Descobri esta cantora há uns meses, e rendi-me completamente! :rolleyes:
Aconselho a quem gosta de R&B... :whistling:


Hey Mann - Lizz Wright

<!--fonto:Book Antiqua--><span style="font-family:Book Antiqua"><!--/fonto-->Hey mann what you doing here
I don't remember letting you in

Hey mann how d'you get in here
You're in my heart without consent

I always took pride in my selfcontrol
To my heart only I had the key

But something's gone wrong with my radar screen
You slipped by and you captured me

Hey mann what you doing here
I don't remember letting you in

Hey mann how d'you get in here
You're in my heart without consent

I've done all I could to keep my head clear
Logic tells me that this should never be

But there's no mistaking the shape I'm in
Love has filled my every waking day

Hey mann what you doing here
I don't remember letting you in

Hey mann how d'you get in here
You're in my heart without consent

Now hear, here's the strangest thing
The day has come I thought I'd never see

I walk smiling in a lightglow and I'm calling out your name
I've lost the battle and I'm quiet well pleased

Hey mann what you doing here
I don't remember letting you in

Hey mann how d'you get in here
You're in my heart

Hey mann what you doing here
I don't remember letting you in

Hey mann how d'you get in here
You're in my heart

Tenho tantas :unsure:
É tão fácil para mim associar um momento a uma música ou banda, e, por isso ainda não tinha aqui colocado nada.
Hoje esta música foi alvo de uma conversa não do tipo "onde estavas no 25 de Abril", mas "onde estavas há 22 anos", e, como foi uma letras que me "marcaram" aqui vai:

We Are The World
<!--fonto:Verdana--><span style="font-family:Verdana"><!--/fonto--><!--sizeo:2-->[size=85]<!--/sizeo--><!--sizeo:0-->[size=100]<!--/sizeo-->
<!--sizec-->[/color]<!--/sizec--><!--sizec-->[/color]<!--/sizec--><!--fontc-->[/color]<!--/fontc-->There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We're all a part of God's great big family
And the truth, you know, love is all we need

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me

Send them your heart
So they'll know that someone cares
And their lifes will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
and so we all must lend a helping hand

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me

When you're down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there's no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well let us realize oh! that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me


We are the world
(are the world)
We are the children
(are the children)
We are the ones who'll make a brighter day so lets start giving
(so let's start giving)
There's a choice we're makin'
We're savin' our own lives
It's true we'll make a brighter day, just you and me
ohh let me hear you!!!

WHY are we so willing to hate, yet so UNWILLING to actually be kind, to show some love?

"Earth Song" by MICHAEL JACKSON

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain...
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we've shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores?

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

What have we done to the world
Look what we've done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son...
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don't know where we are
Although I know we've drifted far

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

Hey, what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can't even breathe
(What about us)
What about apathy
(What about us)
I need you
(What about us)
What about nature's worth
(ooo, ooo)
It's our planet's womb
(What about us)
What about animals
(What about it)
We've turned kingdoms to dust
(What about us)
What about elephants
(What about us)
Have we lost their trust
(What about us)
What about crying whales
(What about us)
We're ravaging the seas
(What about us)
What about forest trails
(ooo, ooo)
Burnt despite our pleas
(What about us)
What about the holy land
(What about it)
Torn apart by creed
(What about us)
What about the common man
(What about us)
Can't we set him free
(What about us)
What about children dying
(What about us)
Can't you hear them cry
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
(ooo, ooo)
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about babies
(What about it)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
(What about us)
What about the man
(What about us)
What about the crying man
(What about us)
What about Abraham
(What was us)
What about death again
(ooo, ooo)
Do we give a damn

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

Do What You Have To Do - Sarah McLachlan

What ravages of spirit
conjured this temptuous rage
created you a monster
broken by the rules of love
and fate has lead you through it
you do what you have to do
and fate has led you through it
you do what you have to do ...

