Music and lyrics

"Te perdiste mi amor" is a typical modern bachata collaboration with an up-tempo beat and a catchy chorus.The song includes some of its lyrics in English Thalía and Prince Royce in the recurrent lyrics : "I wanna know, just let me know, how could you let me walk away? [...] how could you just take my love away?" and in some other parts of the song.

Within Habítame Siempre's booklet, Thalía cited some of her thoughts regarding to this song, stating : "It's never late to rectify. When the destiny is fine, and wants to reward you, good forgiveness and a big love will be the recompense." Generally, the lyrics of the song are about a man or a woman that was entirely devoted to their partner, but their love was somehow underappreciated. The last lyric of the song is very optimistic, though, as the last line means : "I don't know what happened to us, why don't we try...again?". This is also Thalía's second duet performed in bachata, the first being song "No, no, no" in 2006 with Romeo Santos. "Te Perdiste Mi Amor" was officially remixed by Jump Smokers! and released in this version on February 11, 2013.

Thalía herself has described the song as "a mixture of pop and bachata music" since it contains elements of both music genres.
