Lyrics: Teresa Salgueiro
Music: Teresa Salgueiro | Rui Lobato, Óscar Torres, Marlon Valente | Graciano Caldeira

 

Before the river (is) the city
Before the city (is) the river
Which is the strongest will
Which is the biggest challenge?

Thus I think when
Light through the waters
The ship lingers on
Fast body of luminary

Of in a  moonless night
Draws a street in the river
That briefly crumbles

I wander through the city
Through the polished stone streets
Voices without age pass by
They are the remembrance of other lives

Now I move to the south
The city stays suspended
In the river, in the sky, in the blue
White light of immense longing