and I have the sense to recognize that
I don't know how to let you go
every moment marked
with apparitions of your soul
I'm ever swiftly moving
trying to escape this desire
the yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
the yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
but I have the sense to recognize

that I don't know how
to let you go
I don't know how
to let you go

a glowing ember
burning hot
burning slow
deep within I'm shaken by the violence
of existing for only you

I know I can't be with you
I do what I have to do
I know I can't be with you
I do what I have to do
and I have sense to recognize but
I don't know how to let you go
I don't know how to let you go
I don't know how to let you go
Ana

Xi!! Tantas! Depende do momento. Houve uma altura em que só cantava coisas da Tori Amos (pobres vizinhos :rolleyes: ). Aqui vai uma dela para amostra.

"China"

All the way to New York
I can feel the distance getting close
You're right next to me
But I need an airplane
I can feel the distance as you breathe
Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build the great wall around you
In your eyes I saw the future
Together you just look away in the distance

China decorates our table
Funny how the cracks don't seem to show
Pour the wine dear
You say we'll take a holiday
But we never can agree on where to go

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build the great wall around you
In your eyes I saw the future
Together you just look away in the distance

China all the way to New York
Maybe you got lost in Mexico
You're right next to me
I think that you can hear me
Funny how the distance
Learns to grow

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build the great wall around you
In your eyes I saw the future
Together you just look away in the distance

I can feel the distance
I can feel the distance
I can feel the distance getting close

Uma história de amor que tomou para mim uma dimensão inesperada:

Thunder road - Bruce Springsteen

The screen door slams
Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch
As the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey that's me and I want you only
Don't turn me home again
I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside
darling you know just what I'm here for
So you're scared and you're thinking
That maybe we ain't that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me

You can hide 'neath your covers
And study your pain
Make crosses from your lovers
Throw roses in the rain
Waste your summer praying in vain
For a savior to rise from these streets
Well now I'm no hero
That's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl
Is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow
Hey what else can we do now
Except roll down the window
And let the wind blow back your hair
Well the night's busting open
These two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back
Heaven's waiting on down the tracks
Oh oh come take my hand
Riding out tonight to case the promised land
Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road
oh Thunder Road
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold
Thunder Road

Well I got this guitar
And I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back
If you're ready to take that long walk
>From your front porch to my front seat
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
And I know you're lonely
For words that I ain't spoken
But tonight we'll be free
All the promises'll be broken
There were ghosts in the eyes
Of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets

They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch they're gone
On the wind, so Mary climb in
It's a town full of losers
And I'm pulling out of here to win.

<!--fonto:Verdana--><span style="font-family:Verdana"><!--/fonto-->Bem, eu também sou uma music addict e é mesmo dificil escolher de entre tantas músicas que me tocam muito, mas aqui fica o top 3 das letras especiais:


Frank Sinatra - My Way


And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, Ill say it clear,
Ill state my case, of which Im certain.

Ive lived a life thats full.
Ive traveled each and evry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, Ive had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, Im sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.

Ive loved, Ive laughed and cried.
Ive had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
No, oh no not me,
I did it my way.

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!



Keola and Kapono Beamer - Only Good times


We were friends who rode the waves
Time we spent in our younger days
Was all in fun, Oh the good times that we had.

We were young and it was fine
To feel your spirits as it climbs
There no regrets, only good times.

We were friends in our younger days
Although we went our separate ways
You were my friend, you never turned away

Who can say what life will do,
Life is kind to just a few
Theres no regrets, only good times.

In time we will grow We will change

Just as free as the wind and the waves

Live your life the way you choose
Find the ones who laugh with you
Like the sea will find it's way to shore

As the sun sinks from the sky
Live your life and you will find

Theres no regrets, only good times,
only good times....




