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

*

Better was when you said

that you loved me too

now that’s all passed (already)

*

Better was when you thought

that you needed me

now that’s all passed (already)

*

Chorus:

And 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

*

Better was when I believed

that you understood me

now I see it’s not so (no)

*

Better was 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’ll be better, perhaps for both of us

Perhaps for both of us

GRAMMAR:
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.
