Rocío Jurado - La Querida (English translation)

English translation

The beloved one

I know you don't love him like me,
even if he's not mine.
I know you don't give him what I gave him
even if he'll go with you.
 
But when he dreams, I know,
he says my name
and you find hard to cry
night after night.
 
I bet he says "love" so differently
to when he didn't know me,
I bet in the morning he's hurried
for running to see me...
 
For something I came after,
for something I came later,
in something I must be the winner.
 
I know he returns late, I know
smelling like kisses and wine
and you don't ask him how and where
because you know it was with me.
 
You might found out that for me
he takes care and boasts
and lives happy and joyful
like in the clouds...
 
I bet now he quenches your whims...
and gives you all you ask;
all in turn for you to let him
see me everyday.
 
For something I came after,
for something I came later,
in something I must be the winner.
The winner.
