bandera Traducción al Español
play Step one, you say, "We need to talk."
Primer paso, dices "que tenemos que hablar"
play He walks, you say, "Sit down. It's just a talk."
Él camina y tú dices "siéntate, es sólo una charla"
play He smiles politely back at you
Él te sonríe educadamente
play You stare politely right on through
Te quedas mirándole educadamente fijamente
play Some sort of window to your right
Hay una especie de ventana a tu derecha
play As he goes left and you stay right
Mientras él va a la izquierda y tú te quedas a la derecha
play Between the lines of fear and blame
Entre las líneas del miedo y la culpa
play You begin to wonder why you came
Empiezas a preguntarte por qué viniste
 
play Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
¿Dónde me equivoqué? Perdí un amigo
play Somewhere along in the bitterness
En algún lugar de la amargura
play And I would have stayed up with you all night
Y debí haberme quedado contigo toda la noche
play had i known how to save a life
Debería haber sabido como salvar una vida
 
play Let him know that you know best
Hazle saber que tú lo sabes mejor,
play 'Cause after all you do know best
Porque después de todo, tú de verdad que lo sabes mejor
play Try to slip past his defense
Trata de burlar su defensa
play Without granting innocence
Sin conceder la inocencia.
play lay down a list of what is wrong
Haz una lista de lo que está mal
play The things you've told him all along
Las cosas que le has dicho durante todo este tiempo
play Pray to God, he hears you
Y reza a Dios, él te escucha
play And I pray to God, he hears you
Y reza a Dios, él te escucha
 
play And where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Y ¿Dónde me equivoqué? Perdí un amigo
play Somewhere along in the bitterness
En algún lugar de la amargura
play And I would have stayed up with you all night
Y debí haberme quedado contigo toda la noche
play Had I known how to save a life
Debería haber sabido como salvar una vida
 
play As he begins to raise his voice
Cuando empieza a levantar la voz
play You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Tú baja la tuya y concédele una última opción
play Drive until you lose the road
Conduce hasta que pierdas el camino
play Or break with the ones you've followed
O rompe con los que has seguido.
play He will do one of two things
Él hará una de dos cosas
play He will admit to everything
Lo admitirá todo.
play Or he'll say he's just not the same
O dirá que no es el mismo
play And you'll begin to wonder why you came
Y empezarás a preguntarte por qué viniste
 
play Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
¿Dónde me equivoqué? Perdí un amigo
play Somewhere along in the bitterness
En algún lugar de la amargura
play And I would have stayed up with you all night
Y debí haberme quedado contigo toda la noche
play Had I known how to save a life
Debería haber sabido como salvar una vida
 
play Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
¿Dónde me equivoqué? Perdí un amigo

play Had I known how to save a life
Debería haber sabido como salvar una vida
 
play How to save a life
Como salvar una vida
 
play How to save a life
Como salvar una vida

meaningSignificado

Isaac Slade, el cantante principal de The Fray, se inspiró para escribir esta canción mientras trabajaba como mentor de un adolescente adicto al crack en un campamento.

Creo que se trata de una persona que intentó ayudar a su amigo pero no lo hizo y ahora se siente culpable.
Pero como la canción se refiere a "un amigo", entonces voy a interpretarla como una conversación entre dos amigos.
