saudade

by Jeri Ann Ramilo Amateur

SONG LYRICS

pretty sure at some point i was in love with you
bright eyes and a friendly smile
with words that pull me in
you make me happy
and i miss how we were back then

saudade saudade
the way i feel about you
im longing for your vibe
but no one is like you
maybe i miss you
a little too much

your world’s across the ocean
but time and space are constructs
i really should let this go but
you’re the sweetest soul that i know
im neck deep in nostalgia
rereading our old texts

saudade saudade
the way i feel about you
im longing for your vibe
but no one is like you
maybe i miss you
a little too much

oooooh ooooooh
its time to move on
for the sake of my mind
im over the emotions
done romanticizing the past
ooooooh oooooh

saudade saudade
the way i feel about you
im longing for your vibe
but no one is like you
maybe i miss you
a little too much

saudade saudade
im over the emotions
our paths have crossed
we arent the story
but love will be found
wherever i am

DESCRIPTION
"saudade" is a portugese word for a deep emotional state of melancholic longing for a person or thing that is absent. I wrote this on a 5 am morning while in quarantine and whilst studying for a large exam for admission into medical school. I was nostalgic for what felt normal and for a time I shared with someone whom I missed a lot at the time.
