De Un Mundo Raro
Julio Iglesias Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Cuando te hablen de amor
Y de ilusiones
Y te ofrezcan un sol
Y un cielo entero
Si te acuerdas de mí
No me menciones
Porque vas a sentir
Amor del bueno

Y si quieren saber
De tu pasado
Es preciso decir una mentira
Dí que vienes de allá
De un mundo raro
Que no sabes llorar
Que no entiendes de amor
Y que nunca has amado

Porque yo a donde voy
Hablaré de tu amor
Como un sueño dorado
Y olvidando el rencor
No diré que tu adiós
Me volvio desgraciado
Y si quieren saber
De mi pasado

Es preciso decir otra mentira
Les diré que llegué
De un mundo raro
Que no sé del dolor
Que triunfé en el amor



Y que nunca he llorado
Yo, nunca he llorado

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Julio Iglesias’ song De Un Mundo Raro tell a story of a man who encourages his lover to forget about him if she ever hears talk of love and offers of a perfect life. He warns her not to mention him for fear that her good intentions may return to hurt her. He asks her to lie about her past and tell others that she comes from a strange world where love is unknown and crying is not understood. He urges her to do this so that she can move on with her life without any lingering memories of him.


The man then speaks of his own intentions for the future. He vows that wherever he goes, he will speak of his lover and her love for him like it was a beautiful dream. He assures her that he will forget about any resentment he may have felt towards her for leaving him and will not reveal to others that her departure made him miserable. Instead, he will tell them that he comes from his own strange world where pain is unfamiliar, he has succeeded in love, and he has never shed a tear. Overall, the song is a passionate plea to forget the past, move on, and start anew, even if that means creating an alternate reality.

Me encanta esta canción con su creador el maestro José Alfredo, pero no cabe duda que Julio le dio un toque muy especial de romanticismo
