Adiós Amor (Goodbye Love)
Miro tus ojos y no eres feliz
Y tu mirada no sabe mentir
No tiene caso continuar así
Si no me amas es mejor partir
I look into your eyes and you're not happy
And your gaze doesn't know how to lie
There's no point to continue like this
If you don't love me, it's better to leave

Tú sacaste la peor versión de mí
Lo más bajo que he caído fue por ti
Yo no merecía to' esto
Ni de lección pa' ser honesto

The lowest I've ever fallen was because of you
I didn't deserve all this
Not even as a lesson, to be honest

Un Cumbión Dolido (A Painful Dance)
Tomándome unos tragos con extraños
En un bar de mala muerte es donde estoy
Brindando por los recuerdos que has dejado
Cantando las de despecho a todo pulmón
Having drinks with strangers
In a rundown bar is where I am
Toasting to the memories that you've left
Singing heartbreak songs at the top of my lungs

The singer's grandmother warned him that love can be dangerous and even deadly, and he now seeks solace in dancing with a broken-hearted woman who can understand his pain. Despite the sadness and heartache, the song encourages listeners to keep going and find joy in life, even in the midst of difficult times.
