Longe do Meu Lado

Legião Urbana

This is a wonderful song, very beautiful. This is so melancholic, yet elegant. It reminds me of an aphorism found in The Princess Bride:

"Life is pain! Anyone who says different is trying to sell you something."

Far From My Side

Legião Urbana

If passion were really a balm,
the world wouldn't appear so equivocal.
I give you kindness, respect and a caress,
But understand, I am not enamored.

Passion already passed in my life
It was good even but in the end everything went wrong
And now I carry with me
A sad pain and a scarred heart.

And look that I tried my path
but everything now is something from the past
I want respect e always to have someone
That understands me and always stays by my side
But I don't, don't want to be enamored.

Passion wants blood and ruined hearts,
and saudade is just a hurt for having been
made so ruined
And this slavery and this pain
I no longer want.

When I believed that everything was a consummated fact
Came a scythe and threw you far
far from my side.

I am not longer at the brink of tears
We can stay together
And live for the future, the the past
See our world

I also know that they say
that there doesn't exist a wrong love
But understand, I don't want to be enamored.
