Lyrics

Charlie's Song

Written By: Gustavo Balduino, Chal

Charlie was a sweet young boy
Who grabs destiny in his own hands
Time has pass, a military call
And momy said please stay

But momy, ain't I good enough
To be a savior of my state?

And he pick his heart
Puts in battlefield
What a brave young man
But how is sad his end

On momy's hand
A medal of honor
An easy handmade gift
Sonny life has just gonne
But how can I forget, how can I forget
A piece of metal, won't bring my Charlie back

No it won't...

Now my heart has gone
Major don't disturb
I will live alone
And don't need this U.S. flag

Now my heart has gone
Major don't disturb
Take this medal of honor
But bring my Charlie back

Country View

Written By: Gustavo Balduino, Chal

Yeah I'm here
And above me couldn't be a better scene
This blue bright sky

Far away from the city war
It's false dreams and it's cars I can feel
A nice deep breathe

It's a kind meeting with my own self
And my vision of this world been torn apart

Am I looking at you
Or looking at this country view
'Cause I think I can see you face now

I've been searching for you on my heart
In everyway, everyhow

I've been looking for a trace of you lesson
In this place, in this house

At this moment I sense pleasure
And beggining to understand how you look
How you care

Am I looking at you
Or looking at this country view
'Cause I think I can see you face now

Under This Tree

Written By: Gustavo Balduino, Chal

You know here in this place
Use to live my spirit
Hello my friend, so much I miss you
I'm think I dreaming

I lay my body down
Feel the cool breeze
Shades are all around
And there's no heating

My heart is filled with love
Can sense there's no pain when you
Under this tree

These are comfortable days
On your knees
As your leaves brush over my hair
I sense that I can be free

My heart is filled with love
Can sense there's no pain, no, no
May I, may I write you a song?
'Cause there's no other way to atone
For what I feel
Under this tree

Whisper's Gone

Written By: Gustavo Balduino, Chal

Whisper's gone and now I'm going out
Maybe you've done what you suppose
To had
Crazy boy go see what's going on there
Find it out, don't even look back
And I mean it

There were too many enemies on my back
But I don't care if I gonna have them
Shaken firmily
Save your soul don't try to put me
Put me on that
That game you started with my hand
And I mean it

Take it on, don't give them peace
After all is just like this
If you don't kill you will get killed
Take it on
Don't give them peace

The Sign

Written By: Gustavo Balduino, Chal

Once when I was a little boy child
They taught me not to tell
There was a secret
About a future in a hell

I brought a sign in my young mind
It was a little five point star
You can see it
On a helmet in a war

I can't tell the future on these days
There is a machine
Is terribly jammed
If this guitar
Could help a little, a little
But it got stuck
At the migthy power trigger

Give back my woman
Give me back my home
Give me back
My sided silent soul

Now I see their job
They don't want peace or love
But are seeking
For miles of mines of gold

But next to the oil
There is a fairy
She came here and sopke
That her friends elves
Are setting a meal for this robot

I can't tell the future on these days
There is a machine
Is terribly jammed
If this guitar
Could help a little, a little
But it got stuck
At the migthy power trigger

Give back my woman
Give me back my home
Give me back
My sided silent soul

Bad Way of Life

Written By: Gustavo Balduino, Chal

Discipline is not my life
But I don't care
Use to see your eyes, baby
Now I can't

Tell me that what I live isn't real
And there is a place for freedom
'Cause I can't fell

Used to cry like a man
Now I'm dying, dying like a shit

Save your words for preaching
'Cause I can't 'stand

This heart is useless without true faith

There's no homeland for a soldierman
Just a R.I.P. waiting in the end

No ray of light waiting, waiting...

Once again I depend on this guns, I depend
Once again I will pray, to have no scar, I will pray
It's a cold frosty metal that will tell
What really matters in this hell

And if there's a sunshine out there
Could be here
Instead this bullets, flowers, you, peace

Blues of No Way Walk (Traitor)

Written By: Gustavo Balduino, Chal

I'm riding on the streets
And don't know the reason why
My heart still not beating
My soul may not arise

May it be next to a mountain
May it be next to the wild
But this lonely rising sun
In a corner of downtown

Let it be, Let it be...
The blues of no way walk

And now I hit the road
In this rusty motorbike
Can't see no horizon
Can't no finish line

May it be my redemption
May it be a curse of mine
But I see your eyes are shining
In a sky full of stars

Let it be, Let it be...
The blues of no way walk

If you have thirsty for my blood
Better wait until the day I die
Prepare your heavy guns
'Cause my world, 'Cause my world...
Will end when my time pass by

Let it be, Let it be...
The blues of no way walk

Sweet Lorraine

Written By: Gustavo Balduino, Chal

Once I was no love believer at all
But after I met you it broke
That faith on bad things came down
Now I can say that i know

Sweet, sweet time, Lorraine
Sweet, sweet time, Lorraine
Sweet, sweet time, living by your side
Sweet, sweet time, Lorraine

You made all things change in my life
Mess with my heart and shake my mind
Don't ever say you will go
Whatever happens with this give me more

Sweet, sweet time, Lorraine
Sweet, sweet time, Lorraine
Sweet, sweet time, living by your side
Sweet, sweet time, Lorraine

I understand that things may pass
But this times with you couldn't be like that
They may last for ever and ever
I change my rythm if that matters

Whenever ilness come
Whenever sadness come
Don't give up of us

May you prays be trusted
May our will be done
And we live this life as a couple

Sweet, sweet time, Lorraine
Sweet, sweet time, Lorraine
Sweet, sweet time, living by your side
Sweet, sweet time, Lorraine
