Cesaria Evora
Vida Tem Um So Vida (English translation)

Vida Tem Um So Vida
Life Has Only One Life
Sô na madrugada di um note sem fim
Na estrada na lua cheia
Na terra di ninguem
Bô parcê um cantar di sol na nha ôie
Luar na nha sonho
Noiva d'madrugada suave juvenil
Bô prendê'me nha alma
'M contá até mil dotes
Di beleza na bô
Qui dixá preso nha pobre coraçon

Ma na prisâo d'nha liberdade sem bô
Cu nha razâo magoado sem gosto
Na nha alma um vazio
Dum tristeza profundo
'M conchê um verdade dess mundo
C'ma vida tem um sô vida
Alone in the dawn of an endless night
On the road, on the full moon
In a land of nobody
You seems a song of sun in my ears
A moonlight in my dream
Bride of the smooth and young dawn
You bind my soul
I count till thousand dowries
Of beauty in you
That captured my poor heart
But in the jail of my freedom without you
With my mind hurt, with distaste
In my soul a emptiness
Of a deep sadness
I learn a truth of this world:
That life has only one life
