lyrics

Can't remember just how I managed to dance last night
Can't remember just how I managed to kiss you good night
Only thing that I do remember is not so much fun
So I will just drink it off of my mind

I'm sitting in a bar by the ocean just watching the sand
"Outra por favor" I emptied the glass in my hand
Only thing that I don't regret is the choice of the song
That I played on the jukebox in the back

Only thing that I wanted so much, only thing that I wanted so much
Is gone and there's no substitute
For the thing that I wanted so much, so many years have passed
My life has been of such solitude, la la la la la la la

Morna, morna, let me hear the band play like in Cabo Verde
Morna, morna, let my soul dance to the Morna

Você, você, você... Eu fui com saudade de você

Can't remember just how I managed to dance last night
Can't remember just how I managed to kiss you good night
Only thing that I do remember is not so much fun
So I will just drink it off of my mind

Only thing that I wanted so much, only thing that I wanted so much
Was just a fool's fantasy
Only thing that I wanted so much was just a way to escape
From all the things made of lunacy, la la la la la la la

Morna, morna, let me hear the band play like in Cabo Verde
Morna, morna, let my soul dance to the Morna

(Solo)

Only thing that I wanted so much, only thing that I wanted so much
Is gone and there's no substitute
For the thing that I wanted so much, so many years have passed
My life has been of such solitude, now play Morna!
