Yo adivino el parpadeo
De las luces que a lo lejos
Van marcando mi retorno
Son las mismas que alumbraron
Con sus pálidos reflejos
Hondas horas de dolor

Y aunque no quise el regreso
Siempre se vuelve al primer amor
La vieja calle donde el eco dijo
Tuya es su vida, tuyo es su querer
Bajo el burlón mirar de las estrellas
Que con indiferencia hoy me ven volver

Volver con la frente marchita
Las nieves del tiempo platearon mi sien
Sentir que es un soplo la vida
Que veinte años no es nada
Que febril la mirada, errante en las sombras
Te busca y te nombra
Vivir con el alma aferrada
A un dulce recuerdo
Que lloro otra vez

Tengo miedo del encuentro
Con el pasado que vuelve
A enfrentarse con mi vida
Tengo miedo de las noches
Que pobladas de recuerdos
Encadenan mi soñar

Pero el viajero que huye
Tarde o temprano detiene su andar
Y aunque el olvido, que todo destruye
Haya matado mi vieja ilusión
Guardo escondida una esperanza humilde
Que es toda la fortuna de mi corazón

Volver con la frente marchita
Las nieves del tiempo platearon mi sien
Sentir que es un soplo la vida
Que veinte años no es nada
Que febril la mirada, errante en las sombras
Te busca y te nombra
Vivir con el alma aferrada
A un dulce recuerdo
Que lloro otra vez

Carlos Gardel

Carlos Gardel (born Charles Romuald Gardes; 11 December 1890 – 24 June 1935) was a singer, songwriter, composer and actor, and is perhaps the most prominent figure in the history of tango. The unerring musicality of Gardel's baritone voice and the dramatic phrasing of his lyrics made miniature masterpieces of his hundreds of three-minute tango recordings. Together with lyricist and long-time collaborator Alfredo Le Pera, Gardel wrote several classic tangos. more »
