The Wall

Tonight
I look at the wall
I built for so long
And wait patiently for someone to climb
And see what’s behind
I was waiting for you.
 
Tonight
I’ve been writing on the wall
Lame excuses and thoughts
For me to distrust
Anyone who can see my flaws
The way that he does.
 
[Chorus A]
 
Are you ready to look into my eyes?
Are you daring to uncover the lies?
‘Cause life can get messy some times
If I unlock this door, are you ready for the fire?
 
Tonight
I’m staring at the wall
It’s getting so damn high
Since the last time it fell down
When you walked it through.
 
Tonight
The pictures on the wall
Are shadows and ghosts
The secrets and songs
Are getting too old.
 
[Chorus B]
 
Are you ready to look into my eyes?
Are you daring to uncover the lies?
‘Cause life can get messy some times
If I unlock this door, are you willing to come by?
 
Sometimes
We all build a wall
To protect us from the world
So comfortable, so numb
Is this life after all?
 
Tonight
I’m tearing down the wall
It’s getting lonely inside this core
If I kiss you, would you correspond?
Am I human after all?
 
[Chorus C]
 
Are you ready for me to look into your eyes?
Are you daring to share our lies?
Life can get pretty some times
For you, I put my heart on fire.
 
Tonight
I’m writing a love song
I’ll singing it at the top of the wall
If you can hear me
Would you come along?

James Fugot

He walks in the streets of New York
Oh God that man is lost
He has fifth avenue tattooed on his feet
Oh God that man is free
He is a traitor
He is a thief
but he knows how to keep his heart in peace
He is the eye of the storm
He calls himself James Fugot.
 
[Chorus A]
 
Oh run away, get away
before they all forget your name
James Fugot like Mida’s touch
he turns his sins into gold
like the Statue of Liberty
He will stand still for eternity
even if soon he will be gone gone
He’ll be the cause of your burns
 
He writes songs in Greenwich Valley
he is always alone, need nobody
He looks like a star, he’s sad, he’s happy
He is everything you want if you get lucky
He is a lover
but he murders love
the moment he erased the name he forgot
try and get him undercover
then he’ll kiss you until your lips get sober.
 
[Chorus A]
 
Oh run away, get away
before they all forget your name
James Fugot like Mida’s touch
he turns his sins into gold
like the Statue of Liberty
He will stand still for eternity
even if soon he will be gone gone
He’ll be the cause of your burns.
 
[Bridge]
 
Like and old piano and a forgotten song
he can only be heard at the edge of the world
he gets mysterious if you ask too much
he’ll drink a scotch for the man he loved
Please think of him as you hear these words
then you just can call me… James Fugot
 
[Chorus B]
 
Oh run away, get away
before they all forget my name
James Fugot like Mida’s touch
I turn your sins into gold
like the Statue of Liberty
I will stand still for eternity
even if soon I will be gone gone
Let me be the cause of your burns.

Goodbye New York

I’ll pack a bit later
let me enjoy leaves as they fall
as Norah cries on the radio
while she sings a sad song
Manhattan will be waiting for me, I know
and this letters will remain on the floor
autumn will be here again, I know
but you… you won’t.
 
[Chorus A]
 
So goodbye New York
bye bye my love
old streets and new hopes
maybe one day you will know
that I miss you so
specially in the nights of snow
when you’re laying next to someone.
 
My tea’s getting colder
maybe I left a window open
so the wind will be my company
since the cat ran away last week
stories will be written, I know
and my name will be in some corridor
I’ll think of you in each airport
but you… you won’t think of me anymore.
 
[Chorus A]
 
So goodbye New York
bye bye my love
old streets and new hopes
maybe one day you will know
that I miss you so
specially in the nights of snow
when you’re laying next to someone.
 
[Chorus B]
 
So goodbye New York
bye bye to the ones I know
save a hug for my return
maybe we will laugh at this song
so everyone can actually know
that I still miss you so
specially in the nights of snow
even when I’m laying next to someone.

The Other Man

I’m scared I must admit
my body shakes
my mind is blurry
my eyes can say the honest truth
and I’m not even ready
not over you.
 
I’m scared I must admit
my hands revolving
my heart is jumping
don’t know what to do or what to say
just by seeing you there
my world will fade.
 
