La Tortura Lyrics - Shakira



Review The Song (41)


(feat. Alejandro Sanz)



[Sanz:]
Ay payita mia, guardate la poesia
Guardate la alegria pa'ti

[Shakira:]
No pido que todos los días sean de sol
No pido que todos los viernes sean de fiesta
Tampoco te pido que vuelvas rogando perdón
Si lloras con los ojos secos
Y hablando de ella

Ay amor me duele tanto

[Sanz:]
Me duele tanto

[Shakira:]
Que te fueras sin decir a dónde
Ay amor fue una tortura...
Perderte

[Sanz:]
Yo sé que no he sido un santo
Pero lo puedo arreglar, amor

[Shakira:]
No sólo de pan vive el hombre
Y no de excusas vivo yo

[Sanz:]
Sólo de errores se aprende
Y hoy sé que es tuyo mi corazón

[Shakira:]
Mejor te guardas todo eso
A otro perro con ese hueso
Y nos decimos adios

No puedo pedir que el invierno perdone a un rosal
No puedo pedir a los olmos que entreguen peras
No puedo pedirle lo eterno a un simple mortal
Y andar arrojando a los cerdos miles de perlas

[Sanz:]
Ay amor me duele tanto, me duele tanto
Que no creas más en mis promesas

[Shakira:]
Ay amor

[Sanz:]
Es una tortura

[Shakira:]
Perderte

[Sanz:]
Yo sé que no he sido un santo
Pero lo puedo arreglar, amor

[Shakira:]
No sólo de pan vive el hombre
Y no de excusas vivo yo

[Sanz:]
Sólo de errores se aprende
Y hoy sé que es tuyo mi corazón

[Shakira:]
Mejor te guardas todo eso
A otro perro con ese hueso
Y nos decimos adios

[Sanz:]
No te vayas, no te vayas
Oye negrita mira, no te rajes
De lunes a viernes tienes mi amor
Déjame el sábado a mi que es mejor
Oye mi negra no me castigues más
Porque allá afuera sin ti no tengo paz
Yo solo soy un hombre muy arrepentido
Soy como el ave que vuelve a su nido

Yo se que no he sido un santo
Es que no estoy echo de carton

[Shakira:]
No solo de pan vive el hombre
Y no de excusas vivo yo.

[Sanz:]
Solo de errores se aprende
Y hoy se que es tuyo mi corazón

[Shakira:]
AAaaay... AAaaay... AAaaay... Ay Ay
Ay todo lo que he hecho por tí
Fue una tortura perderte
Me duele tanto que sea así

Sigue llorando perdón
Yo ya no voy a llorar... por tí

errors made and explanation!!!!! | Reviewer: sarah | 4/23/12

first when i saw the words since i speak spanish i saw so many words spelled wrong. i really don't know why they got the words wrong since spanish is so easy. i hate how they spelled the words wrong. i also hate how they put the words in pictures like $#@%^&*. gosh it's so disrespectful to spanish people.they were missing so many words to the song. you know the people who write the lyrics should listen to the song carefully. i love this song but you people make me sick. i don't think that you should keep writing if you are going to make errors. I AM SICK OF IT!
NOW the positive is that at least you tried to spell the words but i think you should hire someone who speak english and spanish and who knows how to spell both english and spanish,

¡Shakria es fantastica! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/4/10

a mi me gusta su música y baile. I never really listened to her before and i'd only heard her songs in english, but this song la tortura, I'm hooked, the music is great, and the video is pretty cool. an awesome breakup song, THE breakup song.
I had to write a paper for my clase de español sobre un hispano famoso y shakira popped into my mind. I knew she was famous, but wow! The more I learn about her the more I love su música. Te quiero Shakira!!!

