Lyrics

Cuando me muera, cómo te agradecería

Que pusieras en mi tumba dos botellas de mezcal

Porque sé que he de morirme de una cruda

Sabes bien que es culpa tuya, por no poderte olvidar

 

Todas las noches, cuando agarro la botella

Yo te miro dentro de ella y me pongo a platicar

Al rato siento que me abrazas y me aprietas

Cual si fuera cosa cierta, te amo y te amo y no es verdad

 

Cuando al fin vuelvo de mis locos pensamientos

Empiezan los sufrimientos porque te busco y no estás

De mis ojos, empieza brotar el llanto

Porque yo te quiero tanto y no lo puedo evitar

 

Todas las noches, cuando agarro la botella

Yo te miro dentro de ella y me pongo a platicar

Al rato siento que me abrazas y me aprietas

Cual si fuera cosa cierta, te amo y te amo y no es verdad

 

Cuando al fin vuelvo de mis locos pensamientos

Empiezan los sufrimientos porque te busco y no estás

De mis ojos, empieza brotar el llanto

Porque yo te quiero tanto y no lo puedo evitar
