You are...

Like a promise, you are, you are...
like a summer morning.
Like a smile, you are, you are [to me]
That's how, that's how, you are [that's how I perceive you]
 
You are like my hope, you are, you are... [to me]
like a fresh rain in my hands.
Like a strong breeze, you are, you are [to me]
That's how, that's how, you are [that's how I perceive you]
 
You are the water of my fountain
You are the warmth in my home
You are
You are something like, ohhhh
Like the fire in my fireplace (something like the fire from my fireplace)
You are..,
(You are something like, ohhhh)
The wheat in my bread
My love, you are something like that
 
Like my poem, you are, you are [to me]
Like a guitar in the night,
you are all my horizon, you are [to me]
That's how, that's how, you are [that's how I perceive you]
 
You are the source of my water
You are the warmth in my home
You are (You are something like, ohhhh)
Like the fire in my fireplace (something like the fire from my fireplace)
You are (You are something like, ohhhh)
The wheat of my bread (my love, you are something like that ).
 
You are...

Author's comments:

A beautiful song, one of the best love songs from the 70's, but difficult to translate.
* Brackets are my additions [ ] to complete and explain the sentences.
* The typical way to say something is " tú eres como una promesa", "you are like a promise" but the artist uses passive sentences.
* The exact translation would be: "You are, you are, like a Promise [to me]".
* another translation of "eres tu" could be "it's you".

I learnt to sing this song some 35 years ago, not knowing what the words meant. When I started to learn the Spanish language some weeks ago, I suddenly remembered this song again. Your translation will help me enjoy this song again while learning the beautiful Spanish language. Muchas gracias.

NOT a good translation! Now singing this with my Spanish Choir. Eres tu is better colloquially as, “That’s you”.

Like a promise, that’s you, that’s you
Like a summer morning,.....
Like a smile...
All of my hopes....
Like my poem....
Like cool rain on my hands...
Like a guitar in the night...
Like a strong breeze...
All my dreams (horizons)...
Like water in my fountain....
Like fire within me (in my hearth)
The fire in my home....
The flour in my bread....

Just saying....
