What are Bachata Songs About?

I often describe Bachata as love songs from the 90’s and early 2000’s…remember the boy bands? Backstreet Boys, N’Sync, Boyz II Men?

That’s Bachata! It’s a singer trying to win over the heart of another, to woo them but why not look at one popular Bachata song and show you the translations? Makes it way easier.

Prince Rouce – Darte un Beso ( To give you a kiss)

To Give You A Kiss Darte un beso
To love you like I love you is complicated Amarte como te amo es complicado
To think about you the way I think about you is a sin Pensar como te pienso es un pecado
To look at you the way I look at you is prohibited Mirar como te miro está prohibido
To touch you like I want is a crime Tocarte como quiero es un delito
I don’t know what to do anymore Ya no sé qué hacer
So you can be okay Para que estés bien
if i have to turn off the sun Si apagar el sol
to ignite your dawning para encender tu amanecer
Talk in Portuguese Falar en portugués
Learn to speak French Aprender a hablar francés
Or bring down the moon to your feet O bajar la luna hasta tus pies
I only want to give you a kiss Yo sólo quiero darte un beso
To gift you my tomorrows Y regalarte mis mañanas
To sing to calm your fears Cantar para calmar tus miedos
I don’t want you to miss anything Quiero que no te falte nada
