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
