about

Ivan Lins beautiful song, also known as "The Island" in English. The first time I heard this tune was Dee Dee Bridgewaters version of The Island. I love it in English, but in Portuguese it's just so much better...the lyrics are so poignant!

lyrics

Começar de novo e contar comigo
Vai valer a pena ter amanhecido

Ter me rebelado, ter me debatido
Ter me machucado, ter sobrevivido
Ter virado a mesa, ter me conhecido
Ter virado o barco, ter me socorrido

Começar de novo e contar comigo
Vai valer a pena ter amanhecido

Sem as tuas garras sempre tão seguras
Sem o teu fantasma, sem tua moldura
Sem tuas escoras, sem o teu domínio
Sem tuas esporas, sem o teu fascínio

Começar de novo e contar comigo
Vai valer a pena já ter te esquecido...
Começar de novo
