A friend of mine who lives in Brazil asked me to write for him the words of this song, where the first part is in English. Since I'm Italian, I don't understand what he's singing, so I was wondering if someone could help me writing the correct lyrics. It would be nice of you all. :)

Here's what I came up with:

There is a piece inside of me still attached to you
Maybe it's* a secret or some trick that only you can do
A very risky way to try to trap me with your charms
A very lovely way to hold me in your arms
I lose my cool and get so lost when I don't see your face
I try to look for you in every little tiny space
But now my world can't turn the way it did before
Because I feel so lost and just can't take no more

Yeah yeah
Every day and every night I'll keep you in my heart
The more I miss the love** the more you make me fall apart
I can see the sign it's real*** beyond my imagination
And I'll be here to love you, you're my inspiration

* - sounds like "is" but must be "it's"
** - I'm struggling with this, but I think this is right
*** - I'm struggling with this part too, and I feel there's an extra sound that might change what's being said, but maybe not.

Anyway, this is about as good as I can do. :)

You're welcome. :)

I've checked the Portuguese lyrics, and the meaning of each thing I was questioning seems to be the same. You may want to have someone else go over them while listening to the song to check them and get a second opinion. ;)

I think you did an excellent job, and these lyrics are pretty cheesy, by the way. Lol! :p

Yeah, they are. :p I think that it has something to do with the way we try and temper our emotions in English so we don't seem overly sentimental, while in romance languages emotions are expressed more freely and deeply. So, if one isn't careful when translating into English, it'll seem a little (if not very) cheesy.
