Lyrics

SER CRIANÇA (Être un enfant)

Être un enfant (To be a child)
c'est la somme de toutes les couleurs (is to put all the colors together)
c'est l'éclosion de roses (it's the blooming of roses)
au milieu de champs de fleurs (in the middle of a field of flowers)
comme il est beau le rêve (how beautiful it is to dream)
d'être encore un enfant... (about being a child once again)

Dans un monde tout imaginaire
un cirque ordinaire
en un cercle sans fin
Et les rondes et les contes de fées
y tournent aussi
et peut-être le prince

Réveille-toi, Belle au Bois endormie
car l'humanité est en lutte toujours
sans raison et sans compréhension
détruisant la beauté qui fleurit

Mais pour vrai, ce serait tellement beau
que tous ceux qui reviennent
au monde imaginaire
et à l'enfant de leurs rêves
puissent enfin vivre en paix sur Terre

Ser criança
é a soma de todas as cores
é o brotar dessas rosas nos campos em flores
Como é lindo sonhar ser criança também
No mundo imaginativo
que é o propio circo em circulo tambem
as cirandas e os contos de fadas
fazem parte dela e o principe tal vez

Acorde a Bela Adormecida
por que a humanidade 'ta sempre a lutar
sem razao e sem compreensao
destruiendo essas flores que ha

Na verdade seria bem justo
se todos pudessem a esse mundo voltar
Sem criança outra vez
e a paz no mundo reinhar...
