Lyrics of O Jardim

Eu nunca te quis
Menos do que tudo
Sempre, meu amor

Se no céu também és feliz
Leva-me eu cuido
Sempre, ao teu redor

São as flores o meu lugar
Agora que não estás
Rego eu o teu jardim

São as flores o meu lugar
Agora que não estás
Rego eu o teu jardim

Eu já prometi
Que um dia mudo
Ou tento, ser maior

Se do céu também és feliz
Leva-me eu juro
Sempre, pelo teu valor

São as flores o meu lugar
Agora que não estás
Rego eu o teu jardim

São as flores o meu lugar
Agora que não estás
Rego eu o teu jardim

Agora que não estás
Rego eu o teu jardim
Agora que não estás
Rego eu o teu jardim
Agora que não estás
Rego eu o teu jardim
Agora que não estás
Agora que não estás
Rego eu o teu jardim
I never wanted you
Less than entirely
Always, my love

If in heaven you’re happy too
Take me, I’ll take care
Always, around you

All the flowers, they’re my place
Now that you’re gone
I’ll take care of your garden

All the flowers, they’re my place
Now that you’re gone
I’ll take care of your garden

I’ve already promised
That one day I’ll change
Or try, to be better

If from heaven you’re happy too
Take me, I swear
Always, for your worth

All the flowers, they’re my place
Now that you’re gone
I’ll take care of your garden


All the flowers, they’re my place
Now that you’re gone
I’ll take care of your garden

Now that you’re gone
I’ll take care of your garden
Now that you’re gone
I’ll take care of your garden
Now that you’re gone
I’ll take care of your garden
Now that you’re gone
I’ll take care of your garden
