Cibelle (pronounced: see-BELL-ee) is a musical force of nature. On this, her debut album, Cibelle for Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees, not only did she sing everything, the Brazilian also wrote or co-wrote virtually the entire disc, in addition to co-producing the record with her startlingly talented young countryman, Apollo 9. It's everything you'd expect from someone whose first appearance on recording was with the late, gifted Suba. Cibelle goes anywhere the Brazilian chanteuse's imagination takes her, exploring sensual bossa nova, downtempo electronica, samba, jazz, and beyond. The mixing, by Chris Harrison and Pete Norris, the men behind Morcheeba's sound, brings out her stunning vision. While Cibelle is undoubtedly a Brazilian album, it is just as much a jazz album. And an electronic album. And a spiritual album. And a humorous album in places too. Above all though, it's a natural album. The key sound-sculptor on the project is Sao Paulo switch-doctor Apollo 9, but Cibelle also peppered the project with a host of venerable musicians and guest vocalists, from percussionist Joao Parahyba of Trio Mocoto, Cuban pianist Pepe Cisneros, and guitarist and composer Ari Moraes to Ross Godfrey of Morcheeba, trombone player Bocato, and percussionist Eder Rocha of Mestre Ambrosio. She's also joined by bossa nova veteran vocalist Johnny Alf, rapper Xis, guitarist and bassist Richard Harrison, French electronic producer David Walters of Zimpala and bass players Serginho Carvalho and Robinho. Cibelle is a natural culmination for someone who admits she was always the "full-on arty kind." At six Cibelle insisted that her mother send her to music school, where she began attending guitar class. She took piano lessons until she was twelve, and a couple of years later "got into steady acting and singing at lunch break - everything was an excuse to sing. I joined Ford Models, but I didn't think much of it." That led to television commercials, but Cibelle, the trained actress, performed "mostly doing physical comedy, a character. I did some goofy stuff on MTV Brazil, the promo stuff - I even had a pie in the face once! And I loved it."

Singing remained a vital part of her life, but it was simply something she did for fun until a respected musician heard her one day and told her she was a singer. "That was the first time I took it seriously." Cibelle had found her passion. She'd go from club to club, jam session to jam session, singing a few songs in each. But her life wouldn't really change until she met Suba, the Yugoslavian producer and keyboard player with a vision of a new Brazilian sound. "I went to a jam session one night and I was smoking my Indian cigarettes, when this tall guy, dressed in black, not looking Brazilian at all, lit my smoke with his Zippo. That was Suba. Later I heard this crazy samba with really cool synth, that was weird and exactly what I was looking for, and it was him. A friend pulled me onstage to sing. At the end Suba said he'd been looking for a singer and would I come to his home studio the next day?" Cibelle sang on three tracks on Suba's groundbreaking album, Sao Paulo Confessions. That CD is one of most seminal and revered albums to come from the Brazilian electronic scene. Its erudite blend of traditional sounds and technological prowess was ahead of its time. Cibelle was the main vocalist on the album, enhancing tracks like the wonderful "Sereia," "Tantos Desejos" and "Felicidade," the latter of which placed the lyrics to Tom Jobim's classic bossa nova tune to a truly unique soundscape. After Suba's untimely death in 1999, Cibelle appeared on Suba Tributo, before spreading her wings and guesting with Juryman on Escape to Where, then offering her sultry voice to up-and-coming singer/songwriter/guitarist Celso Fonseca for his Natural album, (also on Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees Records). The stage was set for Cibelle to make her own record working with Brazilian electronica hero Apollo 9 and she was more than ready. She'd started writing long before she met Suba, "and some of those lyrics are on the album. Some I wrote the week they were recorded - and the same with the melodies. The whole process was really organic."

She also made sure the sessions were fun and different, "even the way we made samples. I'd close my eyes, put the needle on the record and say, 'Go Apollo, record!'" The jazzy, moody "Waiting" came about after she went to the supermarket "and recorded the cash register and the refrigerator. Next day I went to the studio, and Apollo asked, 'What have you got?' I said, 'Well, I've got this cash register and this fridge and I want to make a track from them.' So he created the bass line, and we started jamming on top. We started adding stuff to it. We both love mellotrons, and Apollo collects old keyboards. My vocal on the record is the original demo." She never set limits on herself. "When you're building a track, it's like picking ice creams, trying everything. That's how Suba worked, and that's how I learned to work. It's chaotic, but nice. Everything I listen to and like, I embrace it, and let it come out in my music. I want it to be there. The music happens by itself. I have some initial ideas." In fact, she has more than that; Cibelle was involved with writing nearly every track on Cibelle. The sole exception was Antonio Carlos Jobim's languid bossa nova, "Inutil Paisagem," subtly rearranged as a duet with bossa veteran Johnny Alf over mellotron, with Cibelle herself providing "naive scratching." The song was a natural choice for her, because "I love it. That was all I needed. I was translating the lyric for a friend, realized how much I loved it, and decided to record it." Her album is playful, sensual, familiar but unusual; the perfect distillation of her personality. It's organic and chameleonic, as only a Cibelle album can be, moving mellifluously through a variety of music styles. After all, this is a young woman who takes inspiration from Nina Simone, Tom Jobim, Bjork, 4hero, Ella Fitzgerald and Matmos. Although she's recently begun deejaying ("A little bit. It's more disc selecting. I can't really scratch."), she's eager to hit the road with a band. "I can't wait to start gigging. I need musicians around me, I need to be doing music and singing or at least shaking a shaker. I need live music."

Hate

I hate you so bad when I love you
'Cause I know you love me too but we gotta leave
I love you so much when you're near
Yet I hate you so bad when you make love at me

I hate you so bad when you're "nule"
'Cause I know you wanna say things but you never do
I love you so much when you're inside me
Yet I hate you so bad when your eyes I can't see

I love you so much
When I hate you so bad
'Cause I love you so much when I think I am sad
I love you so much
When I hate you so bad
'Cause I love you so much when I think I am sad

I hate you so bad when I love you
'Cause I know you love me too but we gotta leave
I love you so much when you're near
Yet I hate you so bad when you make love at me

I hate you so bad when you're "nule"
'Cause I know you wanna say things but you never do
I love you so much when you're inside me
Yet I hate you so bad when your eyes I can't see

Aah...

I love you so much
When I hate you bad
'Cause I love you so much when I think I am sad
I love you so much
When I hate you bad
'Cause I love you so much when I think I am sad

Uuuuuuuh...

I hate you so bad when I love you
'Cause I know you love me too but we gotta leave
I love you so much when you're near
Yet I hate you so bad when you make love at me

Aaah...

I hate you so bad when you're "nule"
'Cause I know you wanna say things but you never do
I love you so much when you're inside me
Yet I hate you so bad when your eyes I can't see

Don't know why I love you so much
'Cause I hate you so bad
When I think I love you in fact
Then I don't think that I really do
I don't know if I really do or do I
Oh my god I think I think
I love you
I do
I hate you
Or I love you...
Aaah...

Waiting

Sitting, staring
At my cigarette ash
Hmm...

Waiting hours
Smoke climbs to the stars
Thinking 'bout life

Thinking 'bout life
When am I gonna see
How is it
Going to be after I fly away, fly away...
Hmm...

Sitting, staring
At a cup of tea
Wandering, sweet time
My life is like the sea

Sitting, staring
At my cigarette ash

Waiting hours
Smoke climbs to stars

Thinking 'bout life
When am I gonna see
How is it
Going to be after I fly away
Hmm...

Sitting, staring
At a cup of tea
Wandering, sweet times
Life is like the sea
Life is like the sea
Life is like the sea

Tic toc tic toc
Tic toc, tic toc
What's goin' on
Tic toc tic toc
Should I hope for more
Tic toc, tic toc

Sitting, staring
At my cigarette ash
Hmm...

Waiting hours
Smoke climbs to the stars
Hmm...

Thinking 'bout life
When am I gonna see (Parapa...)
Or is it going to be
After I fly away
Parapa...

Tic tac tic tac
Flirting with time
Flirting with time

Waiting hours
Smoke climbs to the stars

Parapa...

