[Enrique:]
I don't know why you wanna follow me tonight
When the rest of the world
With whom I've crossed and I've quarreled.
[Nâdiya:]
Laisse-toi tomber pour mieux renaître et être aimé.
Tu cherches une histoire à sauver sans plus chercher à t'excuser.
[Enrique & Nâdiya:]
Beneath the silver moon.

[Enrique:]
Maybe you were right but baby I was lonely.
[Nâdiya:]
Quand ton coeur éclate, laisse le destin l'emporter.

Ose le meilleur, élève-toi sans avoir peur.
[Enrique:]
We're all bloodless and blind and longing for a life.
[Enrique & Nâdiya:]
Beyond the silver moon.

[Enrique:]
Maybe you were right but baby I was lonely.
[Nâdiya:]
Quand ton coeur éclate, laisse le destin l'emporter.
[Enrique:]
I'm standing in the street, crying out for you.
[Nâdiya:]
À toi d'exister, seul face à la nuit.

[Enrique:]
So far away
[Nâdiya:]
À tout jamais.
[Enrique:]
I've trashed myself, I've lost my way, I've got to get to you.
[Nâdiya:]
Je serai là pour nous.

[Enrique:]
Maybe you were right but baby I was lonely.
[Nâdiya:]
Quand ton coeur éclate, laisse le destin l'emporter.
[Enrique:]
I'm standing in the street, crying out for you.
[Nâdiya:]
À toi d'exister, seul face à la nuit.

[Enrique:]
Maybe you were right but baby I was lonely.
[Nâdiya:]
Quand ton coeur éclate, laisse le destin l'emporter.
[Enrique:]
I'm standing in the street, crying out for you.
[Nâdiya:]
À toi d'exister, seul face à la nuit.
À toi d'exister, seul face à la nuit.

Song facts

"Tired of Being Sorry (Laisse le destin l'emporter)" is a version of "Tired of Being Sorry" which was recorded as a duet with French singer Nâdiya. The song was released in France in April 2008. Both artists decided to re-record the song together because they had the same record label at the time. Iglesias also recorded a Spanish version of the song called "Amigo Vulnerable".

Another video has been shot for the French version "Tired of Being Sorry (Laisse le destin l'emporter)".

The song received generally positive reviews. For example, Musiqueradio.com website elected the duet version as the "song of the year" and deemed it was a "historical duet". Iglesias and Nâdiya were nominated for the 2009 NRJ Music Awards in the categories 'French group / duet / troupe of the year' and 'French song of the year', but they did not win.

According to Charts in France website, over 300,000 copies of the single were sold in France. In September 2008, SNEP revealed that the song was the best-selling single and the number 12 best-downloaded song of the first six months of 2008, and eventually the best-selling single of the year.
