Todas as manhãs o aeroporto em frente de da liçþes de partir: Every morning the airport in front of me teaches me lessons on parting:

Confiei às feras as minha lagrimas Rolei de borco pelas calçadas My tears to the beasts I trust And rolled upside down the pavement

Mas ela chega, e toda me paraece T達o acima de mim... T達o linda e rara... And when she comes, I see her So much above me... So beautifl and rare...

Mas ela chega, e toda me paraece T達o acima de mim... T達o linda e rara...

And when she comes, I see her So much above me... So beautifl and rare...

Volúpia dos abandonos... Dos sós... - ouvir a água escorrer; Lavando o tédio dos telhados que se setem envelhecer... Luxuriant pleasure of the discarded... The lonly... - to hear water trickling. Washing away the boredom of roofs who feel they are aging...

O mundo ĂŠ sem piedade e atĂŠ riria Da tua inconsolĂĄvel amargura. There is no pity in the world, it would even laugh At your inconsolable bitterness.
