On PAOLO again...

While being logged on to the Net, I have dear Paolo Santos singing songs for me. The voice of this guy really soothes me.

Because of You

if ever you wonder
if you touched my soul
yes, you do
since i met you it's not the same
you bring life to everything i do
just the way you say "hello"
with one touch i can't let go
never thought i'd fall in love with you

because of you
my life has changed
thank you for the love and the joy you bring
because of you
i feel no shame
i'll tell the world
it's because of you

sometimes i get lonely
and all i gotta do is think of you
you capture something inside of me
you make all of my dreams come true
it's not enough that you love me for me
you reached inside and touched me eternally
"i love you" best explains how i feel for you

the magic in your eyes
true love i can't deny
when you hold me
i just lose control
i want you to know
that i'm never letting go
you mean so much to me
i want the world to see
it's because of you

I also love to hear his own rendition of the songs Out of My League by Stephen Speaks and I'll Be by Edwin McCain.

Out of My League

it's her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away
and the feeling that i'm falling further in love
makes me shiver but in a good way
all the times i have sat and stared
as she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair
and she purses her lips, bats her eyes and she plays,
with me sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say
cause i love her with all that i am
and my voice shakes along with my hands
cause she’s all that I see and she’s all that I need
and i'm out of my league once again

it's a masterful melody when she calls out my name to me
as the world spins around her she laughs, rolls her eyes
and i feel like i'm falling but it's no surprise
cause i love her with all that i am
and my voice shakes along with my hands
cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea
but i'd rather be here than on land
yes she's all that i see and she's all that i need
and i'm out of my league once again

it's her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away
and the feeling that i'm falling further in love
makes me shiver but in a good way
all the times i have sat and stared
as she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair
and she purses her lips, bats her eyes and she plays,
with me sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say
cause i love her with all that i am
and my voice shakes along with my hands
cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea
but i'd rather be here than on land
yes she's all that i see and she's all that i need
and i'm out of my league once again


I'll Be

The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful
Stop me and steal my breath
Emeralds from mountains thrust towards the sky
Never revealing their depth

Tell me that we belong together
Dress it up with the trappings of love
I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips
Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

I'll be your cryin' shoulder
I'll be love suicide
I'll be better when I'm older
I'll be the greatest fan of your life

Rain falls angry on the tin roof
As we lie awake in my bed
You're my survival, you're my living proof
My love is alive and not dead

Tell me that we belong together
Dress it up with the trappings of love
I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips
Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

I'll be your cryin' shoulder
I'll be love suicide
I'll be better when I'm older
I'll be the greatest fan of your life

I've dropped out, burned up, fought my way back from the dead
Tuned in, turned on, remembered the things you said

I'll be your cryin' shoulder
I'll be love suicide
I'll be better when I'm older
I'll be the greatest fan of your life...

But among all the songs he had sung, what I really liked the best was: Moonlight over Paris.

You say you've been overseas
I say over where
You say just a holiday
My Alsatian heir
I say I've been working late, working overtime
Haven't seen the sun since eighty-nine

Does the moon light shine on Paris
After the sun goes down
If the London Bridge is falling
Will anybody hear a sound
If you follow the sunset will it ever end
Does the moonlight shine on Paris

Oh and how can you just walk away
Is it something that I said
I see only black and white
You see green and red
You believe in the miracles
Water into wine
I'll believe it when it makes the New York Times

Does the moonlight shine on Paris
After the sun goes down
If the London Bridge is falling
Will anybody hear a sound
If you follow the sunset will it ever end
Does the moonlight shine on Paris

Paolo played his favorite song, Peter Miller's "Moonlight Over Paris." He says if he has only one song that he could play, that would be his choice.

I have read in my fave broadsheet before that Pao has his own production company named Acoustic Gold Productions. As far as I can remember it right, it is also the same company that handles his projects since he does not want a recording company to work on with how he do his music. This guy had and has been defying great odds by releasing best-selling independent productions with major label support such as Warner and Viva Video.

Pao
also known as Mr. Acoustic, is currently being regarded as a forerunner in bringing in the new wave of acoustic performers in to the local music scene.
