Lyrics:Vinícius de Moraes The English lyrics were written by Norman Gimbel. Music:Antônio Carlos Jobim
The song was publishe 1963.
At first time you heard the song, you felt murmuring full of melacholy with some pain in the heart... It's just such a song. Bossa Nova has two faces: one is just in full of joy and gay; and another has dark-shaded side softly stirred by the aches of chest like this song.
How insensitive I must have seemed When she told me that she loved me How unmoved and cold I must have seemed When she told me so sincerely
Why she must have asked Did I just turn and stare in icy silence? What was I to say? What can you say When a love affair is over?
Now she's gone away and I'm alone With a memory of her last look Vague and drawn and sad I see it still All her heartbreak in that last look
Why she must have asked, Did I just turn and stare in icy silence What was I to do? What can one do When a love affair is over?
