lyrics

99 I was child sailing ships behind the bunkhouse, in an irrigation ditch,
They almost all died, the pebbles of the crew, but I guess you need some drama in your life, even if you make it up don’t you? Winter came with cows to feed, but spring always threatened me with la Llorona dragging me into her raging river memories
“leave me all alone!”
Now someone say:

“Wait- you’re forgetting the best part of that story! Remember how you were so sorry as you drove away But you were never sorry enough, You were never sorry enough to stay”

Come on lighten up Come on say something Do I push too much? Come on say anything

2009 I was beside the howler monkeys on the ship, the dragons mouth spits us out as fire into the tides And I slid into the Dominican rivers, and collected pebbles, one for me, one for each of my sisters, And how could I not think of Sky as I looked up at the sky and how could I not let it all tear out into night, And the docks dragged into cocaine, but the white tower saved me with you and your name, until you went away again
Now someone say:
“Wait, you’re forgetting the best part of that story! Remember how you were so sorry as you drove away, but you knew you could never stay It was always too late to stay behind, Always too late to stay”
