Guadalupe Pineda with Los Tres Ases – Historia De Un Amor

Famous Mexican singer Guadalupe Pineda and Mexican music trio Los Tres Ases (The Three Aces) sings “Historia De Un Amor” (English: a love story), a song by Panamanian songwriter Carlos Eleta Almarán.

It is a very sad song. It was written after the death of Almarán’s brother’s wife. The song tells of a man’s suffering after his love has disappeared. It may be interpreted that love is a story for a woman but it’s just an episode for a man.

The song was part of the soundtrack of a 1956 Mexican movie of the same name starring Libertad Lamarque. Turkish/Italian film director Ferzan Özpetek also used Guadalupe Pineda with Los Tres Ases version (the version above) in his 2003 movie “La Finestra di fronte” (Facing Windows).

Lyrics

Historia de un amor

Ya no estas mas a mi lado corazon,
Y en el alma solo tengo soledad,
Y si ya no puedo verte,
Porque dios mi hiso quererte,
Para hacerme sufrir mas.

Siempre fuistes la razon de mi existir,
Adorarte para mi fue religion,
En tus besos encontraba,
El calor que me brindabas,
El amor y la pasion.

Es la historia de un amor,
Como no hay otro igual,
Que me hiso comprender,
Todo el bien, todo el mal.

Que le dio luz a mi vida,
Apagandola despues,
Ay! que noche tan obscura,
Sin tu amor no vivire.

Ya no estas mas a mi lado corazon,
Y en el alma solo tengo soledad,
Y si ya no puedo verte,
Porque dios mi hiso quererte,
Para hacerme sufrir mas.

Es la historia de un amor,
Como no hay otro igual,
Que me hiso comprender,
Todo el bien, todo el mal.

Que le dio luz a mi vida,
Apagandola despues,
Ay! que noche tan obscura,
Sin tu amor no vivire.

Ya no estas mas a mi lado corazon,
Y en el alma solo tengo soledad,
Y si ya no puedo verte,
Porque dios mi hiso quererte,
Para hacerme sufrir mas, sufrir mas, sufrir mas…

A Love Story (English translation)

You’re by my side no more, my love
and in my soul all I’ve left is loneliness
and if I can’t see you anymore
why did God make me love you
just to make me suffer more?

You were always my reason to exist
to worship you was my religion
In your kisses I could find
the warmth you gave to me
the love and passion

This is a love story
there’s no other that’s the same
and it made me understand
all that is good, all that is bad.

It brought light into my life
just to extinguish said light later
Alas! What a dark night
without your love I won’t survive

You’re by my side no more, my love
and in my soul all I’ve left is loneliness
and if I can’t see you anymore
why did God make me love you
just to make me suffer more?

This is a love story
there’s no other that’s the same
and it made me understand
all that is good, all that is bad.

It brought light into my life
just to extinguish said light later
Alas! What a dark night
without your love I won’t survive

You’re by my side no more, my love
and in my soul all I’ve left is loneliness
and if I can’t see you anymore
why did God make me love you
just to make me suffer more… suffer more… suffer more
