Portuguese
Se um dia alguém perguntar por mim
Diz que vivi p’ra te amar
Antes de ti só existi
Cansado e sem nada p’ra dar

Meu bem, ouve as minhas preces
Peço que regresses, que me voltes a querer
Eu sei que não se ama sozinho
Talvez devagarinho possas voltar a aprender

Meu bem, ouve as minhas preces
Peço que regresses, que me voltes a querer
Eu sei que não se ama sozinho
Talvez devagarinho possas voltar a aprender

Se o teu coração não quiser ceder
Não sentir paixão, não quiser sofrer
Sem fazer planos do que virá depois
O meu coração pode amar pelos dois

Translation
If one day someone asks about me
Say that I lived to love you
Before you I only existed
Tired and with nothing to give

My dear, listen to my pleas
I ask you to come back, that you’ll want me again
I know that one can’t love by oneself
Maybe with time you can learn again

My dear, listen to my pleas
I ask you to come back, that you’ll want me again
I know that one can’t love by oneself
Maybe with time you can learn again

If your heart doesn’t want to give in
Doesn’t feel passion, doesn’t want to suffer
Without making plans about what will happen
My heart can love for both of us

    Boa-tarde.
    Se me permitem a correcção: na última estrofe deveria estar escrito: “Se o teu coração não quiser CEDER”.
    Muito obrigada e cumprimentos,
    Mónica Gouveia
