Blind, Deaf, Mute (Ciega Sordomuda)

Spanish

Ciega Sordomuda

 
Se me acaba el argumento y la metodología
Cada vez que se aparece frente a mi tu anatomía
Por que este amor ya no entiende de consejos, ni razones
Se alimenta de pretextos y le faltan pantalones
 
Este amor no me permite estar en pie
Porque ya hasta me ha quebrado los talones
Aunque me levanté volveré a caer
Si te acercas nada es útil para esta inútil
 
Bruta, ciega, sordomuda,
Torpe, traste, testaruda,
Es todo lo que he sido
Por ti me he convertido
En una cosa que no hace
Otra cosa más que amarte
Pienso en ti día y noche
Y no sé cómo olvidarte
 
Cuantas veces he intentado enterrarte en mi memoria
Y aunque diga ya no más es otra vez la misma historia
Porque este amor siempre sabe hacerme respirar profundo
Ya me trae por la izquierda y de pelea con el mundo
 
Si pudiera exorcizarme de tu voz
Si pudiera escaparme de tu nombre
Si pudiera arrancarme el corazón
Y esconderme para no sentirme nuevamente
 
Bruta, ciega, sordomuda,
Torpe, traste, testaruda,
Es todo lo que he sido
Por ti me he convertido
En una cosa que no hace
Otra cosa mas que amarte
Pienso en ti día y noche
Y no sé cómo olvidarte
 
Ojerosa, flaca, fea, desgreñada
Torpe, tonta, lenta, necia, desquiciada,
Completamente descontrolada
Tú te das cuenta y no me dices nada
Ves que se me ha vuelto la cabeza un nido
Donde solamente tú tienes asilo
Y no me escuchas lo que te digo
Mira bien lo que vas a hacer conmigo
 
Bruta, ciega, sordomuda,
Torpe, traste, testaruda,
Es todo lo que he sido
Por ti me he convertido
En una cosa que no hace
Otra cosa mas que amarte
Pienso en ti día y noche
Y no sé cómo olvidarte

Argument and methodology
fail me
Each time your anatomy
appears before me
 
Because this love no longer understands
advice or reason
It feeds on pretext
and lacks nerve (literally, pants/trousers)
This love does not permit me
to remain standing
Because it finally even has broken
my talons
Even if I arise, I'll fall again
If you draw near nothing is useful
to this useless
 
brutish, blind, deaf-mute,
clumsy, lost, stubborn
this is all that I have been
because of you I've turned into
a thing that does
no other thing but love you
I think on you day and night
and I know not how to forget you
 
How many times I've tried
to bury you in my memory
And although I say, enough, no more
Again it's the same story
Because this love always knows
how to make me breathe deeply
It's pulls me to the left
and at odds with the world
 
If only I could exorcise your voice
If only I could escape your name
If only I could yank out my heart
and hide away so as not to feel myself,
once again, a
 
brutish, blind, deaf-mute,
clumsy, lost, stubborn
this is all that I have been
because of you I've turned into
a thing that does
no other thing but love you
I think on you day and night
and I know not how to forget you
 
haggard, skinny, ugly, disheveled,
clumsy, foolish, slow, stiff-necked, berserk
completely out of control
You realize it yet you say nothing to me
You see how my
head has become a nest
where only you have refuge
and you don't listen to what I tell you
Look well what you are going to make of me
 
brutish, blind, deaf-mute,
clumsy, lost, stubborn
this is all that I have been
because of you I've turned into
a thing that does
no other thing but love you
I think on you day and night
and I know not how to forget you

Author's comments:

FWIW, this translation does not attempt to capture rhyme nor meter, both marvels of construction in the original Spanish text. Wink (I also take no responsibility for any offense caused to some by the term "deaf-mute"; I've merely translated the author's choice of words.)
