Lyrics

English & Portuguese
 

Saudade, saudade

I've tried to write
A million other songs but
Somehow I can't move on, oh you're gone

Takes time, alright
And I know it's no one's fault but
Somehow I can't move on, oh you're gone

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Tem tanto que trago comigo
Foi sempre o meu porto de abrigo
E agora nada faz sentido
Perdi o meu melhor amigo

E se não for demais
Peço por sinais
Resta uma só palavra

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

I've tried, alright
But it's killing me inside
Thought you'd be by my side always

Longing, longing*

I've tried to write
A million other songs but
Somehow I can't move on, oh you're gone

Takes time, alright
And I know it's no one's fault but
Somehow I can't move on, oh you're gone

Longing
Longing
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Longing
Longing
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

There's so much I carry with me
He was always my safe haven
And now nothing makes sense
I lost my best friend

And if it's not too much
I ask for signs
Only one word remains

Longing
Longing
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Longing
Longing
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

I've tried, alright
But it's killing me inside
Thought you'd be by my side always

*Longing: The untranslatable Portuguese term Saudade refers to a melancholic longing or yearning. A recurring theme in Portuguese and Brazilian literature, saudade evokes a sense of loneliness and incompleteness

Nostalgie, nostalgie

J'ai essayé d'écrire
Un million d'autres chansons mais
Je n'arrive pas à passer à autre chose, oh tu es parti

Ça prend du temps, c'est vrai
Et je sais que ce n'est la faute de personne mais
Je n'arrive pas à passer à autre chose, oh tu es parti

Nostalgie
Nostalgie
Rien de plus que je ne puisse dire
Dis-le d'une meilleure manière

Nostalgie
Nostalgie
Rien de plus que je ne puisse dire
Dis-le d'une meilleure manière

Il y a tellement de choses que je garde en moi
Il a toujours été mon havre de paix
Et maintenant plus rien n'a de sens
J'ai perdu mon meilleur ami

Et si ce n'est pas de trop
Je te demandes des signaux
Il ne reste qu'un seul mot

Nostalgie
Nostalgie
Rien de plus que je ne puisse dire
Dis-le d'une meilleure manière

Nostalgie
Nostalgie
Rien de plus que je ne puisse dire
Dis-le d'une meilleure manière

Rien de plus que je ne puisse dire
Dis-le d'une meilleure manière

J'ai essayé, c'est vrai
Mais ça me tue de l'intérieur
Je pensais que tu serais toujours de mon côté
