Track Name: Very Short Story
Very short story



Five o’clock I see your name
Popping up on my iPhone
Little did I know
What the news would bring along
I of course took the cal but my good mood was soon to turn
Well to simplify what I found out already knew
Was that some people toy around while others do

And we cried together
And we died a little
But there’s always a new start
Better things around the corner
Life will smile again real soon
So stay awhile

Time and time again
Empowered ones will set th rules
But our disposition
When we’ve under-slept
Overworked
Been undermined
Barely paid
May lead us to say
I’ll be going other away

Think, don’t act in fear
Seek in yourself and truth shall rise
Have a drink or two
Put in perspective pros and cons
Tell somebody your worries
After all we’re all the same
Well needless to say the situation stinks but screw ‘em
Plus their petty talk
Together we’ll be fine after the devil blinks

And we’ll cry together
But we’ll live a little
‘cos there’s always a new start
Better things around the corner
Life is smiling back again so do your part
Track Name: Love (Please Get Me You)!
Love (Please get me you)!



I’m hoping that love
Will get me you
All I need is your love
To help me go through
I’m thinking that I grew a fantasy ‘bout love that can’t be true
Oh love, please get me you

I’m hoping that love
Will get me you
All I need is your love
To help me go through
I’m thinking that I grew a fantasy ‘bout love that can’t be true
Oh love, please get me you

Love is like a symphony
The A part comes twice
But it fades out of history
When it goes to B and it’s wrong

Oh love
Will get me you
All I need is your love
To help me go through
I’m thinking that I grew a fantasy ‘bout love that can’t be true
Oh love, please get me you
Please get me you
Please get me you

‘Cos evrytime I close my eyes
I still dream that i have you
I dream that i have you
Andy ou know
That for each time our bodies touched
Our souls went travelling
Travelling

Love won’t turn its back on you
Deep in the night
But it won’t make emends with you
If you’ve done it wrong
Like the end of this song

Oh Love
Please get me you
Please get me you
Please get me you
Track Name: Both Ways
Both Ways




You can’t go both ways
Left Right
Oh, come over
I’m your deepest desire
Why?
All our wishes are

Travelling by
Insane
Uh, How will it be?
Choose me
Sun goes down as I

Comprise how it feels
To know
That there’s no other way
To be lost with you
We can’t
We choose otherness

Slaves of the moon
We bring all our fantasies into our love
Make it go away
I can’t handle it no more!

Oh Oh Oh Oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh

I’ve chosen to be
Outrageous
And that frightens you
Go on lead your own way
Towards
Preppy happiness

Take it elsewhere
It stinks
Who believes anyway
This will end our romance
Deep
I will always be

In all your dreams
Wishes
You could be bolder
I’m not leaving without
A kiss
I’ve bewitched you so

Come, ride with me
A cloud with remains of this spiritual love
Make it go away
It’s too hot for you, go on!

Oh Oh Oh Oh
Track Name: Baby Let's Get Close
Baby let’s get close



Won’t you get close to me
Can’t seem to leave your door
Evrytime I think of you
I just want your body next to mine
Next to mine
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my

Won’t you get close to me
Feels I’ve been here before
Begging for a little love
Come on now it’s not like it’s any crime
Any crime
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my

Now that you’re close to me
How ‘bout we do an encore
‘Cos the spark we create together
Gets me doing things like writing songs in rhyme
Songs in rhyme
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my
Oh my oh my oh my oh my

Let me get close to you
I wanna see your inside
Open up share with me what you got
Let’s take a ride
Track Name: Unfriend
Unfriend



Once inspired
Now just holding on to survive
Used to have
A strong belief that love made us thrive

Trust gets small
At every broken step in your way
Life, I say
Will turn and stars aligned will allow

You, my girl
to see the good within somehow
Find a way to believe

You have it all
I reckon now you’re mad and Lost
Tenderness

Girl I know
Times are hard but don’t fade out
Reassess
Love

Us once more
Even though the bruises remain
Wish I knew
How to make emends with such pain

In my heart
Against all the odds you prevail
Find your way back to me

A friendship fail
I can’t tell you just how much life’s changed
Since we parted

Can’t be your friend
Although the years have passed I’m still
Broken hearted

I’ve cut you out
Track Name: O Azul
O Azul



Infinito aberto
Tão profundo de dimensão
Tu pertences ao lugar
De descoberta
De que o mundo não se desfaz
Lástima, corrosão

Sai de mim
Raiva fel e mais
Um sonho que trago do mar
Como não
Chegar ao fim da hora
Em que fico contigo à espera do tal

Vem Outono deixa lá o amor de um dia
Não resistas ao encanto doce à escuta
Cai o pano de outra vida não te exiles
Que o piano toca o mapa de uma escuridão

Infinito aberto
Desistimos de ti tão só
Porque o medo nunca vai
Inteiramente
Mas sabemos no fim que uma curta canção
Não faz mal...

Tu quiseste ficar só, não sabias
Que o silêncio não te traz, sossego
Viajaste sem sair , não pudeste
Desfazer-te por sinal, da fronteira
Do azul, do azul, do azul, do azul

Vem Outono deixa lá o amor de um dia
Não resistas ao encanto doce à escuta
Cai o pano de outra vida não te exiles
Que o piano toca o mapa de uma escuridão...
Track Name: Off Track
Off Track



Life as a discovery
That happiness can be a creative state
Enjoy the good
But don’t settle
Self-complacency keeps you deluded
Take that step further
You know that mediocrity keeps the system going
You won’t be projected
Your work won’t get elected
Instead expect to be rejected
For that relentlessness living inside of you
Stops you from being satisfied with such littleness

Wondering, figuring out decoding
It’s a constant math
You know life ought to be fairer, truer

Life
It ain’t easy
Keep in route
It will lead you somewhere
Rough Times
Make you change
Stay awake
Ohhhhhhh

We’re all just ordinary people
Being part of a whole that is failing
We’re settling for something unwanted
‘Cos our course didn’t go as planned
Track Name: Unravel
Unravel



While you are away
My heart comes undone
Slowly unravels
In a ball of yarn
Devil collects it
With a grin
Our love
In a ball of yarn

He’ll never return it
So when you come back
We’ll have to make new love
He’ll never return it
So when you come back
We’ll have to make new love
He’ll never return it
So when you come back
We’ll have to make new love
Track Name: Maria
Maria



Maria,
Desde que existes
Que a vida se tornou
Uma casa cheia de amor
Maria, Maria

Com os teus olhos
Meigos sorris
Mergulho nos teus caracóis
Fitas de seda cor de avelã
Maria, Maria

Não gasto o teu nome em vão
Mas não sei explicar como todas as coisas
E o mundo jamais substituiriam
Oitenta e dois centímetros de Maria

Bailarina
Maria
Menina,
Não deixo que a vida passe
Sem que a memória de ti assim, aqui
Se crave para todo o sempre
No meu presente

Não gasto o teu nome em vão
Mas não sei explicar como todas as coisas
E o mundo jamais substituiriam
Oitenta e dois centímetros de Maria
