In Sería Feliz, Julieta Venegas sings
tiempo suficiente me falla cada vez vida suficiente me falla
The online dictionionaries give the following meanings for "me falla"
- I fault
- Fails me
- It fails to me
Hmm. Not exactly everyday english!
Trying a traditional dictionary I found a lot of meanings for "fallar". I wondered if the best translation here might be 'I get it wrong'.
Interested in anyone else's thoughts
In my opinion, it is something like "Having enough time lets me down(Fails me)." Not a good translation.. maybe like "I always run out of time" for the first one, and "Life is never good enough for me" for the second
