From the recording Quimera
This song came to me at the Metro in Hong Kong, where I sometimes lost myself in old and seemingly useless memories of the losses that shaped my life, making me who I am today. It is good to demystify facts and people that caused us pain in our path. Whether these were good or bad for us is irrelevant. Ultimately we understand our own resilience and strength - we can indeed tame wild-things that frightened us, live many lives and awaken to many dreams while honoring the love that shaped us into who we have become. Recorded at SetUp Music Studio in Goiania, with Sergim Veira and BororÃ³ Felipe, by Jairo Reis as sound engineer.
Tá na hora de amansar Esta doideira, este bicho, amorQue não tem descanso, Vaga mundo, e virou zumbí.Quantas vidas tem um gato?Quanto bicho tem no mato?Quantas malas leva um sonhador?Este Bicho-Doido tem um nome: é Amor.Se o Amor é uma quimeraQuem dera, pudera esquecerSe o amor é fantasiaUm dia quem sabe Acabe esta dor
It’s time to tameThis crazy wild-thing, my loveAlways restless, a wandererTurned zombie.How many lives does a cat have?How many wild-things live in the woods?How many suitcases can a dreamer carry?This crazy wild-thing has a name:It is Love.If Love is a chimeraI wish it could be forgottenIf love is a fantasyOne day, who can say I’ll be finished with this pain
