Bola de Meia*, Seu Jorge from Cru
*Bola de meia: a soccer ball made from rolled up (usually old) socks

So much time to think
But in-between all the running around
I think it didn’t work

I was trying to fix our thing
But without your help
it didn’t happen

Maybe if you’d been smarter
And had give “time” some time
It wouldn’t have been like that
It sucked all my strength
Now I no longer want you for me

Unfortunately it’s like that
The end of a story
That we had just begun
If you had been more careful with how I feel
Perhaps my heart would still belong to you

This end is not what I wanted
And our understanding
never happened

And I who fought that day to have you by my side
Now I must confess
It is I who no longer wants this

It was me who gave you
Your first kiss
Your first touch
The first song

If you really
want to be with me
Don’t make my heart into a bola de meia

It was me who gave you
Your first kiss
Your first touch
The first song

If you really
want to be with me
Don’t make my heart into a bola de meia

So much time, so much time….

[repeat from the top]

I just discovered this incredible song, and cry every time I hear it. Thanks for the translation as there were a few words I couldn't understand.
