Before 6 p.m. (Antes de las seis)

Before 6 p.m.

Versions: #1#2#3

Don't act so weird
Hard as a rock
If I showed you pieces of skin
That even the sunlight doesn't touch
And so many moles I didn't even know about
I showed you my sheer force
Achilles' heel, my poetry

What will you do, just one more story
What will I do if I don't see you again
Oh, oh

If since the day you're not there
I saw the night fall way before 6 p.m.
If since the day you're not there
I saw the night fall way before 6 p.m.
Way before

Don't leave the boat
When we haven't even set sail yet
Toward some desert island

And later, later we'll see
If you see me unarmed
Because you launch your missiles
If you already know my cardinal points
The most sensitive and subtle ones

What will you do, life will tell
What will I do if I don't see you again
Oh, oh

If since the day you're not there
I saw the night fall way before 6 p.m.
If since the day you're not there
I saw the night fall way before 6 p.m.

Way before 6 p.m.

Way before

A bit too literal.

I agree, it's probably too literal, because it takes the poetry out of the lyric. And the rhyme.

I bet if Shakira was translating it, she would say something like,

"If you should ever leave my side,
I won't care if the sun sets before five."