No Prego

Se pegar você não pega
E no prego você não dá
No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não

Se pegar você não pega
E no prego você não dá
No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não

No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não dá

Quem não tem cão, olha, caça com gato
Quem não tem gato, olha que vacilou
Cata o negão
Olhou, vem no compasso
Balançou de lado e viu se combinou
Cata o negão, olhou, vem no compasso
Pisou no sapato e quase escorregou
Quem não tem cão, olha, caça com gato
Quem não caça com gato
Só vai rir depois

Se pegar você não pega
E no prego você não dá
No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não

Se pegar você não pega
E no prego você não dá
No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não

Negão, negão, negão...

Se eu te pego dou um pega do meu jeito
Me enrosco no seu gosto por inteiro
Vou fingir que não, mas sei que eu tô querendo
Seu corpo quente, o gelo derretendo
Menina de balada quer dançar
Me enche de sorriso, mas nada de pegar
Ah, se eu te pego, vou pegar você de jeito
Língua, boca, peito
Ah, deixa eu pegar

No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não dá
No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não dá
No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não dá

Se pegar você não pega
E no prego você não dá
No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não
No pegar você não pega
E no prego você não...

In The Nail

If you catch it, you don't catch
And in the nail you don't give it
In the catch you don't catch
In the nail you don't

If you catch it, you don't catch
In the nail you don't give it
In the catch you don't catch
In the nail you don't

In the catch you don't catch
In the nail you don't give it

If you don't have a dog, look, hunt with a cat
If you don't have a cat, you're screwed
Grab the man
Take a look, come along the pace
Swing beside him and see if it matches
Grab the man, take a look, follow his pace
Step on his shoes and almost slip away
If you don't have a dog, look, hunt with a cat
If you don't have a cat
You'll just laugh at last

If you catch it, you don't catch
In the nail you don't give it
In the catch you don't catch
In the nail you don't

If you catch it, you don't catch
In the nail you don't give it
In the catch you don't catch
In the nail you don't

Man, man, man…

If I catch you, I'll do it in my way
I twist the way you like in everything
I'll pretend I don't, but I know I want
Your hot body, the ice melting
The girl who boogies at night wants to dance
She fills me with smiles, but no catch
Ah, if I catch you, I'll do it in my way
Tongue, mouth, breast
Ah, let me catch it

In the catch you don't catch
And in the nail you don't give it
In the catch you don't catch
In the nail you don't give it
In the catch you don't catch
And in the nail you don't give it

If you catch it, you don't catch
In the nail, you don't give it
In the catch you don't catch
In the nail you don't
In the catch you don't catch
And in the nail you don't

I'll Be

I'll be your dream
I'll be your best scene
I'll be your night, your sun

I'll be your world
Your water, your earth, your lover
Your birth

Let me give you a daughter
Feel life through my skin
See the world through my eyes

I'll be your dream
I'll be your best scene
I'll be your night, your sun
I'll be your sign

I'll be your world
Your water, your earth, your lover
Your birth

I'll let you live inside of me
Let me give you a daughter
Feel life through my skin
See the world through my eyes

I'll be your dream
I'll be your best scene
I'll be your night, your sun
I'll be your sign
I'll be your sign
Be your sign

I'll let you live inside of me
Let me give you a daughter
Feel life through my skin
See the world through my eyes

Train

I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land
I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land
I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land
I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land

I'm spending days, over and over and over and over again
I go through the days, over and over and over and over and over and over again
Sitting in a train

I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land
I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land
I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land
I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land

Trees pass me by and take away a piece of me
Take me away within, deep down inside of me
Deep down, deep down, inside of me

I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land
I'm sitting in a train going down there, going where, going to no-land

It rides through a thousand dreams
Je vois, je vois, je vois le monde
Je regarde tout
Dans la vitesse moi, je suis partout
Je vois
Je regarde le monde
Je regarde tout
Dans la vitesse moi, je suis partout

Deep down
Inside
Of me

Je suis partout

Deep down
Inside

Inútil Paisagem

( Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira )

Mas pra quê
Pra que tanto céu
Pra que tanto mar
Pra quê

De que serve esta onda que quebra
E o vento da tarde
De que serve a tarde
Inútil paisagem

Pode ser
Que não venhas mais
Que não volte nunca mais

De que servem as flores que nascem
Pelo caminho
Se o meu caminho
Sozinho é nada

Mas pra quê
Pra que tanto céu
Pra que tanto mar
Pra quê

De que serve esta onda que quebra
E o vento da tarde
De que serve a tarde
Inútil paisagem

It may be
You will never come
If you will never come to me

What's the use
Of my wonderful dreams
And why would they need me
Where would they lead me
Without you
To nowhere
To nowhere

Useless Landscape

( Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira )

But why
Why so much sky
Why so much sea
Why

What is this wave that breaks for
And the afternoon wind
What is the afternoon for
Useless landscape

It may be
That you will never come
That you will never come back

What are the flowers that blossom for
Through the way
If my way
Alone is nothing

But why
Why so much sky
Why so much sea
Why

What is this wave that breaks for
And the afternoon wind
What is the afternoon for
Useless landscape

Vamos ser da mesma boca
A mesma oca cheia de sal
Cheio de sol
O sal do mar e a luz
Vamos de sol pra dourar
O que há de bom
O que há de bom tom
Como se beijar a sós sem que os olhos vejam
E escancarar a cor ali
Vamos ser de um só
Um, meu bem e bem aqui
Na boca do estômago que arrepia
Que esfria
Vamos ser da boca do sol

Little Eyes

Little almonds
Little eyes
They wait for me, they grab me at the last time
Now goodbye
My arms and shallow eyes of water
My goodbye

Saudade*, my
Saudade I surrender goodbye
Saudade, my

Let's be from the same mouth
The same oca full of salt
Full of sun
The sea salt and the light
Let's by sun to gild
What is the good
What is the good tune
As if to kiss by themselves but the eyes cannot see it
And to yaw the color there
Let's be only one
One, my sweet and right here
In the bottom of stomach that shivers
That freezes
Let's be from the sun mouth

*There's no translation for this word, 'cause it only exists in Portuguese.
It's generally translated as "missing someone/something", it means so much more though.

Sugar Pie

Where are you sugar
I need you and ???
I don't matter nevermind
You won't make me better

Maybe only after nine months
After I drink your tea
I saw you there
Looking at me
Sugar, sugar, oh my sugar pie
I'm gonna use you all over my body tonight
Oh honey I think I saw the bird
Oh my god!

The Shine Of Dried Electric Leaves

Green Grass

( Tom Waits Cover )

Lay your head where my heart used to be
Hold the earth above me
Lay down in the green grass
Remember when you loved me

Come closer don't be shy
Stand beneath a rainy sky
The moon is over the rise
Think of me as a train goes by

Clear the thistles and brambles
Whistle 'Didn't He Ramble'
Now there's a bubble of me
And it's floating in thee

Stand in the shade of me
Things are now made of me
The weather vane will say
It smells like rain today

God took the stars and he tossed them
Can't tell the birds from the blossoms
You'll never be free of me
He'll make a tree from me

Don't say good bye to me
Describe the sky to me
And if the sky falls, mark my words
We'll catch mocking birds

Lay your head where my heart used to be
Hold the earth above me
Lay down in the green grass
Remember when you loved me
Remember when you loved me
Remember when you loved me

Instante De Dois

Não quero que você me coma
Não quero que você me engula
Não quero que você me acorde
Não quero que você me durma
Não quero que você me assista
Não quero que você me assuma
Não quero que você me corte
Não quero que você me inclua

Eu só quero um segundo teu
E um segundo meu
Um instante de dois
Sem mais, nem pra depois eu te dizer
Que eu te amo não
Te amo demais para ser prisão
De dois
Amor

Eu só quero um segundo teu
E um segundo meu
Um instante de dois
Sem mais, nem pra depois eu te dizer
Que eu te amo não
Te amo demais para ser prisão
De dois
Amor

Instant Of Two

I don't want you to eat me
I don't want you to swallow me
I don't want you to wake me up
I don't want you to make me asleep
I don't want you to watch me
I don't want you to take place
I don't want you to cut me out
I don't want you to include me

I just want a second of yours
And a second of mine
An instant of two
No more, even to tell you later
That I love you, no
I love you so much to be prison
Of two
Love

I just want a second of yours
And a second of mine
An instant of two
No more, even to tell you later
That I love you, no
I love you so much to be prison
Of two
Love

Phoenix

Help me, I'm falling down
Help me, I'm falling down the stair
Of my thoughts, my heart
Help, I'm slipping down
Help me

