Estoy Aqui Lyrics - Shakira



Review The Song (25)


Ya sé que no vendrás
todo lo que fue
el tiempo lo dejó atrás
sé que no regresarás
lo que nos pasó
no repetirá jamás
mil años no me alcanzarán
para borrarte y olvidar
y ahora estoy aquí
queriendo convertir
los campos in ciudad
mezclando cielo con el mar
sé que te dejé escapar
sé que te perdí
nada podrá ser igual
mil años pueden alcanzar
para que pueda perdonar

[coro]

Estoy aquí queriéndote,
ahogándome
entre fotos y cuadernos
entre cosas y recuerdos
que no puedo comprender
estoy enloqueciéndome
cambiándome un pie por la
cara mía
esta noche por el día
y nada le puedo yo hacer

Las cartas que escribí
nunca las envié
no quieras saber de mi
no puedo entender
la tonta que fui
es cuestión de tiempo y fe
mil años con otros mil más
son suficientes para amar

[coro]

si aún piensas algo en mi
sabes que sigo esperándote

[coro]

Not stealing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/1/11

She didn't steal from the Pretenders, and they didn't steal from her. Both songs sample (not steal -- it's public domain) that melody from Bach's minuet in G. I think it's really cool that she was already drawing on such eclectic influences at that age!!!



Why Does The Beginning Of This Song...? | Reviewer: Michael | 2/3/10

Has anyone else noticed, the beginning of this song sounds a lot like "I'll Stand By You" (originally sung by The Pretenders), I don't know Spanish, but my comment is how the lyrics sound when she starts the song.



NOBODY CARES, ROXIE!!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/22/09

Seriously, nobody cares that she "stole" the melody of the song "I'll Stand By You" by the Pretenders. Shakira is cool, she wouldn't do a stupid thing like that. I'll bet that the Pretenders stole the melody from SHAKIRA'S song!



Our Spanish teacher | Reviewer: Nicole | 9/12/09

I absolutely love Shakira. My Spanish teacher listens to this song all the time in class. We have the 20 greatest hits cd and we listen to it while we work. It's the greatest ever! Shakira es muy talentosa!



Translation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/14/09

I speak spanish, and the direct translation beneath is not entirely correct so I figured I'll write my own:

I know that you won't come, everything that was,
time has left it behind.
I know that you won't return,
what happened to us
won't ever happen again.
a thousand years won't suffice,
to erase and forget you.
And now I am here, wanting to change
the countrysides into the city,
mixing the sky with the sea.
I know I let you escape, I know I lost you,
nothing will be the same.
It can take one thousand years
so that you can forgive.

I am here, wanting you, drowning myself
in pictures and notebooks
in things and memories
that I can't understand.

I am driving myself insane, changing myself
a foot for my face
this night for the day, and that
I can't do anything for him

The letters that I wrote, I never sent them,
he won't want to hear from me.
I can't understand, how stupid I was,
It's a matter of time and faith.
A thousand years with another thousand
are enough to love.

I am here, wanting you, drowning myself
in pictures and notebooks
in things and memories
that I can't understand.

I am driving myself insane, changing myself
a foot for my face
this night for the day, and that...

I am here, wanting you, drowning myself
in pictures and notebooks
in things and memories that...
I am driving myself insane, changing myself
a foot for my face
this night for the day, and that...

if you still think anything about me
you know I continue to wait for you

I am here, wanting you, drowning myself
in pictures and notebooks
in things and memories that...
I am driving myself insane, changing myself
a foot for my face
this night for the day, and that...

I am here, wanting you, drowning myself
in pictures and notebooks
in things and memories that...
I am driving myself insane, changing myself
a foot for my face
this night for the day, and that...
I am here
(I am here wanting you)
I am here
( I am here driving myself insane)
yeahh
( I am here wanting you, drowning myself)
driving myself insane



Translation :) | Reviewer: Kira-Amaya-chan | 7/19/09

Pretty much literal translation, not perfect, but...for those of you who don't speak Spanish, you know. I think Sam's is more poetic, but mine's more...literal?

I know that you won't come back, all that's happened
The time it left.
I know you won't regret.
What we did
Will never happen again.
A thousand years I will reach
To erase you and forget.
And now I'm here, wanting to turn
The country into the city,
Mixing the sky with the sea.
I know that you left to escape, I know that I lost you.
Nothing can be the same.
A thousand years you can reach
(A thousand years you can reach)
For what you can forgive.

I am here, wanting you, drowning myself
In photos and notebooks
In things and memories
That I can't understand.

I'm driving myself crazy, changing myself
A foot on my face
Tonight like today, one has to...
Nothing I can do to him

The letters that I wrote, never did I send
I don't want to know
I can't understand, the idiot I was
Is a question of time and faith
A thousand years with another thousand more
(A thousand years with another thousand more)
Is enough to love

I am here, wanting you, drowning myself
In photos and notebooks
In things and memories
That I can't understand.

I'm driving myself crazy, changing myself
A foot on my face
Tonight by today, one has to...

I am here, wanting you, drowning myself
In photos and notebooks
In things and memories
That...I'm driving myself crazy, changing myself
A foot on my face
Tonight like today, one has to...

Even if you think something about me
You know that I am hoping for you
Yeehh

I am here, wanting you, drowning myself
In photos and notebooks
In things and memories
That...I'm driving myself crazy, changing myself
A foot on my face
Tonight like today, one has to...

I am here wanting you, drowning myself
In photos and notebooks
In things and memories
That...I'm driving myself crazy, changing myself
A foot on my face
Tonight like the day, one has to...
I am here
(I am here wanting you)
I am here...ohhh
(I'm driving myself crazy)
Yeeahh
(I am here wanting you, drowning myself)
Driving myself crazy

Estoy Aqui | Reviewer: kankan | 11/12/08

This song is the absolute greatest. Up until now, I had no idea what the lyrics meant. I went to a camp when I was in 7th grade, called Culver in Southern Indiana, for six weeks and this song brings back so many wonderful memories for me. The girls and I would listen to this song over and over. Now that I know what the lyrics mean, the song is just that much more beautiful to me. Thank-you, so much, for posting the lyrics on-line for all of the dense-ass people, like myself, who do not understand the Spanish language. Much Love <3<3<3 Kan Kan



Please continue translating | Reviewer: sasha | 1/6/08

This is an awsome song! I love shakira! And the translation that you did made the song even better - I would love it if you could finish the translation

Thanks!



Estoy Aqui-I Am Here, translation | Reviewer: Sam | 12/8/07

-here is a translation for you, just so you know this isn't a direct translation, because if you do that it looses its meaning, and is hard to understand, so this translation tries to keep the original meaning of the song, rather than a word for word translation.

I know now that you will not come back, after all that happened,
I know that you will not return,
what happened to us,
will never happen again,
a thousand years can go by,
and i still will not be able to erase you and
forget,

chorus- And now I am here wanting to change the countryside into a city, to mix the sky with the sea, I know that I let you escape, I know that i have lost you.
nothing will ever be the same,
a thousand years can go by (a thousand years can go by) so that you may somehow forgive...
I am here, wanting you, drowning myself,
with pictures and notebooks,
with things and memories,
that I cannot understand.

*as this is taking me longer to translate than i thought it would, im going to stop here, if anyone would like me to finsih this translation let me know and i will be happy to complete it.
