The great love

Versions: #1#2
Come what may,
there will always be a man
for a woman
A false love will be forgotten
and she will want to live again
No matter how it unfolds
the great love will prevail
the heart will know forgiveness
for all the tears that were shed

Author's comments:

Such lyrics cannot be translated literally, word for word. It would not show the heart of the poem, and it would not make much sense. I believe that this translation reveals the intent and the heart of the lyrics written by Vinicius de Moraes
