Gloria Estefan (No Pretendo – Steal Your Heart)

This is my FAVORITE love song. Here is the Spanish and English versions (yes, Gloria made 2 versions of the same song !)


No pretendo ser la gota
que derrama tu silencio
Ni pretendo ser la nota que
se escapa en tu lamento

No pretendo ser la huella
que se deja en tu camino
ni pretendo ser aquel (aquella)
que se cruza en tu destino

solo quiero descubrirme
tras la luz de tu sonrriza
ser el valsamo que alivia
tus tristesas en la vida

solo quiero ser la calma
que se escurre en tu desvelo
ser el sueٌno en que descansa
la razَon de tus anelos

simplemente es el amor
cuando a roto sus cadenas
para darte el corazَn
no pretendo ser tu duenٌo(a)

No pretendo ser la llama
donde enciendes tus pasiones
ni pretendo ser la espada
que atraviese tus errores

No pretendo ser el aire
que respiras en la noche
ni pretendo ser la carne
que destila tus derroches

solo quiero ser la mano
que se tiene en el quebranto
ser un poco ese remanzo
donde muere el desengaٌo

solo quiero ser la estrella
que se engarza en tu mirada
la caricia que se entrega
sin razon y sin palabras

simplemente es el amor
que a encontrado su camino
para darte una ilusiَon
no pretendo hacerte mio


I don’t mean to be the teardrop
Spilling over your resentments
Don’t intend to be the cry
With which you voice your discontentment
I don’t want to be a picture
Fading slowly from your memory
Don’t intend to be a shadow
Simply darkening your passage

Only want to lose myself
Behind the mirror of your eyes
Be the only balm that soothes
The secret passions in your life
Only want to loose myself
Lose your sorrow
Calm this madness
Be the only one you count on
To alleviate your sadness

I’ll steal your heart and set it free
Tear down the walls that would surround you
I may hold you close to me
But these ties will never bind you

I don’t want to be the fire
That’s igniting your temptations
Don’t intend to be the sword that
That runs you through with adoration
I don’t want to be a whisper
My emotions wrapped in silence
Don’t intend to be the shout
Reminding you that time is priceless

Only want to be the wind
That lifts you high above the ground
Living only to unleash
The sacred powers that we’ve found
Only want to breathe your essence
Be your comfort, fill with laughter
Every moment that we live
From this day on, forever after.
