The Sheperd

Portuguese

O Pastor

 

Ai que ninguém volta
Ao que já deixou
Ningum larga a grande roda
Ningum sabe onde que andou

Ai que ninguém lembra
Nem o que sonhou
E aquele menino canta
A cantiga do pastor

Ao largo ainda arde
A barca da fantasia
E o meu sonho acaba tarde
Deixa a alma de vigia
Ao largo ainda arde
A barca da fantasia
E o meu sonho acaba tarde
Acordar que eu não queria

Ao largo ainda arde
A barca da fantasia
E o meu sonho acaba tarde
Deixa a alma de vigia
Ao largo ainda arde
A barca da fantasia
E o meu sonho acaba tarde
Acordar que eu no queria

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”
