El Cuarteto de Nos - Nombres (English translation)

English translation

Names

I put a name to my insecurity
I gave it a face, eyes, and a voice
It always comes when I call it [exact: When I call it, it always comes to my call]
So I talk to it and no longer feel alone [exact: And so I talk to it and feel accompanied]
When I find myself faced with a decision [exact: when I stand in front of a decision]
Sometimes I think a lot
 
This happens to me when I think too much
This happens to me when I think too much
Sometimes I think a lot
This happens to me when I think too much
This happens to me when I think too much
Sometimes I think a lot
 
I put a name to my loneliness
To nostalgia, to fear and to pain
So when they appear like shadows at my back
I can face them alone, without shield or sword
Because I also put a name to my bravery
Sometimes I think a lot
 
This happens to me when I think too much
This happens to me when I think too much
Sometimes I think a lot
This happens to me when I think too much
This happens to me when I think too much
 
And so I recognize my fears
I face them and I could sleep
I can name them and see them
I can speak to them and hear them
 
So I stop running, being a hostage
I baptized them with names I chose myself
so that it was like a talisman
 
that protects me from evil
How difficult it is at times to understand
Who is who
 
This happens to me when I think too much
This happens to me when I think too much
Sometimes I think a lot
This happens to me when I think too much
This happens to me when I think too much
Sometimes I think a lot

Hello, you can use footnotes using the next format, so you won't have to explain in each stanza and confuse the reader: [f n] insert the text here [f n] and add a / in the second [f n], like this [/f n]. (Obviously all together without the space)