I'm slipping down, I feel my skin dry
Miles away they could be rebirth
They could become a cloud
They could be anyhow
Just a small portion of the ocean, so…

Give me something soft to cushion me
Give me some feathers so that I can stop it and glide
And glide up
Like a little birds and glide up

Like an eagle
With gigantic wings
Master the winds of change
Master the winds
Reborn again
Like a phoenix

So help me
Help me, I'm gonna fly
Help me
Help me, I'm gonna fly so high
Like a phoenix
Born again like a phoenix
Born again like a phoenix
Born again

London, London

( Caetano Veloso / Featuring Devendra Banhart )

I'm wandering round and round nowhere to go
I'm lonely in London London is lovely so
I cross the streets without fear
Everybody keeps the way clear
I know, I know no one here to say hello
I know they keep the way clear
I am lonely in London without fear
I'm wandering round and round here nowhere to go

While my eyes
Go looking for flying saucers in the sky

Oh Sunday, Monday, Autumm pass by me
And people hurry on so peacefully
A group approaches a policeman
He seems so pleased to pleace them
It's glad to live at least and I agree
He seems so pleased at least
And it's so good to live in peace and
Sunday, Monday, years and I agree
I agree

While my eyes
Go looking for flying saucers in the sky
While my eyes
Go looking for flying saucers in the sky

I choose no face to look at
Choose no way
I just happen to be here
And it's ok
Green grass, blue eyes, gray sky, God bless
Silent pain and happiness
I came around to say yes, and I say

Green grass, blue eyes, gray sky, God bless
Silent pain and happiness
I came around to say yes, and I say

But my eyes
Go looking for flying saucers in the sky

But my eyes
Go looking for flying saucers in the sky...

City People

City people down the street
Dressed in black
Dressed in black

And foreheads weep under the burning sun
Smiles rising as they come out

Foreheads weep under the pointing time
Smiles rising as they come out
The buildings for the wind as I play dream
And I play dream

City people
Dressed in black
Walking down with lonely faces
Show me how
My life embraces me under the sun, under the sun
And guide me to other places
That all the places, that all the places feel
Like memory

I'm walking randomly kicking verses that start where I see
I write and talk, checking the sky and the height of
People in a black suit
People walking down the street
They seem to notice me riding high on my dreams

City people down the streets dressed in black
And the foreheads weep under the burning sun that embraces me
Smiles rising as they come out the buildings for the wind

As I play dream
As I play dream
As I play dream
As I play dream

Minha Neguinha

Ô minha linda, minha neguinha
O meu café ficou tão sozinho
Os meninos que passam
E olhos sem ter pra quem mostrar

Ô minha linda, minha neguinha
Histórias que eu conto no vento
Eu me sento aqui pra ladainha
Eu me sento aqui avoadinha

Eu guardo no bolso
Eu guardo no bolso as histórias da Dona Sinhá
Mas me falta tu mesmo
E teu jeito de me contar
E eu guardo no bolso
Eu guardo no bolso da Dona Sinhá
Histórias que tu me traz
E as flores começam a girar

O sol se põe na pracinha
E eu me sentei cantando sozinha
O sol se põe lá na pracinha
E eu me sentei sonhando neste mar

O sol se põe lá na pracinha
E eu me sentei cantando sozinha

Eu guardo no bolso
Eu guardo no bolso as histórias da Dona Sinhá
Mas me falta tu mesmo
E teu jeito de me contar
Eu guardo no bolso
Eu guardo no bolso da Dona Sinhá
Histórias que tu me traz
E as flores começam a girar

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Oh My Little Black Girl

Oh my pretty, my little black girl
My coffee was so lonely
The boys walk by
And eyes for noone to show to

Oh my pretty, my little black girl
Stories that I tell in the wind
I'm sitting here for some litany
I'm sitting here out of my mind

I keep in my pocket
I keep in my pocket the Dona Sinhá's stories
But you're the one who's missing somehow
And your way of telling me
And I keep in the pocket
I keep in the Dona Sinhá's pocket
Stories that you bring to me
And the flowers begin to spin around

The sun set out there in the public small square
And I was sitting singing by myself
The sun set out there in the public small square
And I was sitting dreaming in this sea

The sun set out there in the public small square
And I was sitting singing by myself

I keep in my pocket
I keep in my pocket the Dona Sinhá's stories
But you're the one that's missing anyway
And your way of telling me
And I keep in the pocket
I keep in the Dona Sinhá's pocket
Stories that you bring to me
And the flowers begin to spin around

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Mad man song

He likes sipping his tea
Slowly from the tip of the tea pot
From the tip when the pot is hot
When he's not lonely...

I'm lonely not, he has it his peers
I'm dancing around hands and
He sheds some tears
When she's not there
He's quiet he is
He's quiet without she

Ce thé va t'il m'ôter ma toux
Le lourd chagrin d'un coeur fragile et fou
D'extases va t'il me rendre souple
Combler le vide, tenir le coup
Attendant une nouvelle aurore sentimentale
M'abreuve de ce liquide à la couleur pale
Mes vers vains se noient dans ma verveine
S'use mon latin à perdre haleine


Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string with reality

Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string with reality
Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string with reality

Mad man walking down her skin
The lady with the tea pot taking him within
He's going crazy with this long long
there walking down the street
With this flower shirt, his loneliness and his thirst for tea

Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string with reality

Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string with reality
Mad man walking down a string
Mad man walking down a string with reality

Por toda a minha vida

(Tom Jobim e Vinícius de Moraes)

Ah, meu bem-amado
Quero fazer-te um juramento uma canção
Eu prometo, por toda a minha vida
Ser somente tua e amar-te como nunca
Ninguém jamais amou, ninguém

Ah, meu bem-amado
Estrela pura aparecida
Eu te amo e te proclamo
O meu amor, o meu amor
Maior que tudo quanto existe
Oh, meu amor

For all of my life

(Tom Jobim e Vinícius de Moraes)

Ah, my well-loved
I want to make you an oath, a song
I promess, for all of my life
To be only yours and to love you like
Noone else ever loved you, noone

Ah, my well-loved
Pure appeared star
I love you and I declare you
My love, my love
More than everything that exists
Oh, my love

Flying High

I need to tell someone
How I am feeling
Moving my silence down
I don't feel ?no middle end?
Not a bit, just standing still
It's just this feeling course

This life

This life I am feeling

So many good times…

Seems like I'm falling
With this strangest feeling inside

This life

This life I am feeling

There's so much beauty in the simple things
There's so much light we ???
I feel like I'm flying
I am flying in my dreams
I'm flying
Good times, good times
I'm flying

So many good times…
I'm flying
So many good times…
I feel like I'm flying…
I'm flying

Arrête là, menina

Arrête là, menina
Il faut pas forcément s'attacher
Seu amor, hmmm, é tanto
Se não for, você vai se prender
E se for só paixão
Quem se perde é você
Le temps passe vite pour toi
Pra morar num amor que não há
Amor

O amor
Cada, cada, pétala de flor
O amor
Abre no seu tempo, amor
Cada, cada, pétala de flor
Abre no seu tempo, amor

Arrête là, menino
Il faut pas forcément s'engager
Se é amor, oui attends
Se não for, você vai se perder
E se for só razão
Quem se prende é você
Le temps passe vite pour toi
Pra morar num amor que não há
Amor

O amor
Cada, cada, pétala de flor
Abre no seu tempo, amor
O amor
Cada, cada, pétala de flor
O amor
Abre no seu tempo, amor
O amor
O amor
O amor
O amor

Arrête là, menina
Il faut attendre le moment parfait
Um pouco de sol, de ar
Car l'amour prend du temps
Car l'amour prend du temps

Cada, cada, pétala de flor
Abre no seu tempo, amor
O amor
Cada, cada, pétala de flor
O amor
Abre no seu tempo, amor
O amor
Cada, cada, pétala de flor
Abre no seu tempo, amor
O amor
Cada, cada, pétala de flor
Abre no seu tempo, amor

Stop now, girl
It's not always necessary to be attached
Your love, hmmm, is so much
If it's not, you'll stuck yourself in
And if it's only passion
You're the one who gets lost
The time goes fast for you
To live in a love that doesn't exist
Love

O Love
Each, each petal of flower
O Love
Opens up in its time, love
Each, each petal of flower
Opens up in its time, love

Stop now, boy
It's not always necessary to marry
If it's love, yes wait
If it's not, you'll be lost
And if it's only a reason
You're the one who gets lost
The time goes fast for you
To live in a love that doesn't exist
Love

