Astrud Gilberto – Quiet Nights lyrics

Quiet nights of quiet stars
Quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us

Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams
Quiet walks by quiet streams
And a window that looks out on Corcovado
Oh, how lovely

Um cantihno, Um violгo (A sweet song, a guitar)
Este amor, Uma canзгo (This love, A song)
P'ra fazer feliz a quem se ama (To make happy whom is loved.)

Muita calma p'ra pensar (Much calm to think)
E ter tempo p'ra sonhar (And have time to dream)
Da janela vк-se o Corcovado (From the window, Corcovado can be seen)
O Redentor, que lindo! (The Redeemer, how beautifull!)

Quero a vida sempre assim (I want life to always be like this.)
Com vocй perto de mim (With you right next to me)
Atй o apagar da velha chama. ('till the love ends.)

E eu que era triste (And I who was sad)
Descrente deste mundo (Having lost faith in this world)
Ao encontra vocк eu conheci (I found you and then I knew)
O que й felicidade, meu amor (what happiness is, my love)
