Eternal Love (Amor eterno)


Amor eterno

Tú eres la tristeza de mis ojos
Que lloran en silencio por tu amor
Me miro en el espejo y veo en mi rostro
El tiempo que he sufrido por tu adiós
Obligo a que te olvide el pensamiento
Pues siempre estoy pensando en el ayer
Prefiero estar dormida que despierta
De tanto que me duele que no estés
Como quisiera, ay, que tú vivieras
Que tus ojitos jamás se hubieran cerrado nunca
Y estar mirándolos
Amor eterno, e inolvidable
Tarde o temprano estaré contigo
Para seguir amándonos
Yo he sufrido tanto por tu ausencia
Desde ese día hasta hoy, no soy feliz
Y aunque tengo tranquila mi consciencia
Sé que pude haber yo hecho más por ti
Oscura soledad estoy viviendo
La misma soledad de tu sepulcro
Tú eres el amor del cual yo tengo
El más triste recuerdo de Acapulco

Eternal Love

Versions: #1#2#3#4
You are the sadness within my eyes
That silently cry over your love.
I look at myself in the mirror and in my face shows
The time I've been suffering since your goodbye.
I force my mind to forget you
Since I'm always thinking of yesterday.
I'd rather be asleep than awake
Because of how much it hurts that you are gone
I would really like, ay, that you were alive.
That your eyes had never ever closed
and still stare at them.
Eternal love, so unforgettable.
Sooner or later I will join you,
So we can continue our love.
I've suffered quite much over your absence
Since that day day until today, I'm not happy.
And even though my conscience is clear
I know I could have done more for you.
It's a dark solitude I'm living in,
The same darkness of your sepulcher.
You are the love with whom I share,
My most saddest memory of Acapulco.

Lots of little things had to be changed to fit in context. I'll come back and make note of them later.
