Melody Gardot - Lisboa Lyrics




Lisboa, Lisboa
The sorrow of your days gone by
Now the hinterland of lovers should lay
Beneath all your vacant skies
Lisboa, Lisboa
From Alama's arms to Lisbendade
Paper lanterns, falling embers
Quiet cantors sing of sandade
The ever twilight amber of your alleyways
Paint the air of evening oh so well
And strolls about the river bank
Suggests there's history left to tell
Aye Lisboa
A paradise beside the sea
There's a beauty
To the absence of tainting all your scenery
Lisboa
Lisboa e luz boa
Lisboa e Pessoa
Lisboa tem Chiado
Tem A'Yama e Tem Fado
Da era severa
D'em tempo que ja era
Nas ruas de Lisboa
Eu vou
Das tuas colinas
Milagres e simas
Nas pracas, rainhas
Flores e Rimas
Eu vou
Lisboa
Ele, I, Esse, Be, O, A

    Lisboa, Lisboa
    The sorrow of your days gone by
    Now the hinterland of lovers should lay
    Beneath all your vacant skies
    Lisboa, Lisboa
    From Alfama´s arms to Liberdade
    Paper lanterns, falling embers
    Quiet cantors sing of Saudade
    The ever twilight amber of your alleyways
    Paint the air of evening oh so well
    And strolls about the river bank
    Suggests there's history left to tell
    Ai Lisboa
    A paradise beside the sea
    There's a beauty
    To the absence of tainting all your scenery
    Lisboa
    Lisboa é luz boa
    Lisboa é Pessoa
    Lisboa tem Chiado
    Tem Alfama e Tem Fado
    Da era Severa
    De um em tempo que já era
    Nas ruas de Lisboa
    Eu vou
    Das tuas colinas
    Milagres e simas
    Nas praças, rainhas
    Flores e Rimas
    Eu vou
