LYRICS: Francisco Amor
MUSIC: Elías Wainer

Bebiendo paso la vida
de la mañana a la noche
me siento igual que un fantoche
frente a este alcohol homicida
que asesina mi razón.
Cansado con sed de olvido
en una eterna agonía
quiero olvidar la sombría
visión que todos los días
me llevara sin razón.

Me emborracharon de luz
en mi niñez mis pobres padres.
Me emborrachó de ilusión
la juventud con canto y baile.
Me emborrachó de placer
una mujer que fué mi vida,
y hoy que la siento perdida
se agranda mi herida
que nunca la olvida
ni con alcohol.

Tango Shoes

In tango, the relationship between lead and follower, man and woman, is so intense and all consuming, that there is simply no time for small talk. The last man I danced with, I know more intricately in many ways than his lover: I know that he perspires in a tiny spot above his brow; that when the dance slows and our connection is tight, his breathing almost stops; that when my leg sweeps his, he arches his neck imperceptibly upwards; that when another couple got too close he subconsciously enclosed me in a protective embrace; and that his hand rested so delicately on the flesh of my back. Yet all I know about him are his name and his country of origin. Small talk is a luxury not afforded to us tango addicts. - Anastasia Demaggio
