YA ESTAMOS IGUALES lyrics

LYRICS: Francisco García Jiménez
MUSIC: Anselmo Alfredo Aieta


Mi noche es tu noche, mi llanto tu llanto,
mi infierno tu infierno.
Nos tuerce en sus nudos el mismo quebranto
profundo y eterno.
Es cierto que un día, tu boca, la falsa, de mí se reía;
pero hoy otra risa más cruel y más fría se rie de ti...
Se ríe la vida, que cobra a la larga las malas andanzas;
que agranda la herida, que rompe y amarga,
que ahoga esperanzas;
que a ti, que buscabas la dicha en alturas que yo no alcanzaba,
así arepentida de aquella aventura te tira ante mí.

Mi noche es tu noche. Mi llanto tu llanto.
Creíste que habías matado el pasado de un tajo feroz,
y no estaba muerto, y se alza en su tumba.
Te está señalando, te nombra, te acusa con toda su voz.
Te roba la calma, te cubre de duelo,
te niega el olvido, te grita en tu horror.
Belleza sin alma, estatua de hielo,
por treinta dineros vendiste al amor...

Ya estamos iguales. Ya en ti roncos ecos
tendrán mis lamentos.
Te clavan el pecho los siete puñales
del remordimiento.
Y sé que quisieras, con estos despojos de viejas quimeras,
rehacer el romance de las primaveras que no vuelven más...
inútil empeño. Si soy un vencido, sin ansias ni sueños,
y tú una grotesca pasión trasnochada
de farsa burlesca...
Ya no hay más que sombras. Aguanta la pena. Soporta el quebranto
y lava con llanto la culpa tremenda... si sabes llorar.

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...
