Souvenir Of The Ancient World

Clara strolled in the garden with the children.
The sky was green over the grass,
the water was golden under the bridges,
other elements were blue and rose and orange,


What now, José?
The party’s over,
the lights are off,
the crowd’s gone,

Apparition Of Love

Sweet ghost, why do you visit me
as in other times our bodies visited each other?
Your transparency dampens my skin

Ulterior Desire -- English Translation Of Inconfesso Desejo

I wish I had the courage
To speak of this secret
To tell the world
About this love

Don'T Kill Yourself

Carlos, keep calm, love
is what you're seeing now;
today a kiss, tomorrow no kiss,


Who had the idea of slicing time into pieces,
which were given the name of year,
was a genius person.

Quadrilha -- With English Translation

João loved Teresa who loved Raimundo
who loved Maria who loved Joaquim
who loved Lili
who loved nobody.

In The Middle Of The Road

In the middle of the road there was a stone
there was a stone in the middle of the road
there was a stone
in the middle of the road there was a stone.

Sentiment Of The World

I have only two hands
And the sense of the world,
But I am full of slaves,
My memories flow

To Wake, To Live

How to wake up without hurt?
Restart without horror?
My sleep carried me
