MINHA NAMORADA by Carlos Lyra and Vinicius de Moraes, new words by Joel Sattler

 

New title: “The Stars Are Ours” 

 

They all say that the stars go on forever

That the universe will never

Be what we want it to be

 

They say a man is next to nothing

But how can I be next to nothing

When the light source in my being

Of the sun shines out of me

 

I don’t know what makes it so, so elemental

This thing I feel so fundamental

I was dark but now I’m free

 

If today we go beyond the outer limit

There’s a prize and we must win it

And then tomorrow start again

 

The stars are ours, constellations are our heroes

Fear at absolutely zero

Where there never is an end 

 

Earth is just a marble in my pocket

Heart a box and you unlocked it

You unlocked a supernova in my life

 

And now we’re flying unafraid of ever dying

Though the galaxy of our dreaming

And the endless burning night

 

And if you still have confusion

Know this is real and this is not a mere illusion

Deep inside you know I’m right

 

But if you cannot believe what you are seeing

Know that many’ve gone before us

Learning what at last was true

 

And so for us, the truth will meet with no resistance

The proof of love is in our existence

Infinite but only two

Original lyrics in Portuguese:

 

 

Se você quer ser minha namorada.

Ah! que linda namorada.

Você poderia ser.

 

Se quizer ser somente minha.

Exatamente essa coisinha.

Essa coisa toda minha.

Que ninguém mais pode ter.

 

Você tem que me fazer um juramento.

De só ter um pensamento.

Ser só minha até morrer.

 

E também de não perder esse jeitinho.

De falar devagarinho.

Essas histórias de você.

 

E de repente me fazer muito carinho.

E chorar bem de mansinho.

Sem ninguém saber porque.

 

Mas se em vez de minha namorada.

Você quer ser minha amada,

minha amada, mas amada pra valer.

 

Aquela amada pelo amor predestinada.

Sem a qual a vida é nada.

Sem a qual se quer morrer.

 

Você tem que vir comigo em meu caminho.

E talvez o meu caminho,

seja triste pra você.

 

Os seu olhos tem que ser só dos meus olhos.

E seus braços o meu ninho,

no silêncio de depois.

 

E você tem que ser a estrela derradeira.

Minha amiga e companheira

No infinito de nós dois...

 

 

My version is based on a recording by Fabio, Jr.:

It gives, the Brazilian version, another meaning of going steady...
