This song is by Melody Gardot and appears on the album The Absence (2012).

Lisboa Lisboa
The sorrow of your days gone by
Now the hinterland of lovers should lay
Beneath all your vacant skies

Lisboa Lisboa
From Alfama's arms to Liberdade
Paper lanterns, falling embers
And quiet cantors sing of saudade

The ever twilight amber of your alleyways
Paint the air of evening oh so well
And strolls about the river bank
Suggests there's history left to tell
Aye Lisboa
A paradise besides the sea
There's a beauty
To the absence of tainting all of your scenery

Lisboa e Luz boa
Lisboa e Pessoa
Lisboa tem Chiado
Tem Alfama e tem Fado

Da era de severa
D'um tempo que ja era
Nas ruas de Lisboa
Eu vou
Das tuas colinas
Milagres e simas
Nas praças, rainhas
Flores e Rimas
Eu vou
Ele, I, Esse, Bê, Ó, Á
