This music groups is actually South African based but the lead singer is Portuguese (still doesn’t explain the Spanish title of the group or the Spanish title of this song that’s in portuguese…hmmm). But I learned about them over the summer and I really love them a lot, which is surprising since I don’t really enjoy house music. Anyway, I know a pretty good deal of portuguese, but there are still words here and there that I can’t catch, and there are no lyrics online anywhere. So anybody fluent in portuguese who can catch all the words SEND ME THE LYRICS!! Otherwise enjoy.

For you non-speakers the main chorus is saying: this life is so beautiful it makes me cry.
