Miénteme tanto como se te antoje,
hazme infeliz sin que me entere,
que tus besos sean solo mentiras,
que me arranques el corazón y yo te sonría.

Llámame y finge que aún me quieres,
repite mi nombre al masturbarte,
hazme creer que a nadie más puedes querer,
ilusióname que no me puedo defender.

Y nada más necesitabas a alguien
que te alimente el ego,
alguien que puedas manejar, alguien como yo
y por eso maldigo mi suerte
porque me toca tenerte.
Y si esto es lo que la vida tiene para mí,
maldita suerte, destino de mierda.

Y entonces dices que es una suerte tenerme
porque nadie más puede llegar a amarte,
porque nadie más pudo extrañarte.
porque yo te enseñé lo que era un hombre.

Y dices que nunca vas a dejarme
ni siquiera cuando el mundo se desarme
y que estaremos juntos por siempre
porque hay un lazo de amor que nos une.

Y nada más necesitabas a alguien
que te alimente el ego,
alguien que puedas manejar, alguien como yo
y por eso maldigo mi suerte
porque me toca tenerte.
Y si esto es lo que la vida tiene para mí,
maldita suerte, destino de mierda.

Si estaba escrito en mi destino
que algún día te cruzaras en mi camino
maldigo la suerte que me toca vivir
y te maldigo por no dejar de existir.

Maldita suerte

I walk through the glass door
and everyone turns around to stare at me.
I feel so charming I'd run the world.
Glance at him, glance at her.
Tonight's all about having fun
'cause I smell good but I taste better.

I must confess I've been thru hell
getting more than I could take
but tonight I embrace this state
and turn it into something bright.
I'm not afraid, no longer scared
and I don't wanna be lonely, no.

I haven't still tried any sport
but I'm sure tonight I score
'cause there's something in the air.
And if we keep moving to the beat,
our bodies touching so close
I almost breathe in your breath.

I must confess I've been thru hell
getting more than I could take
but tonight I embrace this state
and turn it into something bright.
I'm not afraid, no longer scared
and I don't wanna be lonely, no.

Nobody's lonely

My mom said I had a conflicted mind.
My father never got to understand me.
Fuzzy boundaries, can't see what's right.
When you spend all night
and you don't get to see the light
boundaries get even more blurred.

Then you start wondering
what's your purpose.

Why don't you just tell me
what you expect me to be?
I'm sick and tired,
stop getting under my skin.
I'm under the bloody pressure
of walking in your goddamn shoes
and yet every step is a mistake.
Get out of my system.

My head is running wild,
don't have any space to breathe in.
Don't know what I'm gonna tell my mom
when she learns what I've been doing,
the way I've been living,
the way I got to be so screwed up.

All I ever needed was love,
someone to rely on.

Why don't you just tell me
what you expect me to be?
I'm sick and tired,
stop getting under my skin.
I'm under the bloody pressure
of walking in your goddamn shoes
and yet every step is a mistake.
Get out of my system.

Am I that worthless to deserve nothing?
I guess there's more of me to see
'cause even though I pretend I don't care
when night comes it gets really sour.

They say anybody can be replaced.
They think we're just pieces in a game.

They say everyone can take the crown
if they're willing to make a sacrifice
but Melissa does not want to bow down.
She has her own life.

Cloned, she's cloned.
Gone, she's gone.
Melissa's been cloned a while ago.
Cloned, she's cloned.
Clowned, she's clowned.
Melissa's shown her sharp claws.
Melissa's clung to being the one.

They say some features have been changed.
They say there's a true story to tell.

But deep down no one wants to know
the secrets reality holds.
They choose to pretend you're not gone
instead of a rebellion.

Cloned, she's cloned.
Gone, she's gone.
Melissa's been cloned a while ago.
Cloned, she's cloned.
Clowned, she's clowned.
Melissa's shown her sharp claws.
Melissa's clung to being the one.

Rumor has it she's not the real one
but Melissa can't be taken down
now everybody admires her
without asking any further
and if everyone says she was cloned,
they make sure the rumor's gone.

Melissa (Cloned)

She wanted to make me feel like nobody else
and she did break my heart to walk over it
and she promised she'd stay forever and one more day.
Now she's become a nightmare
that won't ever gonna leave me.
She says she thought I was gonna be her hero.
Well, I thought she was in this for real.

