Michelle Young – May 23, 2012
Okay…I’ll round this out since I brought up obsession. This one is in Spanish. I’m giving the English lyrics so you can understand it, but the translation is not perfect. I tried to smooth it out a bit more, but my Spanish is rusty.
Still, it’s smoother than the original translation I found. There’s a line that creeps in here and there throughout the song, Escucha and sometimes Sólo escucha. Escucha means ‘listen.’ Sólo escucha means ‘just listen.’ The original translation left the line out altogether!
And in a single word, this is Pluto. It’s heavily involved. Venus is in there, but Pluto takes it to new heights.
It’s five in the morning
and I haven’t slept or anything.
Thinking about your beauty, I’m going crazy.
The insomnia is my punishment.
Your love will be my relief.
And until you’re mine, I won’t live in peace.
Today, I got to know your boyfriend, small and not handsome.
I can tell he doesn’t want you by the way he speaks.
Besides, you don’t love him because he doesn’t measure up.
He doesn’t know how to please you the way I would do,
but I will have patience because he’s not competition.
There is no reason for me to respect him.
No, it is not love, what you are feeling. It’s called obsession,
an illusion in your mind that makes you do things.
This is how the heart functions.
Well-dressed and in my Lexus,
I passed by your school. They informed me
that you left. Like a lunatic, I went to reach you.
I searched for you and didn’t find you.
This made me worried.
To soothe my anxiety, I wanted to call you;
but I did not have your number
and your friend had already refused me.
Looking good helped me a lot,
and this brought me the solution.
I know that she liked it,
and I gave her a look
with a pair of cute words.
She gave me your number.
I called you from the cellphone,
and you did not answer.
Then I put you on a “search”
and there was no connection.
My only hope is that you hear my words.
“I can’t. I have a boyfriend.”
“Don’t hook me please.”
I made an appointment with a psychiatrist
to see if it would help.
You see I no longer have any friends
because I only talk about you.
What I want is to talk to you,
to try to kiss you,
to be the passion of an obsession that could never die.
And maybe you think I am stupid, rogue, and crazy too,
but it’s just that in the matter of love, I am very original.
I fell in love like others,
I seduce in my way,
to love is my talent,
I’m gonna fall in love with you.
Forgive me if I offend you
but it’s just that I’m honest
in great detail
Listen to my version
pure cream and chocolate,
to smear and devour you,
to lead you to another world
in your mind, heart.
Come live an adventure
let’s do a thousand madnesses
I’m going to caress you in ways they haven’t invented.
No es amor, no es amor, es una obsesion (repeat til fade)
[It’s not love, it’s not love, it’s an obsession.]
