Lyrics Of The Week, Episode 303 – ‘Mujer Enamorada’

In Anna's, Lyrics Of The Week, Non-English Lyrics Of The Month on February 25, 2012 at 3:02 pm

Hello friends

In February edition of Non English Lyrics of the Month I’m coming back to lovely Spanish. In fact I’m somehow coming back to my roots i.e. late ninetiees, the time when my only source of Spanish were Latin telenovelas. The content was of course predictable, stereotypical and quite funny but that was a pre-Internet era so I was taking whatever I was given in Spanish . This song comes from a Peruvian telenovela called Isabella Mujer Enamorada and I think it was quite good as for telenovela. The story was about two identical twin sisters who fall in love with the same man and it did touch my heart somehow because I have always felt strange weakness to the phenomenon of twins.

The song came back to me a couple of weeks ago when I was searching for some Spanish materials. I have to admit that when I was listening to the lyrics I realized that this song is in fact about me. A couple of years ago when I bought my first deck of goddesses oracle cards, the message of one of them was more or less like this, You don’t really have to be in a relationship to feel love. At that time I was more than sceptical about it but now I can see there is sth deep in that saying. Weird as it seems I guess that as long as you have a vivid imagination, faith, hobby and this certain esprit you don’t need another person to feel love. It comes to you naturally. So whatever future holds for me me siento realizada y feliz tal como soy. And I wish you the same .

Maggie Carles ‘Mujer Enamorada’

MUJER ENAMORADA

Maggie Carles

Yo soy como me ves
Paloma en libertad
Que le roba a la vida
Momentos nada mas
Yo soy la que tu crees
No tengo que ocultar
No vivo con prejuicios
Ni temor a los demas
Soy asi como soy con mi forma de actuar
Soy feliz como estoy y no voy a cambiar

Yo soy una mujer de carne y hueso
Yo soy una mujer que se enamora
Oyendo una cancion algun poema de amor
Soñando en el silencio de mi alcoba

Yo soy una mujer apasionada
Que rie y que tambien a veces llora
No se si soy mejor o peor tan solo soy
Una sencilla y fragil soñadora

Romantica naci
Y nunca cambiare
Con todas mis virtudes y defectos ya lo se
Amo a mi soledad no le temo al reloj
Me siento realizada y feliz tal como soy
Soy asi como soy con mi forma de actuar
Soy feliz como estoy y no voy a cambiar

yo soy una mujer de carne y hueso
yo soy una mujer que se enamora
oyendo una cancion algun poema de amor
soñando en el silencio de mi alcoba

Yo soy una mujer que cuando ama
Se entrega sin medida toda toda
No se si soy mejor o peor tan solo soy
Una sencilla y fragil soñadora…

TRANSLATION (made by me)

WOMAN IN LOVE

I am what you see
A dove on the loose
Which steals only moments from life
I am the one you think
I have nothing to hide
I do not hold any prejudices
Nor fear of others
I am as I behave
I am happy as I am and I will not change

I am a woman of flesh and blood
I am a woman who falls in love
Listening to a song or a love poem
Dreaming in the silence of my bedroom

I am a passionate woman
Who laughs but also cries sometimes
I do not know if I am better or worse,
This is just how I am
A simple and fragile dreamer

I was born romantic
And I will never change
With all my strengths and weaknesses, I know
I love my solitude and I am not afraid of the calendar
I feel fulfilled and happy as I am
I am as I behave
I am happy as I am and I will not change

I am a woman of flesh and blood
I am a woman who falls in love
Listening to a song or a love poem
Dreaming in the silence of my bedroom

I am the woman who when in love
Devotes herself completely
I do not know if I am better or worse,
This is just how I am
A simple and fragile dreamer…
