Vespas Mandarinas - Só Se Vive Uma Vez (English translation)

English translation

You Only Live Once

There are certain things in me
That I don't understand
I regret other things
But since you only learn by being
Then I'm left with going on living
Knowing that no one
No one is perfect
Everyone is subject
To making mistakes, to prejudice
Everyone has flaws
Everyone has flaws
 
But the biggest flaw
Is making things the way
Everyone else does
And think they're better
And judge too much
Those who, in the end,
Didn't hold on
In any moment
Didn't have a prompt answer
For a big question
I'm sorry
But the biggest illusion
Is being sure
Show me someone who
Who has no weaknesses
That I'll show you someone
That doesn't
That doesn't have reason
That doesn't have a heart
 
Someone who lies
Or something like that
Or doesn't feel
If they don't feel
Unfortunately
They're not people
They're not even animals
Everyone has an addiction
Because everyone looks for pleasure
Even that of suffering
And to no one is given the power
Of knowing what is true
No one can tell
Anyone what they must do
 
No one has the right
Of not living
No one has the right
Of not understanding
No one has the right
Of not thinking
Before throwing
The first stone
Because I might even have a problem
But that's my own problem
If that bothers you
Then it's your problem
 
Being either wrong or right
In my life I give orders
No one will tell me to shush up
I won't shush up
I won't
 
Being either wrong or right
In my life I give orders
No one will tell me to shush up
I won't shush up
 
Being either wrong or right
In my life I give orders
No one will tell me to shush up
I won't shush up
I won't
