I Don't Know What It Means But I like It

I think it was Tengrain who introduced me to Jane. In certain light I see a bit of Jane in Ms. M.

I was listening to the radio today and heard Jane Monheit singing "Like A Star." I had to stop what I was doing to listen. It was gorgeous and "Like A Star" was what I was looking for. I found this instead. I don't know what the Spanish means, but I like it.

It's Portuguese, actually. Here's a translation:
To begin again
And to depend on myself
It will be worthwhile
to have awakened,
to have rebelled,
to have wrestled,
to have hurt myself,
to have survived,
to have turned the tables,
to have known myself,
to have capsized,
to have rescued myself,

To begin again
And to depend on myself
It will be worthwhile
to have awakened
without your claws, always so secure,
without your ghost,
without your frame,
without your support,
without your domination,
without your spurs,
without your fascination

To begin again
And to depend on myself
It will be worthwhile
to have already
forgotten you

To begin again

Guy, thank you for the translation. It embarrass me to be so ignorant that I didn't know this song was sung in Portuguese. The lyrics are gorgeous. Your kindness is touching. And though you could have made me feel like an idiot for not being able to tell the difference between Portuguese and Spanish, you didn't. I tried to follow you home to thank you, but the trail led nowhere. I hope you come back soon.

I wish I could take credit for this, but this is the first I have heard of her, too.

I'm going broke buying music you introduce me too.

Regards,

Tengrain
