Can someone please translate from Spanish into English?

The word sobre %26amp; sobr茅. They are words that appear to have many meanings. Can someone enlighten me as to when I might use them.. No online translations please, I could do that myself.

I know that sobrecaliente means "overheated" but that doesn麓t necessarily mean that sobre translates to over.Can someone please translate from Spanish into English?
A.) "Sobre" (masculine noun) means

1) envelope

2) packet (for soup) or satchet (for medicine, sweetener, etc)

3) bed (humorous use) (Ex: ir al sobre = to go to bed)

B.) "Sobre" (preposition) means:

1) on, upon, on top of

2) over, above

3) about

C.) "Sobr茅" (with an accent over the "e") is a conjugated form of the verb, "sobrar". See the conjugation chart for this verb here:鈥?/a>

"Sobrar" means

1) to be left (over)

2) to be more than enough

3) to be unnecessary
sobre = above, over, on
