the days and the nights
the hours and minutes
time passing...
And I'm stuck in thoughts
walking to the beyond
going up and down hills
aboard a train
the train of my thoughts
I take my childhood loves with me
the heartbreaks
the hot jokes
death and loneliness...
I take one thousand friends in my heart
the paper boats that cross oceans
the sorrows of life that cause me harm...
I take the memories of my ancestors
and the memories of times that don't come back...
the baths in the flood
the game of bete on the dirt road
the pillow fights over the mattress
the fruits picked at the foot
the wind passing and arriving wherever it wants
I take the clouds from the horizon
the houses behind the hills...
I take pain, I miss you
the sadness that invades me
I take my world on the train...
a sad and deep look
a heartbeat
looking to the future
for a new generation...
but the train flies by
and the wagons derailing
and with me they are taking
stories lived illusions suffered lives...
the pilot is relentless
don't give a minute more
I ask friend for time give me just one more second
but he follows light
and say goodbye to the world



os dias e as noites
as horas e os minutos
o tempo passando...
E eu presa nos pensamentos
caminhando para o além
subindo e descendo ladeiras
a bordo de um trem
o trem dos meus pensamentos
levo comigo os amores de infância
as desilusões amorosas
as brincadeiras gostosas
a morte e a solidão...
levo mil amigos no coração
os barcos de papel que cruzam oceanos
as tristezas da vida que me causam danos...
levo as memórias dos meus ancestrais
e as lembranças de tempos que não voltam mais...
os banhos na enxurrada
o jogo de bete na estrada de chão
as guerras de travesseiro sobre o colchão
as frutas colhidas no pé
o vento passando e chegando onde quer
levo as nuvens do Horizonte
as casas atrás dos montes...
levo dor ,levo saudade
a tristeza que me invade
levo o meu mundo no trem...
um olhar triste e profundo
um bater de coração
olhando para o futuro
para uma nova geração...
mas o trem passa voando
e os vagões descarrilando
e consigo vão levando
histórias vividas ilusões sofridas vidas...
o piloto é implacável
não dá um minuto a mais
eu peço ao amigo tempo dê-me só mais um segundo
mas ele segue ligeiro
e me despeço do mundo

What Is The Color Of Love?

Prejudice This world is so unfair It makes me feel really bad treat differently the one who is equal He measures your worth Looking at your skin color And forget that in the veins The blood that flows is the same Red, symbol of struggle, after all. Forget that we are made From the same […]

Inner Beauty

It doesn't matter what I am on the outside It doesn't matter what I wear What matters is what's in the soul What matters is what I am inside Sometimes, on the outside, I have the beauty of a rose. Or the beauty of a monument But hurt, hate and rancor It's all I have […]

Echocardiogram Of Love

Today I heard my heart beat It was a big thrill Such strong beats resembling thunder on the computer screen I saw your serene image Saying with every touch that life is worth small blood vessels pumping hope I look at him from here And I feel like a child tum tum tum accelerated seems […]
