Freedom

Reprise

I follow the path alone
Listening to the silence
Whispering my dreams
To the nature around me
The sea clears my mind
The fresh grass gives me hope
On a future as bright as the sun
And beautiful like the blue sky
For the fist time, I am free again.

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.

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!

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.

Time

Reprise

The first step is the hardest to take
After that, it’s a piece of cake
Don’t move too fast
Take a deep breath
If you rush
You’ll fall apart
Good things take time
There’s a time to hear
A time to speak
A time to wait
A time to heal
A time to greet
And a time to say goodbye.

My life is an eternal maze
My eyes are constantly glazed
Astonishment commands my steps
I don’t care about the rest
I’m a better person than I used to be
Please, trust me
A big house and a fancy car
Will never take you far
Our love, on the contrary
Is everything but ordinary
I’m waiting for your sign
Avoiding to cross the line
Patience is my best friend
I keep the faith until the end.

On my way to nowhere

Reprise

Where are you going?
Truth be told
I don’t have a clue
The only thing I am sure
Is that I miss you
So I keep walking
As long as my feet
Are not sore
As long as my back
Can take me as a whole

You may cross all the rivers
And all the seas
Having the stars as guides
You may climb
The highest mountains
Erasing borders
Even run or fly
At the end, we both know
There are certain things
You cannot defy

I left this world
And in peace I rest
It’s my game over
Don’t you worry
My dear friend
You should rather
Enjoy your life
Until the end
I shall wait
And so will paradise.

Filipa Moreira da Cruz

Struggling

Don’t look back
Run
Walk away
Take care of your body
Save your soul
You can only count on you
All the others have gone
Trust your instinct
Follow your dreams
And enjoy every moment
Until the last drop.

Through the path

Reprise

Nobody said it was easy
But I never thought it would be so hard
Do not judge me before knowing my story
Because appearances can mislead you
I look strong, I know
Take a closer glimpse and you’ll see how fragile I am
Keep the faith, mother Earth protects you
Release yourself from your demons and ghosts
I will always be by your side
No matter what life may bring
Don’t listen to your anger
Stay focus on your path
Again and again.

Orange dreams

Reprise

I’ve traveled all over the world
I’ve crossed rivers and seas
I’ve climbed high mountains
I’ve slept under the starry sky
I’ve painted bridges and erased walls
I’ve opened windows and doors
I’ve fallen several times
But I’ve never lost the track.
