  Letra   I stopped for a moment on the threshold of your house Over your bed, you were counting up your fears It’s a long way up, down to where I stand In turn my lips began whispering You will pay with a wound, for the wound that you forgot Over and over again All your dreams will fade, save for the one with the black jewelled moon   I lie awake with the necklace of your hands, woven tight with promises unkept. I heard the warning and I’ll take the blame   Oh (...)
  Letra   Thy beautiful hymn has flown deep into my veins With a voice clear as rain, you poured the poison to quench my need of you   And with time you made me yield So I became a fearing man   Blindness came to me as a dream. So did silence, save for your word You told me silence was golden, but it’s a cold stone that brought me to my knees   Now your tides of summer, they are gone And with them my trust in you Your command is not of my concern Though I trembled (...)
  Letra   And now I stare, I stare into the emptiness With roses wrapped around my ankles from moving too slow Like a wave that broke too soon And so she told me to stop right there In your hands? Said I, with a hint of grief Without a hint of truth Isn't irony such a good friend? And what you see is not who I am (there were surely thunders) What the devil doesn't take it's for god to claim I'm like the wolf, riding through the night I'm like the wolf, running up the hill Have you (...)

a Jigsaw - No More

  Letra   Not anymore do I remember the fleeting kiss of dawn Breaking on my back like the new born rain And no more do I sing of things better left untold A friend of mine said when a window closes, one always finds a door So I found the door to my house and I went inside And I built myself a window there When it was finally done, I carved my hands on the ledge Stood there for a while and went away My dear wife said “please don’t go” My dear wife said “don’t take that (...)
  Letra   It was a cold heart break that caught up with me. I was under the spell that as death grew near I could pretend it was hardly my prayer There’s a lonesome cry that parts with my mouth, when I confess That all I did was tending my shame for closing my hands Around my last word Around my last word I’ll confide in the roots down here: Entwined with my hope, my heart was a well Where I lost myself, where I lost myself, when I swam to the bottom   Right as rain, I (...)
  Letra   He was standing tall to the mirror When she came to warn him of the jailors And then he saw the tears rolling down her face “surrender my dear...” he schemed a plan He took a step, one single step outside and then he spoke You behind the oak tree You behind the oak tree, you’d better leave or die. From the bushes, curled up behind the fear in their eyes, With fright, they asked for his head So he ran back, through the house, the hills, the wind and the rain. There (...)
  Letra   Letra: Ary dos Santos/Joaquim Pessoa Música: Paulo de Carvalho 1978 Por montes e vales com frio de rachar, vai o lenhador trabalhar E põe no machado a força do braço que torna mais leve o cansaço Por pouco dinheiro, pinheiro a pinheiro vai-se o lenhador sustentando Cortando, cortando, sofrendo e suando, vai o lenhador trabalhando Vai vai vai O Machado vai e vem Cai cai cai Um pinheiro para alguém Quem abate o pinheiro do natal É alguém que trabalha e ganha mal (...)
  Letra   Postcards From Hell (B-Side of "Drunken Sailors & Happy Pirates" - Words & Melodies by a Jigsaw) All of you of whom I now sing Uninvited I carried your heart in my hands And often I did let you slip through my fingers But in the end, when you were staring at me from the waves beneath my feet I was left alone to my enemies I took your every advice and I set my eyes over yonder You knew the truth has two sides and both of them are lies, ah didn't you? So I began (...)
    Letra   One Right Lie I had just left the woods, piercing the night with a howl I carried a knife beneath my coat And told the pack not to wait too long It was dark, darker than any other night And it was cold, colder than my dreams Yeah my mother said there were days like this But she didn’t tell me they would be so long Come to your window girl Come to your window girl, oh Romeo wants a word with you La la la, la la she sang La la la, la la she sang Past the trees and the (...)