Sweety, ain't it funny
how insane love can get?
Sweety, don't stick around
'cause love will hurt.
Don't force it,
it won't come to happen
and it's pointless to push any further.
Remember, always stay truthful to you.

I've been less than I actually am,
been through hell and back for her
but she never grew aware of what I felt.
And at this point it gets twisted,
all the knots tie us up together
and emotions go from black to red
and our hearts grow grey walking away.

Ain't it funny
how creepy love turns to be
when we can't stop
tossing and turning?

Ain't it funny

I used to cry myself to sleep
'cause I hadn't written any song as creative
as the ones Florence has written.
I used to cry myself to sleep
'cause I couldn't find a reason to breathe,
forced to stay in this humdrum place.

When I think of those dreams shattered...

Now there's nothing left
I desire anymore.
There's nothing in this world
my heart covets at breakdawn.
'Cause there's nothing left
I would die or kill for.
There's nothing I pray for
so I won't put my hands up.

I'd always dreamt of being a poet
and my heart was infected enough to be the best.
I'd have been like a meteor in the sky.
But now there's nothing I desire anymore
'cause I don't have any will left to fight
so I'm gonna let myself go down.

When I think of those dreams shattered
like a million of stars colliding in the sky.

Now there's nothing left
I desire anymore.
There's nothing in this world
my heart covets at breakdawn.
'Cause there's nothing left
I would die or kill for.
There's nothing I pray for
so I won't put my hands up.

And here comes the part
when everybody sees how wasted I am.
And here comes the part
I raise a smile and say I'm okay.

Nothing I desire

Wrap your blazing fingers around my neck.
Burn my skin and melt my willingness.
Take my fears away and kiss me naked
that I won't even fight against this chaos.

And I'm left scared and defeated.
Like a child sobs himself to sleep.
if I'm this weak, I'll give up.

Don't be afraid, there's no need to worry.
I hear that menacing voice mocking my loss.
And in this hall of mirrors I am in
there's the defeaning silence to let me hear the sorrow.
And if I stare at the mirrors I will see the cracks
and I will hate every line of that reflection.
And I know I'm at rock bottom,
but somehow I don't want it to be over.

At night the darkness presses against my chest,
it takes over my soul, my senses of living
but somehow I embrace this state of decay
as it empties my body, drains the will left to fight.

And I'm left shaken and disturbed.
And I'm weightless as the light and I am
gone as those years when I smiled.

Don't be afraid, there's no need to worry.
I hear that menacing voice mocking my loss.
And in this hall of mirrors I am in
there's the defeaning silence to let me hear the sorrow.
And if I stare at the mirrors I will see the cracks
and I will hate every line of that reflection.
And I know I'm at rock bottom,
but somehow I don't want it to be over.

As I'm walking through this hall of mirrors
I wonder when I'm to get to the end.
This is the most deadly penance of all.

Hall of mirrors

She reminded him of a nightingale
so easily drifted into the wind.
He was the strongest Summer storm
so scared of she used to be.
Childish and reckless,
meant to forget each other
and when they fell in love
they never pictured it'd hurt so deep.
That she was so fragile he couldn't see.

Don't raise a smile, I'll pretend I haven't seen.
This is the saddest ending and we're both hurt.
When she sang she would bring about
a different meaning to all those words
that have never existed and never will.

All the purity she embodied
was destroyed by his lips,
and all the tears her eyes cried
were the light drizzle when he was leaving.
If you see a motion in the sky
make a wish before it fades away
for it isn't the first time
that music stops playing
but this time her melody will.

Don't raise a smile, I'll pretend I haven't seen.
This is the saddest ending and we're both hurt.
When she sang she would bring about
a different meaning to all those words
that have never existed and never will.

If you pretend you don't feel it
it may come to an end, she won't suffer.
If it doesn't touch your nerves, it won't exist.
If you sob in silence, it will be over.

The saddest song ever

About Me

Bio

I am an English-Spanish sworn and freelance translator, interpreter, convo teacher, academic researcher and lyricist. Although I have not been granted with a talented voice to sing, I was born with an amazing gift to write lyrics. Ever since I was a little kid I started writing my own songs, poems, short stories... That was my way to connect with my inner world and self, my way to express and to show how unique I was. All of my lyrics are quite personal and they are about my experiences, viewpoints, feelings, but somehow I think they need to be known for many people would connect and share the same feelings and emotions.
