Feeling uninspired with Spanish for the week.So please help me with this.....

Hi all, sometimes we hit a stage of monotony for a few days and you want to push through it.I still love learning so I thought i will try something new that will enable me to learn and also enjoy a more laid back learning environment.I thought of trying to translate some songs that I like therefore I can chill and still learn.. for some reason i have taken to this song..It would be great to see other peoples translations to this song and how many different versions we get... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjRPDzcmJT4

[Verse 1 - Rihanna:] I think I've had enough/ I might get a little drunk/ I say what's on my mind/ I might do a little time 'Cause all of my kindness Is taken for weakness

[Verse 1 - Rihanna:] Creo que ya tuve suficiente/ Podría embriagarme un poco/ Digo lo que está en mi mente/ Y tal vez deba esperar porque toda mi amabilidad es tomada por debilidad

Thank you..I figured feeling uninspired is only temporary as i have always loved the language and wanted to learn,it is just a matter of frustration.I am just trying to turn a negative into a positive . Thanks for your support

oh..as in 45(colt)? You will have to excuse my ignorance as I am not up to speed with American jargon (if that is what it is)

Yeah. I don't understand some parts of the song so I search for meanings and I found that. When she says " I might do a little time" she means in jail or so. So the four five it's seems to be a gun. I guess I don't really understand the song the first time. Haha.

Here's a song in spanish with lyrics included in case you want to sign along a little. It's called "Nothing last forever (Nada es para siempre)" because as you said "feeling uninspired is only temporary".

Thank you for this.It is a song that is not too hard for English speakers to translate.The best thing about music is that it is a universal language.
