The line you’ll sing over and over: “Porque tú eres solo para mí, una mirada y ya caí, enamorado por primera vez.”

You’ll remember your first love and realize it HAD to end. If you’re singing along to the video, you’ll also be distracted by Enrique’s mole.

Loving your ex was the best feeling in the world, but now it just HURTS — almost as bad as listening to Justin Bieber’s songs — almost.

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Que triste todos dicen que soy, que siempre estoy hablando de ti. No saben que pensando en tu amor.”

The line you’ll sing over and over: “Ahora quien, si no soy yo, me miro y lloro en el espejo y me siento estúpido, ilógico.”

Don’t listen to this one if you don’t want to imagine them with someone else. Don’t do it. OK, fine. Torture yourself.
