So many times

Portuguese Version

So many times I had to be stronger than I actually am
and hurt myself so as not to hurt you
So many times I had to be wiser than I actually am
and silent myself so as not to break you apart
So many times I had to be who I'm actually not
and pretend so as not to destroy your dreams

So many times I had to surrender my own desires
Could you surrender yours sometimes?
So many times I had to forget I'm human
Could you be one sometimes?
So many times I had to be your last refuge
Could you be mine sometimes?

So many times I was there for you
Be here for me once at least
