Los dos miedos

Language: Spanish (Español)

Al comenzar la noche de aquel día
Ella lejos de mí,
¿Por qué te acercas tanto? Me decía,
Tengo miedo de ti.

Y después que la noche hubo pasado
Dijo, cerca de mí:
¿Por qué te alejas tanto de mi lado?
¡Tengo miedo sin ti!

The two fears

Language: English after the Spanish (Español)

It all began that night
The way she looked to me,
Why did you approach me? I would say,
I fear you.

And after the night that has passed
She said, close to me:
Why are you so close to my side?
I have fear without you!
