Quiere cantar su alegria a mi tierra Mexicana

When we met
you spoke before you sang
and that was surprising for those
who already knew you

A year and many seasons
glowing and dying through the motions of change
passed through our skins
like water through gills
and you joined the flock to be
where the summers never cease

When we met
all I could do was talk
because I feared the scales in my voice
and didn’t know a thing about range
only raucous shouting or mousy whispers

I understand now that music
is a series of calculated quivers
so now that my bones rattle
and my stomach shakes beneath a fluttering heart
to fill where you would be with motion
I wake my vocal cords
and will sing until you arrive on the wings of daybreak

The hills are crumbling with
the madness of the sea,
but I’m no worried
oh, I’m not worried
because this tide
and that stubborn current
is coming for me

The storms keep rolling
and the rain is promised to fall
but I’m not worried
oh, I’m not worried
for I see you riding upon the waves
and the width of the ocean
cannot break us at all

Land called and you
sailed in after months went by
but I wasn’t worried
oh, I wasn’t worried
because time is but a handful of numbers
and what we planted in our garden of thoughts
can’t turn to cinders with but a simple good-bye

When you came back after the last time we stopped talking, you said your silence was because you were scared. It looks like we’re back in that silence again. I wonder if you ever consider that maybe I’m scared, too. Because I am. Don’t say I never tried, because I always do. When you disappear this way, I feel like it’s better to give up than keep bothering you. I’d rather be an occasional occurrence in your mind than a thorn in your side.

The shutter clicked, but the film did not go round
The shutter clicked, but the film did not go round
I touch these strings but cannot touch the sound

Take a train to a bus and then into the air
Take a train to a bus and then into the air
If I had wings, I’d follow you up there

Girl, you know I hate to see you go
I hate to see you go
But the sunlight follows you right down the road

Just the thought of you makes me want to cry
Just the thought of you makes me want to cry
This deep well of tears has just run dry 

You showed me just how easy love could be
You showed me just how silly love could be
But everything you showed me gracefully

Everyone’s gotta leave their love sometime
Everyone’s gotta leave their love sometime
If not now, then at the end of your lifetime

You’ll be waiting by my bed, I know
You’ll be waiting by my bed, I know 
And your last little words will be “I love you so”

The shutter clicked, but the film did not go round
The shutter clicked, but the film did not go round
I touch these strings but cannot touch the sound
