Bailando

Future Sunsets did a cover of Bailando by Enrique Iglesias. Seeing as it's all in Spanish & I barely know any Spanish, I have no idea what the song is about. I was hoping some Spanish duolingoers would help me out and shed some light on the lyrics. Thanks! :)

I started listening to this song about a month ago when I knew almost no Spanish. I've heard it about 100 times now. I understand almost every word now.

That's great :D I'm planning on doing the Spanish tree in summer, so hopefully some day I'll listen to the song and understand it :)

Hello Tasha, I'm sure that I'll have a lot of mistakes (I'm a native spanish speaker) but the song says something like that:

"Yo te miro, se me corta la respiración/ (I see you and my breathing stops) /Cuando tú me miras se me sube el corazón/ (When I see you my heart rises up) /(Me palpita lento el corazón)/ (My heart beats slowly) /Y en silencio tu mirada dice mil palabras/(In the silence your gaze says a thousand of words)/ La noche en la que suplico que no salga el sol"/ (The night which I beg that the sun doesn't come up)

(Bailando, bailando, bailando, bailando)/ (Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing/ Tu cuerpo y el mío llenando el vacío/ (Your body and mine filling the emptiness)/ Subiendo y bajando (subiendo y bajando)/ ( Going up and down )/ (Bailando, bailando, bailando, bailando)/(Dancing..)/ Ese fuego por dentro me va enloqueciendo /( That fire that is driving me crazy inside of me)/ Me va saturando/ (It's filling me up)

Con tu física y tu química también tu anatomía/ (Together your physics and your chemistry and also your anatomy) /La cerveza y el tequila y tu boca con la mía/ ( beer, tequila and your mouth with my mouth )/ Ya no puedo más (ya no puedo más) Ya no puedo más (ya no puedo más)/ (I can wait no longer (I can't), I can wait no longer (I can't))/ Con esta melodía, tu color, tu fantasía/ (Along with this tune, your color, your fantasy)/ Con tu filosofía mi cabeza está vacía/ (My head is empty with your philosophy) /Y ya no puedo más (ya no puedo más)/ (I can wait no longer (I can't))/ Ya no puedo más (ya no puedo más)/ (I can wait no longer (I can't))

Yo quiero estar contigo, vivir contigo /(I want to be with you, living with you)/ Bailar contigo, tener contigo/ (Dancing with you, having with you...)/ Una noche loca (una noche loca) / (...A crazy night (a crazy night))/ Ay, besar tu boca ( besar tu boca)/ (Oh, kissing your mouth (kissing your mouth))/ Yo quiero estar contigo, vivir contigo/ (I want to be with you, living with you)/ Bailar contigo, tener contigo una noche loca/( Dancing with you, having with you a crazy night)/ Con tremenda nota/ (Along with that tremendous musical note/ (Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh, ooooh)

Tú me miras y me llevas a otra dimensión/ (When you look at me you're sending me to another dimension)

(Estoy en otra dimensión)/( I'm in another dimension)/ Tus latidos aceleran a mi corazón /(Your heart beats accelerate my heart)/(Tus latidos aceleran a mi corazón)/ ((Your heart beats accelerate my heart))/ Que ironía del destino no poder tocarte/( Not touching you is an irony of fate)/ Abrazarte y sentir la magia de tu olor/( Holding you and feeling the magic of your odor)

(Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh, ooooh Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh, ooooh Ooooh bailando amor ooooh /(Ooooh, dancing my love, oooh)/ Bailando amor ooooh es que se me va el dolor/( My pain disappears only when I dance)

I'm not familiar with this song, but does anyone remember Iglesias' song "Bailamos" from the 90's? I was still a relative beginner at the language back then, but the song was mainly in English anyway. Kind of strange that 20 years later he releases a (different?) song whose name is just a different conjugation of the first.
