Changing waters

Portuguese Version

The water washes away the sand on my feet
Innocence has gone with the river
I'm not the same
I'm stained

The water touches my lazy fingertips
Kindness has gone with the river
I'm not the same
I'm unreachable

The water cleans my dusty eyes
Knowledge has gone with the river
I'm not the same
I'm blind

The water hydrates my thirsty mouth
Love has gone with the river
I'm not the same
I'm dry
