Portuguese
Como tudo o que acaba
Como pedra rolando duma fraga
Como fumo subindo no ar

Assim estou quase indiferente
Caminhando sem mais notar a gente
Que por mim vejo passar

O verão já terminou
Foi um sonho que findou
Não interessa mais pensar

Assim deixo esta tristeza
Vogando embalado na certeza
Que o verão há-de voltar

E o verão que sonho perto
Vai trazer para mim eu sei de certo
Aquilo que este agora veio tirar

Translation
Like an ending to everything
Like a stone rolling from a crag
Like a smoke rising in the air

I’m almost indifferent
Walking by, without looking to people
That I watch passing me by

The summer is over
It was a dream that ended
I won’t think about it

Therefore I leave this sadness
Drifting, rocked, by being certain
That the summer will return

And the summer that I long to come near
Will surely bring me
What this summer took away
