Song: Ainda Bem, by Marisa Monte Posted by on Jan 17, 2012 in Music

Marisa Montes is such a great singer. Her debut album, MM, was released in 1989 but she reached the Brazilian music highlight in 1994 with the album Verde, Anil, Amarelo, Cor-de-Rosa e Carvão. Marisa has a very sweet voice and her songs are very good for listening practice and why not, sing along!?

Check out Marisa Monte’s latest hit, Ainda Bem, with the video featuring mixed martial artist Anderson Silva. Ainda bem is an idiom that means “it’s a good thing”, “luckily” or “I’m glad”.

Ainda Bem (I’m glad)

Ainda bem (I’m glad)
Que agora encontrei você (That now I’ve found you)
Eu realmente não sei (I really don’t know)
O que eu fiz pra merecer (What I’ve done to deserve)
Você (You)

Porque ninguém (Because nobody)
Dava nada por mim (Gave me the time of day)
Quem dava, eu não tava a fim (Who did, I wasn’t into)
Até desacreditei (I even lost faith)
De mim (In myself)

O meu coração (My heart)
Já estava acostumado (Was already used)
Com a solidão (To the loneliness)

Quem diria que a meu lado (Who would’ve known that by my side)
Você iria ficar (You would stay)
Você veio pra ficar (You’re here to stay)
Você que me faz feliz (You’re the one that makes me happy)
Você que me faz cantar (You’re the one that makes me sing)
Assim (Like this)

O meu coração (My heart)
Já estava aposentado (Was already retired)
Sem nenhuma ilusão (With no illusion)

Tinha sido maltratado (It had been mistreated)
Tudo se transformou (Everything’s changed)
Agora você chegou (Now you’re here)

Você que me faz feliz (You’re the one that makes me happy)
Você que me faz cantar (You’re the one that makes me sing)
Assim (Like this)
