Translation:

Mi buen amor
Pues, la verdad, no hay otra cosa que yo pueda hacer.
Tú no cambiarás, no me vas a convencer
De que ahora sí, todo va a estar bien
.

My dear love
Well, truly, there is no other thing that I can do.
You won’t change, you won’t convince me
That now for sure, everything will be fine.

¿Hasta cuándo?
¿Seguirás pensando?
¿Que puedes jugar a pedir sin nada dar?
Pues, ahora no estaré esperando
.

Until when?
Will you keep thinking?
That you can play at asking without giving anything?
Well, now I won’t be waiting.

Mi buen amor
Si no quieres regresar,
¿Por qué vuelves a buscarme, una vez más?
No me pidas que te dé una última noche.

My dear love
If you don’t want to return,
Why do you return looking for me, one more time?
Don’t ask me to give you one last night.

Mi buen amor
Parece fácil para ti
Alejarte para luego exigir
Que te quiera como si nada
Nada, nada, yo sintiera.

My dear love
It seems easy to you
Leaving only to later demand
For me to love you like nothing happened
(Like) nothing, (like) I feel nothing.

Después de todo lo que tuve que pasar,
Las terapias, los amores de mentira, más mentiras.
Ahora quieres que sea tu amiga
Pues, amigo, dime cómo borro esto que siento
.

After everything I had to go through
The therapy, the fake loves, more lies.
Now you want me to be your friend
Well, friend, tell me how I erase this that I feel.

Mi buen amor
Si no quieres regresar,
¿Por qué vuelves buscarme, una vez más?
No me pidas que te dé una última noche
.

My dear love
If you don’t want to return,
Why do you return looking for me, one more time?
Don’t ask me to give you one last night.

Mi buen amor
Parece fácil para ti
Alejarte para luego exigir
Que te quiera como si nada
Nada, nada, yo sintiera,
Mi buen amor
.

My dear love
It seems easy to you
Leaving only to later demand
For me to love you like nothing happened
(Like) nothing, (like) I feel nothing,
My dear love.

Translation Notes:

Parece fácil para ti
Alejarte {sólo} para luego exigir
[*I added sólo here, which is implied]
Que te quiera como si nada
.

Leaving {only} to later demand
For me to love you like nothing happened.

It seems easy to you
Distancing yourself {only} to later demand
For me to love you like nothing.
