A noite da lua cheia
Na estrada que vai dar no mar.
Eu e você, meu amor,
E as sombras de nós dois.
Só existe o silêncio neste momento,
Nem uma palavra precisa de contar.
Sorriso de você e sorriso meu,
Podem contar tudo que [existe] agora.
Nos braços da paz desta noite,
Surgiu uma linda canção
Que canta da beleza,
Que canta da esperança,
Que canta da eternidade do amor,
Do amor mais lindo de nós.
English translation
A full-moon night
On the road that leads to the sea
You and I, my love,
And the shadows of ours.
There's only silence on this moment--
Not even a word is needed.
Your smile and mine--
Can tell everything that is [happening] now.
On this night's arms of peace
A beautiful song appeared
That sings of beauty,
That sings of hope,
That sings of love's eternity
Of our beautiful love.