O Love
Each, each petal of flower
Opens up in its time, love
O Love
Each, each petal of flower
O Love
Opens up in its time, love
O Love
O Love
O Love
O Love

Stop now, girl
You need to wait for the perfect moment
A little bit of sun, of air
'Cause love need time
'Cause love need time

Each, each petal of flower
Opens up in its time, love
O Love
Each, each petal of flower
O Love
Opens up in its time, love
O Love
Each, each petal of flower
Opens up in its time, love
O Love
Each, each petal of flower
Opens up in its time, love

 

Esplendor

Caía uma chuva fina
Em forma de confissão
E eu, solidão
Sou como a folha de outono
Que sem dono
Navegando chega aqui

Pra lhe dizer que o abandono
Já vai chegando ao fim
E eu, solidão
Só falta agora o teu sorriso
Um aviso
Que a luz do sol está por vir

E se você me vir vagando
Sem razão
Não vá pensar que o desengano
Mora no meu coração
Há muito tempo já se foi
A estação que vem depois
Descortina todo o esplendor

Caía uma chuva fina
Em forma de confissão
E eu, solidão
Sou como a folha de outono
Que sem dono
Navegando chega aqui

Pra lhe dizer que o abandono
Já vai chegando ao fim
E eu, solidão
Só falta agora o teu sorriso
Um aviso
Que a luz do sol está por vir

E se você me vir vagando
Sem razão
Não vá pensar que o desengano
Mora no meu coração
Há muito tempo já se foi
A estação que vem depois
Descortina todo o esplendor

Caía uma chuva fina...

Splendor

There was a pouring rain
Shaped like a confession
And me, loneliness
I'm like the Fall leaf
That without any owner
Cruising it comes here

To tell you that the desolation
Is yet to come to the end
And me, loneliness
Now your smile is the only thing that's missing
A warning
That the sunlight is about to come

And if you see me walking around
With no reason
Don't think that's the mistake
Lives inside my heart
It's gone for a long time
The station that comes afterwards
It uncurtains all the splendor

There was a pouring rain
Shaped like a confession
And me, loneliness
I'm like the Fall leaf
That when it belongs to noone
Cruising it comes here

To tell you that the desolation
Is yet to come to the end
And me, loneliness
Now your smile is the only thing that's missing
A warning
That the sunlight is to come

And if you see me walking around
With no reason
Don't think that's the mistake
Lives inside my heart
It's gone for a long time
It uncurtains all the splendor

There was a pouring rain...

Train Station

For your circle days
A little bit of sunshine
Feel drops of water and footsteps
The soul pushes against the stairs alone
With pianos in your hair
That's when I wish for you in the train station

When there's only you with your sweating
On your forehead and
I wish you a sunny day, a clearer sky
And the warmth of soft hands
Against your cheeks

In the train station
Where I disappear
You can see me here in down there
With my pen in hand
I see you where you stand and I
Wish you good days
Good days

For your circle days
A little bit of sunshine
A little bit of sunshine
Just a little bit more sunshine (sunshine)
Just a little bit of sunshine
Just a little bit more

In the train station
I'll see you there behind your eyes
When you look at your own forehead and think
Is it what if I could not know a little bit only
I wish you a sunny day
Even if outside there's rain
I wish you a sunny day
Sunny, sunny day
I wish you a sunny day
Com muito, muito sol

(Very, very sunny)
Muito sol
Muito sol

Lembra

There are times
When you wake up
And it all seems different
It was a dream
??? the sky on the ground
And all that coldness
When your heart belongs elsewhere
Under the sun, on the top of the sand
And all around you is so wet
Everything is so wet
Everything is so wet
Under the sun, on the top of the sand
And all you wanna hear is a bird call
All you want is a bird call
Só um bem-te-vi (just a bird)

Slowly
Walking through the fields
Empty heartbeat
Follow someone

Deixa pra lá

Rollercoasters in the thin rain
Now in my rainy mind
Stories slide insane
Slide insane
Slightly most, leaves under my feet
I feel my skin, it's so cold out here

Deixa pra trás

Lembra, lembra, lembra…

Que venham as flores e as águas de Yemanjá
Vem no vento, vem no vento
Pensa na beira do mar
Vem no vento, vem no vento
Pensa na beira do mar
Vem no vento, vem no vento
Pensa na beira do mar

Me deixa chegar
Me deixa chegar
Me deixa chegar

Que venham as flores e o cheiro de mar
Que venham as flores e o cheiro de mar
Vem no vento, vem no vento
Pensa na beira do mar

Lembra, lembra, lembra, lembra

Remember






















Let it go








Leave it behind

Remember, remember, remember...

Let there come the flowers and Yemanjá's waters
Come in the wind, come in the wind
Think at the border of the sea
Come in the wind, come in the wind
Think at the border of the sea
Come in the wind, come in the wind
Think at the border of the sea

Let me come
Let me come
Let me come

Let there come the flowers and the smell of sea
Let there come the flowers and the smell of sea
Come in the wind, come in the wind
Think at the border of the sea

Remember, remember, remember, remember

 

Cajuína

( Caetano Veloso )

Existirmos, a que será que se destina
Pois quando tu me deste a rosa pequenina
Vi que és um homem lindo e que se acaso a sina
Do menino infeliz se nos ilumina
Tampouco turva-se a lágrima nordestina
Apenas a matéria vida era tão fina
E éramos olharmos na intacta retina
Da cajuína cristalina em Teresina

E éramos olharmos na intacta retina
Da cajuína cristalina em Teresina

Cajuína

( Caetano Veloso )

We exist, where is it going to
'Cause when you give me this small rose
I've seen it's a handsome man and, by chance, the fate
Of an unhappy boy enlighten us
Neither has it shed the northeast tear
Just the life matter was so delicate
And we had been, we see into the intact retina
From crystal cajuína in Teresina

Underneath The Mango Tree

(Monty Norman cover)

Underneath the mango tree
Me honey and me can watch for the moon
Underneath the mango tree

Me honey and me make boolooloop soon

Underneath the mango tree
Underneath the mango tree
Underneath the mango tree
Underneath the mango tree

Man From Mars

I saw he came from the stars
Came all the way from Mars
To my backyard
He had a shiny golden suit
His eyes were pale blue
He came to ask me out

He said, I'm ???
Hey, would you drink with me
A martian cherry
So I said, I really like your clothes
Where can I find my own
And would you take me there

He said in Mars there is a place for us
And I, I said I would love to come and visit
He said, you were mine, you were in my dreams
And I said, you are my prince that only fill in this
In this…

You can ??
I can go with you

Dance with me…

Say goodbye mother
I'm moving out

I'll be the pineaple
You are my coconut

Lightworks

(Raymond Scott cover)

What is the magic that makes one's eyes
Sparkle and gleam, light up the skies
The name of the game is lightworks

What do you call a pair of eyes
That sparkle and gleam, light up the skies
The name of the game is lightworks

What do you call a pair of eyes
That sparkle and gleam, light up the skies
The name of the game is lightworks

How do you show those teasing lips
So they dazzle and shine, his heart does flips
The name of the game is lightworks

How do you blush so shyly
And make it linger
Yet boldly polish
Your ring finger
The name of the game is
Is lightworks

Lightworks is the game girls play
When they want someone to say
The name of the game is you, baby

Sad Piano

Baby, why you look so sad
When you play that piano
When you play that piano
When you play that piano

Baby, why you look so gloom
When you stand there holding that gun
When you stand there holding that gun
When you stand there holding that gun

Left behind
Left behind

I have a sad piano
You won't let me play
My fingers are stiff like hard clay
I have a sad piano
You won't let me sing
My voice is as stones in cold rain

Baby, why you look so sad
When you play my piano
When you play my piano
When you play my piano

Baby, why you look so gloom
When you stand there holding that gun
When you stand there holding that gun
When you stand there holding that gun

Left behind
Left behind

I have a sad piano
You won't let me play
My fingers are stiff like hard clay
I have a sad piano
You won't let me sing
My voice is as stones in cold rain

Frankenstein

You
Conclude I'm functioning correctly
So rest your heart
Caus' only you can stop me
From falling apart
And now I need to feel
The missing beat
The missing beat of my heart
For life
For life
I do, I do
I do, I do

