Sweet Christina

This song is partially inspired by the book I just read and partially inspired by the San Diego (and Mexican) culture I’ve been absorbing lately (the cultural undertones are clearer when you hear it – I’ll upload a recording sometime).

No it’s not what we said
We never were perfect
And the sound in your eyes
Left lullabies
Behind

Well we stood where we stand
And you made me a man
Tell me no lies
This is goodbye
I feel fine

There were tears in her eyes
I may have shut mine
To block out the sound
Of everything circling
Round and round

No it’s not what we said
We never were perfect
Say it to me
We always were mean
But never came clean

And all along!
All along you loved me
But we’ve said our goodbyes
I’ll make peace with mine
And forget about your eyes

Your sweet sweet eyes
Sweet Christina
Sweet la la la
La la la la-la-la-la

Hmm hmm hmm…
