Your face

Notes

Another delicate lyric by Armando Freitas Filho that was a real pleasure to translate. As you'll see, we retained the word-play in the original of 'ah / mor' (amor, love plus ah mor, bigger) as 'ah / more'.

Note on the literal translation:

*wordplay - ah/mor, amor = love or ah mor = ah, more (bigger. Archaic)

Francisco Vilhena, Literal Translator
