Lightly Latin - 1966

Meditation ( Meditaçao )

In my loneliness . . .
when you're gone and I'm all by myself,
an' I need your caress, 
I just think of you, and the thought of you holding me near
makes my loneliness soon disappear . . . 
Though you're far away, 
I have only to close my eyes and you are back to stay, 
I just close my eyes and the sadness missing you brings, 
soon is gong and this heart of mine sings
yes, I love you so, and that for me is all I need to know . . .
I will wait for you, 
'till the sun falls out of the sky, for what else can I do?
I will wait for you, 
meditating how sweet life will be when you come back to me . . .
< instrumental break >
I will wait for you, meditating how sweet life will be when you come back to me . . .
Became these quiet nights of loving you!
( I will wait for you . . . )  Come back to me . . .
Music by Antonio Carlos Jobim with original lyrics by Newton Mendonça, 1963
