Lyrics

Salvador
Music and Lyrics: Jeana Paul

Winds of Salvador
Carry me away
Take away my sadness
With songs of past axê
Fill me with saudade
For another day
Bring back my memories
Of shimbalaié axê
The sun sets on the water
Across the All Saints’ Bay
Yemanja’s daughters
Lift up the ocean spray
Take me back to Barra
Just for one more day
Bring back my memories
Of shimbalaié axê

And when the sun goes down
I see your brown eyes
My world falls like
Water through my hands

So, walk with me
Talk with me
Write our names
in the sand
Walk with me
Talk with me
Hold me gently in the night
Until the sunrise
Eri Yéyé ó

The sun sets on the water
Off the eastern shore
Upside down and backwards
Where is this headed for?
If we’ve no tomorrow
Let’s celebrate today
Making our own memories
Of shimbalaié axê.

And when the sun goes down
I see your brown eyes
My world falls like
Water through my hands
So, walk with me
Talk with me
Write our names in the sand
Walk with me
Talk with me
Hold me gently in the night
Until the sunrise
Eri Yéyé ó

I need the sunshine
Axê is the sunshine
Axê is the sunshine
