Marisa Monte - Gentileza (English translation)

English translation

Kindness

They've erased everything
Painted all grey
The word on the wall
Is covered with paint
They've erased everything
Painted all grey
(What's) only left on the wall
(Is) sadness and fresh paint
But we who rush by
Through the city's streets
Deserve to read Kindness'
Letters and words
So therefore I ask you
Out there in the world
Which is smarter?
The book or wisdom?
The world is a school
Life is a circus
Love, word that frees
So said the Prophet
They've erased everything
Painted all grey
(What's) only left on the wall
(Is) sadness and fresh paint
So therefore I ask you
Out there in the world
Which is smarter?
The book or wisdom?
The world is a school
Life is a circus
Love, word that frees
So said the Prophet
