LISTEN TO

Minha vida é andar
Por esse país
Pra ver se um dia
Descanso feliz
Guardando a recordações
Das terras onde passei
Andando pelos sertões
E dos amigos que lá deixei.

Chuva e sol
Poeira e carvão
Longe de casa
Sigo o roteiro
Mais uma estação
E a alegria no coração

Minha vida é andar
Por esse país
Pra ver se um dia
Descanso feliz
Guardando a recordações
Das terras onde passei
Andando pelos sertões
E dos amigos que lá deixei

Mar e terra
Inverno e verão
Mostre o sorriso
Mostre a alegria
Mas eu mesmo não
E a saudade no coração

Repeta as letras

My life is to wander
across this country
to see if one day
I can rest happy
guarding the memories
of lands I have traversed
travelling through the interior
and of friends I left behind.

Rain and sun
dust and coal
far from home
following the road map
one more season
and joy in my heart

My life is to wander
across this country
to see if one day
I can rest happy
guarding the memories
of lands I have traversed
travelling through the interior
and of friends I left behind.

Sea and land
winter and summer
show the smile
show the joy
but I don't really
and longing in my heart

Repeat lyrics
