"I've been here before"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz


Letra/Lyrics:

I've got this crazy feeling
Will you love me one more time?
I wonder if we'll make it through the night.
Am I worth fighting for?
Don't you want me anymore?
I think I've been missing
All the things we never said

Staring at the mirror
I can't find what's left of me
There's nothing here to see
Everything is gone
Staring at the window
I can't see you anymore

I've got the strangest dream
Can you stay just for a while?
In my dreams I'd walk the world
I would walk a thousand miles
Can you just hear me talkin'
How sad I feel?
Is this "forever" real?

Staring at the mirror
I can't find what's left of me
There's nothing here to see
Everything is gone
Staring at the window
I can't see you anymore
Have you been here before?
Have you been here at all?

(Marina Ferraz)



"Onde estás"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz e Helder Godinho


Letra/Lyrics:

Perguntei ao mar
Onde te viu,
Perdi-me no céu a procurar
Por ti.

Estivesses aqui
Como nunca estás…
Como foi que te perdi?
Só quero voltar atrás!

Onde estás?
Onde estás?
Onde estas?
Diz-me onde estás!

E nada está escrito
E já não faz sentido
No teu adeus sem aviso
Devia ter-te pedido... ter-te pedido...

Fiquei sem saber,
Sem nada pra me agarrar,
Lutei para não me perder
E continuo sem te encontrar.

Onde estás?
Onde estás?
Onde estás?
Ohohohohoh
Diz-me onde estás!

Se há um só lugar
Para mim e para ti,
Eu vou lá voltar,
Eu quero estar aí.

Onde estás!
Onde estás!
Onde estás?
Ohohohoh
Diz-me onde estás
Quero estar onde estás
Diz-me onde estás.

(Marina Ferraz & Helder Godinho)


"Believe"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz




Letra/Lyrics:

It may seem I'm giving up
Cause I live inside my shell
But I'm still wide awake
Even though this livin' hell.

How many times in a row
Can we love and lose the game?
Never learning how to grow,
It always hurts the same.

But even through it all
I still believe
And  even when I fall
I know I will succeed
There are stars above
And I've got some dreams within
I believe in love
And I'm never giving in

I know what you think of me
I'm too broken to be healed
No one looks closer to see
My heart is an open field

How many times can we look
And see life running away?
Can I get back what they took?
Will I heal my heart someday?

But even through it all
I still believe
And  even when I fall
I know I will succeed
There are stars above
And I've got some dreams within
I believe in love
And I'm never giving in

Yes, I believe in love
Like every dreamer do
And I won't give up
Until I find you...

(Marina Ferraz)



"This madness"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz


Letra/Lyrics:

I hear so many words
But I don't understand
Are they supposed sooth
Or make amends?

Are they supposed to heal
Any broken hearts?
Are they supposed to feel
When we break apart?

I don't understand this world
Ain't it a mess?
I can hear my heart and soul
That's why they call it madness
Is this a crazy thought?
Is it sad or is it true?
The world won't understand
But I need you to...

The river flows in silence
It's all peace and harmony
I wanted to be like that
But I just can't be...

I'm too brittle, I break too easy
Will you ever see?
Won't you find that it's too sleazy
How lost that I can be?

I don't understand this world
Ain't it a mess?
I can hear my heart and soul
That's why they call it madness
Is this a crazy thought?
Is it sad or is it true?
The world won't understand
But I need you to...
  
They keep pushing me away
They don't hear a word I say
And in silence I hope and pray
While raising my hands
Will you save my day
Will you understand
This madness...

I don't understand this world
Everyday loving less and less
I cannot live like that
That's why they call it madness
Is this a crazy thought?
Is it sad or is it true?
The world won't understand
But I need you to...


