Blind, Deaf-mute


I listened to the radio last night while I was in bed, and this song, Ciega Sordomuda, came on. It's been a while since I've heard it, but it reminded of me of how infatuated I was at one time, with Shakira and her album called "Donde Estan los Ladrones?", translated it means 'Where are the Thieves?". In part of the song, she blames her bf for everything, it's my favorite part.

Ciega Sordomuda (Blind, Deaf-mute) by Shakira
(translation by Himbo)

I’m exhausted of the ability of argument
And methodology
Every time your anatomy appears in front of me

Because our love doesn't comprehend
Advise nor reason
It feeds of pretexts
And it lacks pants

This love doesn't allow me to stand
Because it’s broken my heels
It doesn’t matter if I get up, because I will fall again
When you’re near, nothing works, of the useless girl

Chorus:
Gross, blind, deaf-mute
Clumsy, fret and stubborn
It's all I've ever been
For you, I have converted
Into a thing that doesn’t do anything
Other than love you
I think of you day and night
And I don't know how to forget you

Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay

How many times I’ve attempted,
Burying you in my memory
And although I say, no more
The same story replays again
Because this love always knows how to
Make me breath profusely
It picks me up and carries me on it’s left
And has me at odds with the world

If I could exorcise myself from your voice
If I could escape your name
If I could tear out my heart
And hide so I couldn’t ever feel again

Repeat Chorus

Rings under my eyes, skinny, ugly, tousled
Clumsy, foolish, slow, disgusting
Completely out of control

You know all of this, yet you tell me nothing
You see my mind has become a tangled nest
Where only you can inhabit and take shelter
And you don’t listen to anything I have to say
Really figure out what you are going to do with me

Repeat Chorus

SPANISH (Original Lyric):

Se me acaba el argumento
y la metodología
cada vez que se aparece frente a mi
tu anatomía

Por que este amor ya no entiende
de consejos ni razones
se alimenta de pretextos
y le faltan pantalones

Este amor no me permite estar en pie
porque ya hasta me ha quebrado los talones
aunque me levante, volveré a caer
si te acercas nada es util para esta inutil

Bruta, ciega, sordomuda
torpe, traste, testaruda
es todo lo que he sido
por ti me he convertido
en una cosa que no hace
otra cosa más que amarte
pienso en ti día y noche
y no se como olvidarte

Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay
ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay

Cuantas veces he intentado
enterrarte en mi memoria
y aunque diga ya no más
es otra vez la misma historia
porque este amor siempre sabe
hacerme respirar profundo
ya me trae por la izquierda
y de pelea con el mundo

Si pudiera exorcizarme de tu voz
si pudiera escaparme de tu nombre
si pudiera arrancarme el corazón
y esconderme para no sentirme nuevamente

Bruta, ciega, sordomuda
torpe, traste, testaruda
es todo lo que he sido
por ti me he convertido
en una cosa que no hace
otra cosa mas que amarte
pienso en ti día y noche
y no se como olvidarte

Ojerosa, flaca, fea, desgreñada
torpe, tonta, lenta, necia, desquiciada
completamente descontrolada
tu te das cuenta y no me dices nada
ves que se me ha vuelto la cabeza un nido
donde solamente tu tienes asilo
y no me escuchas lo que te digo
mira bien lo que vas a hacer conmigo

Bruta, ciega, sordomuda
torpe, traste, testaruda
es todo lo que he sido
popr ti me he convertido
en una cosa que no hace
otra cosa más que amarte
pienso en ti día y noche
y no se como olvidarte

    I always love the songs you post :-). BTW is she still with the prince? They were such a cute couple. I could look it up I suppose but I am too tired right now:-).

  3. They're still together and I hope all works out for them, but if it doesn't, I'm thinking it'll prove more great material like the entire "Donde Estan los Ladrones" album. Is that mean of me to look forward to?
