Seagull If a seagull would come Bring me the sky of Lisbon My love, in your hand That hand where it would fit In the drawing that made My heart perfectly In that sky where the look If when saying farewell to life Is a wing that doesn't fly Falters and falls into the sea All birds in the sky Would give me when I part What a perfect heart Your ultimate look Would beat in my chest That look that was only yours My love, in your hand That hand where it would fit My love that were the first What a perfect heart My heart perfectly Would die in my chest If a Portuguese sailor My Wandering through the 7 seas love, in your hand Would be, who knows the firstThat hand were perfectly My heart beat (past tense) To tell me what invented My love If a look of a new shine in your hand To my look would enlace That hand were perfectly What a perfect heart My heart beat (past tense) Would beat in my chest Black (sail)boat In the morning, how I feared that you could find me ugly I woke up trembling, laid on the beach's sand But immediately your eyes told me the opposite And the sun entered into my heart Then I saw a cross stuck on a rock And your black sailboat dancing under the light I saw your hand waving goobye among the ready loose sails Old women of the beach tell me that you will not come back They are crazy... They are crazy... I know, my love, that you, in fact, did not leave because, everything around me tells me that you are always with me You are in the wind, which spreads sand on the glass (of the windows) You are in the water, that sings into the dying fire You are in the warmth of the rest from empty seabeds You are forever with me, into my heart/chest
