lyrics

SWAY / QUIEN SERA

When marimba rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like a lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more

Like a flower bending in the breeze
Bend with me, sway with ease
When we dance you have a way with me
Stay with me, sway with me

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have that magic technique
When we sway I go weak

I can hear the sounds of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now

Quien será la que me quiera a mi?
Quien será, quien será?
Quien será la que me dé su amor?
Quien será, quien será?

Yo no sé si la podré encontrar
Yo no sé, yo sé
Yo no sé si volveré a querer
Yo no sé, yo no sé

He querido volver a vivir
La pasión y el calor de otro amor
De otro amor que me hiciera sentir
Que me hiciera feliz como ayer lo fui

Ay quien será la que me quiera a mi?
Quien será, quien será?
Quien será la que me dé su amor?
Quien será, quien será?
