Track Name: Tempo
O tempo é escasso, sejamos felizes. Corpo e alma não são para sempre. O amor é tudo o que há.
Track Name: Song For A Sister
Body aches, then you cry. Run away, wonder why.
Don ́t believe what he says, only you count the days,
for the pain you feel will go away.
And when that day arrives, no one will stop you.
Life will shine and you will find your place, peace, strength, love.
Track Name: Caminho
Um caminho tortuoso, bifurcado, sinuoso, e no entanto, muito claro;
sempre em frente sem olhar para trás.
Track Name: O Guardador De Rebanhos / The Keeper Of Flocks
O Guardador De Rebanhos / The Keeper Of Flocks (Music by André Matos, Words by Alberto Caeiro from O Guardador de Rebanhos)

Sou um guardador de rebanhos.
O rebanho é os meus pensamentos

E os meus pensamentos são todos sensações.
Penso com os olhos e com os ouvidos

E com as mãos e os pés

E com o nariz e a boca.

I’m a keeper of flocks.
The flock is my thoughts
And my thoughts are all sensations.
I think with my eyes and with my ears
And with my hands and feet
And with my nose and mouth.
Track Name: A Realidade Das Coisas / The Reality Of Things
A espantosa realidade das coisas
É a minha descoberta de todos os dias.
Cada coisa é o que é,
E é difícil explicar a alguém quanto isso me alegra,
E quanto isso me basta.

The astonishing reality of things
Is my discovery every day.
Each thing is what it is,
And it’s hard to explain to someone how much this makes me happy,
How much it’s enough for me.
Track Name: Vanguard
Once a upon a tale, a dream told to me,
by a ridiculous man. In an alien, worlds from here, lived the people,
In simplicity, in innocence and love.
Then into this world of innocent love, came the ridiculous man,
ridiculed by the civilization he came from, bringing seeds of knowledge, progress and of pain. He taught them for many seasons. Utopia was him aim.
They developed with their new reason feelings of envy and blame, concepts of guilt and shame. Trying to create the one perfect world, destroying the one which he found, his vision remain
out of reach, beyond time, and eden only realized in a dream.
Track Name: Se Me Va La Voz
Toda la gente te mira pasar, y cuando miro la luna te veo llegar.
Ah, se me va la voz, se me va la voz.
Todas las cosas se van.
Track Name: Earth
i thank You God for most this amazing
day; for the leaping greenly spirit of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes.
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun ́s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and love and wings; and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