Guns and Roses - November Rain


[/size]<!--fontc-->[/color]<!--/fontc--><!--fonto:Verdana--><span style="font-family:Verdana"><!--/fonto--> When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin' when I hold you
Don't you know I feel the same

Nothin' lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain

We've been through this such a long long time
Just tryin' to kill the pain

But lovers always come and lovers always go
An no one's really sure who's lettin' go today
Walking away

If we could take the time
to lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin' that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
then darlin' don't refrain
Or I'll just end up walkin'
In the cold November rain

Do you need some time...on your own
Do you need some time...all alone
Everybody needs some time...
on their own
Don't you know you need some time...all alone

I know it's hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn't time be out to charm you

Sometimes I need some time...on my
own
Sometimes I need some time...all alone
Everybody needs some time...
on their own
Don't you know you need some time...all alone

And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain
I know that you can love me
When there's no one left to blame
So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
Nothin' lasts forever
Even cold November rain

Don't ya think that you need somebody
Don't ya think that you need someone
Everybody needs somebody
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

As letras que mais me marcaram? Hum...


Sétima Legião - Por Quem Não Esqueci

"Há uma voz de sempre,
Que chama por mim.
Para que eu lembre,
Que a noite tem fim.

Ainda procuro,
Por quem não esqueci.
Em nome de um sonho,
Em nome de ti.

Procuro à noite,
Um sinal de ti.
Espero à noite,
Por quem não esqueci.

Eu peço à noite,
Um sinal de ti.
Quem eu não esqueci...

Por sinais perdidos,
Espero em vão.
Por tempos antigos,
Por uma canção.

Ainda procuro,
Por quem não esqueci.
Por quem já não volta,
Por quem eu perdi."


(esta música tem algo muito português, não acham?)


Depois há algumas dos Genesis que têm mensagens interessantes, por exemplo:

Dancing With The Moonlit Knight

"Can you tell me where my country lies?
Said the unifaun to his true loves eyes.
It lies with me! cried the queen of maybe
- for her merchandise, he traded in his prize.

Paper late! cried a voice in the crowd.
Old man dies! the note he left was signed old father thames
- it seems hes drowned;
Selling england by the pound.

Citizens of hope & glory,
Time goes by - its the time of your life.
Easy now, sit you down.
Chewing through your wimpey dreams,
They eat without a sound;
Digesting england by the pound.

Young man says you are what you eat - eat well.
Old man says you are what you wear - wear well.
You know what you are, you dont give a damn;
Bursting your belt that is your homemade sham.

The captain leads his dance right on through the night
- join the dance...
Follow on! till the grail sun sets in the mould.
Follow on! till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the green shield stamp and shout.

Theres a fat old lady outside the saloon;
Laying out the credit cards she plays fortune.
The deck is uneven right from the start;
And all of their hands are playing apart.

The captain leads his dance right on through the night
- join the dance...
Follow on! a round table-talking down we go.
Youre the show!
Off we go with - you play the hobbyhorse,
Ill play the fool.
Well tease the bull
Ringing round & loud, loud & round.

Follow on! with a twist of the world we go.
Follow on! till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the green shield stamp and shout
"


The Knife

"For Those that Trespass against us


Tell me my life is about to begin
Tell me that I am a hero,
Promise me all of your violent dreams
Light up your body with anger.
Now, in this ugly world
it is time to destroy all this evil.
Now, when I give the word
get ready to fight for your freedom
Now -

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies
That have spread like disease through our minds.
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness
To all who our love now deserve.
Some of you are going to die -
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide.

I'll give you the names of those you must kill,
All must die with their children.
Carry their heads to the palace of old,
Hang them high, let the blood flow.
Now, in this ugly world
break all the chains around us,
Now, the crusade has begun
give us a land fit for heroes,
Now -

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies
That have spread like disease through our minds.
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness
To all who our love now deserve.
Some of you are going to die -
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide.

