My very first song with this exquisite poem by Pedro Lago, a beautiful rendition of admiration for the loved one. Thanks Pedro!


music by Fernando Brandão
lyrics by Pedro Lago

Talvez fosse o mar, apenas.
Esse nada dizer entre risos,
essa vertigem a despedir-se
na névoa que se dissipa
aos pés da madrugada,
ou simplesmente nada.

E trazer consigo o sabor
do maracujá, o café puro
e o dizer bobagens em
passos sem destino.

Não sei se era isso,
ou apenas você sorrindo.

music by Fernando Brandão
lyrics by Pedro Lago

Maybe it was only the sea.
This nothingness said in between laughs,
this vertigo saying farewell
in the fog that dissipates
at the feet of dawn,
or simply, nothing.

And bringing with it the taste
of passionfruit, pure coffee,
and silly talks,
walking without destination.

I am not sure it was this,
or just you, smiling
