Quiet night Antonio Carlos Jobim
[D9]Quiet nights of quiet stars,
Um cantinho, um violao
Quiet chords from my guitar,
Esse amor uma cancao,
g7 Gb7 Fmaj7 (*)
Floating on the silence that surrounds me.
Pra fazer felice a quem se ama.
Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams,
Muita calma pra pensar,
Quiet walks by quiet streams,
E ter tempo pra sonhar,
D9 d7 Abo (**)
And a window looking out on the mountains and the sea, how lovely!
Da janela ve-se a Corcovado o Redentor, que lindo!
[D9]This is how I want to be,
Quero a vida sempres assim,
Here with you so close to me,
Com voce perto de mim,
g7 Gb7 Fmaj7
Until the final flicker of life's ember.
Ate a apagar da velha chama.
I who was lost and lonely,
E eu que era triste,
Believing life was only,
Descrente desse mundo,
d7 G(b9b13) e7 a7
A bitter tragic joke have found with you,
Ao encontrar voce eu conheci,
d7 G13 G(b9b13) C Bb9 F+7 (**)
The meaning of existence, oh my love.
O que e felicidade, meu amor.
(*) They often improvise here playing around with a7, g7, and Fmaj7.
(**) Listen carefully here. The shifts are tough.
