Lyrics by Magda Giannikou & Sofia Ribeiro

Coração

Uma cama de algas feita de seda e cetim
E Nesta festa de águas chove assim, chove assim

Estrelas jogam um jogo, neste céu sem fim
E nesta festa de fogo, chove assim, chove assim

Ondas cruas deste mar, que é que sabem de levantar?
Meus pés nus neste chão, que é o que sabem do meu

Coração que cai, confundido
Coração, uma gotinha
Cheio de dor, chove ilusão

Lua, rainha das aguas, feita de seda e cetim
Lua, em minha estrada chove assim, chove assim

Quem é que deu à madrugada este céu sem fim?

Não sei quem foi, não sei nada, chove assim, chove assim

Ondas cruas deste mar, que é que sabem de levantar?
Meus pés nus neste chão, que é o que sabem do meu

Coração que cai, confundido
Coração, uma gotinha
Cheio de dor, chove ilusão

Coração que sai, cristalino
Coração, uma rainha
Cheio de luz, chove emoção
Chove assim, meu coração

English Translation

Bed of seaweed made of silk and satin
In this feast of waters it rains like this, it rains like this

Stars are playing a game on an endless sky
In this feast of fire it rains like this, it rains like this

Raw waves of the sea, what do you know of rising?
My bare feet on this ground, what do you know of my
Heart that falls, confused

Heart, a raindrop
Full of pain, it rains illusion

Moon, queen of the waters, made of silk and satin
Moon, on my path, it rains like this, it rains like this

Who gave dawn this endless sky,
I don’t know who it was, I know nothing
It rains like this, it rains like this

Raw waves of the sea, what do you know of rising?
My bare feet on this ground, what do you know of my
Heart that falls, confused

Heart, a raindrop
Full of pain, it rains illusion

Heart that soars, crystalline
Heart, a queen
Full of light, it rains emotion
That’s how it rains in my heart.
