In Great Britain two versions exist titled I'll always keep you in my heart and Paul the dreamer. In Italy, a version belonging to Eugenio Rondinella retained the title words in the original language, but is otherwise very different as it relates to a man who will be imprisoned for one year. Another Italian version, recorded by Milva , retained the original title words as well; the lyrics are intended to be sung by a female singer and they are the farewell of the performer to her friends before her imprisonment.
Jose Gobello wrote that "it is the tango with the most phonographic versions globally and a quite catchy melody though not matching the poignancy of the verses , but it does not seem to sufficiently explain the melodious sighs of acceptance by a diehard tango-ist.
