God Forgive Me


Que Deus Me Perdoe


Se a minha alma fechada
Se pudesse mostrar,
E o que eu sofro calada
Se pudesse contar,
Toda a gente veria
Quanto sou desgraçada
Quanto finjo alegria
Quanto choro a cantar...

Que Deus me perdoe
Se é crime ou pecado
Mas eu sou assim
E fugindo ao fado,
Fugia de mim.
Cantando dou brado
E nada me dói
Se é pois um pecado
Ter amor ao fado
Que Deus me perdoe.

Quanto canto não penso
No que a vida é de má,
Nem sequer me pertenço,
Nem o mal se me dá.
Chego a querer a verdade
E a sonhar - sonho imenso -
Que tudo é felicidade
E tristeza não há.

God Forgive Me

Versions: #1#2#3#4

If my closed soul
Could show itself,
And what I suffer in silence
If it could tell,
All the people would see
How damned I am
How I fake so much happiness
How much I cry as I sing...

God forgive me
If it's a crime or a sin
But this is who I am
And running from the fado*,
I was running from myself.
Singing, I scream
And nothing hurts me
So, if it's a sin
To love the fado
God forgive me.

When I sing, I don't think
About what's bad in life,
I don't even belong to myself,
Nor evil strikes me.
I even want the truth
And dream - an enormous dream -
That all is happiness
And there's no sadness.

* Fado (Portuguese word for "destiny", "fate") is a music genre which can be traced from the 1820s in Portugal, but probably with much earlier origins. In popular belief, fado is a form of music characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics, often about the sea or the life of the poor. However, in reality fado is simply a form of song which can be about anything, but must follow a certain structure.
The music is usually linked to the Portuguese word "saudade" which symbolizes the feeling of loss (a permanent, irreparable loss and its consequent life lasting damage)
