(My) beloved dove [ Paloma querida ]

English translation

(My) beloved dove

Versions: #1#2

I started toasting my beloved dove
To that day when you entered my life
And when I felt a bit tipsy
And I thought about your lips
I felt like singing

I felt superior than everybody
And I tried to get a handful of stars for you
And when I saw I couldn’t reach them
I felt so angry I wanted to cry
I don’t know how much my life may be worth
But I want to give it to you
I don’t know whether your love will receive it
But I’ve come here to leave it to you

You found me on a dark road
Like a pilgrim without faith nor direction
And the light of your divine eyes
Changed my sorrows
Into happiness and pleasure

Since then I feel I love you
With all the strength my soul has to offer
Since then my beloved dove
My chest turned into a dovecot

I don’t know how much my life may be worth
But I want to give it to you
I don’t know whether your love will receive it
But I’ve come here to leave it to you
