Nando Reis - Pra Onde Foi? (English translation)

English translation

Where Did You Go?

It bleeds on the exposed flesh
It's neither pain nor fear
There's no reason to cry
It's all around
It's not a secret any more
Why should I speak?
 
In all that I see
Everywhere, even here where I am
 
Water drains from being undermined
It flows in silence
An irregular verse
It flies without a craft or a route
It erects a monument
It goes on, not stopping
 
I don't know where you are
I let you come into here
I don't know where you went
But I'm sure you didn't die
Don't go
 
Your eyes open doors
Early in the morning
Come wake me up
If you touch my hand
I feel your fingers
Come hold me
 
If I look and I can't see you
You liking it is almost desperation
 
In an opposite direction
You seeing me
I'll look for you
My chest over your back
The sex we had
Flows into a huge sea
 
I don't know where you are
I let you come into here
I don't know where you went
But I'm sure you didn't die
Don't go
 
I don't know where you are
I let you come into here
I don't know where you went
But I'm sure you didn't die
Don't go
