Love In The Time of Cholera

I got the soundtrack off my iPhone by Wi-Fi for the new movie of the book by Gabriel García Márquez Love In The Time of Cholera… Love it! Here's the opening tune by Shakira… Can't wait to see the film!

Love In The Time of Cholera US web site: HERE

Hay Amores
Shakira

Lyrics and English translation from HERE

Shakira – Hay Amores


Ay! mi bien, que no haría yo por ti
Por tenerte un segundo, alejados del mundo
Y cerquita de mí
Ay! mi bien, como el río Magdalena
Que se funde en la arena del mar,
Quiero fundirme yo en ti.

Hay amores que se vuelven resistentes a los daños,
Como el vino que mejora con los años,
Asi crece lo que siento yo por ti.

Hay amores que se esperan al invierno y florecen
Y en las noches del otoño reverdecen
Tal como el amor que siento yo por ti.

Ay! mi bien, no te olvides del mar
Que en las noches me ha visto llorar
Tantos recuerdos de ti
Ay! mi bien, no te olvides del día
Que separó en tu vida,
De la pobre vida que me tocó vivir

Hay amores que se vuelven resistentes a los daños
Como el vino que mejora con los años
Así crece lo que siento yo por ti

Hay amores que parece que se acaban y florecen
Y en las noches del otoño reverdecen
Tal como el amor que siento yo por ti
Yo por ti…por ti…como el amor que siento yo por ti.

Can you please translate these lyrics for me to English… it's from one of her new songs that she recorded for the movie Love in the Time of Cholera. Thanks!

Oh my love! I’d do anything for you
to have you for a second, far away from the world
and close to me
Oh my love! Just like the Magdalena river
which merges into the sea sand,
I want to be one with you.

There are loves which become resistant to any damage,
just like wine improves its quality throughout the years,
in that same way my feelings for you grow ever stronger

There are loves which wait for the winter to bloom
and in the autumn evenings turn green again,
just like the love I feel for you.

Oh my love! Don’t forget the sea,
which has seen me crying at night
over all those memories I’ve got of you
Oh my love! Don’t forget the day
which separated your life
from this poor life of mine

There are loves which become resistant to any damage,
just like wine improves its quality throughout the years,
in that same way my feelings for you grow ever stronger

There are loves which seem to reach an end but then bloom
and in the autumn evenings turn green again,
just like the love I feel for you
I feel for you.. for you.. like the love I feel for you.

    It's a real classic Jen…. Here is from Wikipedia:Love in the Time of Cholera (Spanish: ''El amor en los tiempos del cólera'', 1985) is a novel by Gabriel García Márquez about a fifty-year love triangle between Fermina Daza, Florentino Ariza and Doctor Juvenal Urbino set in the late 19th century and the first decades of the 20th century (roughly 1880 to 1930). The novel, a tale of unrequited love, explores the idea that suffering for love is a kind of nobility.
