Part 1 – Chorus – Part 2 – Chorus
Estás desorientado y no sabés
Qué “trole” hay que tomar para seguir.
Y en este desencuentro con la fe
Querés cruzar el mar y no podés.
La araña que salvaste te picó
¡qué vas a hacer!
Y el hombre que ayudaste te hizo mal
¡dale nomás! Y todo el carnaval
La mano fraternal
Que Dios te dio.
¡Si hasta Dios está lejano!
Llorás por dentro,
Todo es cuento, todo es vil.
En el corso a contramano
Un grupí trampeó a Jesús…
No te fíes ni de tu hermano,
Se te cuelgan de la cruz…
Quisiste con ternura, y el amor
Te devoró de atrás hasta el riñón.
Se rieron de tu abrazo y ahí nomás
Te hundieron con rencor todo el arpón
Amargo desencuentro, porque ves
Que es al revés…
Creiste en la honradez
Y en la moral…
¡qué estupidez! Por eso en tu total
Fracaso de vivir,
Ni el tiro del final
Te va a salir.
Desencuentro is a tango composed in 1962 by Aníbal Troilo (music) and Cátulo Castillo (lyrics). It became a hit after the interpretation of the famous Roberto Goyeneche (called El Polaco) a few years later.
This tremendous tango has a very rich melody and very beautiful lyrics. It is about a disoriented man, lost and adrift. He missed his appointment with God, or rather with destiny, and wanders in a dark world that seems meaningless.
Castillo reveals to us the absurdity of life: a man who walks, believing the good, and, as he falls, continues to fall. Until the final shot that will not yet come out, leaving him hesitating on an eternal path, a world without a script, without morals or justice.
