Thread Name: Lyr Req: After the Fire Is Gone - Spanish lyrics
Subject: Lyr Req: 2 translations into Spanish (not Babelfi
Listening to Freddy Fender--2 songs with some Spanish translations of well-known country songs. I've got part of each but can't figure out the missing words. The translations are not necessarily exact--just Spanish approximations of the general meaning

After the Fire Is Gone


Love is where you find it
When you find no love at home
And there's nothing cold as ashes
After the fire is gone


Cuando no hay ---   --- -- (3 words?)
Y no se puede encontrar (I think)
Cuando no hay amor en casa
Lo buscamos donde esta.

Wild Side of Life

Spanish is not a direct translation of any part of the song

Tu sabes que te quiero y    ----- ----- (2 words?)
Tu sabes que yo sufro por tu amor
Pero tu ---- ----- (2 words?) en las cantinas
Y yo me estoy muriendo de dolor   

Basically I'm looking for a good Spanish expression of these verses and I'm pretty sure I have a good number of the words already--just need Spanish to finish.

Any ideas?
