Your Lips Will Tell Me
lyrics by Hector Marcó
You don’t love me anymore, but I can’t blame you—
if you can do this, then I can hide my tears.
But you and you alone, you and my own heart,
shall answer before God one day.
There’s nothing left now, nothing left to say—
you’re getting ready to begin
and I’m getting ready to leave.
For the sake of my love, don’t say your goodbye—
I ask only for a corner where I can lay down to die.
like a shadow following you,
like a perpetual (thirsty) dreamer,
I tried to win your love
and embrace my faith.
and I drowned in my tears,
the sweet petals of light
that like a tempest your lips
tore from the stem of my suffering.
I gave up my life for them,
I gave in to sorrow for you,
and now that I am on my knees
begging to love your soul
your lips will tell me, “goodbye.”
