Calexico - Voices In The Field Lyrics




Running thru fields of flowers and smoke
Leaving behind all that we've built
The garden now ashes and the roof is caving in
A broken how glass
Blood running thin

For your life... come to my side
For your life... take me from here

For your life... open up your heart
Let me hear your voice
Let me hear you sing

I wasn't on my way down to the marketplace
Wasn't at the schoolyard
Where our children play
I wasn't in our home standing in the living room
Or writing you a note that
I'll be back soon

For your life... come to my side
For your life... take me from here

For your life... open up your heart
Let me hear your voice
Let me hear you sing

Oh, let me hear you sing
Let me hear you sing

I don't recognize myself that much anymore
Memories in my pockets and coins on the floor

All I smell is smoke and all I ever see
Is the look in you eyes
That look in you eyes

For your life... come to my side
For your life... take me from here

For your life... open up your heart
For your life... let me hear your voice

For your life... open up your heart
For your life... let me hear your voice

Oh, let me hear you sing
Let me hear you sing

    Hace 18 años me tropecé con "The Black Light", y seguía una relación por casi dos décadas ya que hoy en día, después de que fui un músico e ingeniero de sonidos educado en oeste Texas--después de varias vidas menores que he vivido y fracasos en las carreras debido a la economía debilucha, soy un maestro de español y les comparto a mis estudiantes la banda mejor, la música despampanante, y las temas que nos tocan el corazón. I've never had the pleasure of seeing them live, and may never, but, like so many, I'm no less a fan and I teach these wonderful songs for others who've yet to discover them for themselves.

    Nate Crowder

    If you ever get the chance to see them live, do not miss it. They're even more magical in person.

    Calexio .... get your feet out of the fields and into G+ ;)

    Somebody brings me in Tucson right now. There's something magic there

    Bluehopi Waltz

    Arizona is indeed Magic ......

    November

    I'm listening to this for the first time in the foothills of the mountains overlooking Tucson while it's raining. Nowhere else like it.

    Bluehopi Waltz