We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom ("Freedom, freedom, freedom, freedom...")
We are only wanting freedom ("Things are getting out of control here today")
We are only wanting freedom ("OK men - fire over their heads!")
We are only wanting freedom

--- WE HAVE WON ---

Some of you are going to die,
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide"



Jesus He Knows Me

"You see the face on the tv screen
Coming at you every sunday
See that face on the billboard
That man is me

On the cover of the magazine
Theres no question why Im smiling
You buy a piece of paradise
You buy a piece of me

Ill get you everything you wanted
Ill get you everything you need
Dont need to believe in hereafter
Just believe in me

Cos jesus he knows me
And he knows Im right
Ive been talking to jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows Im right
And hes been telling me
Everything is alright

I believe in the family
With my ever loving wife beside me
But she dont know about my girlfriend
Or the man I met last night

Do you believe in god
Cos thats what Im selling
And if you wanna get to heaven
Ill see you right

You wont even have to leave your house
Or get outta your chair
You dont even have to touch that dial
Cos Im everywhere

And jesus he knows me
And he knows Im right
Ive been talking to jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows Im right
Well hes been telling me
Everythings gonna be alright

Wont find me practising what Im preaching
Wont find me making no sacrifice
But I can get you a pocketful of miracles
If you promise to be good, try to be nice
God will take good care of you
Just do as I say, dont do as I do

Im counting my blessings,
Ive found true happiness
Cos Im getting richer, day by day
You can find me in the phone book,
Just call my toll free number
You can do it anyway you want
Just do it right away

Therell be no doubt in your mind
Youll believe everything Im saying
If you wanna get closer to him
Get on your knees and start paying

Cos jesus he knows me
And he knows Im right
Ive been talking to jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows Im right
Well hes been telling me
Everythings gonna be alright, alright

Jesus he knows me
Jesus he knows me, you know..."



E finalmente gosto da maioria das letras dos Xutos e Pontapés, têm sempre uma mensagem...


Não Sou o Único

"Pensas que eu sou um caso isolado

Não sou o único a olhar o céu

A ver os sonhos partirem

À espera que algo aconteça

A despejar a minha raiva

A viver as emoções

A desejar o que não tive

Agarrado ás tentações



E quando as nuvens partirem

O céu azul brilhará

E quando as trevas abrirem

Vais ver, o sol brilhará

Vais ver, o sol brilhará



Não, não sou o único

Não, sou o único a olhar o céu

Não, não sou o único

Não, sou o único a olhar o céu



Pensas que eu sou um caso isolado

Não sou o único a olhar o céu

A ouvir os conselhos dos outros

E sempre a cair nos buracos

A desejar o que não tive

Agarrado ao que não tenho

Não, não sou o único

Não sou o único a olhar o céu



E quando as nuvens partirem

O céu azul ficará

E quando as trevas abrirem

Vais ver, o sol brilhará

Vais ver, o sol brilhará"

"Descobri" a Joni Mitchell recentemente e estou verdadeiramente apaixonada pelas suas músicas e letras.


Amelia

I was driving across the burning desert
When I spotted six jet planes
Leaving six white vapor trails across the bleak terrain
It was the hexagram of the heavens
it was the strings of my guitar
Amelia it was just a false alarm

The drone of flying engines
Is a song so wild and blue
It scrambles time and seasons if it gets thru to you
Then your life becomes a travelogue
Of picture post card charms
Amelia it was just a false alarm

People will tell you where they've gone
They'll tell you where to go
But till you get there yourself you never really know
Where some have found their paradise
Other's just come to harm
Oh, Amelia it was just a false alarm

I wish that he was here tonight
It's so hard to obey
His sad request of me to kindly stay away
So this is how I hide the hurt
As the road leads cursed and charmed
I tell Amelia it was just a false alarm

A ghost of aviation
She was swallowed by the sky
Or by the sea like me she had a dream to fly
Like Icarus ascending
On beautiful foolish arms
Amelia it was just a false alarm

Maybe I've never really loved
I guess that is the truth
I've spent my whole life in clouds at icy altitude

And looking down on everything
I crashed into his arms
Amelia it was just a false alarm

I pulled into the Cactus Tree Motel
To shower off the dust
And I slept on the strange pillows of my wanderlust
I dreamed of 747s
Over geometric farms
Dreams Amelia - dreams and false alarms



Both Sides, Now

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I've looked at clouds from both sides now


From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As ev'ry fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

But now it's just another show
You leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all


Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
I've looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all




