The Meaning Behind The Song: Siempre Hace Frío by Selena
As a DJ, I have come across countless songs throughout my career that have sparked emotions and touched the hearts of listeners. One such song is “Siempre Hace Frío” by Selena. This beautiful track has a deep meaning that resonates with anyone who has experienced heartbreak and longing. Today, I want to delve into the lyrics of this iconic song and share its significance with you.
The opening lines of “Siempre Hace Frío” immediately set the tone for the rest of the song. Selena sings, “Este corazón, que aun te quiere, Ya está muriendo, tarde con tarde.” Translated to English, these lyrics mean, “This heart, which still loves you, is dying, day by day.” These words beautifully depict the pain and desperation felt when love is lost, and one’s heart continues to yearn for their former partner.
When I first heard this song on a late-night drive, I couldn’t help but be captivated by Selena’s passionate delivery and the raw emotions conveyed through her voice. It is as if she is baring her soul, allowing listeners to connect with her on a deeply emotional level.
The chorus of “Siempre Hace Frío” further emphasizes the longing and desperation the narrator feels. Selena sings, “Adónde estás? Mátame cielo, trágame tierra, Quiero morirme si no vuelve más.” These powerful lines translate to, “Where are you? Heaven, kill me, earth, swallow me, I want to die if you don’t come back.” These lyrics vividly portray the intense desire to be reunited with a lost love, even if it means risking one’s own well-being.
This part of the song evokes nostalgia and heartbreak, reminding us of the pain we might have felt when someone we deeply cared for walked away from our lives. Selena’s heartfelt delivery makes it impossible not to feel the emotional weight behind these words.
In the second verse, Selena sings, “Ya podrás tener el mundo entero, Y entre tus manos toda la dicha. Pero ya verás, que todo acaba, Y al verte solo, cómo hoy me siento. Siempre hace frío.” These lines translate to, “You may now have the whole world, and all the happiness in your hands. But you will see, everything comes to an end, and when you are alone, I feel how cold it is. It is always cold.”
These lyrics depict the narrator’s realization that material possessions and new relationships cannot replace the love and connection they once had. The bitterness of the last line, “Siempre hace frío” (“It is always cold”), encapsulates the lasting emptiness and loneliness that remains even after moving on.
Listening to “Siempre Hace Frío” by Selena brings back memories of lost love and the pain that accompanies it. The raw emotion and vulnerability in Selena’s voice make this song a timeless masterpiece that continues to resonate with listeners years after its release. Whether you have personally experienced heartbreak or not, the universal theme of longing and the evocative lyrics of this song make it a powerful and emotional journey for anyone who listens.
Next time you find yourself in need of a heartfelt ballad, give “Siempre Hace Frío” a listen, and let it take you on a journey through the depths of human emotions.
