Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars

Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves!

- Humbert Wolfe
(05 Jan 1885 - 05 Jan 1940)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This is a lovely song, though I don't know how quiet the night or how bright the stars will be where you are!

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corcovado_%28song%29:

"Corcovado" (known in English as "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars") is a bossa nova song written by Antonio Carlos Jobim in 1960. An English lyric was later written by Gene Lees. The Portuguese title refers to the Corcovado mountain in Rio de Janeiro. Andy Williams recorded the song with English lyrics, reaching #92 in the Billboard Hot 100 and #18 in the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart in 1965.[1]

Corcovado / Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars

Written by
Antonio Carlos Jobim
(25 Jan 1927 – 08 Dec 1994)

English lyrics written by Gene Lees, 1962
(b. 08 Feb 1928)

Um cantinho, um violão
Esse amor, uma canção
Pra fazer feliz a quem se ama

Muita calma pra pensar
E ter tempo pra sonhar
Da janela vê-se o Corcovado
O Redentor, que lindo!

Quero a vida sempre assim
Com você perto de mim
Até o apagar da velha chama

E eu que era triste
Descrente desse mundo
Ao encontrar você eu conheci
O que é felicidade, meu amor.
Quiet nights of quiet stars, quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us.
Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams, quiet walks by quiet streams.
Climbing hills where lovers go to watch the world below together.

We will live eternally in this mood of reverie
Away from all the earthly cares around us
My world was dull, each minute, until I found you in it
And all at once, the happiness I knew
Became these quiet nights of loving you.

We will live eternally in this mood of reverie
Away from all the earthly cares around us
My world was dull, each minute, until I found you in it
And all at once, the happiness I knew
Became these quiet nights of loving you.
