Hello there,
How do say the following in English, particularly the bold part?

دلم برای رفیقم سوخت. نتونستم روشو زمین بندازم.
Thanks!

    دلم برای رفیقم سوخت. نتونستم روشو زمین بندازم
    Depends very much on the context:
    I felt sorry for my friend/mate...
    I couldn't turn him down/embarrass him
    I couldn't show her up/didn't want to show her up
    I couldn't say no
    I couldn't refuse his request
