FECHEI A PORTA

Eu não quero mais amar • Pra não sofrer ingratidão • Depois do que eu passei • Fechei a porta do meu coração

Eu dei pra ela todo o carinho • E no entanto acabei sozinho

  1. Hi, Andreas!!!
    Thanks a lot for “Fechei A Porta”! It was always my favorite musical piece (From Aurino Ferreira LP), but now a can hear all the variations, especially Jamelao’s is so great!
    What a music; it’s literally talking to the listener.
    Curiously, I never trying to translate, and always suppose that it’s something optimistic… But in reality it’s about brocken heart and closed door. Wonderful!!!
    All the best
