Sorry if you consider this a very simple phrase but I cannot fully understand it.

No entiendo si estaba medio tapado por las sábanas, o si estaba sobre ellas o qué.

    No problem MarcoTL. it´s not a simple phrase at all.
    My understanding: Half his body is on top of the sheets and half his body is under the sheets.
    Medio tapado.

    Ni siquiera. Puede ser que parte de su cuerpo estaba encaramado sobre las sábanas y el resto podría estar, culo pa´arriba arrodillado en el piso.
    So who knows? How about some more context?

    Thanks, here is more context in case it helps:

    "I lay half in top of the sheets [...] I pulled the sheet back over me and roll on to my side"

    Hi Marco, there still is not enough context to make sense of this.

    Where are the sheets? Are they on a bed? Are they in a pile on the floor? Are they in fact bed-sheets or some other kind of sheet?
