Llorad, Corazón, que tenéis razón

Language: Spanish (Español)

Lloraba la niña 
(y tenía razón)
la prolija ausencia 
de su ingrato amor. 
Dejola tan niña, 
que apenas, creo yo 
que tenía los años 
que ha que la dejó. 
Llorando la ausencia 
del galán traidor, 
la halla la Luna 
y la deja el Sol, 
añadiendo siempre 
pasión a pasión,
memoria a memoria 
dolor a dolor. 
Llorad, Corazón, 
que tenéis razón.

The girl was weeping (and with reason)

Language: English after the Spanish (Español)

The girl was weeping
(and with reason)
over the prolonged absence
of her ungrateful lover.
He left her so young,
that she hardly believed it - 
that it's been as many years since then
as her age when he left her.
Weeping over the absence
of her faithless lover,
she is found by the moon
and left by the sun.
Ever adding
suffering upon suffering,
memory upon memory,
anguish upon anguish.
Weep, heart,
for you have reason.
