sempre dizer a verdade ou esconder o que dá vontade?
não me calar pra injustica ou evitar so mais uma briga?
 
me colocar em primeiro lugar ou à judar quem precisa?
 
meio anjo, meio demonio eu nao sei qual deles sou
se sou um ou se sou outro se eu peco...ainda sou bom?
 
tantas vezes! fica difícil saber qual devo escutar
esperança ou desespero? qual escolha que vai me guiar?
 
fazer sempre tudo certo? ou eu tento ser um pouco esperto
devo agir com cuidado? ou eu tomo alguns bons atalhos?
 
me colocar em primeiro lugar ou à judar quem precisa?

pra vida que eu quero pra mim ou para um momento
 
pra me orgulhar la no fim ou viver um sentimento?

ANGELS AND DEMONS

To always tell the truth or to hide something from the truth?
Not to shut myself up unfairly or to avoid just one more fight?
 
To put myself first or to help someone that needs it?
 
Half angel or half demon... I don't know which I am;
If I'm one or if I'm the other one. If I sin... Am I still good?
 
Too many voices! It's hard to know which I should listen to;
Hope or despair? Which option will guide me?
 
Should I do everything right or try to be a bit smarter?
Should I act carefully or go down some right paths?
 
To put myself first or to help someone that needs it?
 
Half angel or half demon... I don't know which I am;
If I'm one or if I'm the other one. If I sin... Am I still good?
 
Too many voices! It's hard to know which I should listen to;
Hope or despair? Which option will guide me
 
To the life I wish for myself or to a moment
 
to do myself proud in the very end or live a feeling?
 
To always tell the truth or to hide something from the truth?
Angels and demons whisper in my ear. Which of them will be my friend today?
 
Half angel or half demon... I don't know which I am;
If I'm one or if I'm the other one. If I sin... Am I still good?
 
Too many voices! It's hard to know which I should listen to;
Hope or despair? Which option will guide me
 
To the life I wish for myself
or to a moment
 
To do myself proud in the very end
or live a feeling?

It was difficult to translate into English, for the Portuguese version has some punctuation mistakes and some typos. It hasn't been well written. Neither has my translation possibly. I tried. The intonation for some of the interrogative sentences sounds weird. In English one doesn't have that kind of problem since one avoids it by replacing the modal verbs like “should” and “do” in the very start of sentences. However, within that translation, I still find it sounds weird.

The reason the Portuguese lyrics are poorly written is because they weren't anywhere online so I had to manually type them as they appeared on the video so I proably missed some accented letters or other things

The singer has got a weird intonation. I guess that is the reason people gave up writing the transcription for it.
