kam të qaj një hall me ty
need to share a head ache with you/need to share (talk about) a concern with you


Explanation:
You probably need to say Kam një hall për të qarë me ty, bu in any case the way it sounds in English not always represents the deepness of the meaning it has in Albanian.

Need to share a problem with you, need to talk with you about a problem of mine.

kam të qaj një hall me ty
I need to talk to you about smth that is bothering me!


Explanation:
Une do e kisha shprehur keshtu ne anglisht sepse nuk besoj qe ka ndonej shprehje fikse qe mund ti korrespondoje kesaj shprehjeje ne shqip. Per te dhene nje kuptim me te sakte dhe sa em afer origjinalit ne shqip une zgjedh kete perkthim.
