ASTRUD GILBERTO lyrics - Quiet Nights

ASTRUD GILBERTO
"Quiet Nights"

Quiet nights of quiet stars
Quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us

Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams
Quiet walks by quiet streams
And a window that looks out on Corcovado
Oh, how lovely

Um cantinho, um violao
Esse amor, uma cancao
Pra fazer feliz a quem se ama

Muita calma pra pensar
E ter tempo pra sonhar
Da janela ve-se o Corcovado
O Redentor, que lindo!

Quero a vida sempre assim
Com voce perto de mim
Ate o apagar da velha chama

E eu que era triste
Descrente desse mundo
Ao encontrar voce eu conheci
O que e felicidade, meu amor.

This is where I want to be here with you so close to me
Until the final flicker of life's ember.

I who was lost and lonely believing life was only
A bitter tragic joke, have found with you,
The meaning of existence, oh my love
