Friday Song #3 “Fuiste Tu”

Hello,  everyone! I’ve been busy writing, mainly editing, a collection of short stories for my M. A. English portfolio. I’m running late on it. So I forgot about the Friday song.  This week I chose “Fuiste Tu” (It Was You) by Ricardo Arjona a Guatemalan singer-songwriter. This is a duet with Gaby Moreno, another Guatemalan singer. They’re both very talented artists. She’s also a singer-songwriter. Gaby learned English by listening to English music, which is quite impressive! She studied music in the United States. I’ll post something of hers later.

I’m a big fan of duets. I love them! So this is one of my favorite Spanish duets. I’ll post the video below. The video was recorded in Antigua, Guatemala. I will also paste the lyrics in English below the video. It’s not my translation by the way. They’re roughly accurate.

Ricardo is considered the Latin Bob Dylan because his lyrics are powerful and poetic. But I have to say…it sounds better in Spanish. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚

P.s

One of my followers informed that sometimes you can’t leave a comment. But I think I fixed it. If you can take the time to say hi, post a little smiley face, or whatever you feel comfortable with, I’d appreciate it. It’s so I know that I fixed my comment section. If you can’t, reach me on Twitter @anaprose or Instagram @chibi_roze

Thank you!

It Was You (Fuiste)

Versions:

It was you

To have you was your pictures in my wallet

A kiss and seeing you disappear on the road,

Yours was the intermittent and the melancholy

Mine was to accept everything because I loved you

Seeing you arrive was light, seeing leave was blues

It was you

It goes without saying that needless to say, so many things

learn to love the thrones or donโ€™t accept the roses

I never told a lie or created a blackmail

The gray clouds also form part of the scenery

Donโ€™t look at me like that, if there was a guilty one here

It was you.

**

how easy was it touch the sky the first time

when the kisses where the motor of ignition

that turned on the light, that disappears

Thatโ€™s how love disguises its self for its convenience

Accepting everything without asking questions

And letting time, be the final death

Nothing more to say,

just to insist

Say itโ€ฆ.

It was you,

The neon lights in the street, know how tired I am

They have seen me walk barefoot at dawn

Iโ€™m in between of who I am and who you want me to be

Wanting to wake up, thinking how I really donโ€™t want to

Donโ€™t look at me like that, if there was a guilty one here

It was you.

**how easy was it touch the sky the first time

when the kisses where the motor of ignition

that turned on the light, that disappears

Thatโ€™s how love disguises its self for its convenience

Accepting everything without asking questions

And letting time, be the final death

Nothing more to say,

just to insist

**how easy was it touch the sky the first time

when the kisses where the motor of ignition

that turned on the light, that disappears

Thatโ€™s how love disguises its self for its convenience

Accepting everything without asking questions

And letting time, be the final death

Nothing more to say,

just to insist

It was you.
