Iris Chacón - Yo sé que mentía (English translation)

Spanish

Yo sé que mentía

Llegó de repente a mis fantasías,
volaba mi mente con su hipocresía
inventando sueños que no se cumplían.
 
Tomaba mis manos jurando "te quiero";
de noche, escapaba buscando otro lecho
y yo, tan paciente, muriendo de celos.
 
Mentía ¡Yo sé que mentía!
cuando me juraba
que yo era su vida.
Cuando me decía
que ya no podía
vivir sin mí.
 
Mentía ¡Yo sé que mentía!
con falsas promesas,
con tiernas caricias.
Su cara de niño,
que me seducía...
¡Yo sé que mentía!
 
Mentía... Mentía...
¡Yo sé que mentía!
Mentía... Mentía...
¡Yo sé que mentía!
 
Tomaba mis manos jurando "te quiero";
de noche, escapaba buscando otro lecho
y yo, tan paciente, muriendo de celos.
 
Mentía ¡Yo sé que mentía!
con falsas promesas,
con tiernas caricias.
Su cara de niño,
que me seducía...
¡Yo sé que mentía!
 
Mentía... Mentía...
¡Yo sé que mentía!
Mentía... Mentía...
¡Yo sé que mentía!

I Know he Was Lying

He appeared all of a sudden, like a fantasy fulfilled
My mind was reeling thanks to his hypocrisy
As he talked about dreams that would never become true.
 
He'd hold my hands, swearing that he loved me
But each night he'd leave me to lie in someone else's bed
And meanwhile I, patiently endured the pangs of jealousy.
 
He was lying, I know he was lying!
Each time he swore
That I meant the world to him.
Whenever he'd say
That he couldn't
Live without me.
 
He was lying, I know he was lying!
With his false promises,
With his soft caresses.
With his innocent face
That would always seduce me
I know he was lying!
 
He was lying... He was lying...
I know he was lying!
He was lying... He was lying...
I know he was lying!
 
He'd hold my hands, swearing that he loved me
But each night he'd leave me to lie in someone else's bed
And meanwhile I, patiently endured the pangs of jealousy.
 
He was lying, I know he was lying!
With his false promises,
With his soft caresses.
With his innocent face
That would always seduce me
I know he was lying!
 
He was lying... He was lying...
I know he was lying!
He was lying... He was lying...
I know he was lying!
