"Cuando Ya No Me Quieras" by Julio Jaramillo, English translation of lyrics

"When You No Longer Love Me"
Style: Pasillo
Country: Ecuador

Cuando ya no me quieras,
No me finjas cariño,
No me tengas piedad,
Compasión ni temor.


When you no longer love me,
Do not fake me tenderness,
Do not have mercy on me,
(Nor) compassion nor fear.

Si me diste tu olvido
No te culpo ni riño
Ni te doy el disgusto
De mirar mi dolor.


If you gave me your oblivion
I neither fault you nor argue
Nor do I give you the displeasure
Of seeing my pain.

-Coda-
---------------------------
Partiré canturreando
Mi poema más triste.
Cantaré a todo el mundo
Lo que tú me quisiste.


I will take off humming
My saddest poem.
I will sing to the whole world
How much you loved me.

Y cuando nadie escuche
Mis canciones ya viejas,
Detendré mi camino
En un pueblo lejano
Y allí moriré


And when no one listens
(To) my songs already grown old,
I will stop my path
In a distant village
And there I will die.
---------------------------

Sé que ya no me quieres,
Me lo han dicho tus ojos;
Partiré por las rutas
Que no tienen final.


I know that you no longer love me,
Your eyes have told me so;
I will take off by the paths
That do no have an end.

Vagaré siempre, siempre,
Partiré sin enojos
Y mis labios sin besos
Cantarán un madrigal.


I will roam always, always,
I will take off without anger
And my lips without kisses
Will sing a madrigal

[Repeat from coda]
