12 desejos

I
Muda de vida
Se tu não vives satisfeito.
Muda de vida
Estás sempre a tempo de mudar.
Muda de vida
Não deves viver contrafeito.
Muda de vida
Se há vida em ti a latejar.
Ver-te a sorrir, eu nunca te vi
E a cantar, eu nunca te ouvi.
Será de ti ou pensas que tens
Que ser assim?
Olha que a vida não,
Não é nem deve ser
Como um castigo que
Tu terás que viver.

I hope this old train breaks down
then I could take a walk around
and see what there is to see
time is just a melody.
With all the people in the street
walking as fast as their feet can take them
I just roll through town
and though my windows got a view
well the frame I’m looking through
seems to have no concern for me now.
So for now I'I need this old train to breakdown
oh please just let me please breakdown
Well this engine screams out loud
Centipede gonna crawl westbound
so I don’t even make a sound
Because its gonna sting me when I leave this town
And all the people in the street
that I’ll never get to meet
if these tracks don’t bend somehow
and I got no time
that I got to get to
where I don’t need to be
So I'I need this old train to breakdown
oh please just let me please breakdown
I want to break on down
but I can’t stop now
let me break on down
But you can’t stop nothing
if you got no control
of the thoughts in your mind
that you kept and you know
you don’t know nothing
but you don’t need to know
the wisdoms in the trees
not the glass windows
You can't stop wishing
If you don’t let goof the things that you find
and you lose, and you know
you keep on rolling
put the moment on hold
the frames too bright
so put the blinds down low
I need this old train to breakdown
oh please just let me please breakdown
I want to break on down
but I can’t stop now.

Time goes by so slowly for those who wait

No time to hesitate
Those who run seem to have all the fun
I'm caught up
I don't know what to do
Time goes by so slowly
I don't know what to do
I can't keep on waiting for you
I know that you're still hesitating
Don't cry for me'cause I'll find my way
you'll wake up one day
but it'll be too late
Time goes by so slowly
so slowly so slowly
Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you

one night to be confused

one night to speed up truth
we had a promise made
four hands and then away
both under influence
we had divine scent
to know what to say
mind is a razorblade
to call for hands of above
to lean on
wouldn't be good enough
for me, no..
one night of magic rush
the start a simple touch
one night to push and scream
and then relief
ten days of perfect tunes
the colors red and blue
we had a promise made
we were in love
to call for hands of above
to lean on
wouldn't be good enough
for me, no..
to call for hands of above
to lean on
wouldn't be good enough
and you, you knew the hands of the devil
and you, kept us awake with wolf's teeth
sharing different heartbeats
in one night
to call for hands of above
to lean on
wouldn't be good enough
for me, no..

V
You're such a beautiful freak
I wish there were more just like you
you're not like all of the others
and that is why i love you..
beautiful freak, beautiful freak
some people think you have a problem
but that problem lies only with them
just 'cause you are not like the others
but that is why i love you
beautiful freak, beautiful freak
too good for this world
but I hope you will stay
and I’ll be here to see
that you don't fade away
you're such a beautiful freak
I bet you are flying inside
dart down and then go for cover
and know that I
I love you
beautiful freak,
you know that I
I love you
beautiful freak, beautiful freak.

VI
…and I will find a place to hide inside
My little world of shadows and faded smiles
So don’t you be scared
I’ll take the monsters from beneath your bed
And I will hold you tight
Tonight…


VII
Drink up baby, stay up all night
with the things you could do,
you won't but you might.
The potential you'll be
that you'll never see,
the promises you'll only make..
Drink up with me now
and forget all about
the pressure of days,
do what I say
and I'll make you okay
and drive them away,
the images stuck in your head.
People you've been before
that you don't want around anymore,
that push and shove and won't bend to your will,
I’ll keep them still.
Drink up, baby, look at the stars,
I'll kiss you again
between the bars,
where I’m seeing you there
with your hands in the air
waiting to finally be caught.
Drink up one more time
and I'll make you mine
keep you apart
deep in my heart
separate from the rest,
where I like you the best,
and keep the things you forgot.
The people you've been before
that you don't want around anymore
that push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still..

VIII
Still you’re near. Still you call.

The fears and sighs, I hear them all.
Like those Christmas times,
when we would not sleep,
just lay there warm and proud
All your wishes for something somewhere.
And it’s never far, oh, what all we were.
But all that’s changing now.
All your wishes for something somewhere.
Through this different town,
with its different streets,
still the thought of you.
And what’s left behind when each evening ends?
Roads to where we’ve been…?
All your wishes...
All your wishes for something somewhere..

IX
I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned and I have to speculate that God himself did make us into corresponding shapes like puzzle pieces from the clay and true, it may seem like a stretch, but its thoughts like this that catch my troubled head when you're away when I am missing you to death, when you are out there on the road for several weeks of shows and when you scan the radio, I hope this song will guide you home.
They will see us waving from such great heights, "come down now" they'll say, but everything looks perfect from far away, "come down now" but we'll stay...


X
Always and forever
We'll be free
Always and forever
Be with me
We'll have love aplenty
We'll have joys outnumbered
We'll share perfect moments
You and me...

XI
I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well he just drove off, sometimes life's ok
I ran my mouth off a bit too much, oh what did I say
Well you just laughed it off, it was all ok
And we'll all float on, ok
And we'll all float on any way, well
A fake Jamaican took every last dime with a scam
It was worth it just to learn from sleight-of-hand
Bad news comes don't you worry even when it lands
Good news will work its way to all them plans
We both got fired on sadly the same day
Well we'll float on, good news is on the way
And we'll all float on, ok
And we'll all float on, alright
Already we'll all float on
Now don't you worry we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Alright don't worry we'll all float on
Alright already and we'll all float on
Alright don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy
We'll all float on...alright
Already we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on, ok
Don’t worry we'll all float on
Even if things get heavy, we'll all float on

XII
Vou viver até quando eu não sei,
que me importa o que serei..
Quero é viver.
Amanhã, espero sempre um amanhã
e acredito que será mais um prazer.
E a vida é sempre uma curiosidade
que me desperta com a idade,
interessa-me o que está para vir.
A vida em mim é sempre uma certeza
que nasce da minha riqueza
do meu prazer em descobrir.
Encontrar, renovar, vou fugir ao repetir.
