    Default No Supiste Esperar - Frankie Ruiz

    This one seems pretty straightforward, but some of the word orders are confusing. Hopefully lost can get to this one too



    Tu amor en la distancia se perdió,
    mi ausencia tu pasión no supo resistir
    y mientras yo anhelaba de nuevo regresar,
    el frío de tu olvido ocupo mi lugar.

    Pero no escucharás de mis labios siquiera un reproche
    ya bastante sufrió en soledad tu recuerdo en mis noches
    ahora se, que no vale la pena siquiera llorar
    si en tu amor, no existió la virtud de saber esperar.

    Te rendiste al calor de otros brazos buscando consuelo
    y mi nombre junto con tu ropa rodó por el suelo
    me borraste de tu pensamiento sin contemplación
    y al final, un deseo de tu piel, silencio el corazón.

    Y como de costumbre volviste a sonreír
    Estrenando ilusiones te olvidaste de mi
    no te importó la angustia de mi desolación
    tu amor que fue de roca se volvió de cartón

    No te importó la angustia de mi desolación
    tu amor que fue de roca se volvió de cartón

    Coro:
    Te olvidaste de mi, no supiste esperar
    Tu me llevaste a la gloria fui contigo tan feliz
    Luego me abandonaste traicionaste mi sentir
    En el calor de otros brazos se perdió tu voluntad
    No supiste esperar por mi y fue así...
    ~
    Te vas a dar cuenta pronto del error que cometiste
    Me comentan y me dicen que ahora te ven sola y triste
    Ya tu amor no me hace falta no quiero pensar en ti
    Estoy bien y mejorando y me siento tan feliz.

    Hoy mi amor lo tiene otra y es verdad...

    Here you go.

    There were a few tiny mistakes in the lyrics, which I have corrected.

    (I'm sure it's not your fault. You are probably just copying and pasting the lyrics from somewhere else, where they had been badly written).

    Note: the parts in square brackets have been added by me, to clarify the intended meaning based on the context of the song. The words in square brackets are not always based on words actually present in the source text.

    Example: the singer does not specify "I was longing to return to you" but that is what he is implying. I have therefore added the implied meaning in square brackets, to fit the context of the song.

    I am just clarifying this to you because you have indicated that you do know some Spanish, so you may be scanning my translation and going potty trying to find the words in square brackets in the original Spanish text, when they aren't there!

    Hope this helps


    Y tu amor en la distancia se perdió
    And your love was lost over the distance
    Mi ausencia tu pasión no supo resistir
    Your passion could not withstand my absence
    Y mientras yo anhelaba de nuevo regresar
    And whilst I was longing to return [to you] again
    El frío de tu olvido ocupó mi lugar
    The coldness of your forgetfulness was taking my place

    Pero no escucharás de mis labios siquiera un reproche
    But you will not even hear a reproach from my lips
    Ya bastante sufría en soledad tu recuerdo en mis noches
    I have already suffered enough alone at night with your memory
    Ahora sé que no vale la pena siquiera llorar
    I now know that it's not even worth crying
    Si en tu amor no existió la virtud de saber esperar
    For your love lacked the virtue of knowing how to wait [for me]

    Te rendiste al calor de otros brazos buscando consuelo
    You surrendered to the warmth of other arms, seeking comfort
    Y mi nombre junto con tu ropa rodó por el suelo
    And my name -- along with your clothes -- ended up on the floor
    Me borraste de tu pensamiento sin contemplación
    You erased me from your thoughts without thinking twice
    Y al final un deseo de tu piel silenció el corazón
    And in the end, the desire of your flesh silenced your heart

    Y como de costumbre volviste a sonreír
    And as usual, you were [soon] smiling again
    Estrenando ilusiones te olvidaste de mí
    With brand new things to excite you, you forgot about me
    No te importó la angustia de mi desolación
    You didn't care about the anguish of my grief
    Tu amor que fue de roca se volvió de cartón
    Your love, which used to be made of rock, turned into a cardboard love (i.e. it ceased to be strong and steadfast, and became weak and breakable)

    No te importó la angustia de mi desolación
    You didn't care about the anguish of my grief
    Tu amor que fue de roca se volvió de cartón
    Your love, which used to be made of rock, turned into a cardboard love

    Chorus:

    Te olvidaste de mí, no supiste esperar
    You forgot about me, you were incapable of waiting [for me]
    Tú me llevaste a la gloria, fui contigo tan feliz
    You took me to the seventh heaven / to cloud nine. I was so happy with you
    Te olvidaste de mí, no supiste esperar
    You forgot about me, you were incapable of waiting
    Luego me abandonaste, traicionaste mi sentir
    Then you abandoned me. You betrayed my feelings
    Te olvidaste de mí, no supiste esperar
    You forgot about me, you were incapable of waiting
    En el calor de otros brazos se perdió tu voluntad
    In the warmth of other arms, you lost your self-control / willpower
    Te olvidaste de mí, no supiste esperar
    You forgot about me, you were incapable of waiting
    No supiste esperar por mí y fue así
    You were incapable of waiting for me, and that's just the way it was

    Te olvidaste de mí, no supiste esperar
    You forgot about me, you were incapable of waiting
    Te vas a dar cuenta pronto del error que cometiste
    You are soon going to realise the mistake that you've made
    Te olvidaste de mí, no supiste esperar
    You forgot about me, you were incapable of waiting
    Me comentan y me dicen que ahora te ven sola y triste
    I've been informed and told that you are now lonely and sad
    Te olvidaste de mí, no supiste esperar
    You forgot about me, you were incapable of waiting
    Ya tu amor no me hace falta, no quiero pensar en ti
    I don't need your love any more. I don't want to think about you

    ¡Qué va!
    No way! / Not at all!

    Te olvidaste de mí, no supiste esperar
    You forgot about me, you were incapable of waiting
    Estoy bien y mejorando y me siento tan feliz
    I'm well, and getting better. I feel so happy
    Te olvidaste de mí, no supiste esperar
    You forgot about me, you were incapable of waiting
    Hoy mi amor lo tiene otra y es verdad.
    Today my love belongs to another [woman], and that is the truth
