And here are the lyrics:

Hoy en mi ventana
brilla el sol
Y el corazón se pone triste contemplando la ciudad
Porque te vas 
Today, at my window
the sun is shining
And the heart is getting sad, contemplating the city
Because you are leaving
Como cada noche desperté pensando en ti
Y en mi reloj todas las horas
vi passar
Porque te vas
Like each night, I woke up thinking of you
And in my watch , I saw all the hours pass by.
Because you are leaving
Todas las promessas de mi amor se irán contigo
Me olvidaras, me olvidaras
Junto a la estación lloraré igual que un nińo
Porque te vas,
porque te vas
All the promesses of my love will go with you
you will forget me, you will forget me
Next to the station I will cry like a child
Because you are leaving,
Because you are leaving
Bajo la penumbra de un farol se dormirán
Todas las cosas que quedaron por decir se dormirán
Junto a las manillas de un reloj esperarán
Todas las horas que quedaron por vivir esperarán
Under the dim light of a lantern, will sleep
All the things that are left unsaid, will sleep
Along with the handles of a watch, will wait
All the hours, left for living,
will wait.
