Lyrics

Eu sei lá, em que dia da semana vamos
Sei lá, qual é a estação do ano
Sei lá, talvez nem sequer queira saber
Eu sei lá, porque dizem que estou louca
Sei lá, já não sou quem fui sou outra
Sei lá, pergunta-me amanhã talvez eu saiba responder

E eu juro, eu prometo e eu faço, e eu rezo
Mas no fim o que sobra de mim
E tu dizes coisas belas, estórias de telenovelas
Mas no fim tiras mais um pouco de mim

Então força leva mais um bocado
Que eu não vou a nenhum lado
Leva todo o bom que há em mim
Que eu não fujo, eu prometo
Eu perdoo e eu esqueço
Mas no fim o que sobra de mim

Mas tu sabes lá, as guerras que eu tenho
Tu sabes lá, das canções que eu componho
Tu sabes lá, talvez nem sequer queiras saber
Mas tu sabes lá, da maneira que te amo
Tu sabes lá, digo a todos que é engano
Tu sabes lá, pergunto-te amanhã mas não vais saber responder

E eu juro, eu prometo e eu faço, e eu rezo
Mas no fim o que sobra de mim
E tu dizes coisas belas, estórias de telenovelas
Mas no fim tiras mais um pouco de mim

Então força leva mais um bocado
Que eu não vou a nenhum lado
Leva todo o bom que há em mim
Que eu não fujo, eu prometo
Eu perdoo e eu esqueço
Mas no fim o que sobra de mim

Sim eu juro
Sim eu juro

Lyrics (English)

I don’t know, what day of the week
I don’t know, what is the season
I don’t know, maybe you don’t even want to know
I don’t know, because they say I’m crazy
I don’t know, I’m not who I was anymore
I don’t know, ask me tomorrow maybe I can answer

And I swear, I promise and I do, and I pray
But in the end what’s left of me
And you say beautiful things, soap opera stories
But in the end you take a little more from me

So strength takes a little while
That I’m not going anywhere
Take all the good in me
That I don’t run away, I promise
I forgive and I forget
But in the end what’s left of me

But you don’t know, the wars I have
You know, the songs I write
You don’t know, maybe you don’t even want to know
But you don’t know, the way I love you
You don’t know, I tell everyone it’s a mistake
You don’t know, I’ll ask you tomorrow but you won’t know how to answer

And I swear, I promise and I do, and I pray
But in the end what’s left of me
And you say beautiful things, soap opera stories
But in the end you take a little more from me

So strength takes a little while
That I’m not going anywhere
Take all the good in me
That I don’t run away, I promise
I forgive and I forget
But in the end what’s left of me

Yes I swear
Yes I swear
