How Insensitive lyrics
The lyrics of the Bossa Nova How Insensitive are composed of two parts.
The structure of the lyrics is simple:
Part 1 – Part 2
A insensatez que você fez
Coração mais sem cuidado
Fez chorar de dor o meu amor
Um amor tão delicado
Ah, porque você foi fraco assim?
Assim tão desalmado
Ah, meu coração quem nunca amou
Não merece ser amado
Vai meu coração ouve a razão
Usa só sinceridade
Quem semeia vento, diz a razão
Colhe sempre tempestade
Vai, meu coração pede perdão
Vai porque quem não pede perdão
Não é nunca perdoado
