Valeria Lynch - Mentira (English translation)

English translation

A Lie

A lie
Our love was only ever a lie,
A compassionate, but cruel lie;
Those beautiful words that people utter
And leave scars deep in one's soul.
 
Suddenly
My life was filled by your existence,
My luck changed thanks to your presence
And I discovered that the world could be so beautiful...
I travelled the roads of illusion.
 
And I kept believing in you, without ever suspecting
That I was only dealing with a professional liar.
Your life has only ever been a lie,
A vulgar and foolish lie,
And I was thinking that I would be your future
But I have just been another one of your many conquests.
 
I'm walking away
As I bit my lips, full of rage and sadness.
I put away my delusions of grandeur.
I played to win, but I've only managed
To earn a place in the race to oblivion.
 
And I kept believing in you, without ever suspecting
That I was only dealing with a professional liar.
I've only been your plaything; just another receptacle for your lies,
I've only been your plaything; just another receptacle for your lies,
Your life has only ever been a lie,
A vulgar and foolish lie,
And I was thinking that I would be your future...
