Lyrics: Teresa Salgueiro


It’s the ‘saudade’
That takes me
To a place of clarity
That conforts me

Vague remembrances
Of perfect hours
So distant
Shattered
For they will not come back

But what does it matter?
I do not feel alone
I have the ‘saudade’ at my side
My anchor

Your sunny smile
All the little gestures
A breath of gentle rain
The greatness of open spaces
The departure, a return and all the embraces

And the tears that were kept
The footsteps carved in sand
A boat that sets free
And meanders in the waves
A star that drifts away
It is all here.

I sing the ‘saudade’
I sing this waiting

I sing the ‘saudade’
I sing the ‘saudade’ and this waiting
I sing the ‘saudade’
I sing this waiting

The eternity

I sing the ‘saudade’

Here time can not catch me

I sing the ‘saudade’
I sing this waiting

The eternity
