Vampiros do Interior

(Image by Carlos Paes)

This is a song that the beautiful Daniela Basílio decided to lend her voice to. André Reis made the recording of the voice and Sónia Duarte the lyrics. It’s a metaphorical social critic. Then I did the bass line, and recorded all the other instruments around the voice of Daniela. It is a Virtual Cool Jazzy combo taylored by me to imitate a live performance, on the fly, on a Club.

VAMPIROS DO INTERIOR
Music: Tiago Videira
Lyrics: Sónia Duarte

Somos os morcegos,
os morcegos de asa fraca,
desabamos muito cedo
no recesso da casa.

Somos os vampiros,
os vampiros de cor suave,
andamos pálidos de medo
fora da cave.

Somos as toupeiras
as toupeiras do submundo
escavamos mil fronteiras
com medo de ir ao fundo.

Somos o Prometeu,
Prometeu em apuro
o nosso fígado ardeu
no fogo puro.

E nada pode fazer voar
através do espaço aberto
senão escapulir pelo telhado
de volta ao céu sem tecto.

Somos os vampiros,
os vampiros.
