Berlin Syndrome

Cry like a river

Cry like a river

E49                             A/E

#Cry like a river

E4                                    E

So I can see the #sun shining through the #glass of your tears

#Smile like a mirror

So I can blow away #all my sorrow and fears

Refrain:

A/E

Until I stop to weep

E

Until we both count sheep

A/E                                          E

Until our breath gets soft and deep…

A/E

Keep slowing down the speed

E         Am      C/A

Until I fall asleep under your arms

 

Sing in my ear

So I can hear the #moon fade away and all wounds disappear

Sigh like my dear

So I can be the #sky in the dawn getting clear

-Refrain-

E       D/E     E/A   D/E   E/A  E

Until we fall asleep underneath the stars

Divagando devagar

De voltar pra quem

Me deixou à mercê

Merci pour m’avoir oublié

Merci pour m’abandonner

Diz que já vai me ligar

Admira o meu cantar

Devolveu o seu jantar

Desapareceu no ar, me deixou

Gm79                  C1311

Devota de Iemanjá

Decora cantigas do mar

Devora amor que não há

Adora se abandonar, se deixar

Cuida Bem

Cuida Bem

Cuida bem dos seus filhos

Que choram no lar

sem se abraçar

Cuida bem do meu filho

Saiu navegar

virou vendaval

 

Ouça o mar

Canto de águas salgadas salvador

Lágrimas de imperatriz

Flores brotam cicatriz

 

Cuida bem dos seus filhos

Que choram no lar

sem se abraçar

Cuida bem do meu filho

Partiu para o mar

saudar Iemanjá

 

Ouça bem

Manto de estrelas sagradas pesca dor

Pérolas de outrora tem

Cores da aurora vêm

Musical path

Nina sings since her teens and studied classical piano in her hometown, Porto Alegre, and in Strasbourg. She started composing her songs after realizing that there is no universal standard for aesthetic perfection, at least according to Bourdieu and herself. That was 2014. Later she started playing the guitar to accompany her songs.