Under neon disco ligths
We pogo through the night
In the dry ice I catch a stare
I feel the fingers through my hair
Love like science, alchemy
Tonight the nightclubs are laboratory
I need a lightning bolt to this heart
To kick start my Frankenstein soul
For life
I do, I do
I do, I do

Under neon disco ligths
We pogo through the night
In the dry ice I catch a stare
I feel the fingers through my hair
Love like science, alchemy
Tonight the nightclubs are laboratory
I need a lightning bolt to this heart
To kick start my Frankenstein soul
For life
I do

Escute Bem

Veja bem, meu bem
Vou te contar, me escute bem
Que o meu amor esteve aqui
E ele não foi em vão, não

Você precisa agora apenas
É acreditar em mim
Que não tem fim
Que tudo pode ser maior, melhor que tudo, tudo, tudo

Não fique mudo, não
E fale o que quiser falar
Pois se conformar não leva a nada
Não leva a nenhum lugar

Veja bem, meu bem
Vou te contar, me escute bem
Que o teu amor esteve aqui
E ele não foi em vão, não

Você precisa agora apenas
É acreditar em si
Que não tem fim
Que tudo pode ser maior, melhor que tudo, tudo, tudo

Não fique parado, não
E faça o que há de se fazer
Desfaça o que é melhor pra mim
E pra você
Pois não se mexer não
Não leva a nenhum lugar

Você precisa

Você precisa agora apenas
É acreditar em mim
Que não tem fim
Que tudo pode ser maior, melhor que tudo, tudo, tudo

Não fique parado, não
E faz o que tem que fazer
Mas faz entender, rapaz
Não penso mais em você

Pois se conformar não leva a nada, não
Não leva a algum lugar
O amor não é ficar
A esperar

Você precisa poder se entregar
Você tem que poder se apaixonar
Mas para isso você vai ter que mudar
E amar alguém

Você precisa amar alguém
Você precisa amar
E esse alguém é você
Listen Well

Listen Well, my dear
I'll tell you, listen well
That my love has been here
And it hasn't been in vain, no

Now you only need
Is to believe in me
That it never ends
That everything can be bigger, better than everything, everything, everything

Don't be silent, no
And say what you want to say
Because it's not worth it complying with
It leads nowhere

Listen well, my dear
I'll tell you, listen well
That your love has been here
And it hasn't been in vain, no

Now you only need
Is to believe in yourself
That it never ends
That everything can be bigger, better than everything, everything, everything

Don't stand still, no
And do what is there to be done
Undo what is better for me
And for you
Because being steady
It leads nowhere

You need

Now you only need
Is to believe in me
That it never ends
That everything can be bigger, better than everything, everything, everything

Don't stand still, no
And do what you have to do
But make yourself understood, boy
I don't think about you anymore

Because it's not worth it complying with, no
It leads nowhere
Love is not supposed to
To be kept waiting

You need to be capable of giving yourself away
You have to be capable of falling in love
But you will have to change yourself for that
And to love someone

You need to love someone
You need to love
And this someone is you

Mr and Ms Grey

(Written by Cibelle and Josh Weller)

Mr Lady Grey misses his girlfriend Sarah
Ms Earl Grey misses Earl Grey
The evening is grey and bitter like lemon

It's five o'clock in the afternoon
They've got cakes they've got scones
They're sitting in the living room
Wishing it was their drawing room
They wish, they had their personal harp player

The evenings are grey and bitter, like lemons

Mr Lady Grey wishes those kids would stay in school forever
Ms Earl Grey wants her daughter to wed a rich fellow

The evenings are grey and bitter, like lemons
The evenings are grey and bitter, like lemons

Ms Earl Grey goes to the "shops" every day
To get her betting cards and play
Maybe she'll win it someday
And come out as the real big spender

Mr Lady Grey goes to the dog tracks every day
To get his betting cards and play
Maybe he'll win it some day
And come out as the real big spender

It's morning, it's Saturday
They stay at home to watch replays
At the satellite TV that killed their dreams to spend the day in the park
Holding hands until after dark

One day their number made the mark
But their ticket came apart
And the' was the undoing
They dropped it in the brewing pot of brown tea
And they saw their dream dissolving

The evenings are grey and bitter, like lemons
The evenings are grey and bitter, like lemons
The evenings are grey and bitter, like lemons
The evenings are grey and bitter, like lemons

The Gun And The Knife

I have a gun and today you will die
Because you were my true love, mi corazón
I told you last night
I've carved your name in this bullet
I carried for you
I have a gun, oh my true love, will you fight me
And what will you do

I swear it to the sun
That I should stand in fight
I am in my skeleton
Steeling my knife
The small explosion in my heart
??? me thrill
I'd kill you
Kill you if you want me to
What will you do

I'd touch your face
And squeeze the trigger soft and slow
I'd push the knife into your breast
And your sweet blood would flow
I'd fall in 'til the death
You'd slowly close your eyes
Together we shall die

You've got steel in your bones
You've got fire in your heart
Yeah I've got power over you
You've got wings on your back
You've got the knowlegde of the stars
And I've got power over you

You've got fire in your bones
You've got steel in your heart
You've got power over me
I've got power over you
You've got fire in your bones
You've got the knowlegde of the stars
You've got power over me
Power over me (power over you)
You've got power over me (power over you)
Power over me

I shall take this as a sacrifice
I shall take this as a sacrifice
I'll need your ghost on the plane in the morning dust
I shall take this as a sacrifice
I'll need your ghost on the plane
I'll take your pale house
We'll dance, we'll dance

The bones of your fingers will lie like a mist on the air
The bones of my hands will sigh in the fog of your hair
We'll dance, we'll dance
We'll dance, we'll dance

Sapato Azul

Meu sapato azul é meu amigo
E com o pé no céu eu vou
Meu cabelo não pega fumaça
E nos meus dedos tenho penas para voar
E com os olhos bem abertos
Guardo pequenas estrelas
Pedacinhos de Deus
Pedacinhos de Deus

Asas coloridas
Asas coloridas

Desenhando com os dedos
A nuvem no céu
Escorregando, escorregando
Em asas de avião
Desenhando com os dedos
A nuvem no céu
Escorregando, escorregando
Em asas de avião

O sol me encantou
E me fez borboletas
?
Eu moro no céu
E os anjos das alamedas
Que habitam nos olhos dos moços
Vêm todos me visitar
Lá no céu
Lá no céu
Lá no céu

Com asas coloridas
Asas coloridas
Asas coloridas
Asas coloridas

Desenhando com os dedos
A nuvem no céu
Escorregando, escorregando
Em asas de avião
Desenhando com os dedos
A nuvem no céu
Escorregando, escorregando
Em asas de avião
 
Blue Shoes

My blue shoes are my friends
And I go up in the sky on my own two feet
My hair doesn't catch smoke
And I have feathers between my fingers to fly
And with my eyes wide open
I hold little stars
Small pieces of God
Small pieces of God

Colorful wings
Colorful wings

Drawing with my fingers
A cloud in the sky
Sliding over, sliding over
Airplane wings
Drawing with my fingers
A cloud in the sky
Sliding over, sliding over
Airplane wings

The sun has flattered me
And it has made me butterflies
?
I live up in the sky
And the angels in the boulevards
That live inside the boys' eyes
They all come to visit me
Up there in the sky
Up there in the sky
Up there in the sky

With colorful wings
Colorful wings
Colorful wings
Colorful wings

Drawing with my fingers
A cloud in the sky
Sliding over, sliding over
Airplane wings
Drawing with my fingers
A cloud in the sky
Sliding over, sliding over
Airplane wings

Braid My Hair

Essa estória é de uma princesa
Que morava numa terra muito distante
E se apaixonou por um príncipe
Que por ali cavalgava
E decidiu trançar seus cabelos
Até um dia
Em que ele retornasse
This story is about a princess
Who lived in a very far away land
And she fell in love with a prince
Who used to ride around there
And she decided to braid her hair
Until a day
He returns

One day I saw this man
We were cut from the same cloth
We had the same will
We had the same stars
Oh!

