Lyrics

Quem pergunta por mim

Já deve saber do riso no fim de tanto sofrer

que eu não desisti das minhas bandeiras

Caminhos, trincheiras, da noite!

Eu que sempre apostei na minha paixão

Guardei um pais no meu coração

um foco de luz seduz a razão

De repente a visão da esperanca

quis esse sonhador, aprendiz de tanto suor, ser feliz

Num gesto de amor meu país acendeu a cor.

Verde as matas no olhar, ver de perto, ver de novo um lugar,

ver adiante sede de navegar verdejantes tempos

mudanca dos ventos no meu coração...

 

Translation:

Those who ask about me, must already know

That at the end of so much suffering, there’s laughter.

That I never gave up on my flags, on my path,

Never left the trenches, not the night-singing

I, who against all odds pursued my passion,

Kept my homeland in my heart.

A ray of light has seduced reason

A sudden vision of hope overtook this dreamer.

This hard-working apprentice has chosen to be happy

In a gesture of love, my homeland’s colors came to life.

Green, the forest in my eye, to see it up-close, too see a place again

To see the way forward, a desire to sail onward, a time for greening

A change of the winds has come to my heart.
