ENGLISH TRANSLATION


Wait a minute, wait a minute, sorry for interrupting but
Why are you saying the same things over and over again?
One of us has to say it first
Let's just end it here
I want to stop fighting now
There's not a day where we just let things go
My days have no meaning now
I don't smile even for one minute or one second
I can't do this anymore, I want to tell you today
I don't want to care where you are or what you do
Whether you leave or not, do whatever you want
The same thing repeats every day, U & I, U & I, U & I
Wait a minute, wait a minute, will you get off of me?
Why are you doing this, let go of my hand
Even after hearing it several times, your words are all the same
Tired of all your lies and excuses now just get out my face
We can't turn things back to how it was before
We became worse than strangers, we became burdens to each other
Besides you, I have no one else
But I don't care anymore, I just wanna tell you
I don't want to care where you are or what you do
Whether you leave or not, do whatever you want
The same thing repeats every day, U & I, U & I, U & I
You may think I'll be crying here where you left me
But I'm alright, because it won't happen again
You and I, it's over now
I don't want to care where you are or what you do
Whether you leave or not, do whatever you want
The same thing repeats every day, U & I, U & I, U & I
