My version is based on the recording by Dolores Duran :


POR CAUSA DE VOCÊ by Antonio Carlos Jobim, new words by Joel Sattler


New title: “Love Surely Will Stay”


If you can look in your heart

Please don’t try to fool yourself with what you think you see

and if you don’t know what you’re starting

Then come my little friend, take a walk with me


I’ve been in love many times too

And thought I knew everything that I wanted out of love

sometimes I made a damn fool of my foolish self too

my head got in the way


It’s not so hard

To fall in love at first, but it hurts

just keep his heart in your own heart

And never break the two apart


So my advice

is always to keep love fresh and new

And it will work for you

That’s what I wished I knew

Stay strong and stay true and

Love surely will stay




Original lyrics in Portuguese by Dolores Duran



Ah, você está vendo só

Do jeito que eu fiquei

E que tudo ficou


Uma tristeza tão grande

Nas coisas mais simples

Que você tocou


A nossa casa querido

Já estava acostumada

Guardando você


As flores na janela

Sorriam, cantavam

Por causa de você


Olhe meu bem nunca mais

Nos deixe por favor


Somos a vida e o sonho

Nós somos o amor


Entre meu bem por favor

Não deixe o mundo mau lhe levar outra vez

Me abrace simplesmente

Não fale, não lembre

Não chore meu bem

"...Uma tristeza tão grande..." when sadness becomes so enormous, saudades will come with the tears.
