lyrics

How many times now
Have I slept in the sky?
I swallowed the sun
Now there's not a trace of light
Before things grew dim
No trembling hands
Things were harder to take
But easy to understand

All we want is to laugh
On our last holiday
We can pretend for a while
That we never left Santa Fe
Walk the streets and hold my hand
We can trade pesos for pride
We'll accept for a day or two
My place at a woman's side

There's no room to keep
All the shoes that we've outgrown
Yesterday we were new
Now we're lost in old Mexico
Searching for a good excuse
To find one less place to call home
It's always just a matter of time
Till I'm driving north again

Walk down the beach
And just sip in the breeze
There's no one to care for
And only one to please

All we want is to laugh
On our last holiday
We can pretend for a while
That we never left Santa Fe
Walk the streets and hold my hand
We can trade pesos for pride
We'll accept for a day or two
My place at a woman's side

Their live act presents a mix of originals and covers, Americana and world, old and new. ... more
