Amor Ingrato

A song about two long time lovers whose relationship doesn't survive the erosion of time and the hardships life brings.

Lyrics

Debaixo dos meus pés fugiu-me o chão

É grande o sopro do coração

Jóias não pagam lealdade

Nem fazem esquecer a crueldade

Under my feet the floor escaped

It is big the heart murmur

Jewels don't pay for loyalty

Nor do they make forget cruelty

O nosso amor era um rochedo

Que o mar erodiu sem medo

Se eu soubesse de tal ironia

No teu encanto eu nunca cairía

Our love was a boulder

the ocean eroded fearlessly

If I had known of such irony

In your enchantment, I wouldn't have fallen

Se os céus alguma vez falaram,
Para nós sempre calaram

If the Heavens ever spoke

For us, they were always silent.

Ó como numa pintura Barroca

Homens pintam-na como louca

Ó como numa pintura Barroca

Somo os anjos com sangue na boca

Oh like in a Baroque painting

Men paint her insane

Oh like in a Baroque painting

We are angels with blood in our mouths

De joelhos em vidro partido
Não me encontras pois não estou perdido
Viraste a minha pele do avesso
Tenho o meu coração em gesso

Kneeling on broken glass

You won't find me for I'm not lost

You turn my skin upside down

My heart is covered in plaster

O nosso amor ficou azedo

De viver com calos nos dedos

Se a razão te trouxer alguma paz

Seja que esta vida não me satisfaz

Our love turned bitter

from living with calluses in our fingers

If reason brings you some peace

be it that this life doesn't satisfy me

Se os céus alguma vez falaram,
Para nós sempre calaram

If the Heavens ever spoke

For us, they were always silent.

Ó como numa pintura Barroca

Homens pintam-na como louca

Ó como numa pintura Barroca

Somo os anjos com sangue na boca

Oh like in a Baroque painting

Men paint her insane

Oh like in a Baroque painting

We are angels with blood in our mouths

Se não arde na pele é milagre

É amor com tempero a vinagre

Vai-te ó Deus omnipresente

Só admiro quem já não é crente

If it doesn’t burn in the skin it’s a miracle
It’s love seasoned with vinegar
Go, oh omnipresent God
I only admire the unbelieving

Ó como numa pintura Barroca

Homens pintam-na como louca

Ó como numa pintura Barroca

Somo os anjos com sangue na boca

Oh like in a Baroque painting

Men paint her insane

Oh like in a Baroque painting

We are angels with blood in our mouths

Recording the music

I recorded my first single with the help of Rohini Maiti and her chord progression and guitar skills. We recorded at the RCAD Motion Design audio suit, ran by Kelly Warner, who is a genius in music production and sound design himself. Without them, this project wouldn’t have happened.

Music Video Coming Soon!

As part of my senior thesis at Ringling College of Art and Design, I directed, produced, edited, animated, and
composited the music video for the song "Amor Ingrato."
The music video will be published very soon!
