"Con los años que me quedan" ("With The Years I Have Left") is a song by Gloria Estefan composed by Emilio Estefan Jr., released as her second single from her first Spanish album Mi Tierra.

Song history[edit]

A song inspired by the relationship between Gloria Estefan and Emilio Estefan Jr., became her second consecutive number 1 single in the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart. The track debuted at number 28 on September 28, 1993 and peaked at number 1 on November 13, 1993[1] spending 4 weeks in pole position. An English version was also recorded entitled "If We Were Lovers" and is included on the international pressiong of the maxi-single.

The English version of the song "If We Were Lovers" was released as a single in Europe, making it a moderate hit reaching the Top 40 chart at the UK, becoming the second single from this album to chart in the country.

Con los años que me quedan & If We Were Lovers[edit]

"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.[2]
