[English lyrics]. Influenced by music from a young age by her record store owner father, Gal Costa became one of Brazil's foremost female tropicalismo movement singers and guitar players during the late 1960s and 70s. Along with her friend Maria Bethânia, she became a political activist often coming into conflict with Brazil's government when dissent in music was censored.

In 1999, Gal Costa pointed her work in the direction of a safe harbor: Tom Jobim; looking for refuge in the beautiful viola of Bossa Nova. The show opened in São Paulo, where the double CD and a DVD was recorded. The album was named "Gal Costa Canta Tom Jobim ao Vivo".

The highlights of this work are the excellent recordings of Derradeira Primavera, Bonita, and Por causa de Você. And because of this show, Gal traveled for a year overseas and to the great cities of Brazil, always singing to large audiences. Tom Jobim, who had passed in 1994, would have approved.

Por Causa de Você (English Translation) lyrics:

Ah, take a look and you'll see the way I have become,
And the way things became
Sadness and sorrow are here in all little things
You touched with your hands.

This loving home was a home so happy to protect you and keep you with care
The flowers in the window were smiling, were glowing,
Just knowing you were there.

Listen my love nevermore,
Don't ever go away...
'Cause we are you are your life and your dream
And we want you to stay...

Come in my love, come to me
Don't let this heartless world bring another good bye,
Embrace me in a simple way ,
Don't speak, don't remember, and darling don't cry.

Por Causa de Você lyrics:

Ah, você está vendo só
Do jeito que eu fiquei
E que tudo ficou
Uma tristeza tão grande
Nas coisas mais simples
Que você tocou
A nossa casa querido
Já estava acostumada
Guardando você
As flores na janela
Sorriam, cantavam
Por causa de você
Olhe meu bem nunca mais
Nos deixe por favor
Somos a vida e o sonho
Nós somos o amor
Entre meu bem por favor
Não deixe o mundo mau lhe levar outra vez
Me abrace simplesmente
Não fale, não lembre
Não chore meu bem
