Sung from the point of view of a “motoboy”, who zips through the city making deliveries, “Alento” is a celebration of São Paulo’s energy and industriousness. The basic rhythm of the song is a capoeira rhythm called maculelê


I get up early with my foot on the brake
And the whole world begins to turn
In the bathroom, I look in the mirror
I take in the courage to get on the move

Wallet and keys in my pocket
my cell phone is charging
Listen up, better let me be
Nobody’s going to hold me back
Yeah, I’m in control of my life
So happiness will come
So my dreams can fly

Don’t mess with me
If I’m laughing, I’m laughing for you
Look up at the sky, honey

I wasn’t born to fake it
I’m tuned in to the love
We have for life

Acordo cedo com o pé no freio
E o mundo inteiro começa a girar
No banheiro, olho no espelho
Crio coragem e ponho pra andar

A carteira, a chave no bolso
Tá carregando o meu celular
Acredita, ninguém apita
Quem vai querer hoje me segurar
É, eu tô na vida e é pra virar
Que a felicidade vem
Eu tô sonhando mais além

Não nem vem aqui me atazanar
Se eu tô rindo é pra você
Olha pro céu meu bem

É eu não fui feita pra fingir
Eu tô ligada é no amor
Que se tem pra viver
