lyrics

**ME AND YOU (“EU E TU” - poem and translation by Patrícia Magalhães)

I, who says yes and no
the drying fountain
the bright side of darkness

Sound invading silence
sea, horizon, firmament
brave waves at dusk
and shadows on the ground

You, who consents and surrenders
the fresh herb scent
the purity of the chant

The face that shines in smiles
salt, sun, heaven
I contradict
You, contraction
