Samba Noir

 

Samba Noir

When she dances in the space
My body loses its fatigue
My lip shakes a smile
When she swaps the move
My chest loses the beat
My eyes know where to go

Went out, went out of time
Fell down, my samba fell down

When she shays that she doesn’t say
When she pretends that she’s mine
When I let myself go*
When she wants one more swig
When she swaps my cup
I let life go by

Went out, went out of time
Fell down, my samba fell down

I respect the decision
She knows what she wants
I want no discussion
She knows what she wants
From me
From me
From me…
She knows what she wants

When she goes up, I’m saved
Goes down from the asphalt wall
I let a samba in the air
Wraps me in the daybreak
Humming Cartola**
At the table of another bar

Went out, went out of time
Fell down, my samba fell down

I respect the decision
She knows what she wants
I want no discussion
She knows what she wants
From me
From me
From me…
She knows what she wants
