Con los años que me quedan & If We Were Lovers
"Con Los Años Que Me Quedan" and "If We Were Lovers" share the same melody but were written as two separate songs. They are not meant to be translations of each other, rather songs celebrating two different aspects of love – one being the renewal for "eternal" love and the other being the inevitable sensual and passionate love affair.