(Marina Ferraz)



"Turn to stone"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz



Letra/Lyrics:

I waited for so long for you
That the skies fade down to grey
I had nothing to hold on to
Anyone to guide my way

When the stars fall down from above
I shouldn't wish the things I do
I pray for us and for our love
I close my eyes and picture you

I'll turn to stone someday
Waiting here, on the ground,
I'm screaming but they say
You cannot hear a sound
I'll turn to stone, you'll see
I can't be moved from here
Nothing will ever change
I will wait for you...
Until I turn to stone

The day you left me behind
Skies were all bright and clean
My tears clouded my mind
How could you be so mean?

But I heard "don't be sad,
We'll meet again, someday"
I believed what you said,
I would have waited, anyway!

I'll turn to stone someday
Waiting here, on the ground,
I'm screaming but they say
You cannot hear a sound
I'll turn to stone, you'll see
I can't be moved from here
Nothing will ever change
I will wait for you...
Until I turn to stone

I'll turn to stone, waiting
I'll turn to stone, you'll see
If you never come

I'll turn to stone someday
Waiting here, on the ground,
I'm screaming but they say
You cannot hear a sound
I'll turn to stone, you'll see
I can't be moved from here
Nothing will ever change
I'll  wait for you...
Until I turn to stone

I'll turn to stone
I'll turn to stone
I'll turn to stone

(Marina Ferraz)


"No empty hearts"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz




Letra/Lyrics:

There are no rules
And no stories to guide us through
There's no one to say
What we should be or how we should pray

So we walk, step by step,  in this world
And we fight our troubles one by one

There's no place to hide
And no place to go from the storm outside
There is nothing behind
There's only roads we have to go by

And then we walk, we fall, we hurt and we love
Learning hard truth that no one else knows

But even though the lies and hard times
There's no empty hearts nor empty minds

We can beat the storms that stand in our way
We are strong enough to stand up tall

But even though the lies and hard times
There's no empty hearts nor empty minds

Cause even when it hurts we stay alive
There's no empty hearts nor empty minds


(Marina Ferraz)



"Find me a reason"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz



Letra/Lyrics:

I try to find some reason
To the words I never said
To all the things I lost
And to those I never had

Where were my senses
When I watched you go
Without telling you
Without letting you know

Find me some reason
For all the unspoken words
Silence is a prison
A prison that I chose
Find me some reason
For all this pain inside
I should have told you how I feel
When you were by my side

There is an empty lonelyness
Where the stars once shone
And there is nothing left
I am alone ...

An open door still stands
An empty bed still calls
And I lay down with empty hands
As my heart falls


Find me some reason
For all the unspoken words
Silence is a prison
A prison that I chose
Find me some reason
For all this pain inside
I should have told you how I feel
When you were by my side

Another day, another season
And I lay lonely in my bed
Trying to find some reason
For the words I never said

(Marina Ferraz)


"So goodnight"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz



Letra/Lyrics:

The moon said goodnight
And the waves replied
There's no reason to fight
So, goodnight...

Dreams await tonight
Follow them, my dear
You shall have no fear
So, goodnight

Let me sing this song
As you fall asleep
You are not alone
Please know this.
Let me hold you near
In you quiet smile
It's ok, my dear
I will stay here for a while

Here tonight
The stars said goodbye
But please don't cry
It's alright

I will be your light
As the shades begin
Dreams are way within
So, goodnight

Let me sing this song
As you fall asleep
You are not alone
Please know this.
Let me hold you near
In you quiet smile
It's ok, my dear
I will stay here for a while

Everything's alright
Let me hold you near
You shall have no fear
I am here tonight

So, goodnight

(Marina Ferraz)


"Across this wall"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz



Letra/Lyrics:

There is no pointed gun
Towards our face
Nor ropes to shun
Or to unlace

But it's dark here
Everything is unknown
And so I  fear
I can't make it on my own

Can you hear me screaming
Across this wall?
Are you there believing
Won't you let me fall?
Darkness seems to blind
My eyes with loneliness
So can you please find
A door to happiness?

