No le creo a tu voz porque calla la verdad, le creo a tus ojos que me quieren ver, creo en tus piernas que tiemblan cuando te alejas de mi. (deseo)
I don´t believe in your voice because it hides the truth, I believe in your eyes because they want to see me, I believe in your legs, because they tremble when you walk away from me. (desire)
