Tu Boca
Shakira Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Algo flota
En el aire
Como una premonición

Sabes que tu boca
Es el destino de mi piel
Y mi otra religión
Eso y tanto

Dame una señal
Me devora la espera, no calmes mi sed
Con el agua del mar

Que lo que no hace bien
Solo puede hacer mal, oh

Tu boca lo sabe
Cosa que toca
Cosa que arde

Me pides tanto
Que es imposible
Evitar la tentación

Eres una cosa
Irresistible
Y tu boca mi adicción

Eso y tanto

Me dejaré quemar
Por el fuego en tu risa
Oyendo el sonido de tu respirar

Que lo que no hace bien
Solo puede hacer mal

Tu boca lo sabe
Cosa que toca
Cosa que arde
No es culpa de nadie
Cosa que toca
Cosa que arde

Tu boca lo sabe
Cosa que toca
Cosa que arde
No es culpa de nadie




Cosa que toca
Cosa que arde

Overall Meaning

In the song Tu Boca, Shakira describes the power of temptation and sensuality through her lyrics. The opening lines, "Algo flota en el aire, como una premonición" (Something floats in the air, like a premonition), set the tone for the rest of the song, giving the sense that something magical is about to happen. She then goes on to say, "Sabes que tu boca es el destino de mi piel y mi otra religión" (You know that your mouth is the destiny of my skin and my other religion), expressing her desire and passion for this person's mouth. Shakira is mesmerized by this person's mouth, and it has become her addiction.


Throughout the song, Shakira refers to the power of temptation and how it can be impossible to resist. She says, "Me pides tanto que es imposible evitar la tentación" (You ask me for so much that it's impossible to avoid the temptation). She is seemingly torn between her desire and the fear of being burned by the fire of temptation. However, Shakira ultimately surrenders to the power of desire, saying "Me dejaré quemar por el fuego en tu risa" (I will let myself burn by the fire in your laughter) and claims that it's not anyone's fault that this passion ignites.


Overall, the song Tu Boca is a passionate and hypnotic tribute to the power of temptation and the allure of attraction.
