Written by Consuelo Velazquez

Yo tengo que decirte la verdad
Aunque me parta el alma
No quiero que despuГ©s me juzgues mal
Por pretender callarla

Yo sГ© que es imposible nuestro amor
Porque el destino manda
Y tГє sabrГЎs un dГ­a perdonar
Esta verdad amarga

Te juro por los dos
Que me cuesta la vida
Que sangrarГЎ la herida
Por una eternidad

Tal vez maсana puedas comprender
Que siempre fui sincera
Tal vez por alguien llegues a saber
Que todavГ­a te quiero

Te juro por los dos
Que me cuesta la vida
Que sangrarГЎ la herida
Por una eternidad

Tal vez maсana puedas comprender
Que siempre fui sincera
QuizГЎ por alguien llegues a saber
Que todavГ­a te quiero


Verdad Amarga
(Bitter Truth)

I have to tell the truth
Even if it breaks my heart
I don't want to be misjudged later
For trying to conceal it

I know our love is impossible
Because it is our destiny
And one day you'll be able to pardon
This bitter truth

I swear
That it's costing me my life
That this wound will bleed
For an eternity

Maybe later you might understand
That I was always sincere
Perhaps someone will help you see
That I still love you
