Juanes, born Juan Estebán Aristizábal Vásquez (¡what a name!) is a Colombian guitarist, singer, songwriter and certified heart-throb. One of Latin America's most influential artists of the 21st Century, we can use his song Gotas de agua dulce to learn about some natural elements.

Some definitions:
Gotas - Drops
Agua - Water
Rayo de sol - Ray of sun
Luz - Light
Sombra - Shade

In this song, Juanes uses various elements figuratively to express his #Deep emotions and make romantic metaphors. When we contextualize the definitions, it becomes a lot easier to understand their significance.

Lo que yo siento por ti es amor
Ganas que me hacen útil el corazón
droga que me hace inmune ante el dolor
gotas de agua dulce rayo de sol.

Llévame, de ser preciso, por la semblanza de tu sombra
yo sé que tu prendes la luz y en mi vida te asomas
como las blancas palomas, cuando la plaza se toman
con vuelo inmortal.

Translation:
What I feel for you is love
Feelings that make my heart useful
Drug that makes me immune in the face of pain
Drops of sweet water, ray of sun

Bring me to be precious by the resemblance of your shade
I know you turn on a light and in my life you appear
Like the white pigeons when they crowd the plaza
With immortal flight

Practice with Juanes to get your nature vocab down AND to know how to be romantic in Spanish.
