“Tu Orgullo” by Carla Morrison, English translation of lyrics

“Your Pride”
AlbumDéjenme Llorar (Let Me Cry), 2012
Style: Alternative, mellow, quieter song. Carla Morrison sings about her experience with a selfish lover. Her music is melancholy with a light hand. This song is both a self-reproach for letting herself be in this situation, and a protest over how she is treated. I love her voice.

¿En qué momento perdí
El control de mis sentimientos

Control over my feelings,

How many you gave me, and why I am here now,
Sitting on the floor thinking that I love you,
That I loved you so much, and that your love is for me… necessary!
