About

The lyrics for this song were written decades ago by the father of my friend Cláudio Lagarto. Since then, at least one other band - Os Lobos da Noite - have composed a song for these lyrics.

 

Back in 2008, when I was getting started composing music, I felt like I should do my own version. Here's a MIDI file of a composition sketch from that time:

When composing this I was kinda trying to cover Lobos da Noite's version, while giving my own twist to it.

 

I eventually decided to create a completely new version, one I could truly call mine.

 

I wanted to create:

 

  1. a relatively short, straightforward, medium/fast paced music with progressive metal influences;
  2. a very fast, a million-thoughts-racing-through-your-head type of  guitar solo;
  3. challenging vocals charged with raging emotion.

 

Playing a guitar solo at the limit of my speed and singing at the upper limit of my vocal range was a conscious choice, a direct result of my interpretation of the lyrics.

 

This new version was composed in 2010;

Recorded in 2012-2016;

Released in 2017;

Lyrics

Nasci numa noite triste,

Em que um homem cantava

Uma poesia triste,

Como a que ouves, irmão

 

Não sei por onde caminho,

Sinto-me comandado,

Como uma máquina,

Que controla um filme,

 

Olho em meu redor,

Sem encontrar solução,

Olho-te nos olhos,

E vejo as dúvidas de um amor,

Sem razão

 

Vou partir,

(Nesta noite triste, vais partir)

Sem deixar um adeus,

Vou partir,

Só e sem fé em Deus.

 

Olho em meu redor,

Sem encontrar solução,

Olho-te nos olhos,

E vejo as dúvidas de um amor,

Sem razão
