    THE SECRET GARDEN
    This is a song which talks about an anxious and surrealistic love, where you need to have everything under control, and you can take your love to the secret garden of your dreams.
     

    I am only dreaming so don´t bother me at all
    and you keep moving closer closer to my heart
    you are surely hiding a secret I should know
    let me love you twice today, tomorrow I don´t know... what I´ll do

    I am only waiting so please c´mon back to me
    I am only sleeping to recover from the beat
    you are surely hiding a secret I should know
    let me love you twice today, tomorrow I don´t know... what I´ll do

    Babe (babe) let me tell you (telling you)
    what (what) I´m doing now (doing now)
    babe (babe) let me take you (taking you)
    to the secret garden of my dreams

    to the secret garden of my...



     
     

    DAD
    This song talks about those bands who are lucky, and generally about those people who are very lucky and they have to do nothing to success, with all kind of contacts, and those other bands and people who are not so lucky but they want to reach the same goal, so they need to fight every day with courage, since nothing is easy to them. I think that we belong to this second group. Nobody gives us as present.
     

    They´ve got the luck
    they´ve got the fame
    and they need no-one else to run
    They´ve got their dad
    who drives them high
    we want a dad who does the same too

    Someone tries to justify whether they´re right or they´re wrong again today

    We´ve got to fight
    we´ve got to shout
    we´ve got to go out to the streets
    We´ve got to wait
    outside and play
    until somebody trusts what we say

    Someone tries to justify whether they´re right or they wrong again today

    I´m nothing more than you and you are nothing more than me, oh yeah

    Give your heart
    give your mind
    give your soul or go away
    keep your faith
    keep your dreams
    keep your soul or go away








     
     

    MAGIC LAND
    This is a semi-surrealistic song that talks about taking advantage of everything, taking advantage of life, and sometimes it´s useful to get away to your favourite place, your dreamed land, and spend such good times.

    You and I and they and we try to move and try to run outside and cry
    why are we the same as them and why are you the same as me when I try to smile

    Today we´re going to play a game in which we all can win
    the stars will lose their bright tonight if you don´t stay
    tomorrow it will be another day we cannot wait
    we needn´t run but we must spend this night the best we can,
    and the best we are, the best we have,
    inside our hearts there is a land
    a place where we can stand and run (to hide)

    You and I and they and we try to dream and try to fly away everyday
    should we go or should we wait ´till the end of a lonely day, we´ll stay or go away

    My land is covered with amounts of sand but we must run
    if we don´t want to lose this chance we´d better dance
    we could slowly walk along this path, the shore we are
    now it doesn´t matter much to me where you are
    if you can come and take my hand
    I´ll lead you to the magic land where we can reach the sun
    close we are (and fly)

    You and I and they and we try to stand up try to sit down here where we lie now








     
     

    HAVE YOU EVER...?
    This song talks about imagination, which we should use more than we usually do, and we should lose our fear of imaging whatever we want, do different and new things, and try to innovate and invent...
     

    Have you ever listened to the start of my story?
    Have you ever dreamt of little goblins at your window?
    When I try to sleep at night
    I can see them come near me
    I want to believe that it´s a dream and they´re not real

    ...but I can swear I could see nine...

    (You should) Guess what you have to do
    feed your imagination feeling
    just like your mind designs
    listen to the little goblins, little voices, little feelings...

    ... like the night before the day...
    ... like the clouds behind the sky...

    Have you ever listened to the end of my story?








     
     

    STUPID GIRL (The Newsies)
    This song talks about feelings, despair,... of those times when everything goes wrong and turns confused. It talks about wandering and wasting time.
     

    Everything is going wrong because my baby left me
    every night I lay awake thinking about you, honey
    every time the phone rings like a police siren
    I wish somebody´d come along... along...

    And I always lose my mind when I´m fine...
    every night I lay awake dull affairs...
    you´d better stop the siren like a stupid girl...
    you´d better stop the siren, girl... my girl...

    And I always waste my time
    in a winter´s garden,
    like a stupid girl
    And I´m making up my mind
    like a police siren,
    like a stupid girl
    And I´m making up my mind
    like a police siren...
    Stupid girl!!

    And I always lose my mind when I´m fine...
    You´d better stop the siren, girl... my girl...








     
     

    CHANGE
    This is a rebel but a positive song, which talks about change, of breaking with the past and doing new things, breaking with everything and starting a new life. Breaking with prejudgements, with ourselves, and turn everything to something better, changing our points of view, and our life style,... fighting for our dreams with strength and conviction, fighting for our ideals, being always in a positive attitude to reach whatever we wish... changing always for better, and doing everything JUST NOW!!!
     

    Change, change your point of view, change your ways
    change the games you play, change again...
    change for better...
    You should have changed, changed your way of life, changed your name,
    changed your clothes, changed your old ideas
    for newer ones...

    Fight with the strength of your new dream...
    fight with the strength of your new life...

    I can´t understand why you´re walking back home
    you told me you´d never surrender
    I can´t understand why you´re leaving me alone
    now that we´re having new chances

    Change, don´t believe the promise they have made,
    don´t believe the world that they have built,
    don´t believe them...
    Make up your mind, don´t let life pass you by this time,
    don´t let them wash your brain again,
    don´t surrender...








     
     

    PRETEND
    This song talks about the necessity of pretending to get whatever we want in this such competitive society, and sometimes we need to perform some roles that we don´t like just to get something. But when we want to get a girl, then we can´t pretend and we´re ourselves, and it´s all so sad...
     

    I pretend that I am trying deep and closer
    to forget the ribbons of my soul
    but the time has made me feel that there´s no other
    way to show, to show your bones instead

    I´m always trying to pretend
    that this is just the way
    but when I am in front of you
    I can´t behave as I would like, it´s all so sad...

    I pretend that I am always laughing
    since I understand that everything is wrong
    I will send all my love to everybody
    just in case someone sends me too








     
     

    LITTLE PRINCESS
    This song talks about an ideal little princess who we pay all our attention to, and with we find out new and pleasant sensations.
     

    Hey, little princess, come into my arms and don´t look back
    come, little wonder, hold me tight and never go away

    Time to discover
    new sensations hidden by the sea

    And little princess, let me be the heroe of your dreams
    come, little wonder, let me feel that you are just like me

    Time to discover
    new sensations hidden by the sea
    look for me walking on the rainbow
    look for me waiting all this time

    Little princess, little wonder,
    give me just one chance...then I will understand...
    little princess, little wonder,
    lead me to your land...a place where we can stand...








     
     

    CRAZY LITTLE SNOWGIRL
    This song talks about opposite feelings, and the need to get away off them, looking for new senations in the dreams world and relaxing emotions like being flying.
     

    And if you tried to be more conscious
    it would be easier to forget...
    and if you wanted all or nothing
    my crazy little snowgirl (little snowgirl)

    But if I have to do what I am told
    I don´t want to go
    I feel as if I was dreaming
    And if I have to live inside the cold
    I will have to moan
    I feel as if I was flying

    Tell me something I can understand
    give me something I can feel
    the kind of things that you know I like
    my crazy liitle snowgirl (little snowgirl)

    I feel as if I was flying...
