“Have you found your life distasteful?
My life did, and does, smack sweet.
Was your youth of pleasure wasteful?
Mine I saved and hold complete.
Do your joys with age diminish?
When mine fail me, I’ll complain.
Must in death your daylight finish?
My sun sets to rise again.”

Hurt
Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were, but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today, ooh ooh

I would hold you in my arms
I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you’ve done
Forgive all your mistakes
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do
To hear your voice again
Sometimes I wanna call you
But I know you won’t be there

Ooh, I’m sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn’t do
And I’ve hurt myself by hurting you

Some days I feel broke inside, but I wouldn’t admit
Sometimes I just wanna hide, cuz it’s you I miss
And it’s so hard to say goodbye when comes to this, ooh yeah

Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do
To have just one more chance
To look into your eyes
And see you are looking back

Ooh, I’m sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn’t do
And I’ve hurt myself, ooh ooh

If I had just one more day
I would tell you how much that I missed you since you’ve been away
Ooh ooh, It’s dangerous
It’s so out of line to try and turn back time

I’m sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn’t do
And I’ve hurt myself… By hurting you

Would this do to make it all right
While sleep has taken you where I’m out of sight

I’ll make my getaway
Time on my own
Search for a better way
To find my way home to your smile

Wasting days and days on this fight
Always down, and up half the night
Hopeless to reminisce through the dark hours
We’ll only sacrifice what time will allow us
You’re sighing…

All alone though you’re right here
Now it’s time to go from your sad stare

Make my getaway
Time on my own
Leaving’s a better way
To find my way home to your smile

With every breath you take, you’re dying
With every step we take we’re falling apart
We only had one chance
We pray
Let’s take this chance right now, and scream!

You only live one life
For a very short time
So make every second divine
Go!
Live life hard
Live life hard
Are you still breath?

With your heart that’s beating inside
That keeps us alive
And for the very first time we’re pushing aside
So surrender everything that you see in my eyes
Except for the one thing on my mind
That I am alive
For the very first time!

Show Me How To Live

And with the early dawns
Moving right along
I couldn’t buy an eye full of sleep
And in the aching night, under satellites
I was not received
Built with stolen parts
A telephone in my heart
Someone get me a priest
To put my mind to bed
This ringing in my head
Is this a cure or is this a disease?

Nail in my hand
From my Creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live

And in the after birth
On the quiet Earth
Let the stains remind you
You thought you made a man
You better think again
Before my role defines you

And in your waiting hands
I will land
And roll out of my skin
And in your finals hours I will stand
Ready to begin…

“Faz de mim
tua poesia,
teu violão,
teu riso largo.
Faz de nós,
a sós,
uma canção
do coração.”
