Nelly Furtado- Te Busque Lyrics

A couple of years ago I did the Anggun Lyrics Project (where I wrote out the lyrics for songs from the English version of her album Elevation. I started a similar one with the French songs but didn't get very far! lol. However since I'm better with Spanish than French I decided to have a go at translating some Spanish lrics.

I've started out small with Canadian singer Nelly Furtado's Te Busque featuring Colombian singer Juanes. It appeared on Nelly's album Loose (2006) and was released as a single in 2007 although not in the UK, I don't think. Only the chorus is in Spanish. I found out that there is a full Spanish version though which I'm planning to listen to soon.

I wrote out the lyrics and also used and Google Translate. There are also lyrics in the video below (click on it to view it on YouTube). A couple of lines in the chorus aren't the best translation, so if you're a native or fluent Spanish speaker and have a better translation please let me know. :)

Te Busqué (I Searched For You)

Verse 1

I've been high, I've been low
I've been fast, I've been slow
I've had nowhere to go
Missed the bus, missed the show
I've been down on my luck
I've felt like giving up
My life locked in a trunk
When it hurt way too much
Needed a reason to live
Some love inside me to give
I couldn't rest, I had to keep on searching


Te busqué
I searched for you
Debajo de las piedras y no te encontré
Below the rocks and I didn't find you
En la mañana fría y en la noche
In the cold morning and night
Te busqué, hasta enloquecer
I searched for you until I went mad
Pero tú llegaste a mi vida como una luz
But you came into my life like a light
Sanando las heridas de mi corazón
Healing the wounds of my heart
Y haciéndome sentir vivo otra vez
And making me feel alive again

Verse 2

I've been too sad to speak
And too tired to eat
Been too lonely to sing
Devil cut off my wings
I've been hurt by my past
But I feel the future
In my dreams and at last
I wake-up, I'm not sure
I wanted to find a light
Something just didn't feel right
Needed an answer to end all my searching


Spoken part

I look in the mirror
The picture's getting clearer
I wanna be myself
But does the world really need her?
I ache for the earth
I stopped going to church
See God in the trees
Makes me fall on my knees
My depression keeps building
Like a cup overfilling
My heart's so rigid
I keep it in the frigid
It hurts so bad that I can't dry my eyes
Cos they keep on refilling with the tears that I cry

Chorus x3

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.

Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:



Brianna Jaramillo

Brianna is 18 and  lives in W…

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
