Minor Fado

Versions: #1#2
My eyes are two candles
Casting a sad light on my face
Your eyes are two candles
Casting a sad light on my face
Scarred by torments
Of longing and grief
Scarred by torments
Of longing and grief
 
When I hear the ringing of the trinities
And the afternoon is already coming to its end
When I hear the ringing of the trinities
And the afternoon is already coming to its end
I pray in missing you
An “Our Father” for me
I pray in missing you
An “Our Father” for me.
 
But you do not know how to pray
Nor ache in mourning
But you do not know how to pray
Nor ache in mourning
Why do you unnerve me
Why do I want you so much?
Why do you unnerve me
Why do I want you so much?
 
You are to my despair
As the clouds that fly high
You are to my despair
As the clouds that fly high
Every day I wait for you
Every day you stand me up
Every day I wait for you
Every day you stand me up
 
Thanks!

Author's comments:

In the video, Ana Moura seems to start the last stanza"
Mas para meu desespero -- But to my despair "
In addition, she starts the fado both on the CD and on the youtube video "Os meus olhos são dois círios" and I have translated accordingly.
