    Default Ayudame por favor!

    Hi,
    I've just started learning spanish, and i need your help for a word that i'm curious about.
    The word "sea".

    Where does it cone from?
    What does it mean?
    Where is it used?

    For example in a Juanes song:
    "que si me muero sea de amor "
    "y si me enamoro sea de vos "

    Gracias in advance mis amigos!

    Sea comes from the verb SER, this is a conjugation for the subjunctive mode in Spanish Grammar... this mode expresses possibility, a wish, a fear, a doubt, something that it is not taken for granted...
    In this case, the song, it expresses possibility...

    Yo sea
    Tu seas
    El/Ella sea
    Nosotros seamos
    Ustedes sean
    Ellos sean

    Si me muero sea de amor... if I die, be it of love
    Si me enamoro sea de vos...If I fall in love, be it with you

    Hope you can understand now!!! Spanish Grammar is difficult.

    Hi Sandra!

    "If I fall in love,be it with you"
    maybe would be better "be it of you"?

    saludos

    Hi Mario!
    I think it's definetely to fall in love with you...in the song, I mean...
    By the way, I was away for a while and I just read nice things on the Happiness thread...I will write more later on that but I wanted to thank you for your words. I am so happy for the friends we have made on this forum that I will have to thank the forum eternally for it!!! and much more things, of course...

    I would suggest:

    Si me muero sea de amor... if I die, may it be of love
    Si me enamoro sea de vos...If I fall in love, may it be be with you

    To fall in love with, not of
