Aguas de Março lletra

Aguas de Março – Waters of March

Tema composat per Antonio Carlos Jobim i gravat per primera vegada al 1972

Es un tema que desde que vaig descobrir a en Tom, no l’he parat d’interpretar, així que no podia faltar al disc.

La novetat va ser que fins llavors el cantava sempre en portugués, de fet, durant la meva estada al Brasil, vaig tenir el plaer de gravar-lo en Portugués, si el vols escoltar Aguas de Março a Sao Paulo.

 

A stick, a stone,
It’s the end of the road,

It’s the rest of a stump,
It’s a little alone

It’s a sliver of glass,
It is life, it’s the sun,

It is night, it is death,
It’s a trap, it’s a gun

The oak when it blooms,
A fox in the brush,

A knot in the wood,
The song of a thrush

The wood of the wind,
A cliff, a fall,

A scratch, a lump,
It is nothing at all

It’s the wind blowing free,
It’s the end of the slope,

It’s a beam, it’s a void,
It’s a hunch, it’s a hope

And the river bank talks
of the waters of March,

It’s the promise of life, It’s the joy in your heart

 

The foot, the ground,
The flesh and the bone,

The beat of the road,
A slingshot’s stone

A fish, a flash,
A silvery glow,

A fight, a bet,
The range of a bow

The bed of the well,
The end of the line,

The dismay in the face,
It’s a loss, it’s a find

A spear, a spike,
A point, a nail,

A drip, a drop,
The end of the tale

A truckload of bricks
in the soft morning light,

The shot of a gun
in the dead of the night

A mile, a must,
A thrust, a bump,

It’s a girl, it’s a rhyme,
It’s a cold, it’s the mumps

The plan of the house,
The body in bed,

And the car that got stuck,
It’s the mud, it’s the mud

A float, a drift,
A flight, a wing,

A hawk, a quail,
The promise of spring

And the riverbank talks
of the waters of March,

It’s the end of the strain,
It’s the joy in your heart

 

A stick, a stone,
It’s the end of the road

It’s the rest of a stump,
It’s a little alone

A snake, a stick,
It is John, it is Joe,

It’s a thorn in your hand
and a cut in your toe

A point, a grain,
A bee, a bite,

A blink, a buzzard,
A sudden stroke of night

A pin, a needle,
A sting, a pain,

A snail, a riddle,
A wasp, a stain

A pass in the mountains,
A horse and a mule,

In the distance the shelves
rode three shadows of blue

And the riverbank talks
of the waters of March,

It’s the promise of life
in your heart, in your heart
