Explanation:
Confiar recoge tanto el sentido de contar, relatar (se supone del "she would advice me") como el de "identificarse con".

Y confié en mi mejor amiga,
Ella me aconsejaría
Pero rompió nuestro pacto, se puso la chaqueta
Y estoy asustada porque se ha ido de verdad
Y confié en mi mejor amiga, ¿te acuerdas?

Aaaaahh... Me gustaba un montón esta canción..

dirigirse


Explanation:
me dirigí a mi .... (comprende, me parece, relacionarse y contar algo), pero me llama la atención que en la última línea no está "to" (tampoco conozco el idioma tan bien, ojo!), pero me suena como un juego de opalabras donde primero dice que se lo contó, y despues, marca "me refería" a mi mejor amiga (porque subraya "se acuerdan". perdon si entendí todo mal. suerte
