AMOR EM PAZ by Antonio Carlos Jobim, new words by Joel Sattler

 

In the wind

I pretend that I hear the goodbyes

of all the girls I loved 

 

How or when

It all comes back to me in a dream,

back at the fall of time

 

Who am I?

Did I really deserve all the loving 

and did I give enough?

 

No regrets

but I wish I could wish them all well

at least for one last time

just for one last time

one last time

because my love was so real while it lasted

and I loved them all

 

In the end

an old man walks alone on the shore 

with nothing but the past

nothing but the past

just the past

listening for the lost memory of voices

voices in the wind

listening for the lost memory of voices

voices in the wind

Original lyrics in Portuguese by Vinícius de Moraes

 

aka “O Amor em Paz”

 

Eu Amei,

e amei ai de mim muito mais,

do que devia amar.

 

E chorei,

ao sentir que iria sofrer,

e me desesperar.

 

Foi então,

que da minha infinita tristeza,

aconteceu você.

 

Encontrei,

em você a razão de viver,

e de amar em paz.

 

E não sofrer mais,

nunca mais.

 

Porque o amor,

é a coisa mais triste

quando se desfaz.

 

Porque o amor,

é a coisa mais triste,

quando se desfaz.
