¡qué cosa más injusta amor!
What an unfair thing, my love!

Fuiste matando mis pasiones,
You killed (all) my passions (you were slowly killing all my passions)
tachando mis canciones,
crossing out (deleting) my songs
me tenías pisoteado,
you ruined/destroyed me
estaba desahuciado (1)
I was hopeless
no es justo, no. Bebe
It´s not fair, no. Drink

Refrain 1
Pero este mundo ya giró
But this world has now turned (around)

llora, llora, llórame...
Cry, cry, cry for me

(1) "deshauciar" means do declare someone to be terminatelly ill
(2) "llover en suelo mojado" is a saying that means to do something that serves for nothing; your action has no any impact on the situation. When the floor is already wet, the rain cannot make it more wet. Here, the singer has changed the word “llover” -to rain- for “llorar” -to cry, meaning that his crying, served for nothing; he is comparing the effect of his tears on the girl with this of raindrops falling over a wet floor.

Refrain 1

Refrain 2

(1) Clavada = stuck. In Andalusian dialect the endings of the past tense of verbs is changed by deleting the final "d". Comido = comio (eaten) , bailado = bailao (danced), querido = querio (loved)... and so on.
(2) Dado = given
(3) what magic thing have you given to me that you drove me crazy about you.
(4) siento have two menaings: to feel, to feel sorry about something or to regret.
In this context I dont know whether me meaning is "I feel like tying myself to your shadow" or "I am sorry to tie myself to your shadow".
(5) Junto = together, close to, by. Juntito is like "litle close to".

Poniendo la mano sobre el corazon
Puting my hand on my heart
quisiera decirte al compas de un son

Que tu eres mi vida
That you are my life
Que no quiero a nadie
That I want nobody
Que respiro el aire
That I breath the air
Que respiro el aire
That I breath the air
Que respiras tu
That you breath

Sangre de mi alma
Blood of my soul
Regalame las flores
Offer me the flowers
de tu esperanza

Permite que ponga
Let me put
toda la dulce verdad

que tienen mis dolores

para decirte que tu eres

el amor de mis amores
the love of my loves

Dicen que el tiempo nunca se me va a acabar

Hoy solo vengo niña yo a decirte aquí

Ya lo que digan me da igual

Por eso con tus besos es que me vienes a salvar
thats is why, with your kisses you come to rescue me

Ya lo que digan me da igual

The sintaxis of this lyrics is strange. He is choosing words in a poetic way, and sentences are not fully connected... the translation may sound weird, as in Spanish it also sounds weird.
