English translation

It doesn't change a man

I didn't believe the words when they were so beautiful
I haven't taken the key, I didn't close anything back
But I used them these bushy paths
For the mulberry trees of the concrete, the nose in the tar
 
I have grown up in the street with the end of the fists
With shards of refusals planted in my destiny
For not having wanted anything I didn't remember anything
For not having touched anything I didn't deform anything
 
Refrain:
It doesn't change a man, a man is getting old
Oh a man doesn't die, a man is being forgotten
It doesn't change a man, a man is getting old
Oh a man doesn't die
 
I din't believe the friend, nor the love, nor the girls
I didn't take my time, I waited in the front
But I have burned them, my paper castles
With real snakes, with false simulations
 
It doesn't change a man, a man is getting old
Oh a man doesn't die, a man is being forgotten
It doesn't change a man, a man is getting old
Oh a man doesn't die
 
For not having ever believed I have never lived
For not having ever known, my father I'm greeting you
 
It doesn't change a man, a man is getting old
Oh a man doesn't die, a man is being forgotten
It doesn't change a man, a man is getting old
Oh a man doesn't die
 
It doesn't change a man, a man is getting old
Oh a man doesn't die, a man is being forgotten
Oh a man doesn't die
