All my songs are written within hours but they all start because of one phrase stuck in my head for weeks… “But to keep me in your heart for the rest of your life… what a terrible fate that is” is a line that Snow White told Price Charming in Once Upon a Time… I kinda loved it and twisted it…
The song is called conflicted cause not only every single line contradicts the one before but because I think this is like 4 different songs in one and they all are conflicting with each other to stand out.
CONFLICTED Diego A.M
You will be back some day And I’ll show you my scars The ones that time erased The ones that got bigger And never knew I had The ones that hurt the most Were the ones that we both made
But I wouldn’t choose to forget even if I could
I should have understood by now That time can heal most things Thant time can make you strong I thought it’d make me smarter I never thought it’d make me cry Oh this thing called growing up I never thought it’d make me cry
But I wouldn’t change you for the world, even if I could And I wouldn’t choose to forget even if I could
I wish I were smarter, I wish I didn’t linger
All this time I could erase But instead I took a leap of faith And I hope you know that there is no one new All that crying and sleepless nights and all All that missing and saying goodbye and all Thinking of me when I think of you… too
I hope you wouldn’t choose to forget even if you could cause I wouldn’t change you for the world, even if I should
I wish I were smarter, I wish I didn’t linger To feel stronger and maybe breathe deeper And let you go
But to keep you in my heart for the rest of my life what a terrible fate that is But to keep you in my heart for the rest of my life what a terrible fate that is
You’ve got ‘em wrapped around your finger You’re constantly changing an ever impressive mind You better watch the way you treat ‘em little baby ‘cause you might make him lose his mind I told her twice ‘you better watch twice, because he’s walking for the door and never thinkin’ twice now. So you better bat your eyes and put a little shake in them hips’ No la la love’s gonna’ keep him alive
Love’s just a game that two people play No matter who you think wins the outcomes always the same Before I pick up the strength to leave with all the things that you said but never ever do This la la love, I’m trying hard to understand this love. This game called love
Now you think you got him figured, yeah, I bet you think you got him all figured out She said to go on and get to steppin’ prince charming if you think that your one of a kind She told me twice, I think she told me twice ‘your pretty words sting my ears like bad advice now. You think I will abide to boy trying to be like a man?’ No la la love’s gonna keep him alive
So I look in those eyes. Oh those firey devil eyes and I just can’t figure you out
Oh this little pretty thing. Oh it’s dangerous they call ‘love’ It’s funny how this little word called ‘love’ could turn out to be so dangerous
We back at it baby For the love, for the pain, for the ways I wished you’d change For the fact I never will cut back these feelings that I feel For the good times and the bad times, everything else in between Let’s give a toast to life lessens, growing up, we’ll steal those dreams For those radio plays and those TV Spots We’ll look back to see how small then how big we got To never ever giving up, staying humble, rise above These pretty little dangers that we call love
I’m so proud of this one… This is my first recording since the surgery and it makes me happy it turned out this good. Kellin Quinn, the lead singer of SWS is a high tenor/countertenor and lately I’ve embraced my countertenory-ness more and more. And their music is amazing so it was just matter of time for this cover to happen. This is also the first time I try doing my own backing vocals and a second guitar track, but the main vocals and the guitar were all in one take, so sorry for the pitchness. I also recorded most of it on video so expect that on youtube ;)
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PLAYING “JANTA” +1000 TIMES IN LESS THAN A DAY!! I’ve reached +3500 in 2 months :)
And thanks to Leo, Abacus, Donuts, Carl, B6, Benji, Heroins, Bread, inhibitions, Pepe and everyone at TRP for teaching me so much about my own voice in the last month. And thanks to ATANAS for introducing me to SWS and being so curious and positive about my peculiar voice.
Just trying to get your attention… I learned this super easy song in the guitar and it was so easy that I got obsessed. I tried to make my version more “tenory”. I hope I succeed?
I hope I make EMINEM proud with my rapping skills. XD
THANK YOU for giving me almost 5000 plays now and tho I think you cannot see the amount of downloads I get, it feels so nice to know someone downloads this songs. I love you all for that wherever you are!
About a year ago I watched the cutest short film ever. “Eu não quero voltar sozinho” featured a song that stuck in my head for an unhealthy period of time. Around september I tried to make a translation from portuguese to spanish that could keep the theme of the song and rhyme. And this is the result. As everything I post here, was recorded in one take, so I’m sorry if I messed up with the guitar picking.
