MILONGA DE MIS AMORES lyrics

LYRICS: José María Contursi
MUSIC: Pedro Laurenz


Oigo tu voz
engarzada en los acordes de una lírica guitarra...
Sos milonga de otros tiempos, yo te vi crecer
prendida en las polleras de un bailongo guapo y rompedor
como jamás ha de volver.
Nadie, tal vez,
comprendió mejor las penas y el sentir de mi barriada...
Sin embargo, te olvidaron y en el callejón
tan sólo una guitarra te recuerda, criolla como vos,
y en su gemir tiembla mi ser.

Vuelvo cansado de todo
y en mi corazón lloran los años,
mi vida busca tan sólo
la tranquilidad del viejo barrio.
Y encuentro todo cambiado menos tu canción,
milonga mía...
El progreso ha destrozado toda la emoción de mi arrabal.

Quiero olvidar,
y tus notas van llenando de tristeza el alma mía.
He cruzado tantas veces ese callejón
llevando entre los labios un silbido alegre y tu cantar
emborrachando el corazón.
Era feliz
entregado a las caricias de la única sincera
que acunó una primavera que no floreció.
Milonga, ya no puedo continuar, el llanto me venció!
Quiero olvidar, y pienso más!

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...
