    I'm translating to spanish a Duran-Duran's song (The reflex) and i can't understand this prhase "Try not to bruse it". Anybody help me with those. I beg you pardon for my English, i know is not very well, my native language is Spanish.

    Creo que el sentido es
    "Try not to bruise it", es decir "intenta no margullarlo".

    Hola Marce:

    Bienvenida al foro. Debe ser bruise, y su traducción es magullar.
    Try not to bruise it = trata de no magullarlo.

    Hice unas pocas correcciones a tu texto en inglés, para ayudarte a mejorar.

    Saludos, y nuevamente bienvenida ;)

    I agree with you.
    Another possibility may be "intenta no arruinarlo/estropearlo". It depends on the context.

    Welcome! :)
