Senhora do mar
Ante vós, me tendes caída
Quem vem tirar meia da vida e da paz
Desta mesa, desta casa, perdidas?
Amor, qu’é de ti?

Senhora do mar
Ante vós, minha alma está vazia
Quem vem chamar a si o que é meu?
Ó mar alto, traz pr’a mim
Amor meu sem fim

Ai, negras águas, ondas de mágoas
Gelaram-m’o fogo no olhar (Senhora do mar)
Ele não torna a navegar (Ele não torna a navegar)
E ninguém vos vê chorar
Senhora do mar

Quem vem tirar meia da vida e da paz
Desta mesa, desta casa, perdidas?
Amor, qu’é de ti?

Ai, negras águas, ondas de mágoas
Gelaram-m’o fogo no olhar (Senhora do mar)
Feridas em sal, rezas em vão (Rezas em vão)
Deixai seu coração (Deixai seu coração)
Bater junto a mim (Bater junto a mim)

Ai, negras águas, ondas de mágoas
Gelaram-m’o fogo no olhar (Senhora do mar)
Ele não torna a navegar (Ele não torna a navegar)
E ninguém vos vê chorar (E ninguém vos vê chorar)
Senhora do mar (Senhora do mar) -pt

This deserved at least a top-3. Definitely better than Believe :(

Yeah, it should've finished in the same position it did in the semis. The melody's so strong and combined with the beautiful Portuguese, as well as singing by Vânia, it almost sounded like a winner. Should've at least finished top 10. :|

Best Portuguese entry in recent times, such a strong voice, and should have been on top 5! WAAY better than Believe, on par with Shady Lady- maybe even surpassing it :) This is like one of the best songs they have ever sent, it's up there with Chamar a Musica and Lusitana Paixão. 8-)

High five!

Haha! I was really disappointed with the results. The song had so much soul in it, and Vania's voice was fantastic. I have a feeling Europe voted more on looks in 2008 than anything else.

I was expecting it to be top 5 AT LEAST. If we had juries back then, it would have been in the top 10. Her voice is top notch, and the song was amazing too
That, and the running order for that song was bad to say the least. If it was one of the first/last 5 songs, it would have done well.

This was my winner that year. Vânia was fantastic. I admit I was a bit shocked to see how well it did in the semi and how low (at least in my opinion) it went in the final.

Well, you have to admire Portugal's audacity, to stick to the same type of act for almost all of their entries for decade after decade, and never even geting close to winning :)

Actually go and check the Portuguese best placings to see if the songs are the same style.
This song simply deserved the top 5.
