Antología
deShakira

Para amarte necesito una razón
y es difícil creer que no exista
una más que este amor

Sobra tanto dentro
de este corazón
que a pesar de que dicen
que los años son sabios
todavía se siente el dolor

Porque todo el tiempo
que pasé junto a ti
dejo tejido su hilo dentro de mí

Y aprendí a quitarle al tiempo los segundos
tu me hiciste ver el cielo aún más profundo
junto a ti creo que aumenté más de tres kilos
con tus tantos dulces besos repartidos
desarrollaste mi sentido del olfato
y fue por ti que aprendí a querer los gatos
despegaste del cemento mis zapatos
para escapar los dos volando un rato

Pero olvidaste una final instrucción ...
porque aún no sé como vivir sin tu amor!

Y descubrí lo que significa una rosa
me enseñaste a decir mentiras piadosas,
para poder verte a horas no adecuadas
y a reemplazar palabras por miradas
y fue por ti que escribí más de cien canciones
y hasta perdoné tus equivocaciones
y conoci más de mil formas de besar...
y fue por ti que descubrí lo que es amar...
Lo que es amar...

Ask For More
by Shakira

I'd rather dance in the air
than lie on the ground
I'd rather open my ears
than shut out the sound
Travel to the ends of the earth,
and tell you what I found

I'd rather kneel down and pray
than scream at the sun
Prefer to know, than to hide from my skeletons
I don't want to sit down and cry while watching
others run
If I missed the bus more than once, I'm not
the only one

Don't wanna wait around
for things to come to me
'Cause when my hands are tied,
they struggle to be free
And if they steal my eyes,
I'll find a new way to see

The world is forever turning,
And there's a thought
that never stops burning
If I'm pounding at your door,
It's because I'm here to ask for more

Prefer a thousand hello's
to just one goodbye
Prefer the pain of the truth to a pretty lie
Listen to the words in my head,
although they may not rhyme
Listen to the voice in my heart,
someday it's so sublime

Don't wanna wait around
for things to come to me
'Cause when my hands are tied,
they struggle to be free
And if they steal my eyes,
I'll find a new way to see

The world is forever turning,
And there's a thought that never stops burning
If I'm pounding at your door,
It's because I'm here to ask for more

Back In Black (cover AC/DC)

Back in black
I hit the sack
I've been too long I'm glad to be back (I bet
you know I'm...)
Yes, I'm let loose
From the noose
That's kept me hanging about
I've been looking at the sky
'Cause it's gettin' me high
Forget the hearse 'cause I never die
I got nine lives
Cat's eyes
Abusin' every one of them and running wild

CORO:
'Cause I'm back
OH Yes, I'm back
Yes, I'm back
Well, I'm back, back
(Well) I'm back in black
Yes, I'm back in black

Back in the back
Of a Cadillac
Number one with a bullet,
I'm a power pack
Yes, I'm in a band
With a gang
They've got to catch me
if they want me to hang
Cause I'm back on the track
And I'm beatin' the flack
Nobody's gonna get me on another rap
Just look at me now
I'm just makin' my play
Don't try to push your luck,
just get out of my way

CORO

Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, back
Well I'm back in black
Yes I'm back in black

hooo yeah
Ohh yeah
Yes I am
Oooh yeah, yeah Oh yeah
Back in now
Well I'm back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back
Back in black
Yes I'm back in black

Out of the sight

Always On My Mind
de Carson / James / Cristopher

Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine
If I made you feel second best
Girl, I'm sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't
died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied, satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You are always on my mind
You are always on my mind

Animal City
de Shakira

La la la la la lei
La la lei
La la la la la la lei
La la lei

Why do all my friends
Now want to be your lovers?
Your family got bigger
When they thought you were rich

And now like maniacs
They scratch your back
Even when it doesn't itch

I want to figure it all
I want to figure it all out
I want to save you from
Save you from all the fame
Save you from the things that cause us pain

'Cause it's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to fight you

It's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to fight you
My love

They believe you now
Have everything you wanted
And once you have become a star
You got no right to bitch

But someday when you fail
They'll put you on sale
And buy you by the inch

But you're the real deal
And "real" is your middle name
You know sometimes I feel
I gotta earn every breath you take
Baby, never mind the rules we break

'Cause it's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to bite you

It's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready rip you right off

With you I feel safe
There's nothing to fear from us
Away from the fangs
The fangs of the world
I may be a coward but you are brave
And nothing seems so dangerous

'Cause it's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to bite you

It's an animal city
It's a cannibal world
So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready rip you right off

Cannibal world
Cannibal world
Cannibal world
Cannibal world

So be obedient, don't argue
Some are ready to bite you
My love
