It's Still Early

Lyrics: Renato Russo
Music: Dado Villa-Lobos/Renato Russo/Marcelo Bonfá/Ico Ouro-Preto
Translation: Alex Birch

One girl taught me
Almost everything I know
It was almost slavery
But she treated me like a king

She made many plans
I just wanted to be there
Always by her side
I didn't have anywhere else to go

But, as selfish as I am
I forgot to help
Her like she helped me
And I didn't want to leave

She also was lost
And for this she held onto me
And I held onto her
Because I didn't have anyone else

And I said: It's still early
early
early
early
early

I know that she finished
what I didn't start
And what she discovered
I learned as well, I know.

She said: You're afraid.
Then I said: Who's afraid is you.
We spoke what shouldn't
Ever be spoken by anyone

She told me:
"I no longer know what I feel for you.
Let's give it time, one day we'll see each other."

And I said: It's still early
early
early
early
early