So I made made a promise
To grow my hair and wrap him
And I started braiding
My deep dark hair

And everyday the hair grows longer
And the longing is stronger
To feel his breath on my neck
Where did he go
He doesn't eve know me

My heart belongs to him
My soul belongs as well
He is the man in my dreams
Uh, I know it well
So I'll braid my hair
Until he's back
My long lost stare
I know he is out there
One day he'll come
Come back to me
And swim the seas
Of my deep dark hair

Oh!
I know
I know he'll come back
Caus' I made a promise
To grow my hair and wrap him
He's the man in my dreams
Uh, I know it well
So I will braid my hair
Until he's back
My long lost stare
I know he's out there
One day he'll come
Come back to me
And swim the seas
Of my deep dark hair

It's Not Easy Being Green

(Muppets cover)

It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green is the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean or important
Like a mountain or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful
And I think that's what I want to be

Bye Bye

Thank you for visiting Las Vênus Resort Palace Hotel
I hope you have enjoyed your stay
And I hope also that you come back often
A part to the end of the world
Yours truly
Sonja Khalecallon y Los Stroboscopious Luminous
Bye bye

Unbinding

Breathin'

Breathe in
And you move in silence
And you dance in the silence
Flow
And you move in silence
Dance in silence
Breathe in the silence
Breathe in

You need to make this body strong to take whatever it takes
A volcano an eruption an outburst of sound
You see you have to keep it
With a pause inside
You have to keep on breathing and you have to keep your eyes
Straight onto the point where you're pointing your gun
And your gun is your mind and you're gonna get it done

And you move in silence
You breathe in the silence

They don't want you to know
That the secret is inside your flow
All you have to do is you have to let go
Then you know the truth
You flow
You do
You go
As the wind surge
You can keep a float
It's like a floating boat
You can make it real

You flow the truth
The truth, truth
You flow the truth
The truth, truth
You flow the truth
The truth, truth
You flow the truth
The truth, truth

And you move in the silence
You dance in the silence
And you breathe in silence
And you move in silence
You dance in the silence
You breathe in the silence

About a girl

( Nirvana / About A Girl EP )

I need an easy friend
I do with an ear to lend
I do think you fit this shoe
I do what you have a clue

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry but I
Can't see you
Every night
Free
I do

I'm standing in your light
I do hope you have the time
I do pick up number two
I do keep my date with you

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry but I
Can't see you
Every night
Free
I do

I need an easy friend
I do with an ear to lend
I do think you fit this shoe
I do what you have a clue

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry but I
Can't see you
Every night
I do

Álcool

( Freezone – Seven Is Seven Is LP )

Se eu pudesse chegar em pensamento
E não deixar evaporar
Isso que tão etéreo como o álcool
Me consome embriagado em olhos e palavras
Que enxergam esse mesmo etéreo
Estaria outra vez, dentro a costurar
Fatos que ainda não vi

Mas que hão de vir na magia de um dia-a-dia
E quando ouço a tua voz
Ouço mais, que ouço nós
Ouço mais, que ouço nós
Ouço mais, que ouço nós

Se eu pudesse chegar em pensamento
E não deixar evaporar
Isso que tão etéreo como o álcool
Me consome embriagado em olhos e palavras
Que enxergam esse mesmo etéreo
Estaria outra vez, dentro a costurar
Fatos que ainda não vi

Mas que hão de vir na magia de um dia-a-dia
E quando ouço a tua voz
Ouço mais, que ouço nós
Ouço mais, que ouço nós
Ouço mais, que ouço nós

E quando ouço a tua voz...

Alcohol

( Freezone – Seven Is Seven Is LP )

If I could come in thoughts
And not to let it evaporate
Such an ethereal as the alcohol
That consumes me drunk in eyes and words
That see the same ethereal
I would be another time, about to sew
Facts that I haven't seen yet

But they will come in the magic of day by day
And when I listen to your voice
I listen to more, I listen to us
I listen to more, I listen to us
I listen to more, I listen to us

If I could come in thoughts
And not to let it evaporate
Such an ethereal as the alcohol
That consumes me drunk in eyes and words
That see the same ethereal
I would be another time, about to sew
Facts that I haven't seen yet

But they will come in the magic of day by day
And when I listen to your voice
I listen to more, I listen to us
I listen to more, I listen to us
I listen to more, I listen to us

And when I listen to your voice...

Belle's Poem

( Juryman / Escape To Where LP )

De todos os gestos
Nada é demais
Da sutileza
Da sutileza
De sutileza, nada além

Era de se dizer
Se não quer não de amor
Amor já diz não
Tem mais que se dizer, ó Deus
Pra nunca mais

Nunca
Pra nunca ao menos ser
Demais
Nunca ao menos ser demais

De todos os gestos
Nada é demais
Da sutileza
Da sutileza
De sutileza, nada além

Que o beijo seja adeus
Deixar pra nunca mais
Voltar aos teus
Me deixa em paz

Me deixa em paz
E eu me deixar, fico em paz
Adeus
Adeus é uma paz

De todos os gestos
Nada é demais
Da sutileza
Da sutileza
Da sutileza, nada além

Belle's Poem

( Juryman / Escape To Where LP )

From all the gestures
Nothing is too much
From kindness
From kindness
From kindness, nothing further

It was supposed to say
If no is not needed of love
Love already says no
It's got to say it, oh God
For not anymore

Never
Never be, at least
Too much
Never be too much, at least

From all the gestures
Nothing is too much
From kindness
From kindness
From kindness, nothing further

That kiss be goodbye
To let it for anymore
To come back to yours
Leave me in peace

Leave me in peace
And I leave myself in peace, I am in peace
Goodbye
Goodbye is peace

From all the gestures
Nothing is too much
From kindness
From kindness
From kindness, nothing further

Ela é carioca

( Tom Jobim / Celso Fonseca featuring Cibelle )

Here she comes, here she comes
Here she comes, here she comes

Ela é carioca, she's a carioca*
Just see the way she walks
Nobody else can be what she is to me
I look and what do I see
When I look deep in her eyes
I can see the sea
A forgotten road
The caressing skies

And not only that, I'm in love with her
The most exciting way
It's written on my lips
Where her kisses stay
She smiles and all of a sudden
The world is smiling for me
And you know what else
She's a carioca
Ela é carioca

Here she comes
Here she comes

Ela é carioca, ela é carioca
Basta o jeitinho dela andar
Nem ninguem tem carinho assim para dar
Eu vejo na luz dos seus olhos
As noites do rio ao luar
Vejo a mesma luz
Vejo o mesmo ceu
Vejo o mesmo mar
She's a carioca, she's a carioca*
The way she walks is enough
Nobody else has a caress like that to give
I see in the light of your eyes
The nights at the river by the moonlight
I see the same light
I see the same sky
I see the same sea

And not only that, I'm in love with her
The most exciting way
It's written on my lips
Where her kisses stay
She smiles and all of a sudden
The world is smiling for me
And you know what else
She's a carioca
Ela é carioca

Here she comes, here she comes
Here she comes, here she comes


* Carioca: a person who was born in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Felicidade

( Jobim/Moraes / Suba - Sao Paulo Confessions LP )

Tristeza não tem fim, felicidade sim
Tristeza não tem fim, felicidade sim...

A felicidade é como a gota
De orvalho numa petala de flôr
Brilha tranquila depois de leve oscila
E cai como uma lágrima de amor

Tristeza não tem fim, felicidade sim
Tristeza não tem fim, felicidade sim...

A felicidade é como a pluma
Que o vento vai levando pelo ar
Voa tão leve, mais tem a vida breve
Precisa que haja vento sem parar

Happiness

( Jobim/Moraes / Suba - Sao Paulo Confessions LP )

Sadness is endless, happiness isn't
Sadness is endless, happiness isn't

Happiness is like a drop
Of dew on a petal of flower
It shines calmly, then it sways softly
And it falls down like a tear of love

Sadness is endless, happiness isn't
Sadness is endless, happiness isn't

Happiness is like a feather
That wind takes through the air
It flies so softly, but its life is short
There must be a continuous wind

 

Flor Na Favela

( Favela Chic Postonove V.2 LP )

Tá caindo flor
Tá caindo flor
Cai do céu, na favela
Ei, tá caindo flor
Cai do céu, na favela
Ei, tá caindo flor

Tá caindo flor
Tá caindo flor
Tá caindo flor
Tá caindo flor
Cai do céu, na favela
Ei, tá caindo flor
Cai do céu, na favela
Ei, tá caindo flor

Ah... lava a água, né?

