I asked him, "love me?"
Take me in your arms, I have no one anymore
Don't let your scent soak into my sheets if you're going to abandon me
I'm not who you think I am
No bastard has touched me,
Apart from you, sir
No, no one has touched me
 
Cocaine, cocaine took my family
I'm a clandestine (migrant), a clandestine in Miami
Cocaine, cocaine took my family
I'm a clandestine, a clandestine in Miami
Cocaine, cocaine took my family
I'm a clandestine, a clandestine in Miami
 
Oh and if you leave me...
If you leave me...
If you leave me...
If you leave me...
 
And you drank in my words
when I talked about them
You saw my parents
You drank in my words
My brother and I were happy
So very happy
One day, fire took our men
Because others decided it
And so that gringos (white men) can fuck each other
We sacrifice futures

Author's comments:

* I can't find a neat single-word translation for 'clandestina' - in English 'clandestine' would usually be an adjective not a noun. It refers to an undocumented migrant, someone who crossed the border in clandestinely/in secret. I'm leaving it as clandestine here, grammar be damned, because the longer phrases break the flow of the song. If anyone can think of a better translation, I'd like to hear it.
