Track Name: Truths and Lies
Truths and Lies

Comon soldier fight, if you wanna
Lift your head real high, if you wanna
Comon doctor talk, if you wanna
Reveal all you’ve got, if you wanna
Bring on anger shout, if you wanna
Coat it all with lies, if you wanna
Comon soldier fight, if you wanna
Lift your head real high, if you wanna

Truth is a shade
That covers up your sun
If can do you harm
Though you try to Light it up with words

Truth is a stain
That can’t be cleansed or washed away
It can lead the way
To an eagger mindful being, though it won’t fit

Mouth is dried out
Preaching my vision through song
Song
Song


Comon soldier fight, if you wanna
Lift your head real high, if you wanna
Comon doctor talk, if you wanna
Reveal all you’ve got, if you wanna
Bring on anger shout, if you wanna
Coat it all with lies, if you wanna
Comon soldier fight, if you wanna
Lift your head real high, if you wanna

Truth has way
Of pleasing only who forsakes
Inconvenient though
As believers wish to live in
Their imaginary world

Truth brings you pain
For it obliges self-view
Seek your Comfort-zone
In assurance that transparency’s a revolutionary act
All dried out, bring water to my song

Selfish man
Heart is cold
Determined to be

Selfish man
All alone
Ain’t nobody loves you
You love noone
Selfish man
Take a look around
You’ll miss it all
In the name of

Gold
Dig deep
Gold
See if it shines
Gold
Choose wisely
Gold
Check for flaws
Gold
Bite it
Gold
Clean it up
Gold
Sell it

Track Name: Tango Fado Morna Blues
Tango fado Morna Blues

Talk to me love
If I can be of any help assisting you in your path
I’d be just thrilled to let you know
That life is a battlefield
We all go through
So carry love in your heart
And you’ll find that’s the only way
To get by

Honey it hurts
To grow
But chill
Once you nurtur yourself you’ll be swell
Feelings, someone, people, something, things
Truly live free
Liberdade!

Sometimes you fall
And it’s an endless downhill
But be happy
Life is makin’ sure
You don’t grow too many roots
...
This is my tango, fado, morna, blues

What do I see across the way, hey
See myself molded in clay, ah
Stares at me yeah, i’m afraid, hey
Changin’ the shape of his face, oh
Yeah

Littel boy made a mistake, hey
Pink cloud has now turned to grey, ah
All that I want is to play, hey
Get on your knees, time to pray, oh
Yeah...
Track Name: Do you Know?
Do You Know?

“Live alone, move away”
These are advises I hear
Among other
“Don’t feel, don’t feel”
Live has a process of chosing what’s right
But who knows?
(not me)

“Behave, don’t smile
Crave for what they have
Don’t be beautiful
Thay can’t take it”
In this wide place
There’s only room for one skill
Whether it’s singin’ or it’s all about your looks

Did you know?
You weren’t here
So how on earth did you know?
Do you know?
How could you know?
....
Track Name: Infatuation
Infatuation

Often you come ‘round my bed
Oh slowly
Feel you inside me, our love
So sweet
Thinkin’ my heart was filled
Right from the start
Now let me see you smilin’ baby
Lovin’ you makes my world spin

When love resists your skin
Oh, let it in
Take a chance and you will feel
So swell
Infatuated lovers
Give in
Open up your heart and love will flow

When love resists your skin
Oh, let it in
Take a chance and you will feel
So swell
Infatuated lovers
Give in
Open up your heart and love will flow

I’m drawn in, spellbound
Oh swwt love of mine
Caught you starin’, those eyes
Ashine
You’re rushing’ through my bloodstream, searchin’
No more
I’m Yours
Track Name: That's Life
That’s Life

Each time you smile
Words that make you cry
It’s the things that just happen
Unwanted, unplanned
A kiss, a crush, disapointment
Revenue, All you care for
Life is this wonderful thing
Terrible too

Secrets you share
Things you never told
Some people you meet
Happy coincidences, shocking truths
Perfect shoes for the occasion
Though inside you are broken
Life, paints this fabulous picture
A perfect you

Loss of a Child
Flowers at your door
Someone you admire
Rings you up
Friends went away
Others that you gain
Show you
Life is worth it
Breathe it all in

Thank you’s, good-byes
Anger, I love you’s
In your mouth a fresh flavour
Sadness in your eyes
Images of that summer
I was young, you were mine
Life took an interesting turn
To start anew
