about

A gorgeous song by Ivan Lins written for his mentor, Tom Jobim.

lyrics

Rio, as pedras pulsam na manhã grená
Frio, vejo arrepios na vela azul crepom do mar
As folhas caem no jardim de alá
Ah, porque no outono o coração dói mais
Rio, o verde vibra na manhã lilás
Frio, copacabana é um cartão postal vazio
E o batimento das marés é blues
É jazz, o sol enfeita a zona sul de luz em vão, em paz
Pardais, passeiam sobre o vidigal em paz
Flamingos flanam na rocinha em paz
Rio de maio acorda quase em paz
Bem perto de mim,
Dois sabiás se amam perto de mim
Adolescentes beijam perto de mim
Ai, que saudade de você e de mim
Os beijos de amor na tarde sem fim
Se fosse um filme a nossa vida era assim
Um beijo imenso, um mar cantando jobim
O grande amor se reprisando a vida inteira
Tom, as pedras pulsam na manhã grená
Frio, vejos arrepios na vela azul crepom do mar
As folhas caem no jardim de alá
Ah, o outono faz o coração doer demais...
