Dejame (Version Banda) – Gerardo Ortiz

I listened to Gerardo Ortiz’s new album as soon as he released it and I really enjoyed listening to several of his songs. Dejame became one of my favorites since the first time I listened to it. Al though there are two versions of this song, Gropo and Banda, the Banda version is more to my liking.

In the past I’ve written the English translation of songs I really like, and this song just became one of them :)  My translation is based on the words, context, and what I believe the message of the song is.

Dejame – Leave Me (English Translation)

Forget about everything
My decision is definitive
I can’t stand when you speak of
Something that is already lost

I do not remember
Even the smallest detail of our past
I’m asking you
Don’t think about coming back
We are no longer friends

Forget all our memories
All the times we had
Make sure you forget
when you and I met
Do not tell me you’ve changed
that everything will get better
Because it has already been too long
Since the day you forgot about me

Leave me
I do not feel no remorse or resentment
And you know well that you are no longer important to me
And you also know
That it’s been long since I forgot about you
This is my last message
I think you can understand

Leave me
Your attempt has failed
I do not believe your story
Do not waste your time
I’m really sorry
There is nothing left to do
I can do it on my own now
I think you can understand
Leave me

Dejame – Spanish Lyrics

Borra todo de tu mente
Esto ya es definitivo
No soporto que platiques
Algo que ya esta perdido

No recuerdo
Ni el más mínimo detalle
Te lo pido
que ya no te des la vuelta
porque no somos amigos

Borra todos los recuerdos
Los momentos que tuvimos
No te olvides de borrar
cuando tu y yo nos conocimos
No me digas que me olvide
que lo tienes arreglado
Porque tiene mucho tiempo
que me tienes olvidado

Mira que no siento ni un remordimiento
Y tu sabes bien que ya no eres nadie
Y también lo sabes que
hace mucho tiempo te olvide
Es mi ultimo mensaje
Creo que puedes entender

Te fallo el intento
No se te hizo el cuento bien al parecer
No pierdas el tiempo
De verdad lo siento
Ya no queda nada por hacer
Ya me tomo de la mano
Creo que puedes entender
