English lyrics by Karen
Morris, Toronto, Canada

This song is more of a stright forward vallenato song with the blend of forging instruments, such as the steel string guitar, a cuban "tres" Cuban "clave", and a snare drum. "Lejos De Ti" talks about being apart from the person you love and all the feelings that arise from your loneliness. This song says " with all the love from my soul I wait for you next year and I wish to tell you with my guitar, all my feelings for you. I love you, I'm always dreaming of you, and without your love I'm dying.... but I'll keep waiting for you".

Tengo las cuerdans de mi guitarra
I have the stings of my guitar

Tengo la noche y tengo mi voz
I have the night and I have my voice

Para entregarte con toda el alma
With which to deliver to you with all my soul

Las dulces notas de mi canci髇
The sweetness of my song.

Son las tretezas y la nostalgia
My song is sadness and nostalgia,

Las amargarte del coraz髇
And the bitterness of the heart.

Son tus recuerdos en la distancia
They are the memories of you at a distance

Los que me llenande inspiraci髇
That fill me with inspiration.
----------
CORO:

Con todo el amor del alma
With all the love of my soul

Te espero en el a駉 nuevo
I wait for you in the new year.

Y quiero con mi guitarra
And I want to tell you with my guitar that

Decirte lo que yo siento
You are the one for whom I wait.

Que siempre te estoy queriendo
I want to tell you that I am always wanting you

Que siempre te estoy so馻ndo
And am always dreaming of you.

Sin ti yo me estoy muriendo
Without you I am dying.

Pero te sigo esperando
But, still, I am waiting for you.

-----------
Tengo la brisa por mi ventana
The breeze that flows through my window

Que me acaricia como tu voz
Caresses me like the tenderness of your voice,

Tengo gravadas dentro del alma
Imprinted on my soul are the memories of

Las dulces huellas de tu pasi髇
Your tender and sincere passion.

Voy sumergiendome en la nostalgia
I get lost in the nostalgia

Cuando en las noches yo pienso en ti
When in the nights I think of you.

Hay una lagrima que se escapa
A sadness fills my eyes and I cry,

Porque te siento lejos de m⌦㈲㬱Because I am waiting for you.

----------
CORO:

Con todo el amor del alma
With all the love of my soul

Te espero en el a駉 nuevo
I wait for you in the new year.

Y quiero con mi guitarra
And I want to tell you with my guitar that

Decirte lo que yo siento
You are the one for whom I wait.

Que siempre te estoy queriendo
I want to tell you that I am always wanting you

Que siempre te estoy so馻ndo
And am always dreaming of you.

Sin ti yo me estoy muriendo
Without you I am dying.

Pero te sigo esperando
But, still, I am waiting for you. (x2)

-----------

Es este canto que lleva el viento
This song carries the spirit of my hope,

La voz que calma por verte ya
The voice that calms me by imagining seeing you already.

Es la esperanza de tu regreso
It is the hope of your return

Un rayo de luz en mi soledad
A ray of light in my solitude

Al despertar en las noches siento
I awaken many nights to

Que morire de tanto esperar
That feeling of waiting for you,

Pero al saber que estaremos juntos
But then rise to the knowledge that we will be together again

Se que mi pena va a terminar
And my pain will be at an end.

--------------------
CORO:

Con todo el amor del alma

You are the one for whom I wait.

Que siempre te estoy queriendo

Que siempre te estoy so馻ndo
And am always dreaming of you.

Sin ti yo me estoy muriendo
Without you I am dying.

Pero te sigo esperando
But, still, I am waiting for you. (x2)