Flower In The Slum

( Favela Chic Postonove V.2 LP )

Flower is falling
Flower is falling
It's falling from the sky, in the slum
Hey, flower is falling
It falls from the sky, in the slum
Hey, flower is falling

Flower is falling
Flower is falling
Flower is falling
Flower is falling
It falls from the sky, in the slum
Hey, flower is falling
It falls from the sky, in the slum
Hey, flower is falling

Ah… wash the water, don't you?

Footloose

(Kenny Loggins cover / Hollywood, Mon Amour feat. Cibelle)

I've been working so hard
I'm punching my card
Eight hours, for what
Oh, tell me what I got
I've got this feeling
That time's just holding me down

I'll hit the ceiling
Or else I'll tear up this town
Town

Tonight I gotta cut loose
A footloose
Kick off my Sunday shoes
Please, Louise
Pull me off my knees
Jack, get back
C'mon, before we crack
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

You're playing so cool
Obeying every rule
Dig way down in your heart
You're burning, yearning for some
Somebody to tell you
That life ain't passing you by

When I'm trying to tell you
It will if you don't even try
Try, try, try

Tonight I gotta cut loose
A footloose
Kick off my Sunday shoes
Please, Louise
SPull me off my knees
Jack, get back
C'mon, before we crack
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

Tonight I gotta cut loose
Kick off my Sunday shoes
Please, Louise
Pull me off my knees
Jack, get back
C'mon, before we crack
Everybody cut
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose
Everybody, yeah

Kick off my Sunday shoes
Gotta cut loose
Footloose
Kick off my Sunday shoes
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Everybody cut footloose
Everybody
Everybody cut footloose

Gracefully

(About A Girl EP)

Um, dois, três, quatro
Um, dois, três, quatro
Um, dois, três, quatro

???
She sits and crosses her legs
Twinkling her eye
Feels as much as a ???

Um, dois, três, quatro
Um, dois, três, quatro
Um, dois, três, quatro

Feels her skin crawling
Time and space unfolding
She is falling precisely
Into his arms

She's falling
She's falling
She's falling
Gracefully
Gracefully

She has fallen into life

Her eyes are painted black
She scratches and paints down to her neck
She's falling precisely
Into his arms
Into his eyes
Protecting her
From means and crimes
Protecting her
Protecting her
Gracefully
Gracefully

She has fallen into life
Grace, grace, grace
Gracefully
Grace, grace, gracefully

Meu Amor

( Ziriguiboom - The Now Sound Of Brazil 2 LP )

Passei no passado pra ver
O presente que você me deu
Um futuro se não se esqueceu

E o traçado com X no chão
Engraçado presta atenção

Meu bem
Bem feito pra quem te quer bem
Meu amor
Vou correr pra encontrar minha flor

Passei no passado pra ver
O presente que você me deu

Minha colcha feito à mão
O traçado com X no chão
Engraçado presta atenção

Ah, meu amor
Vou correr pra encontrar minha flor

É tempo de tempo chegar
É tempo de tempo crescer
É tempo de tempo de amar

E é tempo de tempo crescer
É tempo de tempo de amar

My Love

( Ziriguiboom - The Now Sound Of Brazil 2 LP )

I've been to the past to see
The present that you've given to me
A future if you haven't forgotten
The past you've made to me

My blanket made by hand
And the draw with X on the ground
Funny, pay attention

My sweet
Well done to whom wants you well
My love
I'm going to run to find my flower

I've been to the past to see
The present that you've given to me
A future if you haven't forgotten
The past you've made to me

My blanket made by hand
And the draw with X on the ground
Funny, pay attention

My sweet
Well done to whom wants you well
My love
I'm going to run to find my flower

It's time of time to fly
It's time of time to come
It's time of time to grow
It's time of time to love

It's time of time to fly
It's time of time to come
It's time of time to grow
It's time of time to love

Ah...

My, my, my love
My love, my love
My love

I'm going to run to find my flower
My love
My love
My love
My love
My love

Noite De Carnaval

( About A Girl EP )

From water and salt, remains on sounds
Surrounding sounds
It's bursting the silence with things I can't tell

My eyes stay wide open
And it burns in the sky
I wash all my spirit stay clean to white guy
From water and salt, remains on sounds
Surrounding sounds
It's bursting the silence with things I can't tell

Punk Da Periferia

(Gilberto Gil / Som Brasil TV Show - 21/12/2007)

Das feridas que a pobreza cria
Sou o pus
Sou o que de resto restaria
Aos urubus
Pus por isso mesmo este blusão carniça
Fiz no rosto este make-up pó caliça
Quis trazer assim nossa desgraça à luz

Sou um punk da periferia
Sou da Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, aqui pra vocês
Sou da Freguesia

Sou um punk da periferia
Sou da Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, aqui pra vocês
Sou da Freguesia

Ter cabelo tipo índio moicano
Me apraz
Saber que entraremos pelo cano
Satisfaz
Vós tereis um padre pra rezar a missa
Dez minutos antes de virar fumaça
Nós ocuparemos a Praça da Paz

Sou um punk da periferia
Sou da Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, aqui pra vocês
Sou da Freguesia

Sou um punk da periferia
Sou da Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, aqui pra vocês
Sou da Freguesia

Curto lixo, transo porcaria
Tenho dó
Da esperança vã da minha tia
Da vovó
Esgotados os poderes da ciência
Esgotada toda a nossa paciência
Eis que esta cidade é um esgoto só

Sou um punk da periferia
Sou da Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, aqui pra vocês
Sou da Freguesia

Sou um punk da periferia
Sou da Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, aqui pra vocês
Sou da Freguesia

Punk From Periphery (Punk da Periferia)

Note: Freguesia do Ó is a neighborhood of São Paulo city

From the wounds that poverty creates
I am the pus
I am what would remain from the leftlovers
To the vultures
That's why I wore this carrion blouse
I poured this dust powder in my face
So that I wanted to bring our disgrace to the light

I am a punk from periphery
I am from Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, here you are
I am from Freguesia

I am a punk from periphery
I am from Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, here you are
I am from Freguesia

To have Mohican-Indian hair
It pleases me
To know we'll get in trouble
It satisfies
You'll have a priest to pray the Mass
Ten minutes before turning into smoke
We'll occupy the Peace Square

I am a punk from periphery
I am from Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, here you are
I am from Freguesia

I am a punk from periphery
I am from Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, here you are
I am from Freguesia

I enjoy garbage, I'm fond of trash
I'm pity of
My aunt's useless hope
My grandmother
Weary powers of science
All of our weary patience
Our city is a drain itself

I am a punk from periphery
I am from Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, here you are
I am from Freguesia

I am a punk from periphery
I am from Freguesia do Ó
Ó
Ó, here you are
I am from Freguesia

Refazenda

(Gilberto Gil / Som Brasil TV Show - 21/12/2007)

Hmmm...

Abacateiro, acataremos teu ato
Nós também somos do mato como o pato e o leão
Aguardaremos, brincaremos no regato
Até que nos tragam frutos teu amor, teu coração

Abacateiro, teu recolhimento é justamente
O significado da palavra temporão
Enquanto o tempo não trouxer teu abacate
Amanhecerá tomate e anoitecerá mamão

Ah...

Abacateiro, sabes ao que estou me referindo
Porque todo tamarindo tem o seu agosto azedo
Cedo, antes que o janeiro doce manga venha ser também
Abacateiro, serás meu parceiro solitário
Nesse itinerário da leveza pelo ar
Abacateiro, saiba que na refazenda
Tu me ensina a fazer renda que eu te ensino a namorar

Ah...