One of Shakira's Best Songs!!!! | Reviewer: Shaye | 2/12/10

I remember when this song first came out years ago and INSTANTLY I was HOOKED ON SHAKIRA. From that moment on I could not get enough of her and her music. Before "La Tortura" I wasn't that big of a fan. Don't get me wrong, I could name off some of her more well known songs from the radio, but that was about it. My turning point was this AMAZING Song, "La Tortura". Now, up to that point I had only had a few months of Spanish Classes back in High School years ago, and I just COULD NOT PASS that damn class to save my life! I failed horribly..( Also Just A Quick Note To Readers, If you haven't already spotted all my spelling errors) to tell the truth, Spelling also, to Define The Subject of Spelling- a crule and mean world of trouble, a sad pathetic and never ending web of a nightmare for me. However, I need to find some type of really good Spell Check after I'm done, if I can ever get back on track here. Sorry about that. Anyway, For that first time listener to this one song, all you have to do is hearthe raw emotion in Shakias voice and you too will be hooked. Even if you have no clue what she is saying you still feel it thru the music. In fact I just found a CD with this song on it and I wanted to see how my 2 kids would react to it. So I played it in the truck on the way to town today and to my suprise they actualy like it. They are 6 and almost 14 years old. When we returned home, my oldest jumped on the computer and looked up the lyrics to "La Tortura" and then the English lyrics next. I read the words in both English and Spanish and I now LOVE this song even more then I had years ago when it first came out. Me and my kid'o's are now with this song in our heads and I keep catching them singing parts of it to themselves. Kind'a cool that with a 19 year gap between my kid'o's and myself that we can still enjoy the same music and it still does not matter if we don't speak Spanish, just the rythem alone is enough to bridge any "gap". Just all around really amazing song. Thanks for The Song and Thanks For Reading! ~

love it YEAH | Reviewer: John Hayden | 10/1/09

hi, im portuguese and yeah i love spanish too, i think it's pretty sexy, i never had spanish but portuguse it's not that diferent so i understand pretty mutch, except of course some spanish vocabulary, oh and sedar te amo is also portuguese although it amo-te is more used, so you know te amo in another language ehehe

hola | Reviewer: Rose Elanor | 5/8/09

i live in spain and i love this song !!! there are so many songs in spain that are great but i think this has got to be one of the best !!!
i speak fluent spanish and this and other songs helped me learn the language quicker, if any one is trying to learn a language i suggest that they listen to a lot of music !! espanol es uno de los idiomas mas bonita del todo mundo , yo prefiero hablar espanol por esto razon !!! xxxx

la tortura | Reviewer: fan | 2/21/09

absolutely love this song! i have family in spain and im trying to learn spanish as i should have done years ago. this song is beautiful even to an english speaking person. although at first i didnt understand any of the words i could still feel the emotion through the tone of their voices, and now that i've learned the song i have a better understanding, and hopefully one day i'm fluent in spanish in order to understand this song perfectly. shakira and alejandro are both amazing and i couldnt think of anyone better to sing this song. if you haven't already, check the video out, its great. 10/10 for this song. x

This song is so deap | Reviewer: indonesia | 8/26/08

Guys i learn spanish since i was kid, but this song,, i mean the lyrics is so deep. she makes 1000 meanings of only one sentences. i think only smart people could love this song. and imposibly make in english cos english is just poor expresion language, she is Famous. why no concert in Indonesia? well yeah muslims in indonesia are having bad attitude never can respect which is real artist or bitch on stage. i can understand that. so shakira... better IGNORE INDONESIA!

SHE'S GREAT. TE AMO | Reviewer: Serdar | 11/23/07

SHE'S GREAT | Reviewer: Serdar | 11/23/07

I'm from Uzbekistan, Central Asia. I'm fan of Shakira. WE all respect her and love her SO SO SO much. THE PRETTIEST and the most famous in this world. I know in Spanish only one word, and this word belongs to SHAKIRA: SHAKIRA TE AMO. I love all her songs and your dansing makes me so crazy. I REALLY REALLY LOVE SHAKIRA. :-*

well... | Reviewer: andres | 10/7/07

I don't know...I liked this song at the begginning, when Oral Fixation vol.1 was released, but when I heard Oral Fixation vol.2 I realised these songs were better than the ones from the first album. Of course I love Shakira, I'm from Colombia and she's the most important and beautiful singer of all times, I even think if many people think the oppossite.

iranian lotus | Reviewer: bahar | 10/2/07

greatest fan of shakira | Reviewer: anhina | 9/8/07

this is quite a good song but i like orther songs too very much but the most i like about her is she comes in different looks in all her different songs yet that drives me crazy but she should now give attension to her beauty whichs a little bit fading
