My way back home.

My way back home.

Amor como em Casa

Regresso devagar ao teu
sorriso como quem volta a casa. Faço de conta que
não é nada comigo. Distraído percorro
o caminho familiar da saudade,
pequeninas coisas me prendem,
uma tarde num café, um livro. Devagar
te amo e às vezes depressa,
meu amor, e às vezes faço coisas que não devo,
regresso devagar a tua casa,
compro um livro, entro no
amor como em casa.

Manuel António Pina

in “Ainda não é o Fim nem o Princípio do Mundo. Calma é Apenas um Pouco Tarde”

It shall pass.

There’s not a single spark
To ignite all the fireworks that could light up this dark
And when the movie ends, who knows how it began?

Before we say goodbye
Please find the right tone and then go ahead and try
I see clouds taking form, I’m watching the storm from a far

And it’s alright to give in,
I know that most of this will pass
Still all that comes with you will stay,
Like it was built to last
But it shall pass
It shall pass

We won’t get to the part
Where we die and we ‘re born and we die back to the start
We’ll skip those silly words, escape the angry mob

Well before all is gone
I’ll take in this moment, I’ll cherish this thought
A ray of sunlight is burning everything in sight,
burning black and white

And it’s alright to give in,
I know that most of this will pass
Still all that comes with you will stay,
Like it was built to last
But it shall pass
It shall pass
