Nelly Furtado Picture Perfect

Picture perfect a life that you saw in a magazine

Or maybe a travelling book

Wanted to get on that plane and fly away

cause you are a rock star deep down inside

You walk with a swagger, got nothin’ to hide

Cigarette in your mouth, a cuff on your jeans

Your sideburns are perfect, you’re a perfect and lean

So you made an oil painting to inmortalize

All of the hope and vision in your eyes

In your leisure coat and cowboy hat

North American records and so much to bat for

Please bring me along

Please bring me along

Because I want to see everything you have to offer me

Get a job lifting cement

Oh it’s so dry when it rains it gets wet

And the village was great, now it’s a suburb

You left behind half of all that you had learnt

Relearn a couple things along the way

The thrift shop so clean all for half what you’d pay

So you try everything on, on for size

Drop top your Camaro and go for a ride

Please bring me along

Please bring me along

Because I want to see everything you have to offer me

And I don’t mind to sit here and waste my time

Oh but this world is not mine to define

And I want to shine

Please bring me along

Please take me away

I don’t want to stay

And I want to see everything you have to offer me

And I want to see everything you have to offer me

And I want to see everything you have to offer me

I want to see everything the world has to offer me

I want to see everything the world has to offer me

I want to show everything I have to offer it

I want to show everything I have to offer it now

Nelly Furtado Manos Al Aire

Tú, que pierdes el control

Hablando en alta voz

Hieres mi corazón

Yo, tratando de escuchar

No me puedo explicar

Qué extraña sensación.

Tú no me quieres entender

Y me mandas a callar diciéndome

No me debo sorprender

Porque así es la realidad

De nuestro amor

[CHORUS]

Y yo

No tengo armas para enfrentarte

Pongo mis manos, manos al aire

Sólo me importa amarte

En cuerpo y alma como era ayer

Tú que perdiste el control

Te dejaste llevar

Por la inseguridad

Yo que te he visto crecer

Me puedo imaginar

Que todo cambiará

Hoy aunque todo siga igual

Y me mandes a callar diciéndome

Que tienes que dominar

O será el final

Y yo no puedo así

[CHORUS]

Y yo

No tengo armas para enfrentarte

Pongo mis manos, manos al aire

Sólo me importa amarte

En cuerpo y alma como era ayer

Nelly Furtado Be Ok

I was on the grind I could hardly find

Time to be with you

You were always there but I never cared

Until you went away

Thinking back to then

What I should have done

To show you my love

I can’t believe I let you

I can’t believe I let you slip away

Are you gonna be ok?

I’ve been doing so much thinking about you

Fall asleep and I start dreaming about you

Are you gonna be ok?

I’ve been doing so much thinking about you

Fall asleep and I start dreaming

You were always mine then there came a time

You needed to be free

I didn’t understand it wasn’t in the plans

But I let you be

They say that if they love you and you let them go

They’ll fly back one day

I can’t believe I let you

I can’t believe I let you slip away

Are you gonna be ok?

I’ve been doing so much thinking about you

Fall asleep and I start dreaming about you

Are you gonna be ok?

I’ve been doing so much thinking about you

Fall asleep and I start dreaming

You always were so carefree in your way

You never let it get to you that way

And now you are so far

You’re so far away

I hope you know what to do

I’ll be thinking about you

Thinking about you

Are you gonna be ok?

I’ve been doing so much thinking about you

Fall asleep and I start dreaming about you

Are you gonna be ok?

I’ve been doing so much thinking about you

Fall asleep and I start dreaming

Nelly Furtado Red Balloons

There’s a string wrapped around my finger

It’s getting tighter every day

And it just goes on forever

It’s wrapped around every word you said

It’s like a memory, a shoebox in my mind

Calling out to me to open up and look inside

It makes me believe and all we could’ve been

But all the things we were is just me imagining

Take these red balloons

And watch them fly away

I’m untying my heart

And letting go today

Time has come for me to see the truth

Walk up to the edge

I’m letting go

Of these red balloons

There’s a shadow when I walk forward

And it keeps trying to hold me back

I can cry at the strangest moments

Reminding me of what I can’t have

Don’t wanna find even

All we could’ve been

Cause I’m so tired of

Everything I’m imagining

Take these red balloons

And watch them fly away

I’m untying my heart

And letting go today

Time has come for me to see the truth

Walk up to the edge

I’m letting go

Of these red balloons

The child in me

Wants to run and collect

Every single balloon

I’ll never forget

The child in me

Wants to live in a dream

Of carousels

And wishing wells

Take these red balloons

And watch them fly away

I’m untying my heart

And letting go today

Cause every single dream in the past

Does nothing for me but hold me back

Time has come for me to see the truth

I walk up to the edge and let go of these red balloons

Red balloons, red balloons, red balloons

Has been blown away

Tears are in my eyes

I say… goodbye
