1. Te Felicito (I Congratulate You)
Shakira, Rauw Alejandro
Por completarte me rompí en pedazos
Me lo advirtieron, pero no hice caso

Fue la gota que rebasó el vaso
To complete you I broke into pieces
They warned me, but I ignored
I realized that yours is false
It was the drop that overflowed the glass

2. Castillo de Cera (Castle of Wax)
Mi piano ya no tiene teclas negras
Se han teñido y ahora no las puedo ver
Se camuflan como el blanco de las cebras
Que de noche no se ve
My piano doesn't have black keys anymore
They've been dyed and now I can't see them
They camouflage like the white of zebras
That at night you don't see

Your old friends don't even know you anymore

Cuando te falte mi piel?

If you were the one who walked away
But this time it didn't hurt, baby

Díganle, que su partida me ha dejado un mal sabor
Y yo traté de llenar la ausencia que dejó

And I tried to fill the absence that he left
I can still sense his voice
I still think of his breathing

Ya ni duermo