[Chorus A]
 
And I’m not trying to impress you
or to even say that I’m ok
I’m just trying to make it simple
a white flag to start again
as friends or strangers
our story will remain
without the sight of others
in the deepest of ourselves.
 
I’m afraid to even touch you
you were once my shelter
my secret threat
now that you’re just too far away
I’m a lonely walker
you’re an empty cave.
 
I’m afraid of my decisions
the steps I took went far away
regret is not an issue
that doesn’t mean I choose the best
mistakes may be my common race
losing or winning, don’t know it yet.
 
[Chorus B]
 
And I’m not trying to forgive you
or to even show that I’m ok
I’m just trying not to feel guilty
a white flag to quit the game
as foes or strangers
our story will hurt again
if we insist to play the cover
of that song kept in our shells.
 
[Bridge]
 
Oh and I thought you were going to be there
waiting for me, waiting just to say
goodbye once and for all
to sign the final chapter and burn the book
but no, you did not came
so I guess this is it
nice to meet you and walk away.
 
[Chorus C]
 
And I’m not trying to believe you
or to even think that you’re ok
I’m just trying to clean this mess
a crime scene where love is dead
as victims or offenders
our treachery will be paid
you as the coward who ran
me as the other man.

Tantra

Take my hand
feel the warm
can you hear the blood
running through my mind
drowning all my thoughts
hunger of desire

Oh take my hand
I don’t even know you
I don’t care about your name
just give me what I told you
help me to forget
what night has taught me
amnesia for the best

‘Cause when the crowd is jumping
nobody sees my face
when the sun is rising slowly
and I have lost my sense
perhaps I’m going under
or just getting insane

Take my hand
while the lights are blinding us
use our bodies to guide the way
the sweat and the salt, they judge us
but at the end everyone is the same
slaves of lust and fire

Oh take my past
and throw it away
you don’t need to know my story
we are here just to slay
this dance floor and your bed
every corner, every threat

‘Cause when the crowd is jumping
nobody sees my face
when the sun is rising slowly
and I have lost my sense
perhaps I’m going under
or just getting insane

‘Cause when the crowd is exploding
you and I have raised hell
our sins are full of glory
so don’t expect me to regret
perhaps I’m going under
or just fully insane

ohhh the night ain’t good
ohhh the night ain’t bad
this darkness is spreading
my intentions of despair
our bodies our salvation
the sweat takes all away
take my hand and my shadow
destroy my innocence

‘Cause when the crowd is jumping
nobody sees my face
when the sun is rising slowly
and I have lost my sense
perhaps I’m going under
or just getting insane
if love is a crime
I declare myself unfair
just want you for an hour
or maybe a little less

ohhh the night ain’t good
ohhh the night ain’t bad

“Tantra Cross” by Unknown artist.

Roses

We were in the middle of the road
watching at each other throw the past forever
your eyes crossed into mine
surrounded by city lights
I guess I fell in love.
 
We tried to build our castles in the sand
we thought honesty was all we had
I used to love watching you sleep
in the middle of our lies.
 
[Chorus]
 
‘Cause we were roses
so temporary high
we were closer
we saw into each others eyes
we had our garden
now it’s over
every thorn caused so much trouble
when we were roses
into each others hands.
 
(Oh oh ohhhhh, oh oh ohhhh)
 
We were partners in crime
when we kidnapped forbidden time
We had our secrets,
something to hide.
 
We knew our love was poison
with every kiss we made it better
thought it was enough to keep it together
we messed up destiny
into this lovers felony.
 
[Chorus]
 
‘Cause we were roses
so temporary high
we were closer
we saw into each others eyes
we had our garden
now it’s over
every thorn caused so much trouble
when we were roses
into each others hands.
 
[Bridge]
 
Somehow I knew it from the start
this love was never gonna last
like a one-day flower
we were supposed to die.
 
‘Cause we were roses
so temporary high
we were roses
used to believe there was a chance
but we were roses
we were meant to fade apart.
 
‘Cause we were roses
so temporary high
we were closer
we saw into each others withered eyes
we had our garden
now it’s over
every thorn caused so much trouble
when we were roses
into each others hands.
