about

Released in late 2009, Minta & The Brook Trout is the first full-length album by Minta. Following a critically acclaimed debut EP, You, which had this Portuguese singer-songwriter compared to the likes of Feist, Aimee Mann and even The Bealtes, Minta & The Brook Trout is a 11 song record made in a week by Minta, her band and a choice selection of guest musicians.

It has been called “one of the best Portuguese albums of the year” by Blitz magazine and described as “absolutely wonderful music made of luminous and sublime songs” by renowned music journalist António Pires, in I.

Track Name: large amounts
give it up for those who have the guts
to hurt who they love
when they really have to

those who have the guts to love themselves
above all the rest
when they really must

there isn’t much i wouldn’t do for you
but don’t ask me to
stick around forever

there isn’t much i wouldn’t do for you
so don’t ask me to
stick around forever

large amounts
of fun and songs
but you still go hungry
you can still go hungry
Track Name: to disappear
intentions are hanging in the air
so are the feelings
but words can’t seem to find their way out of your mouth
we sit in silence

and this is leading us nowhere
there’s no way to go from here
and although i’m trying hard
you still want to disappear

it’s always seemed like a waste of time to talk
and now we seem to have forgotten how it’s done
as we stare at everything but each other
so very quietly

and this is leading us nowhere
there’s no way to go from here
and although i’m trying hard
you still want to disappear
Track Name: i don't want to
i won't be your ashtray
i won't be your mom

i don't want to
i'm not going to
i don't want to
i don't want to
i'm not going to choke
to choke

i won't forget your birthday
i won't drink your beer
i won't smoke inside
i won't throw away your pillow

i don't want to
i'm not going to
i don't want to
i'm not going to go
to go

to go
to go
Track Name: on lust
you come over with your winning smile
you speak in words i know
i don’t even try to fight it

your hands look good when you’re walking
your hands look good when you’re dancing
your hands are good for touching

i know what they say about you
and i know a thing or two about lust
we’re both so far away from home

it’s all but echoes in my head
the beat, the lights, the people there
i don’t even try to focus

i let go because i can
i let go because i want to
i let go because it’s you

i know what they say about you
and i know a thing or two about lust
we’re both so far away from home
Track Name: without it
we have had some lovely times
though we fight the weirdest fights
you went out to clear your head
said you didn't understand

that i might just be looking for some answers
that maybe i'm just trying to find some hope
why did i never feel like i couldn't live without you
i why did i never feel like you're a part of me

and it's hard if you have ever been in love
to live everyday to go through your life without it

when you left i was so sad
thinking about what you said
maybe you're not coming back
and that might not be that bad

’cause maybe i have had enough of this
maybe i'm ready for something else
i want to feel like i couldn't live without it
i want to feel like it's a part of me

and it's hard if you have ever been in love
to live everyday to go through your life without it
Track Name: if she can't
it's a story of misuse
she has nothing left to loose

she can't love you so she's better off unloved
she can't touch you so she's better off untouched
she can't have you so it's best that she's alone
if she can't have you

you

seeing you she falls apart
seeing you it breaks her heart

there's no way she'll ever love like she loved then
just no way she'll ever feel like that again
she's accepted that she'll never have no one
if she can't have you

you
Track Name: my my my my
my my my
my my my what a beautiful day
and i’m here
my my my what a beautiful day
and you’re here
Track Name: when to stop
i can’t speak like i always do
the words come out all funny
and i’m not sure what it is about you
but i almost call you honey

and i feel like telling you
all the things you make me want to do

hope i know when to stop

i went home alone that night
and i do not regret it
i’m still not sure what i will do
the next time i am close to you

will i feel like telling you
all the things you make me want to do?

will i know when to stop?
Track Name: if you choose to run
don’t want to scare you but it has begun
few hours left before the morning sun

it’s about to come

there’s nothing wrong with wanting to go on
no one’s going to blame you if you choose to run

it’s about to come
Track Name: dream of you
i can’t only be in love with you
during my lonely hours
i can’t go without thinking of you
for days on end

and then tremble when
i talk to you
wonder what
you think of me
be sure that i’m
in lust with you

and dream of you
dream of you
Track Name: so the dance
The rain began to fall
And so the dance began
I feel it in my bones
This isn’t meant to last
I feel it in my blood
This isn’t going to end
I feel it in my bones
This will be over soon
I feel it in my bones
This isn’t going to end
