    Default A Mi Manera

    What is this song saying/meaning? That they are leaving for a new love or that they are not because it's for the best?

    Gipsy Kings A Mi Manera


    Yo se que no vendras
    Por eso ya
    Tanto la olvido
    Dejan un nuevo amor
    Tanto mejor
    Ay como el mio
    Dejar y la vive
    Ay deste mundo de tristeza
    Dejar y la vive
    Ay mi manera

    Yo quiero ser
    Hay nada mas
    Prefierare
    Y recordar
    Un nuevo amor
    Tanto Mejor
    Quisiera olvidar
    Tanto lo mejor
    Quisiera vivir
    Hay nada mas
    O si my way

    It seems to be saying that the person they are singing to doesn't want them any more.

    It seems to be a song about unrequited love.

    The lyrics start by saying "I know you won't come" so it seems to be about somebody who has arranged a meeting with the object of their affection, but is already certain that they are going to be stood up. So they have resolved to up and leave and make a new life somewhere else, and hopefully find a new love, who will return their affections.

    It doesn't appear to make a lot of grammatical sense, but I have done my best to translate it for you.


    Yo sé que no vendrás
    I know you won't come
    Por eso ya
    That is why
    Tanto la olvido
    I forget her so much
    Dejar un nuevo amor
    To leave [for] a new love
    Tanto mejor
    So much better
    Ay como el mio
    Oh, just like mine [like my own love]
    Deja e ir a vivir
    Up and leave to go and live
    En este mundo de tristeza
    In this world of sadness
    Deja e ir a vivir
    Up and leave to go and live
    A mi manera
    In my way
    Yo quiero ser
    I want to be
    Ay nada más
    Nothing more
    Me quedaré
    I will stay behind
    A recordar
    To remember
    Un nuevo amor
    A new love
    Tanto mejor
    So much better
    Quisiera olvidar
    I want to be able to forget
    Tanto lo mejor
    So much better
    Quisiera vivir
    I want to be able to live
    Ay nada más
    Oh, nothing but
    O sí my way
    Oh yes, my way
