CORCOVADO (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars)

Written by Antonio Carlos Jobim in 1960.
English lyric by Gene Lees and Buddy Kaye lyrics written in 1961)


lyrics

I who was lost and lonely
Believing love was only
A bitter tragic joke I found in you
The meaning of existence
Oh my love.

Quiet nights of quiet stars
Quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us.
Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams
Quiet walks by quiet streams
And a window looking on the mountains and the sea
How lovely
This is where I long to be
Here with you so close to me
Until the final flicker of life’s ember

I who was lost and lonely
Believing love was only
A bitter tragic joke
I found with you
The meaning of existence
Oh my love.

Um cantinho, um violão
Esse amor, uma canção
Pra fazer feliz a quem se ama

Muita calma pra pensar
E ter tempo pra sonhar
Da janela vê-se o Corcovado
O Redentor, que lindo!

Quero a vida sempre assim
Com você perto de mim
Até o apagar da velha chama

E eu que era triste
Descrente desse mundo
Ao encontrar você eu conheci
O que é felicidade, meu amor.
