Poetry & Literature / me gustaria saber si me podian ayudar a traducir esto.. es partye de la letra de uan cancion
English term or phrase: There is nothing I can say , There are no good words left anyway
I got a cottage with a sea view
I got a regular summer tan
I’ve been working up the courage to call you all year, ohhh
There is nothing I can say
There are no good words left anyway
Besides people are cruel
And the world still moves without you, ohhh

¿Y qué más puedo decir, si ya no me quedan buenas palabras?


Explanation:
Incluso, si quieres conservar la rima podrías adaptarlo así:
¿Y qué más (puedo) decir si ya no quedan buenas palabras que añadir? o variaciones de este estilo.
Opino que tratándose de una canción hay que lograr algo más natural y no tal liternal como: "no quedan..." Es correcto, sí, pero para según que contextos quizá no.
Un saludo
