Sweet Nat

They are just contracted forms of the auxiliary verbs "Do not" and "Will not"

  • Don't = Do not = Não
  • Won't = Will not = Não vai
  • I don't go = I do not go = Eu não vou
  • I won't go = I will not go = Eu não irei

Here's a ¹word for word translation:

  • It just WON'T feel right. Isso simplesmente não vai parecer certo
  • It just DON'T feel right. Isso simplesmente não parece certo

In the ( lyrics ) you mentioned they chose not to translate ¹word for word. Instead they've chosen a "literal" translation .That's why it's getting you confused.

...And there's also "ain't" but stick with "Don't" and Won't and you'll be fine for now!

¹ word for word = ao pé da letra

² Lyrics = Letra de musica | Letter = Carta ou Letra do Alfabeto

I don't know any of their songs. So I can't tell you about their song. However I can explain about the grammar. The first one can mean "It's not gonna be comfortable", "It'll not seem right", "It'll be wrong". Another one can mean "It's not comfortable","It's not seem right", "It's wrong". However The correct is "It doesn't feel right",But It's common, In music you can say even "He don't".

I looked the song up and I found it..

When he opens his arms and holds you close tonight It just won’t feel right

‘Cause I can love you more than this, yeah

When he lays you down

I might just die inside

It just don’t feel right

‘Cause I can love you more than this

Can love you more than this

We can understand by looking at this lyrics.

When he opens his arms and holds you close tonight(When he holds her tonight)

It just won’t feel right(It's not gonna be comfortable because it's wrong)

‘Cause I can love you more than this, yeah(He said that he can love her more than his enemy)

When he lays you down(When he, you know)

I might just die inside (He said that he dies inside when his enemy does that to his love)

It just don’t feel right(This is wrong, It doesn't seem right)

‘Cause I can love you more than this(Because he loves her more than this)

Can love you more than this(He said the same sentence that he said before)

So that the music "Don't" and "Won't" mean the same thing? That's what I understood. And outside of music, what really means "won't"? Where is it used? Thank you so much!

Sorry I was playing "Live for speed" I mean I'm. I'll answer you then get back there though. No, They're not the same thing. Will is future, For example: "Batman won't use his bat-mobile", "Batman doesn't use his "bat-mobile". Now your other question is, What does "won't" really mean?. "Won't" is the form negative the verb modal "will". When you wanna say "will not", you can say just "won't".

I will not love her - I won't love her.

He will not lose the race - He won't lose the race.

Now the difference between will and be going to

Will

Volunteer - "Who'll fix my car up?"

Offer - "I will do it"

refuse - I'll not listen to you

Promise - "I'll win the race for you."

Facts- the sun will rise tomorrow

Predictions(But it's your opinion) - I think superman v batman will be a great movie.

Be going to

Plans- Tomorrow I'm going to log in to duolingo)

Predictions(See or hear) - I already watched Super-girl pilot, It's gonna be a great tv show.

I posted two English videos 'cause this is the way that I learn , I like learning from native speakers(I don't watch non-native speakers videos teaching English).

It seems the others here have mapped out the difference between "don't" and "won't" for you, but it is also worth noting, that of the two phrases, "It just DON'T feel right" is not technically correct, the only reason they get away with it is because it's a song lyric, so they take artistic license with grammar. If you said "It just DON'T feel right" in conversation it would sound kind of poorly educated/hillbilly. ("It just DOESN'T feel right" would be more appropriate.) Not to add to the confusion but just to clarify!

"It don't feel right" sounds clumsy. The more common version is "It doesn't feel right".

In this song they're using "Don't" as a shortened form of "Doesn't". Hope this helps and love the song! ;)
