Fado Pinoia - inglês

Fado Pinoia
English text by David Mendonça
Popular Lyric

You know well—and don’t lie—
How much I loved you.
I have nothing, for I only ever had
the great love that I gave you.
They say that longing will pass,
and never return.
With longing I watched you leave,
But the longing has remained.
For me to be happier,
I don’t know what I would desire:
Only in suffering can I have you,
And I suffer if I do not see you.
I’ve heard that the person who leaves,
Leaves with infinite loneliness.
But when you left, you left behind
All the loneliness for me.
