Translation in
No PretendoI Do Not Try
No pretendo ser la gota
Que derrame tu silencio,
Ni pretendo ser la nota
Que se escape en tu lamento

No pretendo ser la huella
Que se deja en tu camino,
Ni pretendo ser aquella
Que se cruza en tu destino

Sólo quiero descubrirme
Tras la luz de tu sonrisa
Ser el bálsamo que alivia
Tus tristezas en la vida

Sólo quiero ser la calma
Que se escurre en tu desvelo,
Ser el sueño en que descansa
La razón de tus anhelos

Simplemente, es el amor
Cuando ha roto sus cadenas
Para darte el corazón,
No pretendo ser tu dueña

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

Sólo quiero ser la mano
Que se tiende en el quebranto,
Ser un poco ese remanso
Donde muere el desengaño

Sólo quiero ser la estrella
Que se engarza en tu mirada,
La caricia que se entrega
Sin razón y sin palabras

Simplemente, es el amor
Que ha encontrado su camino
Para darte mi ilusión,
No pretendo hacerte mío

{Estrofa 5}

{Estrofas 8,9,10,5}

Simplemente es el amor
I do not try to be the drop
That spills into your silence,
Nor try to be the note
That is let out in your lament

I do not try to be the track
That is left on your path,
Nor try to be that one
That crosses your destiny

I want only to discover myself
Behind the light of your smile
Be the balsam that relieves
Your sadnesses in life

I want only to be the calm
That slips into your sleeplessness,
To be the dream in which rests
The reason for your longings

Simply, it is love
When it has broken its chains
In order to give you my heart,
I do not try to own you (lit: be your owner)

I do not try to be the flame
Where you ignite your passions,
Nor try to be the sword
That pierces your errors

I do not try to be the air
That you breathe in the night,
Nor try to be the meat
That reveals your squandering

I want only to be the hand
That is held out in a [time of] loss,
To be, a little, this pool
Where disappointment dies

I want only to be the star
That catches in your gaze,
The caress that is given
Without reason and without words

Simply, it is love
That has found its way
In order to give you my daydream,
I do not try to make you mine

{Verse 5}

{Verses 8,9,10,5}

Simply, it is love
