El Reflejo

Here is a music video by an artist named Sara Borraez. This video is particularly great because it is made up of the song’s lyrics. Great for learning! It is a beautiful and powerful ballad. I have also included la letra (lyrics) below, the original and my translation of it into English. I hope you enjoy!

 

 

[La letra en español y inglés]

 

El reflejo de mí hoy 

son cenizas del ayer 

no entiendo que paso 

de tu mano me escapé. 

Levanto mis manos hoy 

renuncio a lo que yo soy 

Muero a lo que mató 

La flor de nuestro amor. 

 

The reflection of me today

are ashes of yesterday

I don’t understand what’s happening

from Your hand I escaped

I raise my hands today

I renounce that which I am

I die to that which killed

the flower of our love.

 

CORO 

Corro a tu encuentro 

Y sin saber 

Tú estabas junto a mí 

Aunque fui yo la que te fallé 

Tu perdón me encontró 

 

I run to meet You

and without knowing

You were next to me

Although I was the one who failed You

Your forgiveness found me

 

El reflejo de mí hoy 

No lo dicta el ayer 

Creo en lo que tu amor 

Me ha hecho y me hace bien 

Por el camino angosto voy 

Sigo tus pasos, oigo tu voz 

Levanto mis manos hoy 

Renuncio a lo que yo soy 

Muero a lo que mató 

La flor de nuestro amor. 

 

The reflection of my today

isn’t  dictated by yesterday

I believe in what Your love

has done to me and it makes me well

By the narrow way I go

I follow your footsteps, I hear Your voice

I renounce what I am,

I die to what killed the flower of our love

 

CORO 

Corro a tu encuentro 

Y sin saber 

Tú estabas junto mí 

Aunque fui yo la que te fallé 

Tu perdón me encontró. 

Dame hoy tu Perdón y viviré 

Vuelvo hoy a ti

I run to meet you

and without knowing

You were with me

Although I was the one who failed You

Your forgiveness found me

Give me Your forgiveness today and I will live

Today I return to you
