This song was recommended to me by a good friend from Brazil who celebrates his birthday today. So I thought I'd have a go today :-)

The original, Eu Não Existo Sem Você, is in Portuguese. I didn't dare to try singing in that language, so I used an English translation by Paul Sonnenberg. You can watch his version here:


The bad video quality is due to the fact that burglars stole my video camera, so I had to record this with my webcam.


You know as well as I just how this life was meant to be
That nothing in this world could stand between your love and me
You know as well as I the space between us disappears
If we accept love's longing and the blessings of its tears
And so my love, I'm not afraid of sorrow or of pain
For every path I take just brings me back to you again

Just as on moonlit nights we miss the beauty of the sea
Just as a song without a singer's just a melody
Just as the colours of the earth will dim without the rain
Just as a poet's words are born in loneliness and pain
To live without the ache of love is not the life I choose
You are my life for I have no existence without you

Original Portuguese lyrics:

Eu sei e você sabe, já que a vida quis assim
Que nada nesse mundo levará você de mim
Eu sei e você sabe que a distância não existe
Que todo grande amor
Só é bem grande se for triste
Por isso, meu amor
Não tenha medo de sofrer
Que todos os caminhos me encaminham pra você

Assim como o oceano
Só é belo com luar
Assim como a canção
Só tem razão se se cantar
Assim como uma nuvem
Só acontece se chover
Assim como o poeta
Só é grande se sofrer
Assim como viver
Sem ter amor não é viver
Não há você sem mim
E eu não existo sem você
