    Default my friendly neighbor will have to deal whit it (?)

    hola a todos, estoy escribiendo una letra en ingles para una canción, y quería agregar esta frase

    "my friendly neighbor will have to deal whit it"
    mi amigable vecino tendra que lidiar con ello

    quería saber si la expresión esta bien usada

    al igual que las siguientes

    "i hear the people All Sound the Same"...(escucho a la gente, todo suena igual)
    o seria mejor o posible
    "i hear the people every Sound the Same"

    "i'm Trying To Find who i really am?"...(estoy tratando de encontrar quien realmente soy)

    y esta

    "but when i try, I fall down" ...(pero cuando intento, me caigo)

    agradeceria una ayuda!

    Hmmm, en un principio, sin más contexto, suena bien.



    "i hear the people All Sound the Same"...(escucho a la gente, todo suena igual)
    o seria mejor o posible
    "i hear the people every Sound the Same"
    I listen to the people...everything sounds the same.

    "i'm Trying To Find who I really am?"...(estoy tratando de encontrar quien realmente soy)
    Perfecto.



    "but when I try, I fall down" ...(pero cuando intento, me caigo)
    Hmmm, ¿cuándo intentas el qué?
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."

    I listen to the people...everything sounds the same. I'd say "I listen to people" without the article

    He says " I'm Trying To Find who I really am?"..but when I try, I fall down"
    when he tries to find who he really is. This ok Peper

    Oh, thanks diego, this was clearer to you than to me

    But I don't know if he really wants to say: I fall down.

    a lo mejor quieres decir : cuando lo intento, fracaso?

    No sé, eso de fall down, yo creo que solo puede significar caerse, literalmente...no sé si es lo que quieres decir, peper.

    Hi Exx!

    In this context I think fall down means to fail, not to literally fall.

    The phrase "to fall down" is used in the "to fail or falter" context, as in:
    "Life has many pitfalls. If you fall down, you must get up and try again."

    Exactly what I thought.
    So do you think to "fall down", meaning to fail, should be used here?

    I agree diego...like "I crumble and fall"

    The song is saying that when I try to find out who I am I just can't do it...I can't, I fail, I am unable, I crumble, etc. ...

    I do not think it means I literally fall down in the physical sense.
