What I Say
Gaia Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Eu sempre quis ser livre de me amar
Enquanto o mundo se quebrara
Me leva pro lugar
De harmonia e paz
Pra olhar além
A resiliência do ser
Pra me desejar prum outro lado
De vez

So what I say
What I say
What I say
So what I say, what, what

Eu acordei olhando pro teto
A luz acesa
O colchão no chão
Hoje é um novo dia pra mim
Cabeça erguida
Pronta pro show
Vida sem sabor sem desejo
É contraindicação pro seu final feliz
Samba e melanina pra um sorriso diamante
Ame sua vida meu amor

Chega nessa roda na balada
Chega quando roda na balada
Chega nessa roda na balada
Chega nessa roda na balada
Chega quando roda bem

Sei que quando hoje
Não reclame dessa vida
Não me leve embora não
Não me leve embora não
Não tenha más expectativa
Deixe que ou som da rua
Mexa com seu bem estar

So what I say
What I say
What I say
So what I say, what, what
What I say

Chega nessa roda na balada
Chega nessa roda na balada
Chega nessa roda na balada
Chega nessa roda na balada
Chega quando roda bem

Chega nessa roda na balada




Que o não rola
Chega nessa roda na balada
