Si eso me hace mala, pues diabla es lo quе soy
Nunca vas a poder cortar mis alas (Uh)
Y eso es lo quе te mata (Ah)
Pues eso ya pasó, esa ya no soy yo (Ah)
Por fin estoy feliz, mis días ya no son gris
Por fin me di cuenta que me merezco mucho más (Uh)
Y eso te mata (Te mata)"

And here’s the English translation:

"Well it is what it is, that's not me anymore (Ah)
If that makes me evil, thеn the devil is what I am
You will nevеr be able to cut my wings (Uh)
And that's what kills you (Ah)
Well it is what it is, that's not me anymore (Ah)
I'm finally happy, my days are no longer gray
I finally realized I deserve so much more (Uh)
And that kills you (It kills you)"
