Country gentleman The singer is out of melodies But the band keeps playing on By the time he found a reason I was dancing on my own And then it comes that feeling As memories unfold Of everything you’ve never seen and still you miss so much If you believe then nothing’s wrong Hiding in the sweet lies of my song If you don’t know where you belong Just pick up the pieces and be gone! She is just a sailor A sailor without a boat She left too many dreamers Always with some kind of love The blue light’s her companion The full moon in her eyes She won’t be anybody’s queen even if just for a night We’re not here to stay It’s all some kind of joke The beat will keep us swinging into the nothing of it all But do not be so fearful And do not be so vain Everybody’s drowning too They just don’t complain
2.
What needs must be Every time you leave Could be the last goodbye Don't be waiting for your invitation to come What needs must be But everything is now And you're building hope and expectations alone When I lay me down Light my way Save myself from me again The nights you let me in The days you let me out Feels like waiting for my resurrection to come Everything you need Might be what you found Just dancing to that rock n roll station alone I used to wake up every dawning Thinking bout what could have been But I'm done with everything If you keep me company In the morning In my sleep
3.
In every street The time is right If you realize what it takes not to wait Take me out Take me to the town where my fears have no name Poets lie This war isn't mine and it feels just the same Shine a light I'll be still alive when the day finally breaks You can wonder bout tomorrow You can wonder bout just everyone in every street Making up some reason to believe Lay me down Listen to the sound of the waves on my face Be here now Don't change Anyhow This is it It's all there is

Moonlight on my mind I heard of an ocean Made of lovers' spleen I've been a dolphin there I made the scene And I've got her in the moonlight on my mind There's gonna be some trouble Gonna be some pain Gonna be some distress on my way But I've got her in the moonlight on my mind And if you see me kinda worried And if you see me almost out of reach I got so much more to be And I'm sure you'll come with me I dreamed of a teardrop I dreamed to make them pay I dreamed of dream where we could be anything
5.
Until she comes I've been to seven kingdoms I've been to where the oceans meet Might be the end of the line for me Until she comes I've seen the jewels burning I've seen the glory and the dreams That brought the end of the line for me Until she comes Might be the end of times Might be the end of everything Might begin it all for me (as you see) There's too much hate around here I wanna dive beyond the sea Where is the end of the line for me? Until she comes

Notas do quarto 

Stillness não é exatamente um disco da quarentena, já que nenhuma música foi composta nesse período. Estas 5 canções já tinham sido escritas antes do terceiro disco do Fish Magic (“Just a light away”) ser lançado. Elas tinham essa linguagem mais acústica, folk, country, e por conta disso não encaixavam ali. Elas seriam agrupadas mais adiante em outro formato.

O Regis Damasceno (Cidadão Instigado, Mr. Spaceman) e eu até tivemos a ideia de montar um projeto paralelo com o Andre Travassos do Moons e lançar algo conjunto nessa linha. Com a pandemia, essa ideia ficou mais distante…

Neste período de isolamento, o Regis começou a trabalhar no disco novo do Mr. Spaceman e me chamou para escrever várias letras. Isso me motivou a trabalhar também no que seria o meu EP folk.

E aqui estamos.

Apesar de não ter sido composto agora, sinto que as músicas se conectam muito bem com o que estamos vivendo. Poderiam perfeitamente terem sido escritas nesse período muito doloroso.

Pessoalmente, perdi um dos meus melhores amigos para o câncer em abril e, mais recentemente, nossa cachorra faleceu. Porém, não queria que o disco tivesse essa aura sofrida. Queria que ele fosse sereno, apesar das dores. O lírio partido na capa talvez represente essa dualidade.

O disco tem as participações muito especiais do Regis e do Andre, até para manter viva a ideia do nosso projeto.

Entreguei as músicas para o Clayton Martin (Cidadão Instigado) mixar e masterizar, o que ele fez lindamente. Espero que essas músicas tragam algum tipo de conforto para quem as ouvir, assim como trouxeram para mim.
