We could also then say it means crutch, no?

I wouldn't think so, but who knows what poets really have in mind when they take poetic licences? Strictly speaking, you cannot be "addicted to someone" so I guess anything just as poetic works fine.

Funny how a single sentence can create so much discussion smile

Si! It's funny how things work out that way.

Creo que es como decir que "You're my vice" en inglés.

I think that's a good possibility, but you could also say "I'm addicted to you."

I agree with James that "I'm addicted to you" is the literal meaning.

En Verdad es "You're my Vice"

No vamos a pelear pero estoy convencido que "vice" en inglés es usado solamente para cosas imorales. Por ejemplo, en español se dice "fumar cigarrillos es un vicio", en inglés se debe decir "to smoke cigarettes is a bad habit".

De verdad no me recuerdo de ninguno uso de la palabra "vice" excepto en la bíblia o textos filosóficos.

a propósito, Selena was not Mexican. She was born in Texas, and Spanish was her second language.

I believe "vice" in English implies a character flaw (the opposite of "virtue"), whereas "vício" in Spanish can be applied to anything you are obsessed about without necessarily implying immoral behaviour. I'd say "I'm addicted to you" is closer to the original meaning in the song.

As to Latin, there are five major languages that descend from it: Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian. Linguists call these Romance languages. From what I've seen Italian is closest to Latin while Romanian is furthest.

latin no es lo mismo que espanol latin es viejo una vieja lengua es lo que pienso y otra cosa cuando las cansiones van a latin yo creo que eso significa LATINO consideramos a los de habla espanola como latinos es por eso que nos dicen latinos ..si tu significa you necesitas mucho vocabulario y gramar y solo necesitas practica keep going
