  • @hudali15 Dear Ali, many thanks for your very kind comment. Why did I translate the song now? Well, consciously, I guess I just wanted to share the original heartbreaking lyrics, which I love, with as many as possible people in the world. I say consciously, because sometimes we cannot tell what drives our immediate and thoughtless actions, as it happened after listening to “Guitarra” yesterday...

    Dear Juoa,
    The translation is great. I wonder what prompted you to translate a year later!
    I shall make visits to SS occasionally to enjoy great works like yours.

  • GUITARRA When a guitarra sings / In the hands of a good player / The guitarra itself teaches / How to sing whoever may be / I want that my coffin / Has a bizarre shape / The shape of a heart / The shape of a guitarra / Guitarra, dear guitarra / I come to cry with you / I feel life softer / When you cry with me - Literally translated from Portuguese by Juão Maya
