Pink Martini - Tempo perdido | Live from Portland - 2005

Excerpted from Pink Martini's concert DVD release "Discover the World," this performance was filmed live in concert at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland Oregon on December 31, 2005, featuring vocalist China Forbes. Pink Martini's version of "Tempo perdido" was originally heard on the band's third album, Hey Eugene! The song was written, in Portuguese, by the Brazilian musician and composer Ataulfo Alves, and original sung in 1934 by the superstar Carmen Miranda. This version features Thomas Lauderdale on the piano, China Forbes on vocals, Gavin Bondy on trumpet, with a trombone solo by Robert Taylor.

LYRICS

Mesmo derramando lágrima
Eu não te posso perdoar
Chega, eu que tenho sofrido
Todo o meu tempo perdido
Nunca mais eu quero amar

Hoje vivo procurando
Esquecer tua maldade
Vou viver no abandono
Pra fazer tua vontade
Apesar de ser sincera
Tu me fizeste chorar
Não faz mal, segue o destino
Que o mundo vai te ensinar
(Mas, mesmo assim...)

Mesmo derramando lágrima
Eu não te posso perdoar
Chega, eu que tenho sofrido
Todo o meu tempo perdido
Nunca mais eu quero amar


*translation*

Even as these tears are shedding
I cannot forgive you
Enough, I who have suffered
All my wasted time
I never want to love again

Today I live looking
To forget your cruelty
I will live in abandonment
Just as you wished
Despite being sincere
You made me cry
Never mind – destiny follows
That the world will teach you
(But even still …)

Even as these tears are shedding
I cannot forgive you
Enough, I who have suffered
All my wasted time
I never want to love again
