Squint your eyes in front of me.
Roll your eyes if I don't see.
You thought I had no clue,
but I had all the clues.
Patronizing looks for me.
I turn around, you backstab me
and drain my energies out.
You wanted to take me down.

Why should I be sad now you're gone?
I waited for this for way too long.
You're not leaving, I'm taking you out
and banging the door after you!

I am spring cleaning
and you end up with the trash.
You thought it'd be hard
to suck your poison out.
You're not that essencial
though you think otherwise.
I am learning, you are losing
but I guess you're used to it
because you're just a loser.

Gossiping behind my back.
Making fun of what I like
as if you're a role model,
but you're just nothing.
Judging me in every step.
Leaving me aside along the way
saying it was for the best
so I learnt the hard way.

Why should I be sad now you're gone?
You always left me on my own.
You're not leaving, I'm taking you out
and this time I'm really done.

You claim I should regret it
but you're the one left empty
'cause you're just a loser!!!

Just a loser

They told me I was good enough
and my hazel eyes reflected the sun
but heavy is the head that wears the crown
and this king sank into his own throne.

Echoes bouncing in the back of my head
twisting the remainings of my sanity.
Words swirling through my mind.

I can't win, this is killing me.
Now I'm subject to comparisons
and the voices meant to set me free
now tie me down with no hesitation.
I tried to fly too near the sun
but just like Icarus I fell down
so now I'm just one more case
of someone who failed, disastrously.

Their voices, their fingers, their eyes on me.
I'm struggling, I can't breathe.
Illusions, expectations, failures, questions.
Heavy on me, I can't breathe.

They say I am way too nonchalant
when the results are under par
as if I could feel any different
when they say it's all my fault.

I've started to lose sleep at night
and I'm growing tired of arguments
and being pushed around the edge.

I can't win, this is killing me.

I tried to fly too near the sun
but just like Icarus I fell down
so now I'm just one more case

I was the best one according to them
and then I lost all the magic in me
and they talked into my head
all the fears and insecurities on earth
(and now I am this powerless!)

Voices

Another day, another scar.
Why didn't anyone tell me what trying implied?
With you, my world's poisoned.
Sinking every day, going down and under
almost reaching to the point of a daily headache
when every attempt is another mistake.

But I know giving up is not an option,
who said being happy didn't imply any effort?
Eventually we'll get to see the results.
If it's hard, it will take only a bit longer.
If we don't know what to do, we'll find the way.
Eventually it'll fall into place.
Eventually.

Another morning, again without a kiss.
Why can't I see the flaw in all this?
With you, I feel all alone again.
Swallowing my pride, being less than I am
so you catch up with me and we're equal
but honestly, you're too late.

But I know giving up is not an option,
who said being happy didn't imply any effort?
Eventually we'll get to see the results.

Eventually.

Some days I don't wanna fight.
Too many injuries in my brain.
A circle I can't escape from
but it may be different tomorrow.
It'll be okay for good.

I don't wanna go to sleep every night
if I don't believe in the power of my dreams
'cause it doesn't make any sense to close my eyes
if I don't care what I may see.

What's the point of going to sleep?

You may think that I'm a fool
but I do believe in dreams,
I can catch them with my bare hands
and they'll turn into gold.
I don't wanna close my eyes
if what I see is black,
empty and meaningless, lonely and realistic.
I do want to chase happiness.

They say I'm childish if I still hope
as if growing up implied losing your illusions
and I don't care if I have too many expectations,
why would I deny I still want to pursue a goal?

Why do you gotta keep me
numb as if I was a ragdoll?
It's always up to you
and what you choose to do.
If I'm on my way to hell
the road is paved with your name
and what seemed to be a blessing
turned into pure niggtmare.

If I'm not even good enough for you,
why do you force yourself to go through?
Maybe you're dreaming of a fantasy,
maybe your expectations are too high
but if I'm not what you're looking for
walk out of my life.

I don't know how to win,
I didn't sign up for this.
Why does the world have to become
World War III under our roof?
None of us can see clearly
but it's obvious this ain't the way
and I wish I could shake it,
the gut feeling telling me this ain't okay.

Out of my life

How many mornings
did you wake up wondering
if you're doing the right thing,
feeling you didn't fit in?
But life's a merry-go-round,
it challenges you to hold on tight
before you end up too far
from the meaning of life.

One day you open your eyes,
one day you realize...

You can also become the hero.
You can become one in a million.
You can be the getaway
for someone who's in despair.
You can be the one who saves me.
You'll be my one in a million.

How many nights
did you toss and turn
feeling unable to explain
why you're a stranger in your skin?
When a cycle is closed
you feel out of hope
wishing you were in a loop
so you didn't have to lose.

One day you open your eyes,
one day you realize...

You can also become the hero.
You can become one in a million.
You can be the getaway
for someone who's in despair.
You can be the one who saves me.
You'll be my one in a million.

One in a million

Just like an old scrapbook
full of silly but loving memories,
we're writing our own story
full of dreams and quirky smiles.
Who'd have thought that we,
among all the humans on earth,
will make it till the very end?
This time we didn't lose our way.

Here goes another page...

Too far from perfect,
but truly adorable in the end
and really the bestest
when looked through the right eyes.
Like a rainbow after the storm,
like the best line in a song
screamed at the top of our lungs.

We're collecting memories.
Every day is one more page,
a part of the story we're living,
another souvenir, another place.
Just like an old scrapbook,
we're building with our hands
a brighter future worth living
without excuses to breathe in.

Here goes another page...

Too far from perfect,
but truly adorable in the end
and really the bestest
when looked through the right eyes.
Like a rainbow after the storm,
like the best line in a song
screamed at the top of our lungs.

It feels like paradise,
an effort worth the try.
Call me cheesy, you may be right
'cause now I don't want to deny
after a while, after a long time
I smile without hesitating
and you take me by the hand
and it feels like a new beginning.

Too far from perfect,
but truly adorable in the end
and really the bestest
when looked through the right eyes.
Like a rainbow after the storm,
like the best line in a song
screamed at the top of our lungs.

Truly adorable

I'm learning to walk, step by step
and though I pretend I don't care
sometimes I'm truly afraid
'cause learning leads to mistakes.
I don't know who told me
it wasn't okay to be wrong.
I guess society does compel you to play the role.

If I made a mistake,
would you still stay?
If I was too proud
to admit I was wrong.
If I was this vulnerable,
wouldn't you walk away?

I'm a man, a brother, a daydreamer
who sometimes needs your shoulder
to lean on when nights get darker,
when I stop being a believer.
I don't know who told me
I should always fit in
those roles I don't care if they exist.

If I made a mistake,
would you still stay?
If I was too proud
to admit I was wrong.
If my mouth spoke too much,
more than what is needed.
If I was this vulnerable,
wouldn't you walk away?

If my heart sank away,
would you save it?
Would you care?
If I asked for help,
if I called out your name,
would you care?
Would you save me?

If I made a mistake,
would you still stay?
If I was too proud
to admit I was wrong.
If my mouth spoke too much,
more than what is needed.
If I was this vulnerable,
wouldn't you walk away?

About Me

Bio

I am an English-Spanish sworn and freelance translator, interpreter, convo teacher, academic researcher and lyricist. Although I have not been granted with a talented voice to sing, I was born with an amazing gift to write lyrics. Ever since I was a little kid I started writing my own songs, poems, short stories... That was my way to connect with my inner world and self, my way to express and to show how unique I was. All of my lyrics are quite personal and they are about my experiences, viewpoints, feelings, but somehow I think they need to be known for many people would connect and share the same feelings and emotions.
