These Touching Camila Lyrics Will Make You Weep In Emotional Spanish

The music industry is full of rocky paths, and for a band to subsist for more than a decade is no easy task. The Mexican band Camila was founded in 2005 by Mario Domm, Pablo Hurtado and the musician known as Samo, who left in 2013. Camila is known for its deep and powerful lyrics about love and loss, which has led them to collaborate with the crème de la crème of Spanish-language and Anglo pop music, including Colbie Caillat, Kenny G, Alejandro Sanz, Alejandra Guzman, Reyli, Chambao, Aleks Syntek and more recently the Mexican duo Sin Bandera. 

Behind Camila’s success is a profound love for music. Mario Domm plays multiple instruments such as drums, piano, guitar, and bass, and is known for being super energetic onstage. Pablo Hurtado has played the piano since he was five years old, and like many great rockstars (think Keith Richards!) has experimented with genres like jazz and blues, which are pretty much the forefathers of rock. 

Behind the complex soundscapes that Camila produces there is a dark but enjoyable artistic sensibility that nos pone la piel chinita. Here’s some of their most intense lyrics. 

1. “Llévate los restos de abril
Llévate los besos que jamás te di.
Los segundos de mi reloj,
y este corazón roto en dos”
From: the song “Restos de Abril” in the album Dejarte de amar (2010)
The perfect medicine for: un corazón roto

Camila’s frontmen can sure write out of romantic spite… and this song shows it! 

2. “Llegas cuando estoy a punto de olvidarte
Busca tu camino en otra parte
Mientras busco el tiempo que perdí
Hoy estoy mejor sin ti”
From: the song “Mientes” in the album Dejarte de amar (2010)
The perfect medicine for: being strong and finally let someone go

This song is as much about self-care as it is about being very, very ardido about not being chosen by someone. 

3. “sentí que el amor murió
yo sólo fui un error
y aunque muero por volver, me voy”
From: the song “Me voy” in the album Dejarte de amar (2010)
The perfect medicine for: finally accepting that he/she was just not into you

There comes a time in any person’s life when life just tells you to pack up your things and go, and Camilia knows it. 

4. “Tú, coleccionista de canciones
dame razones para vivir
tú la dueña de mis sueños
quédate en ellos y hazme sentir
y así en tu misterio poder descubrir
el sentimiento eterno”
From: the song “Coleccionista de canciones” in the album Todo cambió (2006)
The perfect medicine for: thinking about your muse

Every songwriter needs a muse, and this song is an ode to those who bring inspiration. 

5. “No me importa donde estás
con quien sales, con quien vas ya me da igual
si no quieres verme más
hazte a un lado
pero ya no me dañes más”
From: the song “Me da igual” in the album Todo cambió (2006)
The perfect medicine for: breaking someone’s spell over you

This song is as sad as it gets: what do you deal with being in love with someone you know will only bring tribulation and pain? 

6. “No había más que decir
Había llegado el fin
Hacia dos años ya
Que no me la encontraba

Estaba aprendiendo como vivir
Ya de ti me olvidaba cuando te vi.
Con la mirada desesperada”
From: the song “Perderte de nuevo” in the album Todo cambió (2006)
The perfect medicine for: when you unexpectedly bump into your ex, ay no!

For someone who is just getting over a lost love, the worst case scenario is bumping into that person. This song is all about that dreaded moment in which you see that face that you have imagined for endless nights. 

7. “Si la verdad te ofende
Si te digo lo que siento y lo que mi alma no se atreve
Es porque te quiero que te quiero hablar de frente
Prefiero hoy herirte y no lo que hacen todos
Mentirte”
From: the song “Te confieso” (2019)
The perfect medicine for: being honest

Credit: camilamx / Instagram

This song exists because there is a moment when there is no more time for dancing around the facts: if you don’t really love someone, then say it as hurtful as it can be. 

8. “Me envenenaste el silencio
Se fue mi aire detrás de ti
Me arrebataste hasta el suelo
Tiraste y me rompí”
From: the song “Decidiste dejarme” in the album Elypse (2014)
The perfect medicine for: dealing with the anger that sometimes comes after a heartbreak

This song is ideal for that moment of self-pity in which you know someone te tiene de un ala. When the song is over, however, pick yourself together and para adelante

9. “Llegas para anhelar
Una misma dirección
Dos gotas de lluvia
Que cambian el mismo cielo”
From: the song “De Venus” from the album Elypse (2014)
The perfect medicine for: enjoying falling in love

Sometimes love does happen, so when the miracle presents itself just close your eyes and embrace it. 

10. “Antes que pase más tiempo contigo, amor
Tengo que decir que eres el amor de mi vida
Antes que te ame más, escucha por favor
Déjame decir que todo te di
Y no hay cómo explicar pero menos dudar
Simplemente así lo sentí, cuando te vi”
From: the song “Todo cambió” in the album Todo cambió (2006)
The perfect medicine for: agarrar el valor to say what you feel

You never know what will happen in a relationship, so if you think someone is el amor de tu vida, then spell it out bravely and truthfully! 

11. “Adicto al dolor,
Tu exceso de frío y de calor,
Me están destruyendo,
Me estás convirtiendo,
En algo que yo no soy.
No vuelvo a sentir,
Despiertas la peor versión de mi,
Me miento y me juro,
Me enfermo y me curo,
Que obscuro mi amor por ti.
Por ti.”
From: the song “Adicto al dolor” in the album Elypse (2014)
The perfect medicine for: dealing with the realization that you just can’t get over someone

The line that separates love and obsession is thin, and this song deals with how infatuation can lead us down a dark path. 

12. “Deje mi país
Mis pasos y mi gente
Solamente
Quise seguirte y amarte
Y muy tarde entendí
Que para conocerte
Faltan vidas”
From: the song “Lágrimas” in the album Elypse (2014)
The perfect medicine for: being homesick and in love, the perfect emotionak storm

Being a migrant is an experience shared by millions around the world, and in this song homesickness is equalled to romantic love. They are both full of longing and nostalgia. 

13. “Con los ojos cerrados te seguí
Si yo busque dolor lo conseguí
No eres la persona que pensé
Que creí y que perdí”
From: the song “Mientes” in the album Dejarte de amar (2010)
The perfect medicine for: when the person you fall for is not who you think they were

Credit: camilamx / Instagram

Do you fall in love with a person or with the idea of a person? Sometimes the two don’t match! 

14. “Sabe amarga la verdad
O el invierno en la cuidad
Que sin ti se cubre de hielo
Yo he venido por aquí
Alguien te arranco de mí
O talvez soñaba despierto
Dices que este amor fue un momento
Un beso que no existió
Mientras tú me olvidas
Yo intento
Prenderme a tu corazón”
From: the song “Nada” in the album Dejarte de amar (2010)
The perfect medicine for: good old-fashioned decepción romántica

Credit: camilamx / Instagram

Once things are over you become a ghost in the other person’s past, and vice versa. Duele, pero es verdad

15. “Llévate tu piel y el dolor,
Llévate tu nombre lejos de mi voz
Déjame el silencio que aquí,
cada historia me habla de ti”
From: the song “Restos de abril” in the album Dejarte de amar (2010)
The perfect medicine for: telling someone to just leave you alone and take their pain away

Another great line from “Restos de abril”. How to forget someone if that person just won’t let you go? This is a plea for some peace and quite in the midst of a romantic hurricane.
