Island Of Wonder
Featuring Caetano Veloso


The man wrinkles his face
But it's already worn
The coffee is sour
And the shirt is torn
But the smile is bigger than the Atlantic sea
It happens to bring out the Atlantis in me

Island of wonder
Where do you come from?
Is it the way the sun hits my face
Or is it your memory which I cannot trace? (I cannot trace)

Eu vejo mais ao longe
Pessoas sem fome
Com pés sangrando
Na vereda florida
And the church bell dongs
A remarkable song
And I swallow the salt
As I hum along
The woman she laughs as I pass her by
In a patchwork (dream) I left behind

Island of wonder
Where do you come from?
Is it the way the sun hits my face
Or is it your memory which I cannot trace? (I cannot trace)

Look at me I have so much pride
I took my shoes off I ran I did not hide
Look at me I have so much pride
I will give my dowry for the prize

Island of wonder
Where are you going?
Nobody knows it
But it is snowing
In the hearts and minds of every kind of universe (universe, universe)

Island of wonder
Where are you going?
Nobody knows it
But it is snowing
In the hearts and minds of every kind of universe (universe, universe)

“Island Of Wonder”:

At one point I’d just come off the road and wasn’t feeling very inspired. I was talking to my mom on the phone. She said, “What do you mean you’re not inspired?” I said, “I guess I just don’t know what to write about anymore.” That summer my family and I had taken one of our trips to The Azores [the island chain off the coast of Portugal where Furtado’s parents were born]. She said, “Why don’t you write a song called ‘Island Of Wonder?’” Right then it hit me – it was the most absurd idea, but I knew that song would be on my album. Our DJ, Lil‘ Jaz, had started producing stuff, and I collaborated with him on this. He worked up this sample from Caetano Veloso, from the song “Tonada De Luna Llena,” from his album Fina Estampa. He is my musical idol. And then Caetano ended up singing a new vocal for the song! It’s pretty cool that his sample is on it and he’s singing as well. I still can’t believe it.
