Una paloma blanca
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER
Una paloma blanca
Como la nieve
Me ha picado en el pecho, 
Como me duele!

Mas allá de la vida
He de quererte,
Que amor está en el alma,
Y esa no muere.

Dicen que sueño es muerte,
Ma yo lo niego,
Pues cuando duermo, vivo,
Cuando no, muero.

Une colombe blanche
Language: French (Français)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Une colombe blanche
Comme la neige
M'a piqué à la poitrine,
Comme ça fait mal !

Au-delà de la vie
Je dois t'aimer,
Car cet amour est dans mon âme,
Et ne meurt pas.

On dit que rêver est la mort,
Mais je ne suis pas d'accord,
Car quand je dors, je vis,
Quand je ne dors pas, je meurs.
