480003 Jugador : MMMM, that's wierd
480004 Jugador : I have never heard it said that way
480005 Marcos49 : Yeah, I'd rather be a lover than a fighter 'Cause all my life, I've been fighting Never felt a feeling of comfort All this time, I've been hiding And I never had someone to call my own, oh nah I'm so used to sharing Love only left me alone But I'm at one with the silence I found peace in your violence Can't tell me there's no point in trying I'm at one, and I've been quiet for too long I found peace in your violence Can't tell me there's no point in trying I'm at one, and I've been silent for too long I've

480025 Jugador : Ok so how would you say...... If i had know i would have told you.
480026 Marcos49 : "Há" = "Haver"
480027 Jugador : si hubiera sabido telo habria dicho
480028 Marcos49 : Se ele houvesse sabido, ele haveria dito.
480030 Jugador : so past subjunctive
480031 Jugador : same as in spanish
480032 Marcos49 : But in this case, we would prefer the verb "ter". Se ele tivesse sabido, ele teria dito.
