"Podemos Hacernos Daño" by Juanes, English translation of lyrics

"We Can Cause Each Other Harm"
Style: Pop, about the potential of new relationships
Country: Colombia

Ya es tarde para que te vea
Igual que lo hacía
En los días lejanos de mi cotidiano eterno


It is late now for me to see you
The (same) way I used to
In those far away days of my everyday eternity

Mira que ya todo es tan distinto
Estamos explotando
Uno tan cerca del otro y de pronto mi amor


Look, see that everything is so different now
We are exploding
One so close to the other and all of a sudden, my love

Chorus:
Podemos hacernos daño
Podemos odiarnos tanto
Podemos hacernos daño
Podemos perder las riendas
Y encontrarnos en la guerra


We can cause each other harm
We can hate each other so (much)
We can cause each other harm
We can lose the reins
And find ourselves at war

Ves, el tiempo como cambia todo
Creíste usar al mundo
Pero fue el mundo el que te usó sin darte cuenta


See, how time changes everything
You thought you used the world
But it was the world that used you without you knowing

Mira la vida tiene un solo aviso
Que dice que no sigas
Y tú lo estás pasando y de pronto mi amor


Look, life has only one warning
That says that you shouldn't follow
And you are passing by it and all of a sudden, my love

[Chorus x3]

Yo no quiero eso para ti
Yo no quiero eso para mi


I do not want that for you
I do not want that for me

[Chorus]

Translation Notes:

---

[Pero fue el mundo el que te usó] sin darte cuenta
[But it was the world that used you] without you knowing
