Ronaldo Bôscoli, famous lyricist, wrote with practically
every composer of the Bossa Nova movement,
including me.

If it is too late, forgive me. I came so tired and so alone.
I came with lies and deceit, planning to depart even as I
arrived. I bring disenchantments of so many loves
throughout life. But you had already discovered that life
is a good thing. Forgive me. I’m late.
