Hi,

In my previous project, Cocodrilos y Mapaches, I learned and exercised the basics of songwriting in my mother tongue, and recording, editing, mixing, and mastering music.

Now comes Shelter, an experiment on writing songs in English. Shelter is an indie easy-listening album that started with me writing thirty songs in two weeks, then choosing the best seven, and polishing and producing them over two months.

Note that I have licensed some of the songs in this album. Check below for more information.

If you like my music or want to follow me on this journey, follow or contact me through my Facebook page.

Thanks!

Elezeta

         Am      F          G                   Am
    It's cold outside. It's dark and there's no time
    Am             F            G     G
    When was this story written down?
       Am        F         G                     Am
    So broad and wide, the thoughts sound like a chime
    Am           F            C         G
    Why was the story written down this way?
    
        Am       F           G             Am
    The words dissolve. They leave a gap behind,
      Am                G             F        F
    A vacuum chamber of silent self-reflection
       Am        G         F                     Am
    So broad and wide, the thoughts sound like a chime
      Am                    F         E     E7
    I listen to the muffled echoes of void
    
    Am          F    G            Am
    Ok, that is all, I'm ready to go
    Am          F    G            Am
    Ok, that is all, I'm ready to go
    Am          F    G            Am
    Ok, that is all, I'm ready to go
    Am          F    G            Am
    Ok, that is all, I'm ready to go
    
    Am   F    E     E
    
         Am      F          G                   Am
    It's cold outside. It's dark and there's no time
    Am             F            G     G
    When was this story written down?
       Am        F         G                     Am
    So broad and wide, the thoughts sound like a chime
    Am           F            C         G
    Why was the story written down this way?
    
    Am          F    G            Am
    Ok, that is all, I'm ready to go
    Am          F    G            Am
    Ok, that is all, I'm ready to go
    Am          F    G            Am
    Ok, that is all, I'm ready to go
    Am          F    G            Am
    Ok, that is all, I'm ready to go

    02 - I Must Go

    Dm
    Look into my eyes
      Am
    I can't explain
        F            C
    The lows and the highs
    
    Dm
    Look into my eyes
    Am
    I don't care
       F                      E
    To say it wasn't good for me
    
           Dm      F
    I must go far away
              C             Dm
    Where the sea meets the rain
           Dm      F
    I must go far away
              C               Dm
    Where the birds sing your name
    
    Dm
    Look into my eyes
       Am
    No need to explain
        F             C
    The tears and the pain
    
    Dm
    Look into your eyes
    Am
    You don't dare
        F                      E
    To say it was the best for us
    
           Dm      F
    I must go far away
              C             Dm
    Where the sea meets the rain
           Dm      F
    I must go far away
              C               Dm
    Where the birds sing your name
    
           Dm      F
    I must go far away
              C             Dm
    Where the sea meets the rain
           Dm      F
    I must go far away
              C     F         Dm
    Where the birds sing your name
