Along the coast shrouded by fog
A voice hovers so sweet and soft
The lure of lust no one can deny
A pile of bones hidden from sight

To save this sad, lonesome cry
Sorrow fills the oceans wide
Calling you close, promising love
Letting passion navigate you

Into the arms of sirena
Into the eyes of sirena
Into the heart of sirena
Dancing like ghosts, haunting the shore

The old ones warn, stay away
Her love is sweet, but sorrow too great
Dreams of leaving her curse for good
Rise from the sea as flesh and blood

Still the wind carries her voice
Fills all thoughts, sways your choice
Drawn the fear, capsize the heart
Till all passion navigates you

Into the arms of sirena
Into the eyes of sirena
Into the heart of sirena
Dancing like ghosts over the waves
Safe in the harber of her embrace

Bebe mi vino de amor
Besos de kerosina
Volvierdo el mar en infierno!

To save this sad, tragic soul
Sorrow's worse than the tide's pull
Sinking deeper, gasping for love
Till desire navigates you

Into the arms of sirena
Into the eyes of sirena
Into the heart of sirena
Dancing with ghosts under the waves

And into the arms of sirena
Into the eyes of sirena
Into the heart of sirena
Caught in the rip tide, smashed on the reef
Joining the mass of bones underneath

Hence my 7 rating. Love them horns. 
One of my favourite songs.

Frankly, I think Ian Brown should sing lead on this!  I like Calexico but sometimes I find the lead singer's voice is a little to soft for this type of music.

 

Yes, I totally agree, but the instrumentation of this one kicks a$$.

Excellent piece! I'm sure the album will be just perfect as soundtrack for my summer.
