Carlos Vives "La llamada" lyrics

Translation to: EN

Toda las noches
al final de la jornada
que te busco
como un loco
y que no te puedo encontrar
luego en mi cuarto
contemplando tu retrato
y esperando tu llamada
comienzo a desesperar.

Y me llamaste
y yo pensaba
que ya nada
que ya
no podía dormirme
por estar pensando en ti
no me hagas esto
sola hastá la madrugada
y al calor de tus recuerdos no me puedo resistir.

Y hablo contigo
hasta la alborada
y me imagino que eres mi almohada
y sigo hablando
y no pasa el tiempo
y al fin se acaban mis sufrimientos.

Coro:
Y no me importa
si están oyendo
que todos sepan
cuanto te quiero
y que me importa
si está cruzada
que el mundo sepa
de esta llamada.

Ya mis amigos
me critican
que estoy viejo
que ya no salgo con ellos
que no he vuelto
a parrandear
que se lamentan
de mi pobre
circunstancia
que amor de larga distancia
siempre suele terminar.

Y me aconsejan
que me olvide de esta historia
que vuelva a salir con Gloria
que no me puede olvidar
o en su defecto
que me consiga
una novia mejor si es operadora
del servicio regional.

(coro)

Te llamo de la casa
la oficina
y desde el carro
la tienda de la esquina
y desde
un celular prestado
comprando las tarjetas
de servicio prepagado
o espero
a que me llames
que me sale regalado.

Y no me importa
si están oyendo
que todos sepan
cuanto te quiero
y que me importa
si está cruzada
que el mundo sepa
de esta llamada
y que el mundo sepa
de esta llamada
que no me importa
si está cruzada.

Every night
at the end of the day
I try to contact you
like a mad man
but I cannot reach you.
Later in my room,
gazing at your picture
and waiting for your call,
I begin to lose hope.

And you called me
(just when) I thought
that was it,
that I would
not be able to sleep
because I would be thinking of you.
Don't do this to me
I am alone until daybreak
and I can't resist the warmth of your memories.

I talk to you
until dawn
and I imagine that you are my pillow.
I keep talking,
but time stands still
and finally my suffering ends.

Chorus:
And I don't care
whose listening;
let everyone realize
how much I love you.
It doesn't matter
if the phone line is crossed,
let the world know
about this call.

My friends
criticize me
saying that I am old,
that I don't go out with them anymore,
that I haven't
partied recently,
they feel sorry
for my poor
circumstance
(and say that) of long-distance love
doesn't last

They advise me
to forget about what we have,
to go out with Gloria again,
who cannot forget me;
or if that fails,
to find
a girlfriend, even better if she is the operator
of the regional service.*

(Chorus)

I call you (when I'm) at home
at the office
and in the car,
the corner store
and from
a borrowed cellphone..
when I am buying the pre-paid
phone service cards
or I wait
until you call me,
which is free!

And I don't care
if they are listening
Let everyone realize
how much I love you
and it doesn't matter
if the call is crossed,
let the world know
about this call...
and let the world
know about this call
because it doesn't matter
if (the call) is crossed.
