Antonio Carlos Jobim was a great songwriter. These new translations give a more accurate English version of the songs we know and love. With full respect to the original lyricists we hope to give Jobim fans a new enjoyment and appreciation of these timeless classics.
AKA "The Dreamer"
Antonio Carlos Jobim
Trans. Mal Adam
I live to dream
Just a dream dreaming endlessly
And all the time is it true could you really like me?
The hours are for talking of stars
Oceans and heaven too
Saying just how good it could be with you
So come into my life before my dream ends
People go by - they are smiling but I need more than friends
So I'm just talking of stars
The ocean and the heaven's moon
I live to dream - can you come to me soon?
