Tell me, my love… (Dime, mi amor)

Spanish version


Al compás dormilón de nuestro tango,
con mi brazo ciñiendo tu cintura,
murmurando mil frases de cariño,
entreviendo mil cielos de ventura.
Yo quisiera saber si hay en tu pecho,
todavía, esperanza para mí,
si la ausencia y la distancia no han borrado
el amor que yo en tus ojos entreví.

Dime mi amor,
dime mi amor
si aún me quieres;
si la ausencia no mató tu querer,
si hoy, como ayer,
puedo creer…
Dime mi amor,
dime mi amor
si aún prefieres
mi corazón
que hoy para ti
pongo en mi triste canción.

Al compás dormilón de nuestro tango,
con mi brazo ciñiendo tu cintura,
murmurando mil frases de cariño,
entreviendo mil cielos de ventura.
Yo quisiera saber si hay en tu pecho
todavía esperanza para mí,
si la ausencia y la distancia no han borrado
el amor que yo en tus ojos entreví.

Embrujamiento

hector maure

I am not afraid to admit that I have a weakness for Hector Mauré. Whenever, for a heretical reason, I haven’t been able to listen to tango for a few days, the first gentle reminder is a subtle, involuntary repetition, inside my brain, of the words ”Allá, junto a la ribera, un tano feliz vivía….”.

Hector Mauré was the singer who, perhaps, forced Juan D’Arienzo to adapt to a more lyrical style during a few years. The song that you are about to hear is still relatively up-beat compared to other Mauré songs, but still much more sensitive than your regular D’Arienzo. However, as a fanatical D’Arienzologist, I feel morally obliged to present a more… noisy counterweight from the same year (1941) soon.

Fellow worshippers of Hector Mauré ought not to despair, though, because my blog will definitely provide you with much more of this in the future.
