Lyrics AI, AI,
QUE SAUDADE
EU TENHODA BAHIA,
AI, SE EU ESCUTASSE
O QUE MAMAE DIZIA:
BEM, NAO VA DEIXAR
A SUAMAE AFLITA,
A GENTE FAZ
O QUE O
CARACAO DITA,
MAS,
ESTE MUNDO
E FEITO DE MALDADE,
ILUSAO.
AI, SE EU ESCUTASSE,
HOJE NAO SOFRIA,
AI, ESTA SAUDADE
DENTRO DO MEU PEITO.
AI, SE TER SAUDADE
E ALGUM DEFEITO
EU PELO MENOS MERECO
O DIREITO
DE TER ALGUEM
COM QUEM EU POSSA
ME CONFESSAR.

PONHASE
NO MEU LUGAR
E VEJA
COMO SOFRE
UM HOMEM INFELIZ.
QUE TEVE
QUE DESABA FAR
DIZENDO A TODO
O MUNDO
O QUE NINGUEM DIZ,
VEJA QUE SITUACAO
E VEJA COMO SOFRE
UM POBRE CORACAO,
POBRE DE QUEM
A CREDITA
NA GLORIA
E NO DINHEIRO
PARA SER FELIZ.

English lyric:

I KEEP HOPING
SOMEDAY
THAT YOU'LL FIND ME,
I KEEP PRAYING
THAT YOU WILL
REMIND ME
WHAT I'M HERE FOR,
WHAT I'M LONGING FOR
WHAT I WANT MORE,
NOW THAT YOU ARE GONE
MY PURPOSE SEEMS TO BE
TO KEEP ON SEARCHING
ENDLESSLY.
WON'T YOU COME NOW,
RIGHT NOW
WHILE I'M PRAYING,
THAT'S MY HEART
YOU HEAR,
MY HEART IS SAYING
WHAT I'M HERE FOR,
WHAT I'M LONGING FOR
WHAT I WANT MORE,
NOW THAT YOU ARE GONE
MY PURPOSE SEEMS TO BE
TO SING THIS MELODY.

WISHING ON THE MOON,
REACHING FOR THE STARS,
WAITING FOR A MIRACLE
TO TAKE US BOTH TO MARS.
REACHING FOR THE STARS,
WISHING ON THE MOON,
WAITING FOR A MIRACLE
TO HELP ME SING
THIS TUNE.

I KNOW THAT SOMEDAY
YOU'RE GOING TO FIND ME,
I KNOW THAT SOMEDAY
YOU WILL REMIND ME
WHAT I'M HERE FOR,
WHAT I'M LONGING FOR
WHAT I WANT MORE,
NOW THAT YOU ARE GONE
MY PURPOSE SEEMS TO BE
TO KEEP ON SEARCHING
ENDLESSLY.
WON'T YOU COME NOW,
RIGHT NOW
WHILE I'M SINGING
THAT'S MY HEART
YOU HEAR,
THAT BELL THAT'S RINGING.
WHAT I'M HERE FOR,
WHAT I'M LONGING FOR
WHAT I WANT MORE,
NOW THAT YOU ARE GONE
MY PURPOSE SEEMS TO BE
TO SING THIS MELODY.

WISHING ON THE MOON,
REACHING FOR THE STARS,
WAITING FOR A MIRACLE
TO TAKE US BOTH TO MARS.
REACHING FOR THE STARS,
WISHING ON THE MOON,
WAITING FOR A MIRACLE
TO HELP ME
SING THIS TUNE.
