No More Blues (Chega de saudade)

1957 Antônio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics written by Vinícius de Moraes

No more blues
I’m going back home
No, no more blues
I promise no more to roam
Home is where the heart is
The funny part is, my heart’s been
Right here all alone
No more tears, and no more sighs
No, no more fears-
I’ll say no more goodbye
If travel beckons me, I swear I’m gonna refuse
I’m gonna settle down, and there’ll be no more blues
