Story

Recorded at the SetUp Music Studio in Goiania, Brazil, this song was a sequel to Sonho Azul, written in 1966 by Teca Hezim and I, recorded in the album Voyage to Vera Cruz, with Douglas Lora. This time, the melody is my own, with lyrics by Renato Castelo. An amazing addition of Jairo Reis on electric guitar put the icing on the cake of this inspired song arrangement by Bororó Felipe, master arranger and player.

Lyrics

 Será que este mar
que olha aqui pra mim
Sabe do outro mar
que não tem fim
Que a gente cria pra se navegar
Não se perder, nem se entregar
Será que o horizonte
é o mesmo que sonhei
Quando inventei um Sonho Azul
E esta nuvem branca que passou
Eu escrevi, e não voltou.
Será que neste olhar que olha pra mim
Tem uma luz ainda a brilhar
Não se apagou e sabe bem por quê
É o Mar Azul a me esperar

Translation:

I wonder if the sea
That now stares at me
Knows of the other  
Endless sea
We create wherein to sail
Not getting lost nor anchoring
I wonder if this horizon
Is the same one I was dreaming of
When I invented a Blue Dream
And that white cloud passing by
I wrote about it, and it never returned.
I wonder if in these eyes that look at me
A light still burns
It hasn’t dimmed, and I know why
A Blue Sea awaits me.
