Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER
Al comenzar la noche de aquel día,
  ella, lejos de mí,
-- ¿Por qué te acercas tanto? -- Me decía;
    -- ¡Tengo miedo de tí! --

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

Les deux craintes
Language: French (Français)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Alors que commençait la nuit, ce jour-là,
Elle dit, loin de moi :
Pourquoi t'approches-tu tant ?
J'ai peur de toi.

Et après la fin de la nuit,
Elle dit, près de moi :
Pourquoi t'éloignes-tu tant de moi ?
J'ai peur sans toi !
