4. PORTUGAL: Heitor – More Time

“More Time”
Performed by: Heitor
Music by: Heitor
Lyrics by: Heitor

Heitor is participating in the HCSC for the ninth time.

In his own words:
I work as an engineer, but in my spare time I enjoy writing songs, singing and playing them on the piano or keyboard. I’ve performed on many occasions for my friends and small audiences.

My song this year is about persistence, overcoming challenges, learning from mistakes and asking for another chance.

Lyrics:
Turning around with my feet on the ground
Back to the place where I started
Always repeating this cycle of silent frustration

I try another approach to get out
But my nature doesn’t allow it
And if I ask for a reason
There’s no explanation

I see the sun go down
And all the light begins to fade
I cry into the night
You have to give me one more day

I need more time
Another chance to try
I still haven’t learned how to fly
I may have to fall a hundred times
While I’m getting ready to rise

Just one more time
I’m crossing one more line
Leaving all my failures behind
If you let me keep on trying
You will see me reaching the sky

So many stupid mistakes that I made
So many chances I wasted
But in the end they all taught me
How to become better

I know I’m growing and I’m not afraid
But for far too long I have waited
Challenges are part of life
But they can’t last forever

I see the sun come back
And all the darkness fades away
The earth keeps moving fast
Please understand me when I say

I need more time
Another chance to try
I still haven’t learned how to fly
I may have to fall a hundred times
While I’m getting ready to rise

Just one more time
I’m crossing one more line
Leaving all my failures behind
If you let me keep on trying
You will see me reaching the sky

The earth keeps moving fast
You have to give me one more day

I need more time
Another chance to try
I still haven’t learned how to fly
I may have to fall a hundred times
While I’m getting ready to rise

Just one more time
I’m crossing one more line
Leaving all my failures behind
If you let me keep on trying
You will see me reaching the sky

If you let me keep on trying now
You will soon see me reaching the sky
