“Decidir” By Andrea Deleón Santos (Video)

Andrea Deleón Santos

A new Uruguayan pop artist, Andrea Deleón Santos issued “Bruja” [Witch] at the tail end of 2010. “Decidir” [Decide] was chosen as the first single from the album.

The song stands as a very lilting ballad, with a clean cut arrangement that gives Andrea’s voice a great chance to shine. The song is also well-devised in structural terms, and although personally I don’t like the middle eight that much the whole composition holds together undeniably well.

I hope to review “Bruja” sometime soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the official video for “Decidir” below. (Lyrics in Spanish and in English attached at the end of the post).

 

DECIDIR

No puedo comprender que más tengo que hacer
No puedo entender que estés pero no estés
No puedo descifrar tus claves para amar
Ya no quiero fingir no me quiero mentir

Un día prometiste
Volver
Pero nunca lo hiciste
Un día prometiste
Ceder
Pero te arrepentiste

Cuanto hay que esperar
Cuanto tiempo pasará
Para encontrar tu amor

Quisiera escapar y arrancarme el amor
Pasa siempre al revés y aparece el dolor
Si vas a decidir, no quiero solo un sí
Quiero un corazón dispuesto a ser feliz

Un día prometiste
Volver
Pero nunca lo hiciste
Un día prometiste
Ceder
Pero te arrepentiste

Cuánto hay que esperar
Cuánto tiempo pasará
Para encontrar tu amor

Dejé atrás el tiempo de hacer
Dejé todo lo que pudo ser
Ya no alcanza una explicación
Conocí tu verdadero yo

Ya no hay tiempo que contemplar
Ilusiones que alimentar
Ya no hay nada que pueda ser
Tus mentiras ya se dejan ver

Cuánto hay que esperar
Cuánto tiempo pasará
Para encontrar tu amor

DECIDE

I can’t understand what else I’ve got to do
I can’t understand you being and not being here
I can’t decipher your codes for loving
I don’t want to pretend, don’t want to tell myself more lies

One day you promised
You’d come back
But you never did it
One day you promised
You’d surrender
But you changed your mind

How long must I wait
How much time must go on
Before I can find your love

I wish I could escape and throw my love away
But it never works out and pain is what comes up
If you’re going to decide, I want more than a “Yes”
I want a heart willing to be happy

One day you promised
You’d come back
But you never did it
One day you promised
You’d surrender
But you changed your mind

I left the time to do things behind
I left all that could’ve been behind
No explanations would suffice
I got to know your true self

There’s no more time to contemplate
Or illusions to thrive
There’s nothing that could come to be
Your lies are on your sleeve

How long must I wait
How much time must go on
Before I can find your love
