Portuguese song and lyrics by Maysa:
Sung in Portuguese and English by Sandra Lea Wise
Ouça, vá viver, a sua vida com outro bem,
hoje já cansei de pra você não ser ninguém.
O passado não foi o bastante pra te convencer,
que o futuro seria bem grande só eu e você.
Quando a lembrança, com você for morar
e bem baixinho de saudade você chorar,
vais lembrar que um dia existiu
um alguém que só carinho pediu
e você fez questão de negar,
fez questão de não dar!
Portuguese Lyric translation by Sandra Lea Wise
(Translation is literal, not lyrical.)
Listen, go live your life with another love,
today I’ve already become tired of to you being no one.
The past was not enough to convince you,
that the future would be so great just me and you.
When the memory, with you goes to live
and very softly from memories you cry,
you will remember that one day there existed
someone who for tenderness only asked
and you made sure to deny it,
you made sure not to give it!
English lyrics by Sandra Lea Wise and Sheila Frush
Listen, go live your life with somebody new,
today I’ve grown tired of meaning nothing to you.
If the past was not enough for you to see,
that the future would so great, just you and me.
When your memory haunts you and you remember
I said goodbye,
When you are so lonely, that you sit alone and cry,
You’ll remember that all that I asked
was for you love, and a little tenderness,
but you turned away from my love,
so go on and cry…
Dedicated to Rich, Walking on Eggs
