Purple or violet?

The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.

Tennessee Williams

Don’t order any black things. (…) Wear violet and purple.

George Bernard Shaw

I don’t have a purple problem, I have a purple passion!

Jackie Harmon Sweeney

Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

La vie en rose

Reprise

The world is a rose, smell it, and pass it to your friends.

Persian proverb

If I had a rose for every time I thought of you, I’d be picking roses for a lifetime.

Rosso

Reprise

Je fonce!
Je passe au feu rouge
Je suis rouge de honte
Ou bien de colère?
Rouge comme une tomate
Je vois rouge
Et je suis surement sur la liste rouge
Franchir la ligne rouge?
Toujours!

Red disaster

When I haven’t any blue I use red.

Pablo Picasso

Now and then it is a joy to have one’s table red with wine and roses.

Oscar Wilde

An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight… the truly wise person is colorblind.

Black is back?

Reprise

The star shines in the dark sky
Flawless
The tea sleeps in the cup
Stemless
The elephant wanders in the savannah
Dryness
The tree waves
Smoothly
The train whistles
Twice.

Pintado de azul

Reprise

Azul intenso, profundo…efémero?
Néctar sublime e adúltero
Espelho grande, imenso, infinito
Que cabe no bolso para estar sempre comigo
Um mar de oportunidades
Um oceano de saudades
Um rio de emoções
Um riacho de sensações
Azul de Norte a Sul, de Este a Oeste
Percorreste o mundo, mas regressaste
Devolveste-me o que perdi
Trouxeste o que te implorei
Do meu universo és rei
E não quero viver sem ti.

Violet dreams

Reprise

Violet dreams
Floating in a child’s head
Vanished away
By the afternoon wind
Hope has left us
Empty remain our hearts
Love is no longer au rendez-vous
We fall apart
Set me free
Make a memory out of it
Things will get better
One day
I still believe
In my childhood violet dreams.

Verde como te quero!

Reprise

Verde água
Verde azeitona
Verde tropa
Verde floresta
Verde mar
Verde garrafa
Verde natureza
Verde pomar
Verde esperança
Verde é vida
Equilíbrio e perseverança.

Pink versus purple

Reprise

Pink flowers
Purple rain
Pink powers
Purple strain
Pink walls
Purple doors
Pink recalls
Purple roars
Pink panther
Purple effort
Pink manner
Purple record
Pink balance
Purple tears
Pink dance
Purple fears
Pink strive
Purple friend
Pink paradise
Purple end.

Du soleil à Saint-Tropez

Reprise

Le soleil brille dans le ciel bleu
Aujourd’hui, je fais ce que je veux!
Des paillettes et des couleurs
Des sourires et des fleurs
Ici, pas de prise de tête
Chaque jour est une fête!
