Salvador Sobral – Amar pelos dois

I really enjoy watching Eurovision. This year’s winner was Salvador Sobral. Salvador is from Portugal, he was born in Lisbon. Listening to his song during the competition, I had goose bumps. I admit that I even voted for him! Through this course I could find out what he is singing about, because Mariana translated this song for me.

 

original text

Se um dia alguém perguntar por mim
Diz que vivi p’ra te amar
Antes de ti, só existi
Cansado e sem nada p’ra dar
Meu bem, ouve as minhas preces
Peço que regresses, que me voltes a querer
Eu sei que não se ama sozinho
Talvez devagarinho possas voltar a aprender
Meu bem, ouve as minhas preces
Peço que regresses, que me voltes a querer
Eu sei que não se ama sozinho
Talvez devagarinho possas voltar a aprender
Se o teu coração não quiser ceder
Não sentir paixão, não quiser sofrer
Sem fazer planos do que virá depois
O meu coração pode amar pelos dois

translation

If one day someone asks about me
Say that I lived just to love you
Before you, I only existed
Tired and without a thing to offer
My dear, listen to my prayers
I ask you to come back, that you come back to love me
I know we can’t love alone
Maybe little by little you can learn again
My dear, listen to my prayers
I ask you to come back, that you come back to love me
I know we can’t love alone
Maybe little by little you can learn again
If your heart doesn’t wish to do so
To feel the passion, If it doesn’t want to suffer
Without making plans about what will happen
My Heart can love for the both of us
We also listened to other Portuguese songs but this is the most beautiful!
