The Sheperd (O Pastor)

English translation

The Sheperd

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5
Oh, no one comes back
To the things left behind
No one stops the "Ring Around The Rosie" cycle
No one knows your own whereabouts
 
Oh, no one even remembers
Their dreams
(And) that boy sings
The shepherd's song
 
The Boat of Fantasy
Still Burns at the square
My dream takes long to end
And my soul remains vigilant
The Boat of Fantasy
Still Burns at the square
My dream takes long to end
I don’t want to wake up

* For "a grande roda" I suppose they refer to a child’s play similar to "Ring Around The Rosie".
* According to Pedro Ayres Magalhães from Madredeus, the song is “an ode to the feeling of hope that lives in us, when we cultivate in our waking life the fantasy of our dreams we transform the impossible into daily action”
