Patty Griffin

He encontrado en tu amor,
la fe perdida,
Ahora tiene mi vida una raz'n.
No s' si fue el embrujo de tus ojos,
que le dijo a tus labios,
R'bale el coraz'n.

Yo s' que en los mil besos
que te he dado en la boca
se me fue el coraz'n;
y dicen que es pecado
querer como te quiero,
Quiz's tengan raz'n.

Pero que ha de importarme
todo lo que me digan,
no te he de olvidar;
que si es pecado amarte
yo he de seguir pecando
nunca lo he de ocultar.

Te he de seguir amando,
te he de seguir besando
hasta volverte loca.
hasta que me devuelvas
el coraz'n que en besos
yo te deje en la boca...

[English translation:]

I have found in your love
my lost faith,
Now my life has a reason.
I don't know if it was the witchcraft of your eyes,
that said to your lips,
Steal his heart.

I know that in the thousand kisses
that I have given you on the mouth
my heart left me;
and they say that it's a sin
to love as I love you,
Maybe they're right.

But what should everything they tell me
matter to me,
I won't forget you;
for if it's a sin to love you
I will continue sinning
I will never hide it.

I will continue loving you,
I will continue kissing you
until I drive you mad,
until you give me back
the heart that in kisses
I left in your mouth...
