"Cachito [De Tu Corazón]" by Maná, English translation of lyrics

"A Bit [Of Your Heart]"
Album: Luna; Maná MTV Unplugged
Country: Mexico

Tan solo un adicto
Un adicto de tu sol
Y es que con solo un cachito
Un pedacito de tu luz
Yo llegaría al cielo
O me caería al suelo
Por ti, amor


Just an addict
An addict of your sun
And it's just that with only a bit
A piece of your light
I would reach the heavens
Or I would fall to the ground
For you, my love

Chorus:
Tan solo
Un cachito de tu corazón
Un cachito de tu corazón
Un cachito de tu corazón
Soy un adicto de tu corazón


Just only
A bit of your heart
A bit of your heart
A bit of your heart
I am an addict of your heart

Pedirle a mi cabeza
Que deje de pensar en ti
Es casi como pedirle
A mi corazón que deje de latir
Mas bien olvida eso
No, no repitas eso, te pido amor


Asking my head
To stop thinking of you
Is almost like asking
My heart to stop beating
Better to just forget that
No, no, don't repeat that, I ask you, my love

[Chorus]

Chiquitica de mi corazón
Chiquitica de mi corazón
Chiquitica de mi corazón
Chiquitica de mi corazón


Just a crumb of my heart
Just a crumb of my heart
Just a crumb of my heart
Just a crumb of my heart

Translation Notes:

cachito (Latin American) = a little bit of something; a small piece

chiquitica = a teensy itty bitty piece

In Spanish:

-ito, -ita = small, little; diminutive form

-itito, -itita = even smaller than -ito/-ita, used as the next smallest measurement

-illo, -illa = similar to -itito/-itita; runt

-(i)tico, -(i)tica = a tiny little bit, it sounds more like a precise measurement; a small unit; usually used to make measurements sound smaller

Example:

pajaro = bird
pajarito = little bird
pajaritito = teeny bird (a particularly small bird in a group of small birds)
pajarillo = teeny bird, the bird-equivalent of a runt

pajaritico isn't something you're likely to hear.
