MEJOR * Mejor era cuando decías que tambien me querias ahora todo paso (ya) * Mejor era cuando pensabas que me necesitabas ahora todo paso (ya) * Estribillo: Y tu, tu, tu ya no eres igual no me digas que si no sé lo que pensar no sé lo que decir * Mejor era cuando creía que tu me comprendias ahora veo que no (no) * Mejor era cuando creia que tu no me mentias ahora veo que si * Mejor, será, olvidar tu amor será, mejor, tal vez para los dos tal vez para los dos
BETTER * It was better when you said that you loved me too now that’s all passed (already) * It was better when you thought that you needed me now that’s all passed (already) * Chorus: And you, you, you now you aren’t the same Don’t tell me you are I don’t know what to think I don’t know what to say * It was better when I believed that you understood me now I see it’s not so (no) * It was better when I believed that you didn’t lie to me now I see it’s so * It will be better to forget your love It will ll be better, perhaps for both of us Perhaps for both of us
Verse: D – D – D – A
Chorus: Bm – Em – A – Em – D – G – A – G – A
Bridge: D – Bm – Em – A
The verse uses the imperfect tense to describe the past (era, decías, querias etc.) when she loved him – things were better!
The chorus switches to the present simple to describe the current (heartbroken) situation.
