Lesson Transcript

Bom dia. Ei, gente! tudo bem? My name is Paloma. Welcome to Top Portuguese Words. Today’s topic is 5 amazing love quotes from Brazilian songs.
1. Amor é fogo que arde sem se ver;
É ferida que dói e não se sente;
É um contentamento descontente;
É dor que desatina sem doer
“Love is a fire that burns unseen,
a wound that aches yet isn’t felt,
an always discontent contentment,
a pain that rages without hurting”
Let’s start with a poem from Luís Vaz de Camões. It's also in the song "Monte Castelo" from Legião Urbana, a rock band.
Amor é fogo que arde sem se ver;
É ferida que dói e não se sente;
É um contentamento descontente;
É dor que desatina sem doer
“Love is a fire that burns unseen,
a wound that aches yet isn’t felt,
an always discontent contentment,
a pain that rages without hurting”
It’s very poetic, right? Legião Urbana was a very famous rock band in Brazil and they don’t exist anymore, but many, many young people still know them.
2. Você é assim, um sonho pra mim. E quando eu não te vejo, eu penso em você desde o amanhecer até quando eu me deito.
“You are like this, a dream to me. And when I don't see you, I think of you from dawn till when I lie down.”
Velha Infância - Tribalistas
Você é assim, um sonho pra mim. E quando eu não te vejo, eu penso em você desde o amanhecer até quando eu me deito.
“You are like this, a dream to me. And when I don't see you, I think of you from dawn till until I lie down.”
That’s so cute, right? I love this song. Tribalistas is a pop rock band and they had many hit songs in Brazil.
3. Eu sei que vou te amar
Por toda a minha vida eu vou te amar
Em cada despedida eu vou te amar
Desesperadamente
Eu sei que vou te amar
“I know that I’ll love you
As long as I’m living, I’ll love you
In every “goodbye” said, I will love you
Desperately
I know that I’ll love you”
Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar - Vinicius de Moraes
Just by that word, you know that this song is gonna make you cry, right?
Eu sei que vou te amar
Por toda a minha vida eu vou te amar
Em cada despedida eu vou te amar
Desesperadamente
Eu sei que vou te amar
If you don’t know any word in Portuguese, today you’ve memorized amar “to love.”
“I know that I’ll love you
As long as I’m living, I’ll love you
In every “goodbye” said, I’ll love you
Desperately
I know that I’ll love you”
That’s one of the most romantic songs we have in Brazilian Portuguese. This song was created by Vinicius de Moraes and Tom Jobim which was one of the creators of Bossa Nova.
4. Por você, eu dançaria tango no teto, eu limparia os trilhos do metrô, eu iria a pé do Rio a Salvador.
“For you, I would dance tango in the ceiling, I would clean the subway tracks, I would walk from Rio to Salvador.”
Por Você - Barão Vermelho which translates to “for you.”
Por você, eu dançaria tango no teto, eu limparia os trilhos do metrô, eu iria a pé do Rio a Salvador.
“For you, I would dance tango in the ceiling, I would clean the subway tracks, I would walk from Rio to Salvador.”
That’s a very long walk. Barão Vermelho was a very famous rock band in the ‘90s in Brazil.
5. Acontece que na vida a gente tem
Que ser feliz por ser amado por alguém
Porque eu te amo
Eu te adoro, meu amor
“It turns out that in life we have
To be happy to be loved by someone
Because I love you
I adore you, my love”
Não Quero Dinheiro “I Don’t Want Money”
Acontece que na vida a gente tem
Que ser feliz por ser amado por alguém
Porque eu te amo
Eu te adoro, meu amor
“It turns out that in this life we have
To be happy to be loved by someone
Because I love you
I adore you, my love”
Tim Maia passed away in 1998, but he was very famous because of his very strong and distinctive voice.
