Twilight

Humans are weird
They waste time on trifles
And they forget that life is made of simple things
Sometimes, the hardest to learn is the least complicated.

Time after time

To grow old means to be rid of anxieties about the past.

Stefan Zweig

The mind that is wise mourns less for what age takes away; than what it leaves behind.

William Wordsworth

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.

Mother Theresa

Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting.

Secret place

Reprise

Take me there
Whenever I’m sad
Leave me alone
If my pain is too heavy
And then, in my bank
I’ll just listen to the wind
That blows my hair
The sea has the power
To heal my wounds
The fresh grass
Gives me ground
Don’t worry if I’m lost
One day, I will be found.

Epilogue

Reprise

Save your words
Unless you mean it
If we think too much of the end
We’ll never start
Step by step, we’ll get there
Where?
I have no idea!
Life is an endless path
Take your time
You might need it
And when you’re ready
You know I’ll be here
Together, we’ll get it through
And what if is not over?
Relax, it just means it’s not the finale yet.

We are free

We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.

William Faulkner

We shall raise our voices
And make our own choices
Release your fears
It’s time to condemn the fake leaders
Unwrap your mind
Forget the difference between wrong and right
Trust yourself
Keep all the others in a distant shelf
You won’t learn anything from them
They are not books
And they judge you by your looks
Avoid the dumb who wish to turn you into their slaves
Fell free. Today, tomorrow, always!

Back then

If I could turn back time
I would do exactly the same my friend
Great expectations around the corner
We accepted everything, except the orders
Release your fears
It’s time to wipe your tears
We are bonded…forever
And I know that life can only be better
Trust and hope walk side by side
Feeling free and staying alive
Is the best way to kill time
Dreams can be real sometimes.

Never give up

Sometimes missions can’t be accomplished at the first time
As a consequence, we get frustrated
Suddenly, the sky is covered by thick grey clouds
Even the sun has abandoned us
But giving up is never an option
Frustrations are great opportunities to start all over again
Put yourself together, close your eyes and take a deep breath
You can do it!
Just be patient
Time is the best healer.

Room with a view

Reprise

From my window I see you
Glazed eyes, deep blue
From my window I see us
On the line, waiting for the bus
Do you remember
That sweet december?
Christmas fuss, sparkling lights
And a smooth kiss at midnight
From my window I see the mountains
I think loud of our great expectations
From my window I see a tiny boat
One day, I’ll take you away from the coast
From my window I see the ocean
Life is always in motion
From my window I see the whole universe
And I just listen to Mother Earth.

carpe diem

Reprise

Remember when we were young, wild and free?
Back then, simple pleasures filled us with joy
Good old times!
Where did our dreams go?
We should not worry about tomorrow
Because we don’t know what it might bring us
If troubles will come we take care of them later
Instead, put a smile on your face
Enjoy every moment as it was the last one
We are lucky enough to be alive
What if things go wrong?
We’ll fall and we might even be hurt
Yet, we’ll be on our two feet again.

Tea for four

Reprise

Photo : Filipa Moreira da Cruz

Deep blue sky
Mysterious sea
Thick sand
Invigorating breeze
My hair is a mess
And so is my life
Upside down
Empty chairs
Empty heart
I see my town
From the other side
I’m an outsider
Until when?
If only I knew…
Meanwhile, take a seat
The water is boiling
Life is always better
After a cup of tea.
