Beginner | Salsa | Venezuela
The song "Llorarás" by Oscar De Leon is about a woman who is playing games with the singer's heart. Despite his efforts to win her affection, she continually avoids him. He warns her that her bad behavior will lead to regret and she will end up crying alone with no one to console her. The singer claims that she will eventually come back to him seeking forgiveness, but he has already moved on and forgotten about her. The chorus repeats the phrase "Llorarás" which means "You will cry." Overall, the song is a warning to those who play games with people's emotions and the consequences that come with it.
