Zeca Baleiro - De Mentira (English translation)

English translation

A Lie

Your life is a lie
Lies feed you
Appearances are deceiving and you only appear
Your life is a lie
Lies feed you
Appearances are deceiving and you only appear
 
If you wanted peace, you came to the wrong place
The future never arrives and neither can you go back to the past
All you have is this, this moment
Life beating in your veins, blood on the inside and skin on the outside
 
The night is long, life is short, a due date that is almost expiring
A shadow that the mortal casts onto the darkness
Life's hard, brother, life's hard
A pit of hate, grief and bitterness
Life's hard, brother, life's hard
Love and pain, passion, greed and wrath
Another reason not to live a life of lies
 
Your life is a lie
Lies feed you
Appearances are deceiving and you only appear
Your life is a lie
Lies feed you
Appearances are deceiving and you only appear
 
Put your soul in everything, be what you are
Why should you marry and have children if you don't even like women?
Why should you have a new car if you walk on your foot?
Why should you act nice when you're more of a fool?
 
But if your desire is deep, sincere, true and deep
Turn your back to the world, fuck it, to hell with it, you only have one life
You only have one life
Be courageous to live what is right for you
I'm sure that you know what is right for you
 
If it's the storm or a heat
If it's something gypsyish or ordinary
If it's the priesthood or prostitution
If it's the office work or poetry
 
Your life is a lie
Lies feed you
Appearances are deceiving and you only appear
Your life is a lie
Lies feed you
Appearances are deceiving and you only appear
 
You say you're a poet but you're just a faker
You fake so completely that you even believe in your pain
It's so much pain that you lie
 
You say you're a poet but you're just a faker
You fake so completely that you even believe in your pain
It's so much pain that you lie
 
You say you're a poet but you're just a faker
You fake so completely that you even believe in your pain
It's so much pain that you lie
 
You say you're a poet but you're just a faker
You fake so completely that you even believe in your pain
It's so much pain that you lie
 
You say you're a poet, you're just a faker
You so completely believe in your pain
It's so much pain that you lie
