Paloma

Sweet paloma
Has lost her wings
And her own heart is into pieces
The sky is no longer blue
Even the wind has gone away
Broken dreams
The whole world is against her
But she keeps struggling
Every day
Silence is a strength
Joy can be found through darkness
No time for regrets
No space for sadness
Fly paloma
One day you will be high.

Sweet dreams

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see, but it is impossible. Humans hide their secrets too well….

René Magritte

If the dream is a translation of waking life, waking life is also a translation of the dream.

Life does not come with instructions on how to live, but it does come with trees, sunsets, smiles and laughter, so enjoy your day.

There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.

Golden sand

Take me to the place where the sun never sleeps
Forget everything, except your dreams
Let’s sail away. Shall we?
I want to feel the golden sand under my bare feet

We will live in the summerland
Trust me and hold my hand
You won’t need any luggage
Your belongings are just a mirage

Pick up the shells on your path
Release your soul from the past
A new day is waiting for you
Make a wish, it will come true.

Dreams

Reprise

Take me to the theory land
Because in theory
Everything will to be all right

Don’t wake me up
Not today nor tomorrow
Let me live in the fairytale for a while

I’m not ready for your world yet
I need more time to heal my soul
Wish me good luck

You know where to find me
Between one thing and another
I’ll be living my dreams.

Love today!

Reprise

Purple, orange, green and blue
I am all the colours whenever with you
A wide field of beautiful daisies
Our days are overwhelming and crazy
A stunning poppy covered in red velvet
The landcsape is almost psychedelic
Forget yesterday and don’t worry about tomorrow
Life is more than pain and sorrow
Follow your dreams, they know the way
You may only be sure of today.

Volare!

Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.

Langston Hughes

Close your eyes
Open your wings and fly
Imagine you’re free
Trust me
You’re about to live
Something special and unique
Dreams know no boundaries
Life is also made of sweet memories.
