Only A Dream In Rio Lyrics

Artist: James Taylor

"LYRICSLRC.COM"
More than a distant land
Over a shining sea
More than the steaming green
More than the shining eyes

Well they tell me it's only a dream in rio
Nothing could be as sweet as it seems
On this very first day down
They remind me son have you so soon forgotten
Often as not it's rotten inside
And the mask soon slips away

Strange taste of a tropical fruit
Romantic language of the portuguese
Melody on a wooden flute
Somba floating in the summer breeze

It's alright you can stay asleep
You can close your eyes
You can trust the people of paradise
To call your keeper
And tender your goodbyes

Oh what a night wonderful one in a million
Frozen fire brazillian stars
Oh holy southern cross
Later on take me way downtown in a tin can;
Can't come down from the bandstand
I'm never thrown for such a loss when they say

Quando a nossa mae acordar
Andareimoz au sol
Quando a nossa mae acordar
Cantara' pelos sertao
Quando a nossa mea acordar
Todos os filios saberao
Todos os filios saberao
E regozilarao

Caught in the rays of the rising sun
On the run from the soldier's gun
Shouting out loud from the angry crowd
The mild the wild and the hungry child
I'll tell you there's more than a dream in rio
I was there on the very day
And my heart came back alive
There was more
More than the singing voices
More than the upturned faces
And more than the shining eyes

But it's more than the shining eye
More than the steaming green
More than the hidden hills
More than the concrete christ
More than a distant land
Over a shining sea
More than a hungry child
More like another time
Born of a million years
More than a million years

Additional lyrics in portuguese by fernando brant
From 'angelus'

A terra minha me
O mar o meu cho
O verde a luz
Sorrindo em meu olhar

Pois eu digo, mesmo um sonho o rio
Tudo ser como deve ser
Quero estar com voc l

Eu garanto, um lugar diferente
A minha gente carrega uma cruz
Mas tem fora pra mudar

Strange taste of a tropical fruit
Romantic language of the portuguese
Melody on a wooden flute
Samba floating in the summer breeze
Float on

It's alright you can stay asleep
You can close your eyes
You can trust the people of paradise
To call your keeper
And to tender your goodbyes

Oh, what a night
Wonderful one in a million
Frozen fire brazilian
Oh, holy southern cross
Later on take me way downtown
In a tin can
I can't come down from the bandstand
I'm never thrown for such a loss
When they say

O lugar de onde eu vim
Brota no corao
O lugar aonde eu nasci
Est no mundo e em mim

O lugar que a gente sonhar
Pode existir, existir
Vive em n e viver
Enquanto houver cano

Caught in the rays of the rising sun
On the run from the soldier's gun
Shouting out loud from
The angry crowd
The mild, the wild and the hungry child

I'll tell you it's more than
A dream in rio
I was there on the very day

D demais o corao, e era mais
Mais do que nossas vozes
Mais do que o nosso rosto
Mais do que a luz do olhar

But it's more than the shining eye
mais do que a luz do olhar
More than the steaming green
mais do que o verdejar
More than the hidden hills
tudo o que no se viu
More than the concrete christ
mais do que o redentor
More than a distant land
mais do que a terra me
Over the shining sea
mais do que o c e o mar
More than a hungry child
a fome a nos doer
More like another time
o tempo a nos curtir
Born of a million years
mais do que um milho
More than a million years
de anos pra sonhar

Quando a nossa me acordar
When our mother awakes
Andaremos ao sol
We shall walk in the sun
Quando a nossa me acordar
When our mother awakes
Cantar pelo serto
She shall sing in the wilderness
Quando a nossa me acordar
When our mother awakes
Todos os filhos sabero
All her children shall know
Todos os filhos sabero
All her children shall know
E regozijaro
And they shall rejoice
