Translation:

Yo sigo solo.
Aquí en la habitación, solo.
Ya anunciaste que te ibas a marchar de mi lado.

I continue alone.
Here in my room, alone.
You already declared you were leaving me.

Silencio del teléfono, lo lanzo a la pared,
No puedo más, prefiero ya
Si tú te vas
Te pido…

Silence from the phone, I throw it at the wall,
I can’t stand it anymore, (at this point) I prefer
If you leave
I ask you…


CORO:
Arráncame el corazón,
Si tú te vas,
Arráncame el corazón, te pido amor.
Arráncame la vida, te pido amor,
Arráncame el corazón.

CHORUS:
Tear out my heart,
If you leave,
Tear out my heart, I ask you my love.
Tear out my life, I ask you my love,
Tear out my heart.


Amor mió, ¿qué es lo que te pasa?
Dime si hay alguien en medio
Entre tú y yo.

My love, what is happening to you?
Tell me if there’s someone in the middle
Between you and me.

Cuéntame todo, yo lo entenderé
Y si te vas por favor arráncame la vida.

Tell me everything, I will understand
And if you leave please tear out my life.

Silencio del teléfono, lo lanzo a la pared,
No puedo más, prefiero ya
Si tú te vas
Te pido…

Silence from the phone, I throw it at the wall,
I can’t stand it anymore, (at this point) I prefer
If you leave
I ask you…

[CHORUS: “Arráncame el corazón…”]

Te pido amor…

I ask you, my love…

Y sigo esperando que regreses
A mi lado.

Sé que pronto entraras en la cuenta.
Volverás…
A mi lado…

And I continue waiting for you to return
To my side.
I know you’ll be back in inventory soon.
You will return…
To my side…

[CHORUS: “Arráncame el corazón…”]

Te pido amor… (x2)

I ask you, my love… (x2)

Volverás…
Yo sé mi amor. (x3)

You will return…
I know, my love.

Y sabrás
Lo que es amor.

And you will know
What love is.
