letra de i love portugal – sun kil moon

in my hotel where the band is staying
i’m off desert but what i’d give to not get on that plane
woke to the sound of birds calling and i wanna water the flowers in the garden
and the maid scooting her tray around the echoey hall
i just want to stay in portugal today, that’s all
’cause when i’m here there’s a sense of calm
people living day to day and enjoying the moment
last night we found a cozy place and we listened to fado music and we ate steak
and bacalhau and caldo verde
then we went and got gelato and we drank iced lattes

and the fans have always shown me love (shown me love)
and so have my friends vasco, miguel, and nadia, and monica (nadia and monica)
i can’t complain, i get to visit every year
last night my driver said my music brought him to tears

[chorus]
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh
i love portugal
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh
i love portugal
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh
i love portugal
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh
i love portugal

was listening to mahavishnu orchestra’s “liala’s dance”
as i drifted off into rare afternoon nap
yesterday, one shot in minnesota, one in baton rouge, and then retaliation in dallas
someone shot and k!lled five cops
and the cops came back and k!lled that sniper with a robot
but all was peaceful here at the seculo hotel in the bonfim neighborhood of oporto
now i’m on my way to zürich at gate 35
tap operator by swiss airlines
i miss my quiet day in oporto, sleeping and listening to the many birds sing
and the shoe store that i wanted to shop in
was closed and, man, it p-ssed me off
as we drove by twice on the way to soundcheck and on the way to the hotel that night

i’m gonna return some day, i know it (some day)
i’m gonna buy me a home looking over the river in oporto (river in oporto)
gonna get me a plate of melon and prosciutto and grilled sardines, a cup of coffee, and a bowl of gazpacho (bowl of gazpacho)
the usa can’t pull the guns from the trolls of the country i live in
can’t get a grip on gun control
if we’re gonna live with a president who’s a huge f-cking -sshole
then believe me, baby, i’m gonna buy me a home in portugal

[chorus]
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh / where the people don’t walk
i love portugal / they just stroll
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh / where the people go to bars, relax
i love portugal / and listen to fado
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh / where i feel at peace from my
i love portugal / head to my toe
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh / particularly i love the city of oporto
i love portugal

at the [?], room 301, in zurich
the bern show is cancelled tomorrow night due to violence and a bunch of crazy sh-t
it’s found its way into the venue
i’m not going to sing about it
i’m just gonna read the statement from the promoter to you

“dear mark, dear all at sun kil moon
i have really, really, really bad news. we’re deeply afraid but see ourselves in circ-mstances that unfortunately urge us to have to cancel. the sun kil moon show at dachstock reitschule, bern, the open sp-ce in front of our house reitschule, bern is causing increasing troubles with violence and s-xes. an organized drug dealer and the [?] we decided to shut the place down and its ongoing activities. for a while, at least ten days, or maybe longer and find a way of how to deal with our society’s problems erupted in front of our house, creating a rather explosive atmosphere at times in front of our house. we’re very sorry that due to this reaction the show with sun kil moon will have to be cancelled. as we’re in general enforcing this temporary shutdown, apologies for any inconveniences to you, i know your band just got into town. of course we’re gonna pay full agreed guaranteed fee as well as covering your hotel for 12/7/16. also tickets will be reimbursed, it can be used to see your show tonight in zürich. we strongly hope you reschedule your concert in bern next time your band is touring in europe. reitschule remains closed until further notice. again, my deepest apologies, but it’s totally out of my control. let me know if you need any more info
sincerely, your promoter at breathing hope.”

[chorus]
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh / and the sparkling douro river estuary
i love portugal
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh / and when i die i want some of my ashes spread there
i love portugal / and skip the hail mary
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh / i’m gonna back next year and i’m gonna find that same shoe store
i love portugal
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh / it’s gotta be somewhere between the venue and the fnac bookstore
i love portugal
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh / and it doesn’t have a godd-mned thing to do with football
i love portugal

[outro]
i love portugal, i love portugal, oh, oh
i love portugal
i love portugal
