Sons da Escrita 362

1 de Outubro de 2011

Terceiro programa do ciclo Cecília Meireles

Compasso a compasso, palavra a palavra, alinham-se, rigorosos, os sons da escrita.

Quando um homem interroga a água pura dos sentidos e ousa caminhar, serenamente, os esquecidos atalhos de todas as memórias, acontecem viagens — viagens entre o quase tudo e o quase nada.

Então, da raíz dos nervos da memória surge a planta de uma vida escutada no silêncio dos sons da escrita.

Sons da Escrita – à volta de uma ideia de José-António Moreira.

Cecília Meireles

Se te abaixasses, montanha

Se te abaixasses, montanha,
poderia ver a mão
daquele que não me fala
e a quem meus suspiros vão.

Se te abaixasses, montanha,
poderia ver a face
daquele que se soubesse
deste amor talvez chorasse.

Se te abaixasses, montanha,
poderia descansar.
Mas não te abaixes, que eu quero
lembrar, sofrer, esperar.


Ain’t no mountain hight enough (Michael McDonald)

Listen, baby
Ain't no mountain high
Ain't no valley low
Ain't no river wide enough, baby

If you need me, call me
No matter where you are
No matter how far
Don't worry, baby
Just call my name
I'll be there in a hurry
You don't have to worry

'Cause baby,
There ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you, babe

Remember the day
I set you free
I told you you could always count on me, girl
From that day on I made a vow
I'll be there when you want me
Some way,some how

'Cause baby,
There ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you, babe

Oh, no, darling
No wind, no rain
No winter storm can stop me, baby.
No, no, baby
If you were my goal
If you're ever in trouble
I'll be there on the double
Just send for me
Oh baby!

My love is alive
Way down in my heart
Although we are miles apart
If you ever need a helping hand
I'll be there on the double
As fast as I can

Don't you know that
There ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you

Don't you know that
There ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough


Cecília Meireles

Não te fies do tempo nem da eternidade

Não te fies do tempo nem da eternidade
que as nuvens me puxam pelos vestidos,
que os ventos me arrastam contra o meu desejo.
Apressa-te, amor, que amanhã eu morro,
que amanhã morro e não te vejo!

Não demores tão longe, em lugar tão secreto,
nácar de silêncio que o mar comprime,
ó lábio, limite do instante absoluto!
Apressa-te, amor, que amanhã eu morro,
que amanhã morro e não te escuto!

Aparece-me agora, que ainda reconheço
a anêmona aberta na tua face
e em redor dos muros o vento inimigo...
Apressa-te, amor, que amanhã eu morro,
que amanhã morro e não te digo...


When I die (No Mercy)

Forever and always
When I Die I'll Keep On Living For You
You Give Me Strength When I Start To Worry
You Lift Me Up When I'm Feeling Sorry
You're Building Me Up With Love & Affection
When I'm In Danger You're My Protection
And I'm The One You Can Depend Upon
I'll Always Treat You Right, Never Do You Wrong
Just Feel The Love Burning Inside Of Me
It's Gonna Last For Eternity
For Eternity
For Eternity
Cause Baby I Love You
Baby I Need You
Yes, I Do
And When I Die I Keep On Living
You'll Always Have My Love Seeing You Through
I'll Be Your Angel Up In Heaven
Forever All My Love Will Shine On You
Cause Baby I Love You
Baby I Need You
Yes, I Do
Are You That Someone You Can Believe In?
No One Can Take Away What We're Feeling
Our Love Is Strong, It Goes On Forever
No One Will Ever Love You Better
And When Im gone I'll Still Be True To You
The Seed Of Love Lives Inside Of You
I'll Be Your Angel Up In Heaven
And All My Love Will Shine Down On You
For Eternity
For Eternity
Cause Baby I Love You
Baby I Need You
Yes, I Do
And When I Die I Keep On Living
You'll Always Have My Love Seeing You Through
I'll Be Your Angel Up In Heaven
Forever All My Love Will Shine On You
Cause Baby I Love You
Baby I Need You
Yes, I Do
And When I Die I Keep On Living
You'll Always Have My Love Seeing You Through - Seeing You Through
I'll Be Your Angel Up In Heaven - Up In Heaven
Forever All My Love Will Shine On You
Baby I Love You
Baby I Need You
Yes, I Do


Cecília Meireles

Ninguém me venha dar vida

Ninguém me venha dar vida,
que estou morrendo de amor,
que estou feliz de morrer,
que não tenho mal nem dor,
que estou de sonho ferida,
que não me quero curar,
que estou deixando de ser
e não me quero encontrar,
que estou dentro de um navio
que sei que vai naufragar,
já não falo e ainda sorrio,
porque está perto de mim
o dono verde do mar
que busquei desde o começo,
e estava apenas no fim.

Corações, por que chorais?
Preparai meu arremesso
para as algas e os corais.

Fim ditoso, hora feliz:
guardai meu amor sem preço,
que só quis a quem não quis.


God give me strength (Elvis Costello)

Now I have nothing
So God give me strength
'Cos I'm weak in her wake
And if I'm strong I might still break
And I don't have anything to share
That I won't throw away into the air
That song is sung out
This bell is rung out
She was the light that I'd bless
She took my last chance of happiness
So God give me strength
God give me strength

I can't hold on to her
God give me strength
When the phone doesn't ring
And I'm lost in imagining
Everything that kind of love is worth
As I tumble back down to the earth

That song is sung out
This bell is rung out
She was the light that I'd bless
She took my last chance of happiness
So God give me strength

God if she'd grant me her indulgence and decline
I might as well
Wipe her from my memory
Fracture the spell
As she becomes my enemy

Maybe I was washed out
Like a lip-print on his shirt
See, I'm only human
I want him to hurt
I want him
I want him to hurt

Since I lost the power to pretend
That there could ever be a happy ending
That song is sung out
This bell is rung out
She was the light that I'd bless
She took my last chance of happiness
So God give me strength
God give me strength


Eu vi bandeiras abertas
sobre o mar largo
e ouvi cantar as sereias.
Longe, num barco,
deixei meus olhos alegres,
trouxe meu sorriso amargo.

Bem no regaço da lua,
já não padeço.
Ai, seja como quiseres,
Amor-Perfeito,
gostaria que ficasses,
mas, se fores, não te esqueço.

And in the end

the love you'll take
