Lyrics

Viente Anos by Maria Teresa Vera
Capo 1

em
Qué te importa que te ame
B7
si tú no me quieres ya

El amor que ya ha pasado
em
no se debe recordar.
E
Fui la ilusión de tu vida
Am
un día lejano ya,
em
hoy represento el pasado
C bm em
no me puedo conformar.

D7
Si las cosas que uno quiere
G
se pudieran alcanzar
B7
tú me quisieras lo mismo
em
que veinte años atrás.
E
Con qué tristeza miramos
am
un amor que se nos va
em
es un pedazo del alma
C bm em
que se arranca sin piedad.

Twenty Years,

What does my love mean to you,
if you no longer love me?
We should not dwell on love that is past.
I was your life's desire one day long ago.
Now I'm history I can't face the change.
If only we could make our dreams come true .
If only you would love me as you did twenty years ago.
How mournfully we watch a love that ebbs away heartlessly a part of the soul is torn away.
