IT LATER BECAME A BI-LINGUAL SONG THAT SHOT IT TO THE TOP OF THE CHARTS.
Born to lose, I've lived my life in vain,
Every dream has only brought me pain.
All my life I've always been so blue,
Born to lose and now I'm losing you.

Solamente para perder nací,
Cada sueño en vano fue de tí.
Tanto que yo sufrí por tu querer,
Solamente para perder nací.

Born to lose, it seems so hard to bear,
And I wait at night, and you're not there .
You've grown cold and now you say we're through,
Born to lose and now I'm losing you.
THANKS, CHARLES!
