Amar y Querer/ Love and Want

por José José [English below]

 Casi todos sabemos querer
 Pero pocos sabemos amar
 Y es que amar y querer no es igual
 Amar es sufrir, querer es gozar 

 El que ama pretende servir
 El que ama su vida la da
 Y el que quiere pretende vivir
 Y nunca sufrir, y nunca sufrir 
 
 El que ama no puede pensar
 A todo lo da, a todo lo da
 El que quiere pretende olvidar
 Y nunca llorar, y nunca llorar 
 
 El Querer pronto puede acabar
 El Amor no conoce el final
 Es que todos sabemos querer...
 Pero pocos sabemos amar 
 
 El amar es el cielo y la luz
 El amar es total plenitud
 Es el mar que no tiene final
 Es la gloria y la paz
 Es la gloria y la paz
 
 El querer es la carne y la flor
 Es buscar el obscuro rincón
 Es morder, arañar y besar
 Es deseo fugaz, es deseo fugaz  
 
 El que ama no puede pensar
 A todo lo da, a todo lo da
 El que quiere pretende olvidar
 Y nunca llorar, y nunca llorar 

 El querer pronto puede acabar
 El amor no conoce el final
 Es que todos sabemos querer...
 Pero pocos sabemos amar 
 
 El que ama no puede pensar,
 A todo lo da, a todo lo da
 El que quiere pretende olvidar
 Y nunca llorar, y nunca llorar 
 
 El querer pronto puede acabar
 El amor no conoce el final
 Es que todos sabemos querer...
 Pero pocos sabemos amar... 

 Love and Want 
  
 Almost everyone knows how to Want
 But few know how to Love
 It's because Love and Want aren't the same
 Love is to suffer,
 Want is to enjoy 
 
 The one that Loves strives to serve
 The one that Loves gives his life
 And the one that Wants pretends to live
 And never suffer
 Never suffer
  
 The one that Loves cannot think
 He gives it all, he gives it all!
 And the one that Wants strives to forget
 And never cry, and never cry!
 The one that Wants can soon finish,
 The one that Loves knows no end
 And it's because we all know how to Want
 But few of us know how to Love
  
 The Love is the heaven and the light
 The Love is complete fullness
 It's the sea with no end
 It's the glory and peace,
 The glory and peace
  
 The Want is the flesh and the flower
 It's the search of the dark corner
 It's the bite, the clawing, and the kissing
 It's fleeting desire, fleeting desire
  
 The one that Loves cannot think,
 He gives it all, he gives it all!
 The one that Wants strives to forget and never cry
 And never cry!
 The one that Wants can soon finish,
 But Love knows no end
 And it's because well know how to Want...
 But few know how to Love
  
 The one that Loves cannot think, he gives it all
 He gives it all!
 The one that Wants strives to forget
 And never cry, and never cry!
 The one that Wants can soon finish
 But the one that Loves knows no end
  
 And it's because we all know how to Want...
 ...But few of us know how to Love...
