Strawberries field

We cry in silence
We lost our guidance
We need sweetness
And a hint of happiness
The world has gone crazy
And human beings are too lazy
To keep fighting for their rights
Violence exploses like dynamite
We should pray instead
For those who are already dead
We need to have faith and hope
And trust the Almighty above
Everything happens for a reason
And bad things won’t last the whole season
So, let’s stay together
Today, tomorrow, forever!

Puzzled

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.

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.

Dreaming my dreams

Reprise

Follow me
I’ll be your guide
Trust me
I won’t tell you a lie
Open your heart
I’m ready to live our love
Join me
Be my date, I’ll be your dove
You can count on me
I will never disappoint you
Of that you may be sure!
As the grass is green and the ocean is blue
Take my hand
Let’s live our dreams
We will be just one
As the light that beams.

Let it slide
Let it burn
Let it hide
Let it turn
Let it snail
Let it run
Let it fail
Let it shine
Let it fly away
Let it rhyme
Let it stray
Let it wonder
Let it last
Let it plunder
Let it crash
Let it go
Let it crush
Let it grow
Let it burst
Let it fall
Let it vanish
Let it call
Let it banish
Let it cry
Let it crawl
Let it die
Let it be all.

Find your own way!

Many are stubborn in pursuit of the path they have chosen, few in pursuit of the goal.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Adversity is the first path to truth.

Lord Byron

The straight line, a respectable optical illusion which ruins many a man.

Victor Hugo

Travelers, there is no path, paths are made by walking.

Antonio Machado

Linger

Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again.

André Gide

One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.

Grazie Paul Laurent!

Le rôle d’un ami, c’est de se trouver à votre côté quand vous êtes dans l’erreur puisque tout le monde sera à côté de vous quand vous aurez raison.

Mark Twain

A la fin, nous nous souviendrons non pas des mots de nos ennemis, mais des silences de nos amis.

Martin Luther King

Ce mot troublé n’est jamais envahissant
Ton silence n’est pas éxasperant
O teu sorriso ilumina o dia mais cinzento
E mostra o que melhor levo dentro
Tu cariño me llena de confianza
Y transforma mi miedo en esperanza
You picture the world
And take it as a whole
Sei più di un amico o di un fratello
Sei unico e bello.

A walk in the park

Sometimes life sucks
And everything goes wrong
Without any reason
No matter what you do
No matter how far you go
No matter how hard you try
No matter how high you aim
No matter how much you give
It’s never good enough
Suddenly you realise
All you need is a walk in the park.