Refazendo tudo

Sereia, Amor D'Água (Cibelle Remake)

( Suba / Tributo LP )

Dois, dois, três

Tenho tua palma na alma da mão
Tenho tua mão no meu corpo, no chão
Tenho teu corpo e a tua maldição
Na mão e na calma da intuição
Quero esse simples teu livre de ser
Quero esse livre tão simples de ver
Quero te ver em ter livre e tecer
Teu antes, teu hoje e teu simples viver

No mar
Sereia
No fundo do mar
Sereia

Tenho tua palma na alma da mão
Eu tenho tua mão no meu corpo, no chão
Tenho teu corpo e a tua maldição
Na mão e na calma da intuição
Quero esse simples teu livre de ser
Quero esse livre tão simples de ver
Quero te ver em ter livre e tecer
Teu antes, seu hoje e teu simples viver

No mar
Sereia
No fundo do mar
Sereia
No fundo do mar

Amor d'água, amor de sal
Te amordaço por bem ou por mal
Te levo pro mar num cavalo-marinho pra te ter
Pra te ter nas conchas de Vênus
Te envolver nos cabelos de Eva

Sereia do mar
Sereia

Sereia do mar
Sereia
No fundo do mar
Sereia
No fundo do mar

Mermaid, Love of Water

( Suba / Tributo LP )

Two, two, three

I've got your palm in the soul of hand
I've got your hand on my body, on the ground
I've got your body and your curse
In the hand and in the tranquility of intuition
I want this simple and free of being
I want this free and too simple of seeing
I want to see you to set it free and to weave
Yours before, yours today and your simple living

In the sea
Mermaid
Deep into the sea
Mermaid

I've got your palm in the soul of hand
I've got your hand on my body, on the ground
I've got your body and your curse
In the hand and in the tranquility of intuition
I want this simple and free of being
I want this free and too simple of seeing
I want to see you to set it free and to weave
Yours before, yours today and your simple living

In the sea
Mermaid
Deep into the sea
Mermaid
Deep in the sea

Love of water, love of salt
I gag you by hook or by crook
I take you to the sea on a sea-horse to have you
To have you in the Venus's shells
To wrap you up in Eve's hair

Mermaid of the sea
Mermaid

Mermaid of the sea
Mermaid
Deep into the sea
Mermaid
Deep into the sea

 

Sonho Meu

( Xis featuring Cibelle Cavalli - Fortificando a desobediência LP )

Tento acreditar que foi um sonho
Nossa... Pra explicar ou entender vai ser foda
Um rolo compressor como se fosse o mais fudido devastador impacto fulminante
Não me restou uma saída ou outra chance, não
Por um instante pensei que era aquilo e só
Tristeza de dar dó, desilusão com tudo
Caiu meu mundo eu me senti só o pó
A gente acredita, vai e se dedica, mata, morre por alguém
por algo que se tem
Porém, no escuro, pelas costas vem um tiro
fecham-se as cortinas e você não é mais ninguém
última cena, último ato, a dor...
Porcos festejam sobre o corpo de um defensor
Que dedicou... enfim... o máximo de si
que então tentou, então tentou e se fodeu no fim
Não sou ator, isso aqui não é novela
Real realidade, eu faço parte dela
Não tô entre um comercial e outro e tal
Passando a rola e pá na pilantra da atriz principal
Eu tô falando de traição, de pilantragem
Minha poética versão, minha verdade
Mais apurada sincera que deus me deu
Até parece que foi sonho meu

Sonho meu... Até parece que foi sonho meu
Sonho meu... Como faz falta um abraço seu
Não vejo a hora de isso tudo acabar
Me dá uma chance, eu quero acreditar
Que nada dessa porra aconteceu

Seis da manhã
A insônia me pegou, me fodeu, trouxe a lembrança
Nada de chá, nada de café
Eu quero é um gole de amor, de esperança
Paz de criança dormindo, ligou?
A tática perfeita, o respeito, o amor...
O coro Oh! oh! A gíria morou!?
A úultima ponta de luz, puxou?
Talvez um dia lá você esteja louco, lá
Com o dedo no gatilho, suando frio pronto pra atirar
Firmeza, seu mano, e você firmeza
O plano definido, a fita derradeira
Não falo de contrato, eu falo de amizade
O fato é o que eu falo e o que eu faço é com cumplicidade
Na malandragem do bem quem liga ligou
Sou quem rima o terror, tô na paz do Senhor
Ei, meu mano, num atirou pipocou
Faltou disposição na ladeira, me abandonou
Aonde estou, que treta, que fita
Esta é minha vida eh... cê acredita?
Em um instante tudo se perdeu
Quem é você, me responde quem sou eu?
O fim da linha por um erro que cê cometeu
Até parece que foi sonho meu...

Sonho meu... Até parece que foi sonho meu
Sonho meu... Como faz falta um abraço seu
Não vejo a hora de isso tudo acabar
Me dá uma chance, eu quero acreditar
Que nada dessa porra aconteceu

Fui humilhado, tratado como um nada, um bosta
Inocente ou culpado agora não importa, bosta!
Perdi a vida, fecharam-se as portas, bosta
Não tive média, me expulsaram da escola, bosta
Minha ferida não cicatriza, é foda
Tudo o que passei, o que sofri, quem se incomoda?
Como é foda saber que a causa é uma bosta
E a conseqüência na sua cara engatilhada, é foda
Passa o dia, passa a hora, passa o tempo... passa a bola
É foda, minha memória infectada descontrola
abala o corpo e sobra a alma pra vitória, bosta
Um pobre dialeto que me sobra, vi violência pura
me tortura, como é foda, sonho um dia ser feliz
Sair da bosta, um salve pras cadeias do país
Paz e Glória...

Sonho meu...
Até parece que foi...
Sonho meu

Dream of mine

( Xis featuring Cibelle Cavalli - Fortificando a desobediência LP )

I try to believe that it was a dream
My oh my... it'll be fucking hard to explain or to uderstand
A compressing coil, as if it was the most fucking devastating and sudden impact
There was no way out for me or another chance, no
For a moment, I thought it was the only thing
A pity sorrow, disillusion with everything
My world has fallen apart and I've turned into dust
We believe, go on and dedicate ourselves, kill and die for someone
For something that we have
However, in the dark, there it comes a shot right behind your back
The curtains close and you're no longer nobody
The last scene, the last act, the pain...
Pigs cheer up on a defender's body
That has dedicated... at last... all his best
That at least tried, at least tried and got fucked up in the end
I'm not an actor, this is not a soap opera
Real reality, I belong to it
I'm not among those TV ads
Gettting laid the naughty main actress
I'm talking about betrayal, about piracy
My poetic version, my truth
The most acurate and sincere truth that God has given to me
It looked like a dream of mine

Dream of mine... it looked like a dream of mine
Dream of mine... I miss so much a hug of yours
I hope that all of this ends
Give me one chance, I want to believe
That fucking nothing has happened

Six in the morning
Insomnia has caught me, it has fucked me up, it has brought me to mind
No tea, no coffee
All I want is a tip of love, of hope
Peace of a sleeping child, got it?
The perfect tactic, the respect, the love...
Oh oh Oh! oh! That's the slang, got it!?
The last tip of light, got it?
Maybe one day out there, you might be mad about out there
With your finger in the trigger, sweating cold and ready to shot
Cool, bro', and you, cool
The plan is set up, the last one
I don't talk about business, I talk about friendship
The fact is that I speak and what I do is with complicity
In the trickery of good, who gets it, got it
I'm the one who rhymes the terror, I'm in peace of the Lord
Hey, my bro', you didn't shot, got lost
You missed your disposal at the slope, you abandoned me
Where am I, what a trap, what a trap
This is my life, yeah... d'you believe?
In a moment, everything has been lost
Who are you, answer me, who am I?
The end of line by a mistake that you've made
It looked like a dream of mine…

Dream of mine... it looked like a dream of mine
Dream of mine... I miss so much a hug of yours
I hope that all of this ends
Give me one chance, I want to believe
That fucking nothing has happened

I've been humiliated, treated like nothing, a crap
Non-guilty or guilty, now it doesn't matter, shit!
I've lost my life, the doors have been closed, shit
I didn't have any score, they've dropped me out from the school, shit
My wound doesn't heal, it's a fuck
Everything that I've been through, what I've suffered, who cares?
It's so fucking hard to know that the cause is a crap
And the consequence right on your face, it's a fuck
Day passes by, time passes by, time passes by, give it to me
It's a fuck, my infected memory is out of control
It shakes my body and my soul remains to the victory, shit
A poor dialect that is left to me, I've seen pure violence
It tortures me, it's a fuck, I dream to be happy one day
Get out of this crap, a salve for the jails in the country
Peace and Glory…

Dream of mine
It looked like a...
Dream of mine

 

Tantos Desejos

( Suba / Tributo LP )

Eternos ventos sussurrantes
Revoltos mares dissonantes
Sempre você

Na solidão, nos pensamentos
Sempre você
Como em outros beijos
No cair da noite
Sempre você

Tantos desejos
Sempre você
Copulado
Sempre você
Sempre você

So Many Desires

( Suba / Tributo LP )

Eternal rustling winds
Revolting dissonant seas
Always you

In the loneliness, in the thoughts
Always you
Like in another kisses
At the twilight
Always you

So many desires
Always you
Copulated
Always you
Always you
