Kid Abelha - 10 Minutos (English translation)

English translation

10 Minutes

I ask you to give me 10 minutes
To convince you
For us to stay together
If I get to
 
Make you blush
Make you smile
And make you never forget me
When you say goodbye
 
Happiness
Is what I'll feel
Is what I'm feeling
Is what I was feeling
 
There are 10 minutes left
For me to understand you
We'll1 lose everything, everything
If I get to
 
Make you cry
Make you ask me
Never to look for you again
When I give up
 
Happiness
Will abandon me
Is abandoning me
Abandoned me
 
Happiness
Is what I'll feel
Is what I'm feeling
Is what I was feeling
 
Use in this discussion
Some shyness, a certain look
But it's useless
You won't believe it
If I don't float
 
Happiness
Is what I'll feel
Is what I'm feeling
Is what I was feeling
 
Happiness
Is what I'll feel
Is what I'm feeling
Is what I was feeling
 
10 minutes...

  • 1. The verbal form 'perdemos' is a present form, however, given its usage in the lyrics, it denotes a future idea: something will be lost if something else happens

Author's comments:

Those 'Happiness is what I'll feel, etc.' lines were freely translated (though I tried to keep the original message of the lyrics) since I thought 'Happiness will happen/happened/is happening to me' doesn't look like a good construction in English - I never used it or saw it being used. I'm not sure feelings can happen to someone...
