Lyrics

Mira Myrna

Written By: EDUARDO OLIVARES B.

Mira Myrna,Myrna mira
Myrna mirame mi amor.
Mira Myrna,Myrna mira
Myrna mirame mi amor.
Que cuando me miras Myrna mi reina,Reina eres de mi corazon.
Que cuando me miras Myrna mi reina,Reina eres de mi corazon. Es la luz de tus ojos la que enciende mi amor.
Con tu dulce sonrisa acaricias mi corazon. Es la luz de tus ojos la que enciende mi amor.
Con tu dulce sonrisa acaricias mi corazon.

TRANSLATION
The lyrics of this song are based on a play of words and alliteration; in Spanish, Myrna (a proper name ) and
Mira ( to look ) are virtually the same word in sound;so this as well as other nuances of word play will be lost in translation.

Look,Myrna,Myrna look
Look at me, Myrna my love,
When you look at me Myrna
Myrna my queen, you reign
over my heart.
It´s the light in your eyes,
That lights up my love,
With your sweet smile
You carress my heart.

SE FUE

Written By: EDUARDO OLIVARES B.

Se fue,solo quedo un silencio..
Y es que su amor se marchito.
Ya se fue, triste quedo mi corazón
..
Y es que mi amor se le olvido....

TRANSALATION
The translation to English will sound awkward, please only consider the approximate meaning of the words.....

She left..........
Only silence remained
It´s because her love
withered....
Now she´s gone....
Only a lament remained
It´s because she forgot about my love.....

Mentiras

Written By: EDUARDO OLIVARES B.

Mentiras, me hechizas con tu encanto y tus mentiras,
no tienes corazón.
Mentiras, le creo tanto y cuanto
a tus mentiras,
no tienes compasión.
Mentiras, si yo dijera que ya no te
amaba,
Si mi alma entera no te la entregara,
Mentiras corazón son tu verdad.

Translation:
Lies,you bewitch me with your charm and your lies,
You haven't got a heart.
Lies. I beleive plenty and so much:
You haven't got compassion.
Lies, If I said I didn't love you,I would lie, If my entire soul I didn't
give to you, I'd lie.Lies my heart are your truth...

Nene

Written By: Eduardo Olivares

Nena al sonar los tambores, el recuerdo
de un suave mar, de un palmar se descubre en tu andar.
Nena cuando suenan los tambores, el sabor de la sal en tus labios y el viento en tu pelo, del mar en tus ojos y el gozo del cielo me dás.

Debe Ser

Written By: Eduardo Olivares/Jorge Ritter

Debe ser que el Amor, es una ley suprema. Se nos da la oportunidad de amar alguna vez y al final aunque en la vida hay que llorar, es mas feliz quien entrega el alma.
Debe ser que tu y yo ,nunca supimos como..detener ese juego cruel que envenena al corazón y al final aunque en la vida hay que llorar es mas feliz quien entrega el alma.
Siento un reflejo de ti, que alumbra mi noche olvidada. Quiero encontrarte y no estas, por mas que busco...solo tu amor puede ser mi salvación.

TRANSLATION

It must be tha Love is a supreme law. We are all given the oportunity
to love at some point and though in life we must cry, he who surrenders his soul is the happiest in the end.
It must be that you and I never knew how to stop that cruel game that posons the heart and though in life we must cry, he who surrenders his soul is the happiest in the end.

I can feel a reflection of you, that lights up my forgotten night. I long to find you but you are not there, as much as I search.. Only your love can save me.
