Changes 04:03
This is more than a lifetime This is more than the last time I've been writing in the forest the sound of days Those waterfalls, the rain sets in It takes one day - (the) sound of glory Let them in, don't let them out Now follow me, follow me, follow me Changes ‘Cause we are moving on Our memories will last for long Changes ‘Cause that's where we belong We are here Are we coming together now? This is all I ever wanted This is all I ever needed I've been searching in the forest the sound of days The night falls, the moon comes in It takes one day - (the) sound of glory Let them in, don't let them out Now follow me, now follow me Changes ‘Cause we are moving on Our memories will last for long Changes ‘Cause that's where we belong We are here Changes ‘Cause we are moving on This is how we’re gonna last for long Changes ‘Cause that's where we belong Are we coming together now? Changes ‘Cause we are moving on Our memories will last for long Changes ‘Cause that's where we belong We are here Changes ‘Cause we are moving on This is how we’re gonna last for long Changes ‘Cause that's where we belong Are we coming together now?

Passengers 04:26
Take my hand, don’t fall apart Forget the news, it’s a new start Like tender waves defy the line of fire Incinerate what’s left behind There’s no you, it’s a brand new start Time will forgive us, ‘cause time keeps ticking in this Real time - invisible Long time, no see Those lines - unbreakable Green grass, blue sea Real time - invisible Long time, no see
Be wiser, enlightened Affectionally The world is changing It’s colliding with a sin And if all seems quiet, there is a mist between Tons of desire (and) unnecessary wills A distant riot with no end Why are we here? Real time - invisible Long time, no see Those lines - unbreakable Green grass, blue sea Real time - invisible Long time, no see
Be wiser, enlightened Affectionally I’m visible / Unbreakable / I’m capable / United / Definable / Desirable / Connected / I’m wired Real time - invisible Long time, no see Those lines - unbreakable Green grass, blue sea Real time - invisible Long time, no see
Be wiser, enlightened Affectionally

Young Blood 03:51
The city tonight takes me back to nowhere I’ve been seeing dreamers all night (But) they don’t really seem to care Oh! No matter where I go, no matter what I seek I feel my mind is playing tricks on me Just need to stop, replay and repeat Something is coming and it’s something sweet Lost days, lost days in the summer Long days, long days of summertime Lost days, lost days in the summer Give me something new, give me some daylight The city tonight turns me into someone else I’ve been drifting out of my mind Leaving hearts that I couldn't keep No matter where I go, oh! no matter what I see I’m spinning around at a high frequency I’m paralysed in-between a desire or a wicked dream Suddenly I realised I was awake for the whole time Finally I realised, I was… Lost days, lost days in the summer Long days, long days of summertime Lost days, lost days in the summer Give me something new, give me some daylight

Madrugada 04:41
Won’t give it up, give up on you You’re all I see Your red lips, they knock me down So take it slow, ‘cause I’m on fire Take it slow and get me higher  I’ll be around, start it, then turn it back I’ll be around, grab you, then bring you back Maybe we can dance all night Floating in a velvet sky You will cross the line Yeah, I know you will (Don’t stop) You can call me yours tonight I like the way it sounds (Can’t stop / Don’t stop) Let me feel you by the way you’re moving Take it slow, ‘cause I’m on fire Take it slow and get me higher I’ll be around, grab you, then bring you back                         Don’t leave me hanging on the floor Just keep on dancing  Don’t lose the chances   Maybe we can dance all night Floating in a velvet sky You will cross the line Yeah, I know you will (Don’t stop) You can call me yours tonight I like the way it sounds (Can’t stop / Don’t stop) Let me feel you by the way you’re moving

Galaxies 04:27
You, I can’t make you fall I won’t make you fall Fall down on you When it’s easy to believe then it’s hard to lose But I may have a reason that you won’t forget If you find a new way We can start all over Only if you know you’re right If you find a new way We can start all over Something we have never tried

1997 03:54
Two more years of blasts, you can count on this Ten more years we’ll last The golden days have returned In the place where we come from Will you take me home? We’ll disappear into a long, long night And ride into the moon They dressed like they were ready All the city lights will guide you home This place - Always Back home - Always Two more years of blasts, you can count on this Ten more years we’ll last The Golden days have returned Like those teenage years Come and disappear And we sing our lies Like those teenage years Filled with hope and tears And we sing our lies Lying down They dressed like they were ready All the city lights will guide you home They say that like the rhythm marks the tone and notes So you’re guiding me…

Shibuya 03:31
Have it all inside I know you always denied me Because it’s so hard to let it go Oh no! - My eyes are following you I see you all over the place now It’s not over ‘cause I need you now So it’s gonna take a while I’ve gotta keep in mind, I get it Yeah, it’s gonna take a while I won’t leave it all behind, I get it And tell me, so tell me, that nothing is wrong tonight And tell me, please tell me, that everything will be alright I can feel it I feel you all over the place now Come on over ´cause I need you now So It’s gonna take a while I’ve gotta keep in mind, I get it Yeah, it’s gonna take a while I won’t leave it all behind, I get it And tell me, so tell me, that nothing is wrong tonight And tell me, please tell me, that everything will be alright I can feel it It’s gonna take a while Everything will be alright

Tango 04:11
I’m having such a good time Staring at the ceiling in the dark Moving through the shadows Hailing ghosts relieve the broken hearts The speed of life runs faster than it should Daydreaming in the dark, my eyes glow Oh, it´s time to get out and see a new world ‘Cause this hallway I already know There's something in my mind Spinning all the time It might be you It’s been here all the time Something in my mind That’s the truth With a hand on my back, on the back of my neck I am feeling you I can hear your footsteps coming in my way With a hand on my back, on the back of my neck Looking for you I can feel the blood rushing through my veins Oh, it´s time to get out, I’m dreaming ‘Cause this hallway I already know Out of love

Save My Soul 05:05
I’ve been drifting for so long  I’ve stopped carrying it all inside me It’s time to move on I’ve got visions and they will find me  What kind of world do we live in?  What kind of life can we expect? Can we just forget the rest? In times like these I find my way And in my dreams, it’s like a wicked game If I was who waited I would still be waiting What is this light coming off the ground? This is killing me inside Maybe I´ll just close my eyes I really can´t decide  Should I turn to the other side? Will people leave me far behind? I´ll keep my word, I can promise you that Can we just forget the rest? All these visions in a day Are driving me away To a place I’ve found once To a place that will save my soul In times like these I find my way And in my dreams, it’s like a wicked game If I was who waited I would still be waiting What is this light coming off the ground?

about

‘Heavy Light’ marks the return of Norton with an album which is a pact on how to deal with the intimacy in the pop song. On building future memories. Without nostalgia or regrets. With sharing and love.
A deeply urban album that, still, doesn’t cease to drive us to look at breathtakingly vast and bucolic landscapes. As if, in one minute, we were at the top of a skyscraper in Tokyo, contemplating the architectural infinity, and, in the next, travelling without destination, in the open sea, with the wind and the currents of the ocean.

Each song is, in its own way, a mirror of the confused times in which we live. However, they bring optimism and hope challenged by the shadow of the unknown. And, of course, again, the love that runs like the sweat on any dance floor. Free rein, flying backpack, the city streets seen from above, bursting. Everything can happen.

‘Heavy Light’ consists of nine songs written and recorded between Castelo Branco, Lisbon, Vila Velha de Ródão and Mértola – Portugal.
