Love this song, but my Spanish is less than fluent, so I incorporated the English translation Linda Ronstadt used on the soundtrack to Mambo Kings.

Thanks for listening...

Hi Margie. Yep, you're right about that Snowbird reference.

You're likely to hear this played by a Mariachi Band in Mexico or... Well, you East Coasters have your own "Perfidia" experiences to relate and I hope you will. Talk amongst ya-selves!

Don't understand a word of Spanish so the English was a welcome addition.....

Loved the background noir......very stark and intriguing....

God Bless!

Well.. I must tell you it's a lovely sing, my friend.... Your Spanish sounds delightful. As for the lyrics, to answer your question, I think it would be better explained by giving you a LITERAL translation of the original lyrics, so you can judge for yourself how close (or not) the English lyrics come to the original. Here it is:
No one
understands how much I suffer
I sing,
for I cannot cry anymore;
Alone
and trembling with anxiety am I,
everyone
looks and me and turns away.

Woman
if you can speak with God
ask him if at any time
I have not adored you,
and (ask) the sea,
the mirror of my soul,
how many times it has seen me cry
(because of) the treachery of your love.

I have looked for you everywhere I go
and I cannot find you,
what to I want your kisses for
if your lips no longer want to kiss me?

And you,
who knows where you are?
who knows what adventures are you having?
since you’re so far away from me.

CORRECTION (TYPO):"Everybody looks AT me and...

BTW: PERFIDIA means treachery".

Thanks for the translation too, Sir Sherbert. Glad I flagged it for ya.
"What do I want your kisses for... if your lips no longer want to kiss me?"

That about sums it up.
