrañaba una cosa
mas bella que la rosa,
tan grande como el mar.

Choro

No es el perfume de la rosa ni lo que alumbran las estrellas
Amantes vuelan en el viento y se pierden en el mar.
Son tus caricias y tus besos, La luz de tu mirada.
Es el amor que da tu alma, tan grande como el mar.

Ella:  Y Cuando será la próxima vez?
Para olvidarte o esperarte tal vez.
Si nos sigue separando este mar
Tan aislados no tendremos hogar
No vengas con tus cosas
De estrellas o de rosas,
Si no me vas a amar.

El: No me preguntes de la próxima vez
Ven, nos tomemos mas vino en vez.
Cuando vuelvo las estrellas sabrán,
Pero algo se que no cambiara…
Yo extrañaré una cosa,
Mas bella que la rosa,
Tan grande como el mar…

Choro

English Version

Woman: What a miracle that you'd show yourself here!
With what right do you come so close to me?
So many nights I've thought about you:
If you're with another woman or alone, missing me.
Don't give me your lines about stars or roses
If you won't give me your heart.

Man: It's been many years since I've been here with you.
I want to look at you, come closer to me.
Only in your eyes I find some peace,
Like the stars watch over the sea…
There was something I've been missing,
That's more beautiful than a rose,
As big as the sea.

Chorus

It's not the aroma of the rose nor what the stars may brighten.
Lovers fly in the wind and are lost in the sea.
It's the caresses and you kisses, the light of your stare.
It's the love that your soul gives, as big as the sea.

Woman: And so when can I expect the next visit?
So I'll know if I should forget you or perhaps wait for you instead.
If this sea continues to separate us, so isolated, we will
never experience a home. Don't give me your lines about
stars or roses If you won't give me your heart.

Man: Don't ask me about when I'll return.
Here, let's just drink some more wine instead.
Just when I come back here, may be written in the stars.
But there's something I know that will never change…
There was something I will miss, That's more beautiful than a rose,
As big as the sea.…

Chorus
