Elisa

Elisa was born in 1999 on the island of Madeira and started singing at the early age of 7. From her childhood, she remembers her father playing records from the great classics like The Beatles, Ray Charles, Queen, ABBA and The Eagles, among others.

From an early age, she took a particular interest in music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Elisa has participated in several regional festivals and, at the age of 13, joined some musical projects and started to perform around the island. Her love for jazz music appeared at 17 years old, leading her to study jazz at the Conservatório da Madeira.



In 2018, she moved to Lisbon to continue her studies and, there, began to compose her own songs. Today, she is studying at the Music Academy of Lisbon, and she has joined the Great Dane Studios. Meanwhile, she was invited by Marta Carvalho to be the singer of her song Medo de Sentir (Fear of Feeling) for Festival da Canção 2020. In February 2020, Elisa signed a record deal with Warner Music Portugal and anticipates the release of her original songs soon.

Lyrics of Medo De Sentir

Qual é a saída
Eu acho que já não sei amar
E se o amor me convida
Agora não consigo aceitar
Parece que é rotina
A minha solidão teima em voltar

Eu não era assim
Mas agora tenho medo de sentir
Pergunta ao tempo, ele sabe tudo sobre mim
Pergunta ao tempo, ele sabe tudo sobre mim

Se me dás a tua mão
Eu não sei como vou reagir
Se falas de coração
Parece que estou outra vez a ouvir
Mais uma ilusão
Que não tarda muito em partir

Eu não era assim
Mas agora tenho medo de sentir
Pergunta ao tempo, ele sabe tudo sobre mim
Pergunta ao tempo, ele sabe tudo sobre mim
O que ele guarda, diz tudo o que eu sinto por ti

Eu já tentei mudar
Mas a vida levou
O melhor que eu tinha em mim
E se um dia eu voltar
Esperarás por mim?

Eu não era assim
Mas agora tenho medo de sentir
Pergunta ao tempo, ele sabe tudo sobre mim
Pergunta ao tempo, ele sabe tudo sobre mim
O que ele guarda, diz tudo o que eu sinto por ti
Is there any way out?
I think I can no longer feel love
And if love invites me
I can no longer accept
Feels just like a routine
This loneliness insists in coming back to me

I was never like this
But now I’m afraid to feel anything
Go and ask time, for it knows all about me
Go and ask time, for it knows all about me

If you take my hand
I don't really know how to react
If you speak from the heart
It seems like I'm hearing once again
Just one more illusion
That will quickly fade away

I was never like this
But now I’m afraid to feel anything
Go and ask time, for it knows all about me
Go and ask time, for it knows all about me
What time keeps says everything I feel about you

I’ve tried to change my ways
But life has taken
The best that I had inside me
And if one day I return
Will you wait for me?

I was never like this
But now I am afraid to feel anything
Go and ask time, for it knows all about me
Go and ask time, for it knows all about me
What time keeps says everything I feel about you
