Water (Agua)

traduzione in Inglese

Water

Versioni: #1#2
How can you expect to be my friend,(1)
If for you I'd give up my life?
If I confuse your smile
for flirtation if you look at me.
Reason and flesh, difficult mix,
water and thirst, serious problem.
How could you expect to be my friend
If for you I'd disappear,(2)
If I confuse your caresses
For flirtations if you spoil me.
passion and law, difficult mix,
water and thirst, serious problem…
When you are thirsty,
but water isn't close by,
when you need to drink, (3)
but water isn't close by.
What to do, only you know,
Keep our distance,
renounce what's natural,
and let water run its course.
How will you expect to be my friend. (4)
when you receive this letter,
between the lines lies a message,
"How could you be my friend?"
When you are thirsty,
but water isn't close by,
when you need to drink, (3)
but water isn't close by.

--------------------------------------
(1) Querer means to want but in context, it translates as could. Think of it as... "How on earth could you possibly think we can be friends." Spanish has the ability to show off big emotions in a small number of words.
(2) Perder literally means to get lost but in context, it means the speaker is willing to walk out of the addressee's life: hence disappear.
(3) Querer by context here displays a state of urgency; hence need.
(4) Shift in tense from present to future in the following lines makes could turn into will.
