Amor con amor se paga

Amar sin fronteras es amar sin limites

Estar cerca de ti es estar lejos mio

Tu corazón es parte del mio Tu aliento mi exhalación, mi alma

Amor puede entrar todas formas y los tamaño,

no tienen los límites.

No puede ser tocado, pero siempre es sentía.

No puede ser visto, pero siempre es oído.

Y permanece no apenas por un día,

pero para una vida.

Cuándo nosotros somos aparte, oigo su voz

Cuándo nosotros somos juntos que yo me siento su toque

Cuándo yo le veo, yo veo mi amor

Y cuando hablo, hablo las palabras,

Te amo, te quiero.
