Lola Beltran: Paloma Negra

I’m tired of weeping and yet there’s no sign of the sun
I no longer know whether to curse you or pray for you
I’m afraid to look for you and afraid to find you
Where my friends have told me that you’ve gone
At times I feel like relinquishing the fight
And ripping out the claws that cause my pain
But my eyes are dying without looking into yours
And my affection returns to wait for you at dawn

And you decided on your own to find a party girl
Black dove, black dove where are you?
Stop playing with my honor, party girl
Your caresses must be mine, and no one else’s
And though I love you madly, don’t come back to me
Black dove, you’re the bars on this cage of suffering
I want to be free and live my life with whom I choose
Lord, give me strength for I’m dying
to go find him

And you decided on your own to find a party*

Ya me canso de llorar y no amanece
Ya no sé si maldecirte o por ti rezar
Tengo miedo de buscarte y de encontrarte
Donde me aseguran mis amigos que te vas
Hay momentos en que quisiera mejor rajarme
Arrancarme ya los clavos de mi penar
Pero mis ojos se mueren sin mirar tus ojos
Y mi cariño con la aurora te vuelve a esperar

Y agarraste por tu cuenta la parranda
Paloma negra, paloma negra ¿dónde, dónde andarás?
Ya no jueges con mi honra parrandera
Si tus caricias han de ser mías, de nadie más
Y aunque te amo con locura ya no vuelva
Paloma negra eres la reja de un penar
Quiero ser libre vivir mi vida con quien yo quiera
Díos dame fuerza que me estoy muriendo
por irlo a buscar

Y agarraste por tu cuenta las parrandas*
