Winter's Copacabana

I go each summer
Trying to find a dream
But it is gone
It's not a dream, it is the past
Longing for pictures dressed in green
I know they are false
The future is not made of pictures
The wind will blow
The future will show it if was alright
It's all right with me
You see it grow
And I will put up all my strength
And set me free
Whatever sets me free
Like water
Then I see you coming
Like winter's Copacabana
See you coming
Like winter's Copacabana
Sometimes I meet a friend
Someone who shows me
That reasons are born again
Fearing still the winter dark and cold
While I am working
Forgetting again
About those reasons
The wind will blow
The future will show it if was alright
It's all right with me
You see it grow,
And I will put up all my strength
And set me free
Whatever sets me free
Like water
It looks like I have escaped
And I'm feeling good
But it is an illusion
I'll have to tell it to his face
I would say I can't be what he wants
There's another story
That's waiting
To be completed
The wind will blow
The future will show
If it was alright
It's all right with me
You see it grow
And I will bring up all my strength
And set me free
Whatever sets me free
Like water
Then I see you coming
Like winter’s Copacabana
I see you coming
Like the tide you're moving
And a breeze from the seaside
Follows where you're walking
And I feel like morning
To the strangest life
And I see you coming
My Copacabana
