A paixão nua e cega dos estios, Atravessou a minha vida como rios

I watch the burning sun climb in a morning sky
And from all sides I hear excited voices cry:
"Today Don Juan will fight the proudest bull of all
And in the blood-red sand which one will fall"
I am the matador who's won a thousand fights
And just as many girls to while away my nights
But there is one whose love thrills me like heady wine
I feel no fear of death while she is mine
Don Juan, braver than brave
Show us today what you are
Don Juan, man among men
Your name will shine like a star
Don Juan, man among men
Your name will shine like a star
The time draws very near
To meet my greatest test
But, with her eyes on me
I'll fight my best
Lord, my whole life has been like a ranging torrent
Sweeping many things in it's course that other men only dream of
I valued it so cheaply until now
But now her love leads me to find peace of mind
Let me live, let me give my love to her
Don Juan, braver than brave
Show us today what you are
Don Juan, man among men
Your name will shine like a star
The end must be in sight, this bull will die for me
And I think of the one who'll share my victory
As my search the crowd, my body turns to stone
I see my lover there, but not alone
If I can t live for her, then there s no life for me
So, in this blood-red ring, die Don Juan!
