Te Mata Lyrics (English)

[Verse 1: Kali Uchis]
I, who am the devil of your story
The one who knew that to fly, I'd have to find my own wings
And I kept that pain inside my soul (With calm)
The one who stayed as if nothing with all your mistreatment
(As if nothing always)
And I allowed your actions, they hurt me like bullets (Like bullets)
The one who cried herself to sleep and woke up to continue the nightmare

[Chorus: Kali Uchis]
Well, that's in the past, I'm not that person anymore (Ah)
If that makes me bad, then devil is what I am
You'll never be able to cut my wings (Uh)
And that's what kills you (Ah)
Well, that's in the past, I'm not that person anymore (Ah)
Finally, I am happy, my days are no longer gray
I finally realized that I deserve much more (Uh)
And that kills you (It kills you)

[Verse 2: Kali Uchis]
You have to accept that I'm just a memory now
If you're looking for someone to blame, look in the mirror
You never really knew me, remember it wasn't worth it
(You never really knew me, even less now)
It's time to understand, you have nothing to do with me
And there's nothing more to talk about, I've tried
It's best we leave the past right where it is
I don't live in the past (And this part is danced really close)

[Bridge: Kali Uchis]
I'm with someone who makes me happy
Loves me as I am, makes me laugh
So just let me be
I'll never give you what you want from me (Uh)
La-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la

[Chorus: Kali Uchis]
Well, that's in the past, I'm not that person anymore
(I'm not that person anymore)
If that makes me bad, then devil is what I am
(Devil is what I am)
You'll never be able to cut my wings (My wings)
And that's what kills you (Kills you, kills you, kills you)
Well, that's in the past, I'm not that person anymore (Uh)
Finally, I am happy, my days are no longer gray (Uh)
I finally realized that I deserve much more
And that kills you (It kills you)
