Translation:
Chorus 1:
------------------------------------------------------------1
Slo t sabes bien quien soy
Y por eso es tuyo mi corazn.
Slo t doblas mi razn
Y por eso a donde t quieras voy.
Only you know (well) who I am
And that's why you have my heart.
Only you can break my reason
And that's why where you want me to go, I go.
------------------------------------------------------------/1
No creo que el mar algn da
Pierda el sabor a sal.
No creo en m todava.
No creo en el azar.
I don't believe that the sea will someday
Lose the flavor of salt.
I don't believe in me yet.
I don't believe in fate.
Slo creo en tu sonrisa azul,
En tu mirada de cristal,
En los besos que me das,
Y en todo lo que digas.
I only believe in your blue smile,
In your crystalline gaze,
In the kisses you give me,
And in everything you say.
[Chorus 1: "Slo t sabes bien quien soy..."]
Chorus 2:
----------------------------------------------------------2
Si hablo demasiado
No dejes de lado
Que nadie ms te amara as
Como lo hago yo.
If I speak too much
Don't leave my side
(Because) no one else will love you like this,
Like I do.

----------------------------------------------------------/2
No creo en Venus ni en Marte.
No creo en Carlos Marx.
No creo en Jean Paul Sartre.
No creo en Brian Weiss.
I don't belive in Venus or Mars.
I don't believe in Carl Marx.
I don't believe in Jean Paul Sartre.
I don't believe in Brian Weiss.
Slo creo en tu sonrisa azul
En tu mirada de cristal,
En los besos que me das,
Y hablen lo que hablen...
I only believe in your blue smile,
In your crystalline gaze,
In the kisses you give me,
And let them say what they will...
[Chorus 1: "Slo t sabes bien quien soy..."]
[Chorus 2: "Si hablo demasiado..."]
Quiero ser tu firmamento,
De tu boca una cancin,
De tus alas siempre ser el viento.
I want to be your heaven,
In your mouth, your song,
Of your wings, always (be) your wind.
Chorus 3:
------------------------------------------------------3
Tu terrn de sal,
Un rayo de sol,
Que a donde digas que t
Quieras que yo vaya voy.
Your pillar of salt,
A ray of sunlight,
That where you say you
Want me to go, I'll go.
------------------------------------------------------/3
Eres mi desliz, mi pas feliz,
Mi primavera,
Mi escalera al cielo, s.
Por eso sigo aqu y camino contigo,
A ti nunca podra decirte que no.
You're my (playground) slide, my happy place,
My spring,
My stairway to the sky, yeah.
That's why I continue walking this path with you,
I could never say no to you.
[Chorus 1: "Slo t sabes bien quien soy..."]
[Chorus 3: "Tu terron de sal..."]

[Chorus 2: "Si hablo demasiado..."]
