Evan & Jaron - The distance

























The sky has lost its color
The sun has turned to grey
At least that's how it feels to me
Whenever you're away
I crawl up in the corner
To watch the minutes pass
Each one brings me closer to
The time you're coming back

I can't take the distance
I can't take the miles
I can't take the time
Until the next time i see you smile
I can't take the distance
And I'm not ashamed
i can't take a breath
without saying your name
But I can't take the distance...

I still believe my feelings
But sometimes I feel too much
I make believe you're close to me
But it ain't close enough
Not nearly close enough

I can't take the distance
I can't take the miles
I can't take the time
Until I next see you smile
I can't take the distance
And I'm not ashamed
That with every breath I take
I'm calling your name

I'd brave fire and I'd brave rain
To be by your side I'd do anything
I can't take the distance...

I will go the distance
I will go the miles
that's how much you mean to me

Cause I can't take the distance
I can't take these miles
I can't take the time until I next see you smile
I can't take the distance
And I'm not ashamed
That with every breath I take
I'm calling your name
I can't take the distance

I can't take the distance...




Walk to remember - If you believe




















I close my eyes and even when I'm sleeping I'm alright
Cause you are in my life
Once upon a time
I only imagined this
And now you're mine
Wished for you so hard
Pray that you'd find me
Maybe you're here today
Here to remind me

If you believe that dreams come true
There's one that's waiting there for you
Cause I believed when I saw you that when you want something enough
Then it can't escape your love
There is nothing in the world that cannot be
If you believe


Everybody said that I was a fool to think that we connect
(Everybody said that) I couldn't get my heart out of my head
They just didn't see
No they just couldn't know
The feeling that you get
The places that you go

If you believe that dreams come true
There's one that's waiting there for you
Cause I believed when I saw you
That when you want something enough
Then it can't escape your love
There is nothing in the world that cannot be
If you believe

Never wished for material things
Never needed wind in my wings
I never wished for anything but you....
I can't explain it
Someone just told me
Go where your heart is you'll never be lonely

If you believe that dreams come true
There's one that's waiting there for you
Cause I believed when I saw you that when you want someone enough
Then they can't escape your love
There is nothing in the world that cannot be
If you believe

Dare you to move - Switchfoot




























Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next
What happens next

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
Tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before




Learning to breathe - Switchfoot




























Hello, good morning, how you do?
What makes your rising sun so new?
I could use a fresh beginning too
All of my regrets are nothing new
So this is a way that I say I need you
This is a way

This is a way that I'm learning to breathe
I'm learning to crawl
I'm finding that you and you alone can break my fall
I'm living again, awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies

Hello, good morning, how you been?
Yesterday left my head kicked in
I never, never thought that
I would fall like that
Never knew that I could hurt this bad

I'm learning to breathe
I'm learning to crawl
I'm finding that you and you alone can break my fall
I'm living again, awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies
These abundant skies
Yeah, abundant skies, yeah

This is a way that I say I need you
This is a way that I say I love you
This is a way that I say I'm yours
This is a way

This a a way that I'm learning to breathe
I'm learning to crawl
I'm finding that you and you alone can break my fall
I'm living again, awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies
These abundant skies, yeah
I'm learning to breathe
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies

Hello, good morning, how you do?


Brighter than sunshine - Aqualung




















I never understood before
I never knew what love was for
My heart was broke, my head was sore
What a feeling

Tied up in ancient history
I didn't believe in destiny
I look up you're standing next to me
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, i don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine
and it's brighter than sunshine

I never saw it happening
I'd given up and given in
I just couldn't take the hurt again
What a feeling

I didn't have the strength to fight
suddenly you seemed so right
Me and you
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine

It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun, sun, shine.

Love will remain a mystery
But give me your hand and you will see
Your heart is keeping time with me

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine

I got a feeling in my soul



Partida













M
adrugada acesa de estrelas nubladas.
De onde contemplo tudo aquilo que vivo, agora.

Com o passar dos dias não consigo perceber se tudo se torna mais fácil ou mais difícil sem ti.
Estou aqui, como uma vela acesa, cujo o pavio está prestes a chegar ao fim.
Eu amo-te como nunca amei.
E, mesmo que eu tente enganar-me, imaginando que tu não o sabes, já não consigo arranjar mais desculpas que me façam desculpar-te.
Apercebo-me que amar-te só, não chega...
Na verdade nunca chegou.
Apercebo-me que me esgotei e que estou exausta.
Não consigo continuar a lutar por um sentimento que só eu sinto.
Um sentimento que tu estás a matar a cada instante que marca o meu tempo (perdido).
E mesmo que isso me arda na pele e me magoe o coração, eu não me posso (des)iludir mais...
Nem contigo, nem comigo.
Tu, ausentaste-te do mundo e de mim,
Fugiste para um refugio de antepassados presentes onde eu não existo.
Estão a transbordar de memórias e de sentimentos, por isso, já não há espaço para mim...
Mas, eu também não quero ser o teu passado, quero ser o teu presente.
Mas não posso.
Talvez um dia, quando o teu tempo acelerar, eu faça parte do teu passado-recente.
Mas serei sempre um passado...
Agora, deixaste-me num presente que não consegues viver.
E hoje, já nem a tua sombra, lá permanece.
Fizeste as malas e partiste.
E, aos poucos e poucos eu sinto-te a partir...
De mim!

