Ivan Cornejo
The song "Está Dañado" (Translation: He's Hurt / It Is Damaged) by Ivan Cornejo is about a failed relationship in the past. He still longs for her touch and scent and can't help but think about her. He recalls the way she looked at him when she professed her love and how he felt like he was flying with her. However, he also acknowledges that the promise of eternal love was a mistake. The aftermath of the breakup has been difficult for him. His mother asks him about the woman and he struggles to answer her. Ultimately, the song speaks to the pain of heartbreak and how it has left him feeling damaged.
