LYRICS: Malfatti and Malfatti
MUSIC: Francisco Canaro

Veo en tus ojos la llama
Que va prendiendo el deseo
Pero en tus ojos no veo
La dulce llama de la ilusión

Si no sentís amor, ¿por qué
Mentís así? Decí por qué
Dejaste un gran dolor en mí
Porque ya en ti perdí la fe
No puedo comprender por qué
Deshice así mi vida
Y me pregunto yo el por qué te amé

No he mentido el amor, yo te he amado
En ti puse mi vida y mi fe
De tu amor yo jamás me he burlado
Siempre fiel mi cariño te fue
Yo no sé comprender tu desvío
Ni por qué el cariño que unía a los dos
Ahora muere de pena y hastío
Dejando vacío nuestro corazón

Nunca en mis ojos la llama
Pudiste ver del deseo
Porque en tus ojos me veo
Y en ellos arde la del amor

Si no sintiese amor ¿por qué
Mentir así? Decí por qué
No pienses que te miento así
Porque yo en ti puse mi fe
Será mi amor igual que ayer
Sos para mí, mi vida
Nunca he fingido en el amor, mujer

En tu amor yo jamás he creído
En ti puse mi vida y mi fe
De mi amor sin piedad te has reído
Siempre fiel mi cariño te fue
El mentir en amor es pecado
No hagas que el cariño que vive en los dos
Hoy se muera de pena y hastío
Dejando vacío nuestro corazón

Mentir en amor
Qué triste, señor
Cómo llena el alma
De angustia y dolor.

From Carole McCurdy: After that tanda, I found that every man I danced with that evening had something beautiful to offer, no matter their postural eccentricites or limitations of technique. In fact, their eccentricities and limitations were something to be respected and accorded a value, something that added rich flavor to the dance. If my partner is stiff as a board, well, it means that we begin the tanda by doing the 'stiff as a board' tango, which can offer some very creative moments of shared comedy, playing close to the edge of being off-balance. Whee-ha-ha. Maybe by the end of the tanda our dance will have expanded into something more soft and flexible and grounded, maybe not. The cortina has its own great value, after all.
I left the milonga that night feeling thrilled and humbled. How sorely I had underestimated these 'bad dancers,' how foolishly I had cheated myself out of the deeper pleasures of connecting in the dance. It wan't somebody else's fat ego getting in the way of dancing, it was my own.
Astrid responds: It works both ways. The great advantage (and burden) that women have in dancing the tango is that it enables them to experience a hundred different worlds, by dancing with different men and, if they are sensitive and intuitive enough, for a while becoming that man's creation to certain extent, for better or for worse...
It also works the other way round. One of the best dancers has told me that he dances in a different way with every woman, because she inspires him to do certain moves.
And the total is then always more than just the sum of its parts. Wish that in real life we also had some music to guide us to follow each other's steps...
