Brazil, where hearts were entertained in June
We stood beneath an amber moon
And softly whispered, "One day soon"
We kissed and clung together

Then - tomorrow was another day
The morning found me miles away
With still a million things to say
And now, as twilight moves the sky above
Recalling thrills of our love
There's one thing that I'm certain of
Return, I will, to old Brazil

Brazil, where hearts were entertained in June
We stood beneath an amber moon
And softly whispered, "One day soon"
We kissed and clung together

Then - tomorrow was another day
The morning found me miles away
With still a million things to say
And now as twilight moves the sky above
Recalling thrills of our love
There's one thing that I'm certain of
Return, I will, to old Brazil

    General CommentI think this sweet old love song goes something more like this:

    Brazil, where (our) hearts were entertained in June,
    we stood beneath an amber moon and softly whispered:
    "One day soon we'll kiss"
    And clung together--
    Then, tomorrow was another day.
    The morning found me miles away with still a milion things to say.

    And now as twilight moves the sky above, (with) the calming thrills of our love, there's one thing that I'm certain of: Return I will to old Brazil...

    General CommentI can't believe that arcade fire did of cover of Brazil! This song makes me want to cry my eyes out, because it reminds me of the movie of the same name.

    General CommentCover or not, I can tell for sure they´ve been to Brazil and stood under the moonlight; during their stay here in Porto Alegre, opening for The Strokes, they performed a great show and went to a party at the Ocidente Bar. This is traditional "alternative" bar, mostly frequented by artists, writters, film makers, poets, musicians, etc., and stays at the heart of Bom Fim, a bohemiam jewish neighbourhood.

    Will danced as a maniac, Sarah asked the DJ - which is related to me - to play The Cure and at some point of the night, invited by the bar´s owner (a cinema art director), they went to the roof of the building and sat under the moonlight, turned to the Farroupilha Park. I honestly can´t say whether some of the guys was with a brazilian girl or not, but I swear all I tell here is true.

    General Commentthis is such a good song. it's a remake of an old standard from like, the 40s or something like that, but it's an old song. but it's definately about lost love in a foreign land and the quest to find it agan.

    General CommentI've never heard this song by them!

    (By I can remember very well Frank Sinatra singing "Return I will/ To old... Brazil.")

    I Hope, they comeback to Brazil, 'cause I lost their first show =\

    General CommentI love this cover. It's kind of eerie with the whole lo-fi thing going and vocals sound so stretched to the end of natural emotion.