A Case Of You

Just before our love got lost you said
"I am as constant as a northern star"
And I said "Constantly in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar"

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
With your face sketched on it twice
Oh you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet

Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
oh I would still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid

I remember that time you told me you said
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine
'Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time
Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet


Oh I could drink a case of you darling
And I would still be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said
"Go to him, stay with him if you can
But be prepared to bleed"

Oh but you are in my blood
You're my holy wine
You're so bitter, bitter and so sweet

Oh, I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I would still be on my feet



For Free

I slept last night in a good hotel
I went shopping today for jewels
The wind rushed around in the dirty town
And the children let out from the schools
I was standing on a noisy corner
Waiting for the walking green
Across the street he stood
And he played real good
On his clarinet for free

Now me I play for fortunes
And those velvet curtain calls
I've got a black limousine
And two gentlemen
Escorting me to the halls
And I play if you have the money
Or if you're a friend to me
But the one man band
By the quick lunch stand
He was playing real good for free

Nobody stopped to hear him
Though he played so sweet and high
They knew he had never
Been on their T.V.
So they passed his music by
I meant to go over and ask for a song
Maybe put on a harmony
I heard his refrain
As the signal changed
He was playing real good for free



If I Had A Heart

Holy war
Genocide
Suicide
Hate and cruelty...
How can this be holy?
If I had a heart I'd cry.

These ancient tales...
The good go to heaven
And the wicked ones burn in hell...
Ring the funeral bells!
If I had a heart I'd cry.


There's just too many people now
Too little land
Much too much desire
You feel so feeble now
It's so out of hand
Big bombs and barbed wire
We've set our lovely sky
Our lovely sky
On fire!

There's just too many people now
And too little land
Too much rage and desire
It makes you feel so feeble now
It's so out of hand-
Big bombs and barbed wire...
Can't you see
Our destiny?
We are making this Earth
Our funeral pyre!

Holy Earth
How can we heal you?
We cover you like a blight...
Strange birds of appetite...
If I had a heart I'd cry.
If I had a heart I'd cry.
If I had a heart I'd cry.

Conheces The Fiddle and the Drum, então?

And so once again
My dear Johnny my dear friend
And so once again you are fightin' us all
And when I ask you why
You raise your sticks and cry, and I fall
Oh, my friend
How did you come
To trade the fiddle for the drum

You say I have turned
Like the enemies you've earned
But I can remember
All the good things you are
And so I ask you please
Can I help you find the peace and the star
Oh, my friend
What time is this
To trade the handshake for the fist

And so once again
Oh, America my friend
And so once again
You are fighting us all
And when we ask you why
You raise your sticks and cry and we fall
Oh, my friend
How did you come
To trade the fiddle for the drum

You say we have turned
Like the enemies you've earned
But we can remember
All the good things you are
And so we ask you please
Can we help you find the peace and the star
Oh my friend
We have all come
To fear the beating of your drum

Uma letra que eu gosto especialmente é esta da Mafalda Veiga

Pedras e Flores

Hoje a vida passa como um barco
Ilha de náufragos esquecida no mar
E o tempo é nada haver sentido tudo
O que por nada ser nos faz mudar
Hoje o mundo é o revés de um sonho
Que um sono mais profundo fez esquecer
Para quê querer das coisas a razão
Se quase nada tem razão de ser
O luar traz silêncios e disparos
E carícias fugazes e horrores
E morre-se num canto de um poema
Por isso e outras coisa dão-se flores
Bebe-se vinho e dorme-se ao relento
E liberta-se o grito que vier
Pra se ouvir longe e perto, e dentro
Conserva-se o silêncio, o que se puder
E alguma vez ainda se acredita
Na força da montanha céu adentro
E na canção do mar por ser bonita
E nas asas que inventa, cores ao vento
Mas hoje voam pássaros sem asas
Na terra desabrocham cores de guerra
E hoje as flores rolam pelo chão
Como se fossem pedras.




Boa para cantar em dias tristes para Portugal como hoje onde a hipocrisia perpetuou a discriminação pela orientação sexual.
