"Rosa" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Tanto, tanto, tanto claro
E tanto gris
Que é raro, raro, raro, raro
Que seja tanto assim

Sonâmbulo esquilo
Te faço gargalhar, ah

Será que assim eu vou sem ver o que não vi.
Será que penso que me vou ainda fico aqui.

Rubro Rubro Ouro Rimo,
Desnuda o mineral
E qualquer nome lhe foi dado
Assim tá sem pensar

Pensam que não sabem nada
Que tu não pode amar
Dizem que é ver pra crer
E eu vou te explicar, ah

Te tiram da tua cama e
Tua mãe a te buscar
Sem mi lábios
Sem parar
Não pode te encontrar

A vera rosa
Estranha rosa

Finjo Limpo, Limpo Lindo
Sangue é algodão
Montanha, viva, sacra, ferida, doce e celestial

Começa assim com tal tristeza
Termina tudo igual
Tudo igual
Termina tudo igual
Igual

Din-gom-durum
Din-gom-durum (Estranha rosa)
Din-gom-durum

Estranha Rosa

    General Comment"so much so much so much is clear
    there is so much gray
    that its rare, rare, rare
    that there would be so much like this

    tired(?) squirrel
    i make you laugh
    ah

    could it be that im like this, i go without seeing what i dont see
    could it be that i think im going, but im still here
    ablush, ablush gold i rhyme
    lays the mineral bare
    and any name was given to it
    thus it is without thinking

    they think it knows nothing
    that you cannot love
    they say you have to see it to believe it
    that it is useless to explain
    aaah

    they grab you from your calm and
    your mother searches for you
    without my lips
    non stop
    (she) cannot find you

    the true rose
    strange rose
    clean indian, clean and beautiful
    blood is cotton
    mountain, alive, holy, hurt, sweet and celestial
    so it begins with such sorrow
    it all ends the same
    all the same
    it all ends the same
    the same

    din gom durum
    din gom durum
    strange rose
    din gom durum

    strange rose..."

    it's in portuguese, my friend translated for me.

    Song Meaningin "te tiram da tua calma e tua mãe a te buscar" i actually hear "cama" (bed) instead of "calma" (calm).
    i'd translate "sonâmbulo" to "sleepwalker".
