Nando Reis - A Urca (English translation)

English translation

Urca

I can't look at the plate because I see pinky spots
Pink was the color of our plates
I can't take a cab that passes by the Flamengo Park1
If I look to my left I see your house
Do you still live there?
Is it you on that window?
Urca is a beautiful place, but there was no space for me back there
 
I can't drive your car anymore
Because I'm outside
You cut me off of your picture book
I can't stay thinking alone
I don't support passing too much time away from this house
Can I still call your house mine2?
Is there space for me back there?
Urca is a beautiful place, but you are even more beautiful
 
I can't drive your car anymore because I see pinky spots
You cut me off of your picture book
I can't stay thinking alone
If I look to my left I see your house
Do you still live there?
Is it you on that window?
Urca is a beautiful place, but there was no space for me back there
 
No space for me...
No space for me...
 
Can I still call your house mine2?
Is there space for me back there?
Urca is a beautiful place, but you are even more beautiful
 
Do you still live there?
Is it you on that window?
Urca is a beautiful place, but there was no space for me back there

Author's comments:

Urca is a upper class neighborhood in Southern Rio de Janeiro. Here is where Marisa Monte, one of Nando Reis's ex-girlfriend lives, so I guess this song is about or written for her.
