#RomanticTuesday 8-30-16

Hi everyone. I hope your Tuesday is going well. The world lost Juan Gabriel, a music legend on Sunday. In case you missed my original post, you can look at it here. Many, especially in the Latino community, are taking his death really hard. However, some are celebrating his life and music career. Thousands gathered at his homes in Mexico and the U.S. to mourn his loss. He owned a home in Juarez and even here in El Paso’s lower valley. I’m including one of his songs here for today’s Romantic Tuesday post. Most, if not all of his songs, were about love and heartbreak. Throughout the years, he also collaborated with several artists by singing with them or writing their songs. It was hard to only pick one of his songs but I decided on “Abrazame muy Fuerte” (Hold me very close). The song was released in 2000. It was the theme song for the telenovela, “Abrazame muy Fuerte.” I also included the translated lyrics in English, along with a duet of the song and a video of his home in Juarez. Have a great day, everyone! I might be back later or on Wednesday.

Hold Me Very Close

When you’re with me, that’s when I say
That it was worth everything, everything I’ve suffered
I don’t know if it’s a dream
Or if it’s a reality
But when I’m with you is when I say:
That this love I feel is because I have deserved it
In telling you, love, that once again I have dawned
Crying in joy
By your side is when I feel I’m living
Nothing is as it was yesterday
Hold me, because time passes and never forgives
It has caused damage to myself, as in my character
Hold me, because time is awful and a very cruel friend
Hold me, because time is gold if you’re with me
Hold me close, very close, closer than ever
Now that you’re with me
I don’t know if time is passing or if it has stopped
I want to stay this way forever
I take advantage while you’re here
I thank you for every moment of my life
When you look to the sky
For every star you see, it’s an “I love you”
Hold me, because time hurts and the sky is witness
That time is cruel and loves no one
This is why I tell you:
Hold me very close, love, keep me like this by your side
I appreciate everything you’ve given me
I want to be with you everyday, in one way or another
Love, pain has never made me partisan
But I had to suffer when I confided and believed
In someone who swore they’d give their life for me
Hold me because time passes and it won’t stop
Hold me very close, love, because time is against us
Hold me because God forgives, but time forgives no one
Hold me because to time, it doesn’t matter who one is
Hold me because time passes and never forgives
It has caused damage to myself, as in my character
Hold me because time is awful and a very cruel friend
Hold me very close, love.