If I could I’d force you to watch the short film, but I’d prefer you to want to watch it. so I’m gonna leave a link here ok? They are even releasing a long feature soon! http://eunaoquerovoltarsozinho.com.br
I can’t wait to sing again. And THANK YOU for giving me 2000 plays and downloads in this 2 months. Whoever you are, you are amazing and I really really like you!
Janta (Marcelo Camelo) [Spanish Cover] Marcelo Camelo / Diego A. M.
Yo quería conocerte, mas tengo que aceptar… …Que nuestro amor puede ser eterno o tal vez no. Puede ser cruel la eternidad y andar de frente por sentir voluntad. Yo queria convencerte, lo suficiente e insistir… …Que nuestro amor podrá con lo que vendrá. Puede hacerte mal la eternidad y andar de frente por sentir nostalgia
So for undetermined time I’m not able to sing properly (there’s a story behind it involving an hospital and a fracture and some painful recovery). But I’m glad I record everything I do…
This is the last song I wrote, march 19. One year ago from that day I was having the worst week of my life and one year later they forced me to go away to the beach and get away from the city to try not to think about it all. But of course I though about it even more and I wrote a song. Ha! It’s about making mistakes, not because you are stupid, or because you want to hurt yourself or someone else. But only cause you don’t know better, you are blinded by fear and that makes you clumsy in love. It’s more specifically about a “very first fight” which I caused because everything was so perfect, everything was so good that I was afraid of losing it. And that is not only a terrible thing to think, but a terrible way to live and a terrible thing to cause a fight for. Two years later this song was made… that’s how I work I guess. ____________ Something To Lose (Original Song) Diego A. M.
You’re gonna fall in love and you’re gonna fall so hard You’re gonna fall for him and it’s gonna break You’re gonna lose your mind and you’re gonna care for what you say You’re gonna care for what you do and what you wear
But you won’t, won’t mind if he never says he’s sorry. If you live with that abuse And you won’t, you won’t care being afraid and petrified of Every single phrase you use, because now you have something to lose
You’re gonna fall in love and you’re gonna feel it in your veins You’re gonna feel it in your bones, but not in your brain He’s gonna fall for you. He’s gonna fall, but not in the same way He’s gonna take all of you, but you get to keep the pain
You’re gonna take the jump together but you’re falling far apart Not gonna try to save each other and you know it in your heart. But you don’t mind, because now you have something lose…
For the first time in you’re life, you’re afraid and petrified that you have Something to… lose… -______________
*… I think I fall into the category of the hopeless romantic …The tricky thing about us, the hopeless romantic, is when we fall in love with someone, when we say hello—and it’s magical—we never imagine that hello can turn into a goodbye. And when we kiss someone—and it’s magical—we never ever imagine that it can turn into a last kiss…*
I think after you’ve been broken, everybody tells you the same thing over and over again, it’s gonna get better with time. The thing that no one ever tells you is that it’s ok to feel how you feel, it’s ok to be bitter and sad. It’s ok as long as you know you won’t be that way forever, or maybe you will, but you’ll laugh again, you’ll smile again and there will be moments when you won’t rememberer how you felt, those moments will last longer and longer every time and you will enjoy them. And sooner or later you’ll want to be happy again… and if writing songs is a hobby of yours, you’ll write songs like this one… XD
I wrote this song the very next day I wrote “Change your heart”. I waited some time to post it and I don’t know why… ____________________
So Much To Me Diego A.M.
I still remember the feeling of my sight when my eyes were looking, were looking at you I still remember the touch of your hands on my skin like a needle engraves a tattoo I still can taste all the flavors, the sweet were so many and the bitter, the bitter were few, when I was with you…
Some months have passed and the sound of your name and its echo can only, can only bring pain And I know you know that and that’s why you don’t call, and that’s why you act like it’s all still the same But all of your coldness that freezes this summer was useless, did nothing to put out this flame I created with you….
Cause you mean so much to me…
There are around 20 different songs I have written since we had our very last kiss I guess it’s the way I can tell you I’ll be fine and dear, don’t you worry, don’t worry for me, cause you mean so much to me…..
I still remember the feeling in the back of my mind when your eyes were looking at me, cause you mean so much to me….. You mean the world to me….. _____________________
