Shakira plays he role of a woman who is in pain over love and the fact that she has cried over her man too long. Alejandro Sanz, who sings on this with Shakira, plays the role of the regretful boyfriend who just wants her back. Both agree that this love hurts them - it's "torture." Shakira is telling him that she has cried over him too long and it would be best if they just said their goodbyes, while Alejandro won't let go and is expressing how he needs her in his life.

This song holds the record for longest run at #1 on the Hot Latin Songs. The cut led for 25 weeks in 2005.
The Spanish-language video was the first to air on MTV without an English-language version.
Did they really trade their guitarist to The Doobie Brothers? Are they named after something naughty? And what's up with the band name?
A band so baffling, even their names were contrived. Check your score in the Ramones version of Fact or Fiction.
