Filipa Azevedo

Filipa Azevedo will represent Portugal at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. The young singer will sing a song by a veteran journalist, Augusto Madureira.

Filipa Azevedo is only 18 years old but has already a victory of the talent show Família Super Star in her portfolio, winning it in 2008, at the age of 16. 

From then on, she participated in numerous TV shows and recorded her first CD. She studied transverse flute, from the age of 12, at the Music Conservatory of Porto. She presently lives in London, where she studies Music Technology and Music Production.

The writer of the song, Augusto Madureira, has been a journalist for over 20 years. But music is an old love in his life: he started studying piano at the age of 6, at the Music Conservatory of Faro.

Lyrics of Há Dias Assim

Há dias assim
Que nos deixam sós
A alma vazia
A mágoa na voz
Gastámos as mãos
Tanto as apertámos
Já não há palavras
Foi de tanto as calarmos

Há uma canção
Que não te cantei
Versos por rimar
Poemas que nunca inventei
Quem nos pôs assim
A vida rasgada?
Quem te me levou
Roubou-me a alma
Mas de ti não sabe nada

Há dias assim
Não há que esconder
Recear palavras
Amar ou sofrer
Ocultar sentidos
Fingir que não há
Há dias perdidos
Entre cá e lá

Há uma canção
Que não te cantei
Versos por rimar
Poemas que nunca inventei
Quem nos pôs assim
A vida rasgada?
Quem te me levou
Roubou-me a alma
Mas de ti não sabe nada

Sei que um dia saberás
Que a vida é uma só
Não volta atrás

Quem nos pôs assim
A vida rasgada?
Quem te me levou
Roubou-me a alma
Mas de ti não sabe nada
It's one of those days

It's one of those days
You find you're alone
Your soul has no place
For tears anymore
Just look at the sky now
There's no moon no stars
Don’t try to insist, babe!
Is there anything left inside?

There's only a song
Waiting to be sung
If you read my mind
You'll only see pain and some blood
Please don’t answer me
I don’t wanna know
Who took you from me?
Who stole my soul?
Who pretends to be your love now?

It´s one of those days
There's no need to hide
Don’t fear any word, babe!
Do you laugh or cry?
No need to hide senses
No time to pretend
Pretend there are no days
Like those days we're missing now

There's only a song
Waiting to be sung
If you read my mind
You'll only see pain and some blood
Please don’t answer me
I don’t wanna know
Who took you from me?
Who stole my soul?
Who pretends to be your love now?

Now I know
But I can see
Maybe my love was blind or blinding me

Please don’t answer me
I don’t wanna know
Who took you from me?
Who stole my soul?
Who pretends to be your love now?
