A good dose of daily routine
takes away an equal dose of daily surprises..
(spoken)

Wake up, wake up in the early morning,
a cigarette to begin, coffee to drink.
Watching the day rise
and get inside its womb.

Wake up, wake up on a strange day.
Looking up, looking for the sun.
Might be that, the morning is a bad day
Well, better begin to improve it, ah, ah.

D’you know where is the morning?
D’you know, where?
D’you know where is the morning?
D’you know, where?

Get up, get up, it's early morning.
What will you do today, to get it tonight?
Could be that the morning starts off a bad day
Well, better begin to improve it, ah, ah.

Wake up, you wake up the luck,
that you've never looked for,
because you looked for more.
Lady luck tried to get you to live her way,
well, but you found another way,
the way that everyone tries but they forget the way there.

D’you know where is the morning?
D’you know, where?
D’you know where is the morning?

Wake up, wake up, I got delayed
for my awakening!

DO YOU KNOW WHERE IS THE MORNING?

I'm surprised, everybody runs,
I turn and I see they’ve already passed.
I regret to have some unpleasant gratitude
I remove all, to be free from stupid things.
Believe me, not like the parvenues,
I really don't understand how they do.

I’m surprised, everyone sleeps,
I turn but I see them so tarnished.
It's painful to think of everybody's faults,
of those who have and cry, of those who think they don't have anything,
of those who spend time laughing for nothing.

Believe me, I hate those parvenues,
I really don't understand how they do
To laugh, ‘cause nobody is better than you..
Thinking sins belong to those who aren’t like you

Everybody runs,
especially when I stop and they pass me.
I regret I have got some stupid gratitude
I go bare, I wanna be free
from everything that bothers me,
and everything that hurts those who have nothing..

 

DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW THEY DO

Do you know how they are tied up or free?
The hands that know to touch like a shiver.
Ice cold insensitive,
red hot so warm their touch.

Light hands with sweetness
untying the wrists are true lovers
Creating rivers, sounds and magic
and at night know how to play every chord.

They write to you, they knock on your door.
you wake in a hurry,
you’ll see around you many soft hands blues.

Like the sunset, the dunes and the sand,
falling down and filling me right up
Red is the color of mydisarming warmth.
Barehanded I grant you this dance. 

They write to you, they knock on your door.
you awake in hurry, you'll see 
in front of you these soft hands,
hands blues. 

And you’ll see around you a lot of hands looking for you..   


HANDS BLUES

I know what you’ve done
going back for days,
fly away from my eyes, a little way.

She's beautiful lawless,
wrapped in attitude
She's like aerostatics
Yes she is!
 
But praise doesn't bring happiness?
Reading about a moment,
fly away from me,
far away from me, far away for me
I would be disappointed, after much consideration.
I would be unfair, but the reality doesn't lie to me.

Existing to lie, the sentence of fact.
And ambition's only an idiocy of the past.

She is like aerostatics,
she does her job well.
She likes to fall in love
on social networks
she knows how to do
she knows how to be
aerostatics.

Everyone likes to feel fine,
nobody likes to be controlled!

Better to lose than to win with those who don't know how to play.
How to play?

Wait before you go,
did you lose your old parts?
Reject envy,
who never tells the truth.
Wait before you sleep.
Did I steal a someone dream?
Maybe some words
I wonder if I'm wrong.
And if you’re right, stay anyway.
The wait oozes goodness.
Although whatever, a bit at a time, it begins to bore you.
Where love is missing there’s no reason to be there.
Where love is then, it’s good to wait.
So now you realize is love that’s missing!
We didn’t harm anyone.
Who can hurt us, then?
Who was faster than us did no wrong.
Who was faster than us didn’t do wrong.
Who was faster than us didn’t do wrong.
WHO WAS FASTER THAN US

Summer afternoon
close to the sea.
The town is far away,
the nights are so long.
Far from coke addicts and boozers.
Above the sky sings,
singing in front of the sea,
singing above the trees.
A bird whistling the blues,
up in the sky,
on a summer afternoon.

 

SUMMER AFTERNOON (bird whistling the blues)

Sometimes you don’t think enough,
I wonder how you do.
Sometimes you can’t see well,
You hit what’s unknown.

You’re a gun,
You empty out the mind

Sometimes you like to suck the sap,
I wonder how you can.
Sometimes the past sucks,
You aim and shoot for that.

You’re a gun,
You empty out the mind

I hope I’m not wrong,
I hope you’re not gunning at me from behind.

 

 

 

YOU ARE A GUN

She doesn't, she doesn't love to be loved,
She doesn't love the love,
and there's nothing more wrong.
She doesn't, doesn't do harm,
loves to sit at home,
to spend long hours in her bedroom,
eating yogurt and reading books,
and above all wondering about this world.
You can even give her your soul,
but she lives on her own way.
You can give her everything she needs
but she will never let go!
OK? Allright?
She doesn't, she doesn't love commitments,
she doesn't like the times
and so she's always out of her mind.
She loves to sit at home,
dreaming about worlds with the window closed.
SHE DOESN'T

Bye bye sad lullaby
bad kind of surprise,
sound of music box.

Blue room with a few rays
a kind of denial or losing reason.

Lady weeping purple dress
Be lounge Diva
and people are willing to deceive.

Going down, going down,
beyond the words spoken.
Going down, going down,
beyond ourselves.

Bye bye old lullaby
a kind of surprise,
like a water flavor.

I can’t not think of you
Wandering somewhere
Maybe I’ll laugh or I’ll cry
Holding photos of (my) mistakes

Behind the glass there lies my window’s pain
Makes me wonder where’s the reason in my mind

In the shades of the past and with no future
Maybe I’ll laugh or maybe I will cry

Since you left me alone
Even the air has no sky
Such long days gone in silence
Waiting for the great dream
