La Tortura, Music Video by Shakira…
*Shakira pronounces the LL as the J In the English word Joy
* Y is also prounouced the same as the LL
*Pa‘ is short for Para often used in songs.
My Spanish is far from perfect but it would seem the song is about a man (the Alejandro guy) who left and/or cheated on his gf (shakira) and is now coming back asking forgiveness and wanting to get back together. In the chorus basically he says I know I haven’t been a saint, but I can fix it. She says a man can’t live on just bread and I can’t live on excuses. He says we only learn from mistakes, and that now he knows she has his heart. She says better save that bone for another dog and we’ll say goodbye.
