You wasted all your chances
To find yourself lost and lonely
Were so foolish
You were selfish
Much too blind to realzie
You messed up your own life...

Eu vou contando os dias
E já, já não tenho medo
Eu lhe peço
Eu imploro
Quando a minha hora chegar
Meu descanso minha paz

Cante uma canção desconhecida
Posoning with hope
the hearts arround you
Plante mais lembranças na sua vida
Death is calling you
(Now or never!)
Nada além do amor é o que parece
Please the ones you love
before you miss 'em
Toda a minha dor na minha prece.
Win my chances back 'cause
Life is short but it's never late!

Tempo que passou
It's time to find Redemption
Não vai mais voltar
Only love defies the Resurrection
Tudo que se foi
Mark my words: God's abandoned this
world!

Would I live again?
What's the new religion? Yeah!
And what shall be the bread?
Really I don't give a damn!
never wanna live again
In this vain emotion
Over for me!

Sing a lullaby now I remember
Tempo que se foi e não se esquece mais
Memories are twisting in my mind
Win my chances back
Cause life is short but it's never late

Tempo que passou
It's time to find Redemption
Não vai mais voltar
Only love defies the resurection
Tudo que se foi
Mark my words: God's abandoned this
world!
Toda a minha dor
My destiny is over
Nunca vai voltar
And this hope above your
comprehension
Tempo que se foi
Is the love you've been dreaming so
lon
Over for me.
Nunca...
...tudo se acabou.

    My InterpretationThis song is about overcoming something that really put the person down. Maybe it's depression, or maybe a deed or situation he's been through. And obviously he blames himself for it.
    That 'something' is sang about in the first sentence of the song "You wasted all yout chances... To find yourself lost and lonely..."
    The suffering the person went through made him wish his own death, that's what I get from the second sentence, in portuguese.

    Then the possibility of redemption flourishes in the third, the chorus. "Cante uma canção desconhecida" means "Sing an unknown song", and I take it signifies 'embrace what is to come', as if cheering the person for the unknown future.
    The pain however doesn't pass comepletely, as he finds himself at the end of his life listening to the advices he received before, and wondering about religious beliefs. Beliefs that he doesn't fancy, as if the pain was greater than whatever truth people may trust.

    In the end its a conflict between wanting to find his redemption in life or in death.
