Verse 1
I see the light coming through my space again
I never tried to keep her by my side and then
I could believe that this is meant to be and when
I found inside something I can't describe, insane

Chorus x 2
Love, hate, right, wrong, when I think I'm week I'm strong
Peace, war, black or white, when we want peace we fight
Did you ever tried, to find your peace of mind
Leave your worries behind
Find yourself your peace of mind

Verse 2
Perhaps i was born in the wrong time
Sometimes i feel like I was left behind
By the warriors in the 18th century
By the mothers of the ancient history
I wonder whom I could ever be
If I controlled time and reality
I wonder if we could ever become
What God left undone

Chorus x 2
Love, hate, right, wrong, when I think I'm week I'm strong
Peace, war, black or white, when we want to the peace we fight
Did you ever tried, to found yourself your peace of mind
Leave your worries behind
Find yourself your peace of mind

Bridge x 2
Peace (choir)
Peace of mind

In my heart
All you need (choir)
Its a kick start

Chorus x 2
Love, hate, right, wrong, when I think I'm week I'm strong

Peace of mind

Verse 1
Looking for a new beat
A new direction
Anxious to feel the heat
Sound, track, connection

Verse 2
Can you feel it inside of you?
Growing inside your mind
Disappearing in the haze
The truth you will find

Chorus x 2
You can't control it
Can't hold it
It's burning your skin
Don't fight it
Can't hide it, respect
connect with the the side effect

Verse 3
Here we are
In a journey of melodies
In a race of words
Enjoying the ride
This endless road
Of ideas and memories
Its a burst of feelings
You cannot hide

Verse 4
Creating, sharing, feeling
The world is our stage
Screaming, releasing
Just connect, engage
Embrace the journey
It’s yours to follow
Make it worthy
We’ll try again tomorrow

Chorus x 2
You can't control it
Can't hold it
It's burning your skin
Don't fight it
Can't hide it, respect

Frames of me

Verse 1
When I go through my memories
I see so many of me
Different people in different places
The same person in different fazes
I wonder in which one I was the happiest
Can’t remember, it all seems like a blur
So many expressions of many feelings
They all come and go like a whisper

Verse 2
I guess all the journeys and experiences
Had a reason to be
I can clearly see the differences
Of the person I used to be
It’s like they never happened
It’s like I never felt them
I guess I could never imagine
It would be deeply buried in my system

Chorus
Frames of me
Clues of who I used to be
Shades of me
Spread out there intensively
Frames of me
Versions of who I used to be
Shades of me
Lying under the sea

Verse 3
In each place I’ve been
A memory was born within
A smile, a gesture, a tear,
Confusion, concern and fear
Passion, love and luxury
Broken heart, pain and mystery
Even though they are left behind
I know they are printed in me
Every moment was a sign
Of who I was growing up to be

Verse 4
Although changes always scared me
I went with no regrets
Whatever I left behind
I brought it along with my cigarettes
Still feel this is not the end
I’m too small and the world is to big
I don’t need to understand
What was to be done, I did

Folded edge

Verse 1
Walking down the street
Looking for you
Remaking the steps
We did so many times to get to
A place we searched under cold weather
Where stars are bright
and we are light as a feather

Verse 2
No pain can get over me
No tears shared, now I can see
That being free is my priority
Blessed by the simple things
We really don’t need that much
We can make our own wings
Everything is in a reach of a simple touch

Chorus
Touch it, feel it
Don’t let it go unnoticed
Breath it, grab it
Live it to the fullest
Touch it, feel it
Right here, right now
Breathe it, grab it
It will be yours somehow

Verse 3
Defy logic, worlds expectations
Be the outsider, question the foundations
That decided who we’re supposed to be
To do, to feel and our reality
No one should tell you who you are
Only you know the past of your own scars
No one should tell you what do
The only one who knows the path is you

Verse 4
I know,
Not knowing can be unbearable
But it also can be beautiful
The unknow can take us far
Explore, find out who you are
Did you thought it would be easy?
Or maybe you’re just too busy
To see beyond the obvious
Give it a try, it can be glorious

Chorus
Touch it, feel it
Don’t let it go unnoticed
Breath it, grab it
Live it to the fullest
Touch it, feel it
Right here, right now
Breathe it, grab it
It will be yours somehow

Folded Edge

Make it last

Verse 1
Drowned in my thoughts, I can feel you in my skin
That touch that makes me burn within
Still remember the warmth of your kiss
Smoothly, gently, arising on my lips

Verse 2
Morning love, soft and careless
No rush to go back to the daily stress
No room for sadness, just pure happiness
I wonder how this love can be so flawless

Chorus x 2
Let’s make it last
(make it last forever)
This endless joy I feel
(We’re stronger together)
Let’s make it last
(make it through whatever)
No matter what might happen, still
(We will make it better)

Verse 3
Your breath on my neck
Your fingertips on my back
Running through my body slowly

Verse 4
My mind is far away
Hidden in the bubble we share
Don’t want to see the end of this day
I feel like I’m here and everywhere

Verse 5 or Bridge
Could this be only love?
Or a strong connection of souls
My feelings go beyond and above
To even try the find the loopholes

