about

Dance your way to Heaven is far from the usual vocal jazz atmospheres; it refers to harmonies, melodies and rhythms different from swing, keeping in mind the complexity of modern jazz.
This album is fresh and spontaneous with immediately enjoyable songs. The songs follow a path between dream and reality, with a sound that touches souls and catches attention from the start.
All songs are composed by Francesco Chebat, while Martha J. wrote the lyrics. With them, Roberto Piccolo on double bass, Stefano Bertoli on drums and Cisco Portone on percussions and cajon.

Track Name: Dance Your Way to Heaven
DANCE YOUR WAY TO HEAVEN (Lullaby n°2)

Baby baby - Do your dance now
Slow and lazy in the wind - like a falling leaf
Let your little heart swing slow
Lightly as a wish you float
You can dance your way to heaven

Baby baby - Little daisy
I’m the princess you’re the king - I’ll give you my ring
Let your little heart swing slow
Lightly as a wish you float
You can dance your way to heaven

Baby baby - drive me crazy
Waltz around the night with me – we’ll forget our fears
Let your little heart swing slow
Lightly as a wish you float
You can dance your way to heaven
Track Name: Little Angel Eyes
LITTLE ANGEL EYES

I wait for the moon to rise
I hope you won’t be late
Tonight the stars are crowding the sky
I can’t stand their light without you
They shine like angel eyes
They smile

Let me not wait too long for the moon to rise
Let me not be alone little angel eyes

Once again I’m losing control
I hope you won’t be bad
Here alone in darkness I feel
Life can be much more than a dream
It shines like angel eyes
It smiles

Let me not wait too long for my love to come
Let me not be alone little angel eyes
Track Name: Diamonds in My Mind
DIAMONDS IN MY MIND

Visions of starry summer nights come and go
Like the waves on the shore
And I recall the moonlight
And sitting in that little bar
It’s so easy to love you

Apples and kisses, sparkling champagne and you
In that house by the blue
And if I had more money
And if I had no things to do
I’d go right back there with you

Sparkling like little diamonds inside my mind
Memories are like a treasure no one can steal from me

I still can feel the sweet embrace of the sea
Like a cradle it swings
And I recall the moonlight
And wishing on a falling star
Did your secret dream come true?

Sparkling like little diamonds inside my mind
Memories are like a treasure no one can steal from me

No one can steal diamonds from my mind
Track Name: Like Children Seeking the Truth
LIKE CHILDREN SEEKING THE TRUTH

There’s someone looking for water
Someone runs from home
There’s someone trying to save lives
Someone looks for love

There are things - going on
And we must be pure - Like children seeking the truth

There’s someone looking for shelter
Some look for a job
Women still looking for freedom
Behind a locked door

There are things - Going on - And we must be pure
Like children searching for something true
In a world of fear - Where we all should be in peace

There’s someone looking for justice
Some try to forgive
Some forget and some remember
We all try to live

There are wars – we must fight
And we must be pure
Like children searching for something true
In a world of fear - Where we all should be free
Track Name: Too Soon
TOO SOON (Lullaby n°1)

In the darkness of the night dream on dream on
Fairy tales come true
You can dance with butterflies inside your room
And you can fly so high in the sky
Too soon, too soon the dream is through
But baby please don’t cry

In the darkness of the night dream on dream on
Angels play with you
And they sing a lullaby inside your soul
And fly with you so high in the blue
Too soon, too soon the dream is through
But baby please don’t cry

In the darkness of the night, dream on dream on
I’ll be here with you
We’ll be walking hand in hand into the night
And we shall fly so high in the sky
Too soon, too soon my baby grows
But now he’s in my arms
Track Name: UFO
UFO

If I had magic wings to fly
I would glide in the silence of outer space
Like a comet I’d cross the sky
And I’d follow you ‘till the end of the universe

I know I could have any man I want
But when it comes to you
Angel or alien
Love is just like reaching for the moon

If I had magic wings to fly
I would follow you ‘till the end of time and space
When desire makes room for pain
Then the trail of my tears will shine like a new born star

I know I could have any man I want
But when it comes to you
Angel or alien
Love is just like reaching for the moon

If I had magic wings to fly
I would rise like a lonely star in the endless sky
Wrapped in my dreams I’d cross the night
And I’d follow you till the end of universe

I know I could have any man I want
But when it comes to you
Angel or alien
Love is just like reaching for the moon
Track Name: The Thread of Dreams
THE THREAD OF DREAMS

A network of dreams
A shower of tears
That I dare to share with you tonight – and

Wild is the wind that blows my mind
‘Cause the pain is still alive
Is there truth behind the lies?
Love is much too hard to find

Am I just a fool
Following the thread of some old dream
Nothing is as it seems
But you are here tonight with me

The warmth of a smile
Your hand over mine
That unveils desires I left behind – but

Still there are secrets left untold
But your eyes look so sincere
And now that you cracked the seal
Is there something left to steal?

Am I just a fool
Following the thread of some old dream
Nothing is as it seems
But you are here tonight with me
Track Name: Wake Me Up When We Get There
WAKE ME UP WHEN WE GET THERE

We travel through the night into the dark
We’re on the move again
How many million miles we left behind
How many still to go

And in the empty road there is no sound
Except the drone of the car
At times you look at me and hold my hand
Your smile lights up the night

Just for a while, turn the radio on
Maybe they’ll play some old love song we both know

We are traveling to nowhere
Wake me up when we get there
Track Name: The Never Ending Dance
THE NEVER ENDING DANCE (Lullaby n°3)

Too many things to say
Too many words that flow like an endless wind in my brain
Why can’t I keep the pace with this never-ending dance
While my time is dripping away?

Love is just like the tide
It comes and goes and we never seem to know when it shows
We are taken by surprise and suddenly we realize
That we’re not the same anymore

Some are scared and some just smile
and some say they just don’t care
But in the end we all give in to love’s never-ending dance.

Love is just like the tide
And so maybe its stream one day will make us meet again
You’ll take me by surprise and suddenly I’ll realize
That I’m not the same anymore.

I’ll be scared and I shall smile, pretending I just don’t care
But in the end I will give in to love’s never-ending dance.
Track Name: Windy Day
WINDY DAY

Oh oh today the wind is sweeping the town
The sky is blue and the clouds are running faster than my dreams
Colors are bright and everything looks so nice
The air is brisk and it seems to give a new life to my soul

Stand on dreams
Walk on clouds
On a windy day anything could come about
And we can smile away
All the cares we have
Just for one day

Oh oh today the wind is tickling the town
I’m feeling light as a kite, I feel that life is on my side
I go to the park and stroll then buy a new dress and call
That old friend that I miss so much - am I still in time?

Stand on dreams
Walk on clouds
On a windy day anything could come about
And we can smile away
All the cares we have
Just for one day
Track Name: The Only Sane Thing to Do
THA ONLY SANTE THING TO DO

Too high – too low
Too weak – too strong
Too far – too near
Too dark – too clear

Baby tell me
Where the wind goes
Are we like leaves
Going nowhere
Blown by fate?
The only sane thing to do
is being crazy.

Too cold – too warm
Too quick – too slow
Too strong to cry
Too weak to fly

Baby tell me
Where the wind goes
Are we like leaves
Going nowhere
Blown by fate?
The only sane thing to do
is being crazy.
