Dos Gardenias para ti
two gardenias* for you
con ellas quiero decir
with them I want to say
te quiero; te adoro; mi vida.
I love you; I adore you; my life (1)
Ponles toda tu atencion
Put on them all your attention
porque son tu corazon y el mio.
as they are your heart and mine
Dos Gardenias para ti
two gardenias for you
que tendran todo el calor de un beso.
that will have all the heat (warmth) of a kiss
De esos besos que te di
of those kisses that I gave you
y que jamas encontraras
and that you will never find
en el calor de otro querer.
in the heat (warmth) of another love

Estribillo (Refrain)
A tu lado viviran
by your side they will live
y te hablaran
and they will talk to you
como cuando estas conmigo.
as when you are with me (as if you were with me)
Y hasta creeras
and you will even belive (think)
que te diran: te quiero.
that they will tell you: I love you
Pero si un atardecer
but if one dusk (evening)
las gardenias de mi amor, se mueren
the gardenias of my love die
es porque han adivinado
is because they have discovered
que tu amor se a terminado
that your love has finished
porque existe otro querer.
because another love exists
(2x)

* Gardenia is a flower, like the one showed in this post.
(1) "my life" means my darling, my sweetheart. Common words in Spanish to name your beloved are: mi vida, mi cielo (my heaven), mi amor (my love), cariño (darling), corazon (heart)...
