BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

The encounter of a brazillian singer/songwriter and an american producer/guitarrist makes an interesting mix of sounds and ranges from the innocence of a child-like sound, going through bossa nova and brazillian funk, to some songs that could be played in the busiest dance clubs of New York.

Lyrics

Forgive me my friend

Written By: Lorena Sa

There are times when blinds around your eyes are shut
And you miss a hundred things surrounding you
You hurt the friends that mean the most to you

THere are days when a hundred different things just blind you
And listening to a song reminds you
Those days when you had a real friend for you to trust

Forgive me my friend if I hurt you
not prioritizing something so special
Forgive me my friend if I hurt someone so special like you

Memories can be vague and forgettable not mines
You were there during break ups, I took you for granted
don't know why

Free my Senses

Written By: Lorena Sa

Free my Senses to realize the world
It's all around so look around and you'll see
what it's doing to me

I've been feeling all my life
there's a passion here inside
and a hope that dreams come true

I remember all the sores
in my hands and feet and heart
When the No melts you away

Giving up is not an option when you know there's something else to it

Free my Senses to realize the world
it's all around so look around and you'll see
what it's doing to me

And some people try so hard
to belong denying their hearts
That is when society rules

There's a model we must follow
and accept and be so shallow
Till our souls break this away
