Verse 1
Mi piano ya no tiene teclas negras
My piano doesn't have black keys anymore
Se han teñido y ahora no las puedo ver
They've been dyed and now I can't see them
Se camuflan como el blanco de las cebras
They camouflage like the white of zebras
Que de noche no se ve
That at night you don't see
Or: That you can't see at night
¿Quién te ha dicho que me gustan los espejos?
Who told you that I like mirrors?
Si reflejan lo que todos pueden ver
If they reflect what everyone can see
Mejor clávame los ojos si es por dentro
Better claw my eyes if it's inside
Y no te asustes si esta vez
And don't be scared if this time
Prechorus 1
Descubres tu enemigo mirándote el ombligo
You discover your enemy looking at your belly button
Eres tú, nadie más, no lo busques fuera
It's you, nobody else, don't look for it outside
Adictos al peligro, qué tiene romper con los esquemas
Addicts to the danger, that has to break the plans
Chorus 1
Y yo, que todo lo muerdo
And I, who bites everything
Lit: And I, that everything I bite
Y tú, castillo de cera
And you, castle of wax
Verás que el fuego en el cuerpo no siempre te quema
You'll see that the fire in your body doesn't always burn you
Y estás tan viva por dentro
And you're so alive inside
Y yo, tan roto por fuera
And I, so broken on the outside
Yo soy color blanco y negro, y tú mi acuarela
I am color white and black, and you're my watercolor
In Spanish, you say 'blanco y negro' (white and black) rather than 'negro y blanco' (black and white)
Y tú mi acuarela
And you my watercolor

Where do I look when I don't have strength left?
¿Dónde nace tanta vida y tanta fe?

Hay preguntas que ahora no tienen respuesta

Y luego entiendes el porqué
And then you understand why
Me da miedo no dar con la melodía
I'm afraid of not finding the melody
Que me tiene todo el día persiguiendo esta canción
That has this song stuck in my head all day
Y es mi forma de quererte, qué ironía
And it's my way of loving you, what irony
Mira qué contradicción
Look what contradiction
Or: Look at what a contradiction
Prechorus 2
Descubres tu enemigo mirándote el ombligo

Eres tú, nadie más, no lo busques fuera
