SHE SAYS
This song talks about sizing the day and enjoy all the pleasures that life gives while you feel young... we shouldn´t be all day regretting and thinking of the past, of the things we didn´t do... we must realize those moments of our lives that we are living just what we just dreamt one day. One voice (our conscience) suggests that we shouldn´t sleep all day and waste our lives and our time, and we should feel our life, and the beautiful things it gives us.

I am trying to remember the echoes of my dreams
I am now getting over the mistakes of the past
trying to get conscious of all these wasted years
looking for sensations I´ve never felt before
but she says: aaahh… the miracles of a young life
she says: aaahh… delivering luck tonight

Listening to the silence, I´m listening to the sea
thinkin´ ´bout the feelings that faded with the wind
but she says: aaahh… the miracles of a young life
she says: aaahh… delivering luck tonight

She says: such a beautiful life to die so young
she says: such a beautiful day to stay home tonight
such a strange love, such a magic place
such strange eyes telling what you should do right now!!!

I´m staring at the rainbow, I´m staring at the lights
I´m staring at the colours in a kaleidoscope night
but she says: aaahh… the miracles of a young life
she says: aaahh… delivering luck tonight

but she says: aaahh… the miracles of a young life
she says: aaahh… delivering luck tonight

She says: "Now you´re living just what you dreamt one day"
she says: "you´re so lucky, you would not regret again”


THAT´S JUST ME
This is a rebel song, where I try that everyone can understand me... I can´t understand why it´s always the same and close people don´t mind whatever I do... and they don´t know that writing music is for me very important... if they only believed in what I say and in what I sing, they would find out that that´s just me!

I cannot understand the way you think I am
and what is right for you is just not good for me

Nothing changes
It´s the same again

If you knew what I mean when I tell you how I feel
If you knew what I mean when I keep on doing this
Will you still believe in what I say?
Will you still believe in what I´m singing now…
what I´m doing now… that´s just me

I cannot understand the meaning of your life
I cannot understand a life without a song









This song talk about autobiographical feelings, like the most of the lyrics. It talks about saying "yes" to everything, and never say no.It also talks about realizing of things that happen to us in the right moment when they happen to us, as we usually remember good times when we feel down. It talks about those moments when your dreams come true and everything you do in your life is worth, then you feel identified with your aims.
 

Sí, di siempre que sí
No dudes un instante, confía, no es tarde

Y es que así, yo me he fijado en ti
Para hacer este viaje tan largo y extraño...
sin final

Y ahora aquí, ya ves
Que después de tanto tiempo intento ser
Feliz, haciendo lo que más quiero que es vivir
Así: caminar sobre mis sueños y sentirme bien,
Derrochar cientos de notas de color

Y es que en fin, intento conseguir
Que todo sea redondo, perfecto, distinto...
nunca igual








IT´S NOT EASY
This song talks about getting away from the world where we live, and look for someone who also wants to get away with...

Come to me, we can get away
The world is upside down
Running fast in the road of life
Missing you tonight

Into this world of science we are thrown
So we´re still waiting for someone to get away with
We need to find a way to hide the trash,
forget the past and let this time remind us of today

Look for me in the roundabouts
Dancing on the wire
Look for me in the gossip tongues
Wandering alone

It´s not easy
It´s not easy
It´s you






LET IT BE TONIGHT
This song talks about spending tonight as if it was the last night, and let everything flow, and enjoy up until the sunshine...

I´m here to close my eyes
and let it flow somehow
I´m here to stay all night
until the sunshine, until you leave me

Come here, stay with me
and make me feel right now
Come here, stay all night
until the sunshine, until you leave me

Tonight don´t say you´re sorry
there´s no time to waste,
you´re fine, you´re even crazy
doing this, but let it be tonight

…and let it flow somehow
I´m here to stay all night
until the sunshine, until you leave me

Right now I´m going to say
what you don´t want to hear
Right now I´m going to wait
until the sunshine, until you leave me


 


BRAND NEW WAY
This song is a song that talks about looking for a way out, a new way in the hard jungle of pop and life itself, taking a personal attitude and believe in what you think, and do things on your own...

I am laughing
Since the world, since the world for me is too small
And this day, and this day laughs with me too
I´m not waiting, I´m not waiting over you
I´m not drowning, I am living on my own

...and maybe I´m not here
I´ll try to disappear
(And) build a brand new way

I´m not a cool boy
In a cool world
(and I´m) trying to find myself
In a cool place
But I still can´t find my way

I´m just a fool boy
In a fool world
(and I´m) trying to find myself
In a fool place
Maybe I can find my way


 


SHOWGIRL(The Auteurs)

I took a showgirl for my bride…
Thought my life would be righter
took her bowling, got her high,
got myself a showgirl bride
Took a job on the side,
in a health shop keeps me well now
got my mantra for life,
got my karma and a showgirl bride

All my life
all her life
all our life
I married a showgirl and that´s for life (2)

She can´t work in the wintertime
I can´t work anytime now
go to libraries all the while
looking for a notice by my time

I took a showgirl for my bride…
Sprinkled stardust on my wife
took her bowling, got her high
got myself a showgirl bride (2)
don´t you recognize us? (2)


 


NEW EMOTIONS (Ruth "Vacaciones")
This song talks about finding out and tasting new sensations that wrap around our whole body, about the effects of drugs...
 

Babe, put a space ship in your mouth
With the planets all around
We´ll take a picture

Babe, put a rocket in my eyes
With a rainbow near besides
Let´s write a story

Feeling new emotions growing me inside
feeling new sensations growing me tonight

Babe, like the water in the lake
With the fishes singing loud
I´m bubbling to you

Girl, going shopping with your mum
Like the colour of the sun
A sleeping T-shirt


 


THE KISS I DIDN´T GIVE YOU YESTERDAY
This is a song of love. The chorus reminds us of the magic of unfinished stories. There always must be a spark, new adventures to find out, dreams to come true, wished places to visit (the Scottish Highlands) and enjoy the good sensations that life and love give us...
 

The kiss I didn´t give you yesterday
This is why I am loving you today

Tonight we´ll meet again
You´ll tell me some stories
And we´ll dress the night in blue and green

The things we said today
The things we´ll do tomorrow
All the places we´d like to see

I cannot wait too long
I cannot get you off my mind
Tonight I want to get away with you

I´ll take you to the sea
I´ll lead you to the Highlands
And we´ll sleep until the rain wakes us up


 


SHE´S REALLY A STAR
This song is dedicated to all those people who are stars and they don´t know they are... it´s a hymn for the unknown artist...

She´s really a star (3) and I´ll let you know
(you know that I loved you)

And you know that it´s true, babe
you are a star, babe
you´re really a star

You know that it´s love, babe
you are a star, babe
and it´s so beautiful, so never leave (again)
