Song lyrics edit

Amor Prohibido (1994) edit

  • Con unas ansias locas quiero verte hoy
    Espero ese momento en que escuche tu voz
    Y cuando al fin estemos juntos los dos
    Qué importa qué dirán tu padre y tu mamá
    Aquí sólo importa nuestro amor, te quiero
    Amor prohibido murmuran por las calles
    Porque somos de distintas sociedades
    Amor prohibido nos dice todo el mundo
    El dinero no importa en ti y en mí, ni en el corazón
    Oh, oh baby.
  • Cada vez que lo veo pasar
    Mi corazón se enloquece
    Y me empieza a palpitar
    Y se emociona (y se emociona)
    Ya no razona
    No lo puedo controlar
    Y se emociona (y se emociona)
    Ya no razona
    Y me empieza a cantar (cantar)
    Me canta así así
    Bidi bidi bom bom (bidi bidi bom bom)
    Bidi bidi bom bom (bidi bidi bom bom)
    Bidi bidi bidi bidi bidi bom bom
    Bidi bidi bidi bidi bidi bom bom.

Dreaming of You (1995) edit

  • Late at night when all the world is sleeping
    I stay up and think of you
    And I wish on a star
    That somewhere you are
    Thinking of me too

    I'll be dreaming of you tonight
    'Till tomorrow
    I'll be holding you tight
    And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
    Than here in my room
    Dreaming about you and me

  • I could lose my heart tonight
    If you don't turn and walk away
    'Cause the way I feel I might
    Lose control and let you stay

    'Cause I could take you in my arms
    And never let go

    I could fall in love (in love) with you
    I could fall in love (in love) with you (with you baby)
