Estranha forma de vida – Amália Rodrigues Outubro 6, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 9:13 am

Foi por vontade de Deus
que eu vivo nesta ansiedade.
Que todos os ais são meus,
Que é toda a minha saudade.
Foi por vontade de Deus.

Que estranha forma de vida
tem este meu coração:
vive de forma perdida;
Quem lhe daria o condão?
Que estranha forma de vida.

Coração independente,
coração que não comando:
vive perdido entre a gente,
teimosamente sangrando,
coração independente.

Eu não te acompanho mais:
para, deixa de bater.
Se não sabes onde vais,
porque teimas em correr,
eu não te acompanho mais.

Amália Rodrigues

 

Lágrima – Amália Rodrigues

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 9:12 am

Cheia de penas me deito
E com mais penas me levanto
Já me ficou no meu peito
O jeito de te querer tanto

Tenho por meu desespero
Dentro de mim o castigo
Eu digo que não te quero
E de noite sonho contigo

Se considero que um dia hei-de morrer
No desespero que tenho de te não ver
Estendo o meu xaile no chão
E deixo-me adormecer

Se eu soubesse que morrendo
Tu me havias de chorar
Por uma lágrima tua
Que alegria me deixaria matar

Seis anos de infinita Saudade…

Amália deixou-nos há seis anos. Grande figura do fado mas não só. Ainda hoje se associa Portugal a Eusébio e Amália. Poucas figuras, se algumas, lhe são comparáveis em termos de levar o nome do País a todo o Mundo e de prestigiá-lo. Não vou dizer mais nada sobre a sua vida e carreira artística. Muitos o fizeram e fazem com maior capacidade e conhecimento.

Cumpri o meu dever mínimo ao registar aqui, com destaque, este evento.
E para quem neste dia especial queira ouvir a sua voz eterna só tem de seguir o link:
http://amalia.no.sapo.pt/Fados.htm onde pode ouvir gratuitamente os fados de Amália tais como : O Fado veio a Paris, Lágrima, Ai minha doce loucura e outros
