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 "Quiet Nights & Quiet Stars"
Antonio Carlos Jobim
trans. Mal Adam

A little space to strum along
A little love to make a song
Making lovers happy and contented
Nice and quiet to set the scene
Got the time to find a dream
In the view of Corcovado up above the city
I'd want and love my life to be
Just like this, just you and me
Till the lovers' flame is over

How alone could I be
The world was passing by me
But then I found your love and then I knew
That happiness is here, just me and you
