Treasure Island

Carlos Drummond de Andrade


Inconfesso Desejo -- with English translation


Ulterior Desire

I wish I had the courage
To speak of this secret
To tell the world
About this love
Isn't lack of wanting
Isn't lack of desire
You are my wanting
My greatest desire
I wish I could speak loud about
This healthy madness
That is to be in your arms
Lost in your kisses
Feeling crazy by desire
I wish I could recite verses
Sing to the four winds
The words that spring
You're the inspiration
My motivation
I wish I could speak of dreams
Tell my secret desire
Of leaving everything
To live with you
This ulterior desire

--------------------------------

Queria ter coragem
Para falar deste segredo
Queria poder declarar ao mundo
Este amor
Não me falta vontade
Não me falta desejo
Você é minha vontade
Meu maior desejo
Queria poder gritar
Esta loucura saudável
Que é estar em teus braços
Perdido pelos teus beijos
Sentindo-me louco de desejo
Queria recitar versos
Cantar aos quatros ventos
As palavras que brotam
Você é a inspiração
Minha motivação
Queria falar dos sonhos
Dizer os meus secretos desejos
Que é largar tudo
Para viver com você
Este inconfesso desejo

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
