I believe some tunes just work better in their native language, as with this evocative Spanish bolero. I generally sing one complete English chorus for non-Spanish-speaking fans, but thought the original Spanish lyric of this tune were just too pretty to lose, so only the last few lines of this rendition are performed in English. Take special note of the wonderful Segovia-like guitar solo by Rick Howard, on acoustic guitar and Stu Shelton's wonderful piano in the background.

This tune, known more popularly in English as "Without You," is a great one for fans who love evocative Latin dances such as rhumba or tango.
Oje la confesion de mi secreto.
Nace de un corazon que esta disierto.
Con tres palabras te dire todas mis cosas.
Cosas del corazon que son preciosas.

Dame tus manos, ven, tomas las mia.,
Que te voy a confiar las ansias mias..
Son tres palabras, solamente mis angustias,
y esas palabras son..como me gustas!

Oje la confesion de mi secreto.
Nace de un corazon que esta disierto.
Con tres palabras te dire todas mis cosas.
Cosas del corazon que son preciosas

At the close of each day when I’m Without You,
And my heart kneels to pray, I pray about you.
You take a star and lead it far away from heaven

And the star will be lost, as I’m lost Wthout You.
