Me Gusta Cuando Callas - I Like For You To Be Still

Written by Pablo Neruda /Performed by Hektor Thillet ( Hektor Thillet / CC BY-NC 3.0)

Words in english:



I like for you to be still

It is as though you are absent
And you hear me from far away

And my voice does not touch you

It seems as though your eyes had flown away

And it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth

As all things are filled with my soul

You emerge from the things

Filled with my soul

You are like my soul

A butterfly of dream

And you are like the word: Melancholy


I like for you to be still

And you seem far away

It sounds as though you are lamenting

A butterfly cooing like a dove

And you hear me from far away

And my voice does not reach you

Let me come to be still in your silence

And let me talk to you with your silence

That is bright as a lamp

Simple, as a ring

You are like the night

With its stillness and constellations

Your silence is that of a star

As remote and candid


I like for you to be still

It is as though you are absent

Distant and full of sorrow

So you would have died

One word then, One smile is enough

And I am happy;

Happy that it’s not true
