159 – A Song – Eu e a Brisa

In this episode, we are going to learn some multi-meaning words and one more use of the verbs in the Subjunctive.

Today’s song is called “Eu e a Brisa” (The Breeze and I) by Johnnie Alf. He introduced, in Brazil, a new way of singing, playing, and composing several years before the term “bossa nova” was coined. Tom Jobim, Carlos Lyra and all those who came after had some Johnnie Alf influences.

Eu e a Brisa
Johnnie Alf

Ah! Se a juventude que essa brisa canta
Ficasse aqui comigo mais um pouco
Eu poderia esquecer a dor
De ser tão só pra ter um sonho

E aí então quem sabe alguém chegasse
Buscando um sonho em forma de desejo
Felicidade então pra nós seria

E depois que a tarde nos trouxesse a lua
Se o amor chegasse eu não resistiria
E a madrugada acalentaria a nossa paz

Fica… Oh! Brisa fica pois talvez quem sabe
O inesperado faça uma surpresa
E traga alguém que queira te escutar
E junto a mim queira ficar
