Lamento Boliviano

Been looking for this Bachata, and my salsera friend, Becca knew exactly what I was talking about. I looked up the lyrics, then went to yahoo babelfish, and this is what I got. I love poor translations. They make laugh me hardly.

They want to me to shake
they insitan to me to shout
I am as a rock words does not touch to me
inside there is a volcano
that soon it is going to explode
I want to be calm…

A desolation is my situation
I am like a moan, Bolivian moan
that a day empezo and is not going to finish
and to nobody makes damage…

And I am here
drunkard and crazy person
and my stupid heart
it will always shine
and I landed on water to you
I landed on water to you by always
baby you do not comb to you in the bed
that the travelers are going away to be slow…

Ooo
And I am here
drunkard and crazy person
and my stupid heart
it will always shine
and I landed on water to you
I landed on water to you by always
baby you do not comb to you in the bed
that the travelers are going away to be slow

And I am here
drunkard and locoy my stupid heart
he will always shine
and I landed on water to you
I landed on water to you by always baby you do not comb to you in the bed

Meredith,

I was walking home after a really bad day, and your song "Afraid That You'll stay" came up on my iPhone.


I just wanted you to know that your music is still out there, touching people and making their life better.

Thanks!
Alex

Geez, that is very sweet of you to say! I appreciate it.
And, I am so flattered to hear that I made it on to an iPhone. : )
Thank you!
