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 "Once I Loved"
Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinicius de Moraes
trans. Mal Adam

I have loved
And with all of my heart I have loved more than I should have loved
And I cried
When the suffering is coming I'm lost in feelings that I hide
Then you're here
My sad never-endings just gone because you're always near
I found in you the reason to live and to love
Suffer nevermore
I'll never suffer now
Peace I've found
Because love is the saddest thing when it's breaking down
