Lisboa
Melody Gardot Lyrics


Lisboa ai 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

Ai Lisboa
A paradise beside the sea
There's a beauty
To the absence of tainting all your scenery

Oh oh
Lisboa é luz boa
Lisboa é Pessoa (também é)
Lisboa tem chiado (também tem)
Alfama e tem fado

Da era severa
De um tempo que já era
Nas ruas de Lisboa eu vou (eu vou também)
Das tuas colinas
Milagres e simas
Nas praças, rainhas
Flores e rimas, eu vou (eu vou)
Eu vou
L-I-S-B-O-A
L-I-S-B-O-A
Lisboa
L-I-S-B-O-A
L-I-S-B-O-A (Lisboa)

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
