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.
