This is all about Fado (destiny, fate)
You asked me the other day,
If ,I may know what the Fado (fate) is about
I tell you ,I do not know
you praising me without knowing ( of being said or sang)
I only feel or sense the hours(moments)
I say to you that you will not know
and thats all I can say for now,
Of the lost souls,
Of the lost nights,
The bizzar shadows in Mouraria
and a crying guitar
a jealous nature of love,
the pain ,the sin
of all these things that exist,
Of all the sorrows
these are all about Fado (destiny,fate).
Sir, if you desire me ,
Wish to be on my side for always,
Do not speak of love only to me,
Speak of Fado and
all my punishment I was born with.
Fado is all I know about
and therefore there is not much I say.
