( By Diogo Brown & paul constantinides)
(Portuguese)

Estrelas alteradas
Noite, longa estrada
E Cadê você?
Cadê você?

Entrei na mão errada
Cai numa cilada
E Nem reparei
O que fazer?

Noites sem você
Dias também
Onde vou caber
Quando é que eu vou poder
Denovo te ver
E ser eu mesmo
Outra vez?


Estrelas alteradas
Noite, longa estrada
assim nao da pra ser
se nao tem voce

Entrei na mão errada
Cai numa cilada
E Nem reparei
O que fazer?

Então veja bem
Como é que eu vou seguir
Sem você , Como é que eu vou fazer
Dor que quase cala, nao se acaba
me arrasa, nao me diga agora que voce nao vem...

perdeu o telefone mas se o coracao ta bem
na rota da vida tem males que vem para bem
Porque quando eu pedi amor
O mundo me trouxe você
na rota da vida tem gente
que vem para valer ...

( english )
altered stars , night long way
and where are you ?
where are you ?
i took the wrong way fell in a big ambushi didn' t even repair
what i'm gonna do!?

night and day without you
where i'm gonna fit ?
when i'm gonna be able
to see you again
and be my self one more time....
altered stars
night long way
i can't do it like that
if i don't have you
i took the worng way
fall in a big ambush
i didn' t even repair
what i'm gonna do!?

take a look how i'm gonna continue
without you , how i'm gonna do?
a pain that almost make me quiet, never ends pain that kill me , don't tell me that you don't come ...

You lose your cell phone , but if your heart it's peace on the rote of life some of the bad things becomes good things because when i ask for some love, the world brought me you the rote of life some peaple come to stay ...

FE , TEMPERO E AMOR

Written By: Diogo Brown


FE , TEMPERO E AMOR


Eeee prepara o Feijao , que eu vou trazer lenha para o fogao
e tempero legal , eu vou trazer as ervas do matagal
viva a agua da fonte , a agua que eu trouxe pra lhe saciar
e a rosa que cai , eu vou tirar o espinho pra lhe dar uma

as vezes num tempero, diz que existe algo mais
e quando dois tao juntos , nada importa , nada mais

E que coisa legal , a sua pele e branca e alma e negra...
Eh tocando o tambor, todo mundo dancar eu trago alegria
bem melhor que chorar , sorrir entao cair em seus bracos de anjo
sei que conforme for , eu levo a minha vida do jeito que da....
