“Mira e Veja” describes a person riding his bike around and observing the colorful scenes of daily life in the city. A portrait and tribute to São Paulo, which is known for being gray and urban, but if you change the way you look at it, you’ll see that it's full of energy, life and beauty.


I take my road
I wander through chaos

I ride my bike idly
Around my big city
I turn every corner
God, this place is all gray

I stop by a wall
I see a window

There, I see a vase, I see the rose,
I see a shadow flash, a woman’s body
Magnetic, quick chill and
I move on to someplace else

Pedaling slowly
Same absence of color
The window, the rose and the woman return
To reveal color in the black and white portrait of the city
Around me

I go aimlessly
I wander through chaos

Riding my bike
In the big city, whistling
An old song I once
heard in this very place

I stop by another wall
I peep through the door

I take a look and see a pink girl
In a blue dress, spin
Around over a gray, old and dirty patio
To the sound of that old song

Pedaling in the past
I lay colors in the present
I remember the pink and blue girl
I remember her and reinvent the way I look at
My city, my place

I remember the pink and blue girl


Sigo o meu caminho
Vago pelo caos

Pedalando minha bicicleta
Na cidade grande a vadiar
Revirando cada canto esquina
Deus, é todo cinza meu lugar

Paro rente a um muro
Vejo uma janela

Nela vejo um vaso, vejo a rosa,
Vejo um vulto, um corpo de mulher
Magnético arrepio vivo e
Logo viro rumo outro lugar

Pedalando devagar
Mesma ausência de cor
Voltam janela, rosa e mulher
Revelam cor no retrato PB da cidade
Ao meu redor

Vago meu caminho
Sigo pelo caos

Pedalando minha bicicleta
Na cidade grande a assoviar
Uma velha melodia um dia
Ouvida bem aqui neste lugar

Paro noutro muro
Olho pela porta

Miro e vejo uma menina rosa,
Vestidinho azul, rodopiar
Sobre um velho pátio sujo e cinza
Ao som daquela velha melodia

Pedalando no passado
Deito cores ao presente
Lembro a menina rosa e azul
Lembro e repenso a maneira de olhar
A cidade, o meu lugar

Lembro a menina rosa e azul
