about

Elda is my sister and unfortunately she passed away two months ago after a long battle against cancer. I started to compose this song while she was still alive and this is the last song she has ever listened to. I keep as a treasure the last WhatsApp message she sent me after listening to this song, luckily she liked it a lot.
Just 24 hours later she was gone.
We will all suffer some losses during our lifetime but we need to go on and honor the people we loved while we all are still alive.
The only way for me to honor my sister was to dedicate her a song and so I did it. I hope you guys like it, I put my heart and souls into these notes and this is for sure the most important song I've ever written. I will promote this song because I want the name of my sister to travel around the world as much as possible (I want her to be remembered) and if you don't know yet how to call your daughter think about Elda, it's a beautiful name. #elda #nameyourdaughterelda

lyrics

Every time you call
Elda
you don’t sound so strong
my dear
use a lighter blue
when you paint
your own sky
any time you call
Elda
like a withered rose
fading
I don’t know the day
I’ll be there
to bring you rain

Can you believe there’s another way
to live or die, to cry and smile
Can you believe this is not your time
to cry and die, to cry and die

Time is passing by
Elda
pain is going to dry
trust me
there’s another truth
we shall find in our minds

Can you believe there’s another way
to live or die, to cry and smile

I want to run away
find myself, be myself
in my cells
I want to be myself
find myself
in my cells

Can you believe there’s another way
to live or die, to cry and smile
Can you believe this is not your time
to cry and die, to cry and die