Chorus x 2
Let’s make it last
(make it last forever)
This endless joy I feel
(We’re stronger together)
Let’s make it last
(make it through whatever)
No matter what might happen, still
We will make it better

Make it Last

Gritos mudos

Verso 1
Sinto me vazia
Neste Mundo perdido numa sinfonia
Não espero entendimento
Dos que respiram tirania

Verso 2
Subo as escadas
Respiro um novo ar
Renovo a minha maneira de pensar
Reflito no que me leva a acreditar
Que este sobressalto não vai acabar

Refrão
São os gritos mudos
Que me impedem de falar
Preciso de levitar
Encontrar o meu lugar
Sentimentos inaudíveis
Projetos inacabados
Gestos impercetíveis
Perdidos em recados

Verso 3
O meu brilho já turvo
Com as palavras rasgadas no ar
Num poço sem fundo
Os meus gritos vão ficar
Suspiro, deixo me estar

Refrão x 2
São os gritos mudos
Que me impedem de falar
Preciso de levitar
Encontrar o meu lugar
Sentimentos inaudíveis
Projetos inacabados
Gestos impercetíveis
Perdidos em retratos

Promise Land

Verse 1
I walk on fire
But my feet won't burn
I have faith, desire
But still a lot to learn
So, I open my arms
To a strange desire
Don’t know where it leads me
I just want to go higher

Chorus
I have nothing
Nothing to say
I'm on my way
To the promise land
I have nothing
Nothing to lose
Take my hand
Let's hit the promise land

Verse 2
Not living for tomorrow
Living for today
Grab my arm, pull me in
Tell me all, make me stay
Am I right or wrong?
Am I weak or strong?
Does it really matter?
Let's be ignorant

Bridge
Pretending not to know, not to understand
Leave it to the silence
It's only the beginning, not the end.

Chorus x 2
I have nothing
Nothing to say
I'm on my way
To the promise land
I have nothing
Nothing to lose
Take my hand
Let's hit the promise land

Hurricane

Verse 1
It was a Sunday morning
The sun was burning my eyes
It’s confession day
I need to let it out of my mind
Heavy secrets
Heavy thoughts burning inside

Verse 2
I feel the rain falling
Slowly touching my skin
I hear a voice calling
It's my soul within

Pre-Chorus
It tells me to hold on to a feeling
So many of them
They burst inside like a spiral
Can't control it, I'm a hurricane

Chorus
It's like a hurricane
I'm a hurricane
A mix of feelings and shame
I live in a frame
Can't release this pain
I'm a hurricane


Verse 3
No
Nobody can save me
Only I can stop this game
No
Don’t need to worry
I feed on this flame
If I let it go
I feel free
The voice within my soul
I have eyes but I can't see

Pre-Chorus
Feelings
So many of them
They burst inside me like a spiral
Can't control, I'm a hurricane

Chorus x 2
It's like a hurricane
I'm a hurricane
A mix of feelings and shame
I live in a frame
Can't release this pain
I'm a hurricane

About Me

Bio

Music has always been an integral element in myself. Always been a mechanism of thought and defense.
With only 3 years old I have tried to hum the music “What’s up ? " of 4 Non Blondes, delighted with the melody and the voices that formed around musical instruments.
I was 10 years old when I discovered my passion for singing, realizing that I had a world to explore: the World of Music, with all that that entails.
I started by doing auditions, including one for the musical "The Girl of the Sea" by Filipe La Feria, and tried to improve my "new voice " alone, accompanied by songs that somehow identified with me .
Past few years, 5 persons agreed to merge their various musical talents and styles, through the creation of a band, ALLMA PROJETC. A very particular and unmistakable original band whose sound is born from the fusion of various styles such as Rock, Funk, Soul, Blues, Reggae, Ska, among others.
Concerts were emerging all over Portugal, mostly in Porto, Póvoa de Varzim, Amarante, Aveiro, Lisbon, etc. As well as participation in various competitions, including the 2011 RRW where we reached the finals. This adventure gave us more enriching experience level of performance, songwriting and musicality.
Together with Sergio Nascimento (ALLMA guitarist) came an acoustic format (acoustic guitar and vocals) , with originals and covers interpretations of musical landmarks as Marvin Gaye , Sade , Bob Marley , Rui Veloso , Sara Tavares , among others.It was with this project that i really started developing my skills as a songwriter and realizing how much passion and love i had for it.
In this journey, I was presented to a prestigious Dj and Producer – ERIC FARIA - who introduced me into Deep House/Soulful style work, with whom I already own original songs and live performances in clubs and bars.
Being in a project with the opposite ALLMA musical style taught me to express my musicality differently. This musical fusion has not only contributed to my growth as a vocalist, singer and songwriter, but also causes a constant change in the way I see and absorb the music, as I identify myself as I writer and how I express my feelings, revolts, moments of madness and messages I want to send to people all over the world through music. All this mutation also involves a connection with the "listeners” who somehow also identify themselves with the messages in my themes.
Music is, to me, a world that is constantly changing and evolving, which should be explored by all musicians and lovers of music, whatever the style with each login. This so far has been my musical path, and full of amazing experiences that changed my view on music and have been contributing to my vocal and musical development.
My motto is: What's next?
