my very last effort this FAWM, written directly into the Add A Song form. it's bilingual and it's about seeing you all again here next year for the same amazing mission: creation and community.
the first quote in the end comes from the last track on Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's first album. the second quote comes from the very end of the film "Dancer In The Dark", but translated into portuguese. (the song that says "bye bye, so long, farewell" actually exists: it's "Pedacinhos" by Guilherme Arantes)
the arrangement I have in my head is based on the KPP track I quoted and also on the first Xuxa hit songs from the late 80s. so basically happy upbeat music to play along the end credits of a morning TV show aimed at children.
the english translation of the lines in portuguese are below the original lyrics.
há uma canção que diz
"bye bye, so long, farewell"
mas o meu coração me diz
"see you very soon, be well"
I know that sadness comes naturally
mas há sempre alegria por vir
it won't take long again for us to meet
há sempre espaço pra vocês aqui
vamos todas estar juntas no ano que vem
we'll be all together next year again
so we can talk about all the things that went by
sobre tudo que passou vamos poder conversar
"see you, see you, see you again
see you, see you, see you next time"...
"dizem que é a última canção. eles não nos conhecem, dá pra ver. só será a última canção se deixarmos ser."
there's a song that says
but my heart tells me
there's always joy to come
there's always room for you here
let's all be together next year
we'll be able to talk about all that happened
"they say it's the last song. they don't know us, you see. it's only the last song if we let it be."
