No se enmendará jamás (The Spanish...

Language: Spanish (Español)

 No se enmendará jamás
 de amaros mi corazón
 que culpas de la razón
 cada día crecen mas.

 Crecerá cada momento
 el quereros y enojaros,
 que este delito de amores
 todo es bello entendimiento.

 Si del quereros es causa
 y razón el conoceros
 a amarte cuanto mereces
 espero llegar un día,
 pues crecen en mí la porfía,
 amor y conocimiento;
 y si medir no quisieres
 mi amor, por tu perfección,
 escucha con que primor
 explica, callando
 sus ansias, amor.

 Dicente mis ojos,
 en muda pasión
 lastimas sin quejas
 palabras sin voz.

 Como solo amarte
 mi amor pretendió
 sólo de quererte
 bien pagado estoy.

My heart will never heal

Language: English after the Spanish (Español)

 My heart will never heal
 From loving you
 For guilt borne out of reason
 Grows ever more with each day.

 With each moment
 My love for you grows, angry, 
 For this transgression of loving you
 Is a sweet accord.

 If having met you
 Is the cause and the reason for loving you,
 I hope to one day 
 Love you as much as you deserve,
 For love and understanding
 Grow within me with steadfastness; 
 And if out of sweetness you wish not 
 To measure my love,
 Hear with what grace, 
 Hiding its yearning,
 Love explains: 

 In silent passion
 My eyes tell you
 Of hurt without protest,
 Words without voice.

 Since my heart
 Only aimed at loving you,
 Having loved you
 Was the highest reward.
