Lifestories - the lyrics / as letras

Bom dia!

Após vários pedidos e, uma vez que a edição física de Lifestories não inclui as letras das canções, venho aqui partilhá-las convosco :)

Cá vão:

ENG

Several people have asked me to share the lyrics to the songs on Lifestories, so, because the CD's digipack doesn't include them, I've decided to share them :)

Here they go:

 

1 - Very short story

Five o’clock I see your name

Poppin' 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 the 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 your soul and truth shall rise

Have a drink or two

Put in perspective pros and cons

Tell somebody your worries

After all we’ve all been there

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

 

2 - 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 thinkin’ 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 thinkin’ 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 thinkin’ 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 every time 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.

 

3 - 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!

 

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!

 

4 - Baby let’s get close

Won’t you get close to me

Can’t seem to leave your door

Every time 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.

 

5 - 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.

 

6 - 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...

 

7 - 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. 

 

8 - Unravel (Bjork)

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.

 

10 - 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.

Hello all!

I'm so excited and nervous that my new album LIFESTORIES is coming. It's been a long 6 months of hard work, listening, listening some more, stressing out and then being so happy about it :).

I've had the precious and priceless collaboration of a lot of great people, like the fantastic musicians that rehearsed and recorded my music (in a way I could have never imagined), and are my musical family: Bruno Santos, Óscar Graça, Romeu Tristão, Joel Silva, plus special guests Ricardo Toscano and Pedro Vidal (who was also responsible for recording, editing, producing, mixing and mastering at Estúdio Vale de Lobos; wonder couple Joana Barrios and Carlos Pinto who produced, styled and photographed me; and Pedro Lança, who is still working on the beautiful artwork for LIFESTORIES' cover.

I can't wait to share it all with you!!!!

Olá a todos!

O meu disco novo LIFESTORIES está quase aí e estou muito ansiosa por isso. Foram 6 meses de muito trabalho, escuta intensiva, stress e... felicidade :).

Tenho a sorte de ter amigos incríveis, com quem pude contar para tornar este disco uma realidade, desde os fantásticos músicos que ensaiaram e gravaram a minha música (de uma forma que eu nunca poderia imaginar) e que são a minha família musical: Bruno Santos, Óscar Graça, Romeu Tristão, Joel Silva, mais os convidados especialíssimos Ricardo Toscano e Pedro Vidal (que foi também responsável pela captação, edição, produção, edição e masterização no Estúdio Vale de Lobos); ao casal maravilha Joana Barrios - que produziu e fez o styling para a sessão de fotos - e Carlos Pinto - que me fotografou; e ao Pedro Lança, que ainda está a trabalhar no artwork da capa de LIFESTORIES.

Ansiosa por partilhar tudo convosco!!!!!
