Lyrics

Soy un arlequín,
un arlequín que canta y baila
para ocultar
su corazón lleno de pena.
Me clavó en la cruz
tu folletín de Magdalena
porque soñé
que era Jesús y te salvaba.
Me engañó tu voz,
tu llorar de arrepentida sin perdón
Eras mujer... ¡Pensé en mi madre
y me clavé!
Viví en tu amor una esperanza
la inútil ansia de tu salvación.
¡Perdonáme si fui bueno!
Si no sé más que sufrir.
Si he vivido entre las risas
por quererte redimir.
¡Cuánto dolor que hace reír!

I am a harlequin,
a harlequin who sings and dances
to hide
his heart full of sorrow.
I was nailed to the cross
your Magdalena's leaflet
because I dreamed
that I was Jesus and saved you.
I was deceived by your voice,
your repentant weeping without forgiveness
You were a woman... I thought of my mother
and I was nailed!
I lived in your love a hope
the useless longing for your salvation.
Forgive me if I was good!
If I only know how to suffer.
If I have lived amidst laughter
for wanting to redeem you.
How much pain that makes you laugh!