Is there a window of hope?
'Cause I can't see the light
Is there a door to elope
Or someone to make me fight?

Will someone open the door?
Will the walls fall down for me?
I don't think I want this anymore
I need to be free...

Can you hear me screaming
Across this wall?
Are you there believing
Won't you let me fall?
Darkness seems to blind
My eyes with loneliness
So can you please find
A door to happiness?

Someday the cage may fall
But now it is here...
Can you hear me call?
Will you please be near?

(Marina Ferraz)


"In memory"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz




Letra/Lyrics:
I know exactly how to hide
My thoughts within my heart
I keep this secrets way inside
So I'll never fall apart

But way within I feel the pain
And in my veins my tears run free
Was it her? Does she remain
In the corners of me?

Was long ago and far away
Was long before I even knew
I was the guy who couldn't stay
She was  a girl passsing trough
It was so close and went so far
Between dreams and reality
We were so much and now we are
Just broken path in memory

What if she really was the one
And that was my only chance?
Will I never find someone
To live a new romance?

I can't say if this is love...
Or if it will only fade away
I simply wish to the stars above
To make me happier someday

Was long ago and far away
Was long before I even knew
I was the guy who couldn't stay
She was  a girl passsing trough
It was so close and went so far
Between dreams and reality
We were so much and now we are
Just broken path in memory

(Marina Ferraz)


"Broken dreams"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz




Letra/Lyrics:


The sky is clear and blue
The road is dark and mean
Two steps ahead of you
Let's not make a scene

I wanna go, you want the same
We should have left before
Excuses were so lame
There are no words anymore

We tried to forget
We tried to forgive
We were forsaken
But we couldn't leave
It was what it was
It means what it means
How can we live
These broken dreams?

It was a fairytale
Those end up too
We were meant to fail
It's sad but it's true

We can't fight all the rest
But you are in my heart
I wish you all the best
Though we're now apart

We tried to forget
We tried to forgive
We were forsaken
But we couldn't leave
It was what it was
It means what it means
How can we live
These broken dreams?

We tried to forget
We tried to forgive
We tried to be better
We tried to be free
It was what it was
It means what it means
How can we live

These broken dreams?

(Marina Ferraz)



"Empty the world"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz e Helder Godinho



"Shelter"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho

Letra por: Marina Ferraz e Helder Godinho

Let me tell you something you should have known
If you can't take the pain then don't come running to my door
You wanna live inside a box of gold
But the world don't care anymore

Should I empty the world?
Should I empty the world?
Should we hide in a made up paradise?
Should I empty the world?

Let me put it clearly so you can try to see
You can't play with people or change what they say
You may wanna try, to fight, to run, to breathe
But the world paints in all shades in gray

Should I empty the world?
Should I empty the world?
Should we hide in a made up paradise?
Should I empty the world?

Let me ask you this: can you run from it all?
Do you understand no one cares if you fall?
If you don't see it, you're already on the floor.

Should I empty the world?
Should I empty the world?
Should we hide in a made up paradise?
Should I empty the world?


(Helder Godinho & Marina Ferraz)

"Mais para dar"
Música por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz
Interpretação: Carla Ribeiro

- Festival da Canção 2014 -




"Shelter"
Música e voz por: Helder Godinho
Letra por: Marina Ferraz



I keep screaming in my head
No voice returns the call
The emptiness is all I ever had
But is it all?

I keep watching my reflection
I'm just about to fall
I know I've lost my direction...
But is it all?

Shelter
Among those  who cry?
Will I find shelter
Is it worth the try?
I need a helping hand
I won't lay down and die
I need some shelter
To get by

I keep looking up above
There's no One to hear my call
I know I have things to work out
I just need to hold on

Shelter
Among those who cry?
Will I find shelter
Is it worth the try?
I need a helping hand
I won't lay down and die
I need some shelter

To get by

 (Marina Ferraz)
