Calexico - Fortune Teller Lyrics

I was just standing, turning around
That’s when they caught me headin’ down
Keep on going don’t look away
That’s what they tell me, that’s what they say


Yeah, that’s what they tell me, that’s what they say

You’re a pretty thought I support
Yeah, I’m just tryin’ to hold up as I go
And one day I swear I’ll spread my wings
I’m on my way to finer things


I’m on my way to finer things

It wasn’t just me playin’ those games
Still it’s my own fault just the same
I opened up, I let you in
Now these crystal feelings are wearing thin


I opened up, I let you in

I’m walkin’ with the fortune teller
I can see my own way home
But I don’t like this dark road anymore
And I don’t want to be alone for long


Don’t want to be alone for long
I don’t want to be on this dark road alone...

    In regards to the idea this is similar to The Shins 'New Slang' I do hear the similarity musically yet the vibe each song creates is an entirely different mood. The Shins have a more Marcy Playground weirdness to them...kind of a psychedelic, college kids angst thing whereas Calexico capture a sweet, longing vibe in their song...something I more readily relate to.
