10 LYRICS BY LORCA: 2. This is True


The second of my Lorca lyrics is a short, universal cry of love.

Es Verdad                                        This is True

¡ Ay qué trabajo me cuesta                    Oh, what hard work this is
quererte como te quiero !                       to love you as I love you!

Por tu amor me duele el aire,                Your love hurts me atmospherically,
el corazón,                                              heartily,
y el sombrero.                                         and hattily.

¿ Quién me compraría a mí,                   Who will buy
es cintillo que tengo                                this ribbon I have,
y es tristeza de hilo                                 and this sad scrap of white
blanco, para hacer pañuelos ?                cotton for a handkerchief?

¡ Ay qué trabajo me cuesta                     Oh! What hard work this is
quererte como te quiero !                        to love you as I love you!
