The bay

The bay

< >

“The Bay” is a solar break in the album “Nocturne”. It is a waiting song, contemplative. It begins with the simplicity of the piano in a minor key and goes on incorporating new instruments, strings, bass, drums and more weight to its arrangement, which expands the sound possibilities, creating a measured tension of emotions, which coexists with skillful interpretation and beautiful lyrics. It is a timeless, universal and Brazilian message, regional and foreign, it is “bay” and Bahia. A love song with discrete electronic touches, and yet significant, as a delicate and serene construction of its theme.

 

The Bay
(Marcos Braccini)

I have the sun in my arms
no need to set the alarms for tomorrow
no sorrow in my sight
or in my thoughts
if I stand here carefully

From here I can see the bay
all saints come with me to pray
from here I can see the bay
all saints invite me to stay

Tomorrow no rain I guess
no goodbyes sadness eyes full of tears
I’ll have the sun standing still
in my arms it burns until
I call fall asleep again

From here I can see the bay
all saints invite me to stay
from here I can see the bay
all saints come with me to pray