Brincadeiras






















Agora queres brincar de esconde-esconde?
Então vamos a isso!

Eu conto até 1000, para que os acontecimentos não me façam entrar em colapso sentimental.
Depois, tu, corres para algum lugar (que eu não imagino onde seja) e escondeste muito bem.
Desapareces.

Eu, quando terminar a minha contagem decrescente em crescente ansiedade de não te deixar ir, vou à tua procura...
Corro e vasculho todos os cantos do mundo...

E por fim, ou ganho ou perco!

Está nas minhas mãos ou nas tuas?

O objectivo é que tu chegues ao ponto de partida.

Que regresses onde me deixaste, mesmo que a perder ao quadrado.

E aí tu ganhas.

Mas tu sempre ganhas...
E eu, tristemente, sempre perco!
Sempre me perco...
Sem ti.

(Ir)real ?
































Ouvi, ao longe, não nitidamente, uns passos vagarosos.
E, repentinamente, senti oscilações no meu mundo.
Serás tu?
Será que encontraste o caminho de regresso?
Parecia tudo irreal, mas não.
Ao fundo, um vulto, caminhava na minha direcção.
Ainda não estava perto, mas já lhe ouvia os passos...
Levantei-me numa ânsia ofegante de palavras e de gestos.
Aceleradamente, sentia-me presa em mim e livre dos grilhões do mundo.
Eram sentimentos simultâneos, inercias controversas de coisas que não se explicam com palavras.
E tu continuavas a caminhar para mim.
Não aguentei e corri, corri para ti, para os teus braços...
Olhaste-me como da primeira vez.
E eu, senti-te como sempre te sinto.
Tremi.
O teu toque, o teu cheiro, tu...
Seria realmente tudo real?
Estaria mesmo a acontecer?
Sim, realmente estava a acontecer.
O meu mundo, vagarosamente, voltou a rodar em oscilações compassadas com o coração.
E eu amei-te.
Amei-te como se ama, verdadeiramente, alguém...
Sem receios e sem medos.
Num silêncio em unisono numa melodia só nossa.
E adormecemos num sonho, conjunto, em que o meu corpo e teu se tornaram um só...

Acordei, ainda atordoada de momentos.
Procurei-te.
Mas, tu já não estavas lá.
Chorei, chorei, novamente, uma nova ausência tua.
Porquê?!
Eu dei-te o meu coração.
E tu, guardaste-o e levaste-o contigo.
Mas, comigo, só deixaste as fotografias espalhadas pelo chão.
Momentos aprisionados em pedaços de papel que acorrentaram a minha alma.
Exijo o meu coração de volta!
Mas eu não sei quando voltas.
Não sei se voltas...

E, lentamente o meu mundo voltou a parar...
E eu, continuo aqui...



Vulnerable - Secondhand Serenade























Share with me the blankets that your wrapped in
Because it's cold outside, cold outside, it's cold outside
Share with me the secrets that you kept in
Because it's cold inside, cold inside, it's cold inside

And your slowly shaking finger tips
Show that you're scared like me so
Let's pretend we're alone
And I know you're maybe scared
And I know we're unprepared
But I don't care

Tell me, tell me
What makes you think that you are invincible?
I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure
Please don't tell me that I am the only one not vulnerable
Impossible

I was born to tell you I love you
Isn't it a song already?
I get a 'B' in originality
And it's true I can't go on without you
Your smile makes me see clear
If you could only see in the mirror what I see

And your slowly shaking finger tips
Show that you're scared like me so
Let's pretend we're alone
And I know you're maybe scared
And I know we're unprepared
But I don't care

Tell me, tell me
What makes you think that you are invincible?
I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure
Please don't tell me that I am the only one not vulnerable
Impossible

Slow down girl, you're not going anywhere
Just wait around and see, maybe I'm much more
You never know what lies ahead
I promise I can be anyone, I can be anything
Just because you were hurt, doesn't mean you shouldn't bleed
I can be anyone anything, I promise I can be what you need (I can be what you need)

Tell me, tell me
What makes you think that you are invincible?
I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure
Please don't tell me that I am the only one not vulnerable
Impossible



Take my heart back - Jennifer Love Hewitt












It'll be alright
You said
Tomorrow
Don't you cry
Don't you shed a tear
When you wake up
I will still be here
When you wake up
We'll battle all your fears
And now I'll...

Take my heart back
Leave your pictures on the floor
Still back my memories
I can't take it anymore
I've cried my eyes out
Oh,and now I face the years
The way you loved me
Vanished all the tears

Just a little more time was all we needed
Just a little time for me to see
Oh,the light that life can give you
Oh,how we get such a free
So now I'll...

Take my heart back
Leave your pictures on the floor
Still back my memories
I can't take it anymore
I've cried my eyes out
Oh,and now I face the years
The way you loved me
Vanished all the tears
