Tu cárcel (English translation)

English translationEnglish
A A

Your Prison

Versions: #1#2#3#4
You're leaving, love.
If that's what you want, what can I do?
Your arrogance won't let you see
that you can learn to love in poverty.
 
I want to cry and it devastates me that you think this way,
and even more so now that you're not with me,
it hurts me to know of the suffering you'll endure.
 
But remember that no one is perfect and you'll see it for yourself,
you might obtain a thousand better things
but genuine love - you'll never have it.
So forget about what you're leaving behind today and what
you're exchanging for - an adventure, that you'll soon see
will become your prison and you'll never get out.

I must have heard this song a thousand times and I never tire of it. I know there's three other translations out there but I think when it comes to songs like these, it's better to keep it simple and straight to the point (without losing too much of the original meaning). As of 2021, Marco and the other members of Los Bukis recorded a new version of the song:
