Only A Dream In Rio

More than a distant land
Over a shining sea
More than the steaming green
More than the shining eyes
Well they tell me its 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 its 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
Its 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;
Cant come down from the bandstand
Im 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 soldiers gun
Shouting out loud from the angry crowd
The mild the wild and the hungry child
Ill tell you theres 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 its 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
Portuguese version
Performed by james taylor & milton nascimento
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
Its 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 cant come down from the bandstand
Im 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 ns e viver
Enquanto houver cano
Caught in the rays of the rising sun
On the run from the soldiers gun
Shouting out loud from
The angry crowd
The mild, the wild and the hungry child
Ill tell you its more than
A dream in rio
I was there on the very day
Di 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 its 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 cu 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)

A translation of the portuguese:
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
