Saudades

I paddled out here to this island on a boat I built for one.

Left her behind because I was convinced that she’d been blocking out all of my sun.

And I’m pretending I don’t miss her as I sleep under the moon.


Saudades, saudades - they keep banging on my door.

And I’m pretending I don’t miss her but I can’t hide it anymore.

Saudades, saudades - they keep banging on my door.

And I’m pretending I don’t miss her but I can’t hide it anymore.


I spend my days out in the sunshine; I soak it in out on the sand.

But when the nightfall brings the cold, Things aren’t quite as easy as I’d planned.

And the cold wind’s the dying breath of a love that kept me warm.


Saudades, saudades - they keep banging on my door.

And I’m pretending I don’t miss her but I can’t hide it anymore.

Saudades, saudades - they keep banging on my door.

And I’m pretending I don’t miss her but I can’t hide it anymore.
