Con dolorido cuidado
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Con dolorido cuidado,
desgrado, pena y dolor,
parto yo, triste amador,
de amores desamparado,
de amores, que no de amor.

Y el coraçón enemigo
de lo que mi vida quiere,
ni halla vida, ni muere,
ni queda, ni va comigo.

Sin ventura, desdichado,
sin consuelo, sin favor,
parto yo triste amador,
de amores desamparado,
de amores, que no de amor.

Sadly, carefully
Language: English  after the Spanish (Español) 
  Sadly, carefully,
  dejected and in pain 
  I go, the sad lover,
  abandoned by my loves
  if not by love itself.
 
  And my heart, enemy 
  of all my life desires, 
  finds neither life nor death, 
  neither remains behind nor goes with me.
 
  Desperate, without a future, 
  without consolation or favor, 
  I go, the sad lover, 
  abandoned by my loves 
  if not by love itself.
