Joao Pedro Alves de Sousa I can't do that! I'll be betraying myself and Chinawoman, you cannot describe these fancies: For my own part I have never had a thought which I could not set down in words with even more distinctness than that which I conceived it! There is however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which are not thoughts... And to which is yet, I have found it absolutely impossible to adapt to language... Favorite track: To Be With Others.

Anna-Maria Very hard to choose a favourite from this record. I love the energy of the songs, and her voice! The lyrics are fresh, utterly ironic and smart. Simply amazing :) Favorite track: Woman is Still a Woman.

My phone is off I'm morning drunk The place is a mess I'm doing whatever I want No one's asking for dinner No one's getting upset I'm reminded again Of who I was when we met Vacation from love Vacation from love Vacation from love I'm on vacation How I've missed my friends How I've missed silence Those thoughts that just don't come When you're next to someone I'm writing a lot Catching up on smut My dreams have returned Telling me: watch out Vacation from love Vacation from love Vacation from love I'm on vacation You fell in love with a loner You fell in love with a stoner You want to see me everyday And still expect a boner Miserable couples on the bus We used to say: thank god that's not us Now I'm hiding out Trying to figure it out Vacation from love Vacation from love Vacation from love I'm on vacation I keep picturing your face In the hall at my old place When I'd open the door I couldn't ask for more But new silence brings Joy like once brought company When loneliness sets in Do it all again Vacation from love Vacation from love Vacation from love I'm on vacation It may be a sad fate For one who needs so much space But the wiring is done Maybe I'll find the right one Again I've done something wrong You're mad that I don't respond But I'm on vacation Vacation from love Vacation from love Vacation from love Vacation from love I'm on vacation

Good times don't carry over When comes tomorrow Keep wanting more Good times Gone with the sunrise When you get older When you're alone Don't carry on We met Before the sunset The finest night I've ever known But then When came the morning I looked around me No trace at all No trace No sense of comfort Outside the window Life carried on Good times don't carry over When you get older When you're alone They leave nothing at all So what good did it do me? To see your eyes shine in the dark I stayed awake all night And after all Look what I have got

I just want to be a lady On tuesday afternoons I just want to be a lady On tuesday afternoons Oh how many woods would a wood chuck chuck If a wood chuck could chuck wood There are some things in your nature That can forge your signature I've met the girls in boots By the dead end of the road There comes a point where every king Dreams of being exposed You can take my word on this Cause you know I am a pro When all is said and done A woman is still a woman La-la-la-la, La-la-la-la……. I know you're from the village And I want you to be proud But with your new found freedom There are some things not allowed Liberation was the first step But you're old enough to know Once you've made it to the field The only way's back in the hole I've tallied the confessions And I've seen what's at the end All long to shiver at the mercy Of the mighty hand It takes a PhD to know What apes all understand When all is said and done A woman is still a woman La-la-la-la, La-la-la-la……. The one who writes the book Is the likeliest to fall Part of being an adult Is the feeling you're a fraud Liberation was the first step But that too becomes a brand No matter where you pledge allegiance You'll always be damned Now you've shown that you can kill Be the peach upon the stem Now we've seen you chop the wood Leave that shit to someone else I just want to be a lady On tuesday afternoons But I'm back in office Wednesdays Call my secretary to book I've met the girls in boots By the dead end of the road There comes a point where every king Dreams of being exposed It may take a year or two But once you've gotten them unclothed When all is said and done A woman is still a woman La-la-la-la, La-la-la-la…….

Twice a year seems reasonable to me To take care of one's extramarital needs Rise above them They only grow So how to deal With the inevitable I have seen the result of discipline Makes a beast what would just been a whim Always have been one to endorse openness Now I fear some things best not discussed To be with others The need to be with others For just a couple hours To be with others The need to be with others You're the one I choose The best I ever knew How to make light of this thing As to not give it reign Like the rest Doesn't deserve to have power over us Dread to be a couple harboring secrets We are smart We can crack the formula Learn to laugh about the occasional fuck Always have been one to endorse openness Now I fear some things best not discussed To be with others The need to be with others For just a couple hours To be with others Without destroying ours

Tell me again Where goes the night A place untouched by time The streets I knew as a child It's all still there Where goes the night Our summers play on repeat Where goes the night In stone stands a kiss From an ancient time The kindness gone unseen Now in sight Sleep tight They're doing fine Where goes the night The seasons are outsmarted Where goes the night The leaves we thought departed They're alright Your eyes still gleaming in the dark When you were mine I'll always find Where goes the night

After what was said I can't help but sleep with one eye open The integrity of what we share Is now unconvincing The greatest love Both is and never was I carry on But I can't forget What was said After what was said The things you really think of me That's fine Cause I think that you're pathetic really Just like your family The words break free Much too easily My best friend I can't forget What was said There's a hole in everything And I have yet to see the proof Of friendship 'til the end And not 3/4 the way through Of love that perseveres When seen in close-up too My dear friend A heart cannot be true Not completely, so what to do? I've always left just as the leaves were changing hue Why give life the chance To make another mockery Of our dear romance Better to come and go Honor the weeds as they are meant to grow There's a hole in everything And there's nothing you can do It's always out with the old And in with the new No love without the whisperings So why pretend it's otherwise Better to be on the road Than in a house of cards and lies I rid myself of friendships With fungus on the rim Of love that had gone sour A merciful killing Rid of insincerities And rid of all poison I sent them all to hell And nobody was left The greatest love Both is and never was I carry on But I can't forget What was said

You to whom I once ran barefoot through the snow In a crowd I was blind to all But you How we left All our family and friends behind For each other but now we find Nothing to talk about Nothing to talk about Nothing to talk about The one you couldn't live without Nothing to talk about We change We stay the same We change We stay the same How your face Came to represent all I craved Gave the nameless at last its name Now a lifetime away How we left All our family and friends behind For each other but now we find Nothing to talk about Nothing to talk about Nothing to talk about The one you couldn't live without Nothing to talk about We change We stay the same We change We stay the same Je me souviens de ton regard étincelant En route pour notre nouvelle vie Alors qu'ensemble, seules au monde Nous n'avions plus besoin des autres Étendues dans cette chambre Maintenant occupée par d'autres nous Les gestes tendres qui ne laissent aucune trace Maintenant n'ont plus leur place Because we've nothing to talk about Nothing to talk about The one you couldn't live without Nothing to talk about We change We stay the same

Across from me, on the bus this afternoon A girl of age ninety, eyes of blue Peering out from a body changed too soon I saw the girl so charming in her youth Her hat reveals a woman of taste Now just to get off this bus is a torturous fate She'll slowly make the way back to her place An apartment where no one awaits Blue eyes unchanged The body aged Blue eyes you are my last witnesses now Blue eyes unchanged The body aged Blue eyes tell me what you wanted to be When you grew up Blue eyes once reflected in her mother's gaze On those summers as a child by the lake Blue eyes saw love's first embrace The boy down the road I wonder if he's alive today Young girls go laughing past on the road No one pays attention to the old But at least we know justice will be served In the end everyone gets their turn Blue eyes unchanged The body aged Blue eyes you are my last witnesses now Blue eyes unchanged The body aged Blue eyes tell me what you wanted to be When you grew up

Let's part in style While there's time Let's part in style You know why Before life kicks the last bit of dirt On our shrine While there's time Let's part in style I'll bring the champagne You taught me to like You'll bring your stories All lies We know well What time does to our kind So tonight Let's part in style
