The day you lie next to me,butterflies in the sky
the other day I hate you more than ever
you are the one,you're nobody,you're everything I care,
but I don't know if I'll love you forever.

Oh what crazy things I say
I always knew we're meant to be together,
but oh my something keeps saying no
and in the end I'll say "Goodbye My Lover".

Sitting here,I'm all alone,I'm smoking in the dark
keep wondering "Hey baby should I have left you?"
if I believed in fairy tales then surely I would know
that all my dreams came true the day I met you.

Oh what crazy things I say,
I always knew there would be no tomorrow
and oh my everything has stopped
and in the end my heart is full of sorrow.

Oh what crazy things I say,
I always knew we're meant to be together,
but oh my something keeps saying no
and in the end I'll say "Goodbye My Lover".

Oh what crazy things I say,
I always knew there would be no tomorrow
and oh my everything has stopped
and in the end my heart is full of sorrow

the melody.. blissful ..
Had to bump from 7 to 8. 
Bit of a Tom Waits vibe to it, at least to me.

Any song with organ music in it automatically gets bumped two points, 6 -> 8.  Pipe organs bump +4.
This is quite enjoyable.
Same here....7 to 8 rating bump and will need to check out MORE from this album....Long Live RP!!
For a moment there I thought it was the intro to Narcos.
Continental musicians have such a charming way with English language. Americans and Brits can't get away with this.

sadly, me too.... I want those days back ! And listen to this music while strolling down a little narrow street somewhere in Spain, taking the sun in ... *sigh*

Feels like a European village/city rainy day small pub or cafe, strong drink, maybe coffee or clear liquid that makes my eyes water.

Not early, not late...maybe an afternoon after a night before and morning after with new found friend... Just many thoughts, impressions all coming too fast to think about. Just accept, remember and plan for deeper reflection later.

Thanks Bill/RP

 
That's really lovely. I could place myself in the heart of your story with this music and her voice. Merci!

Wacky{#Ask} - but I think I like it {#Yes}
Incredible.  Has everything from South American to Mediterranean sounds and melodies in it, and haunting, sensual vocals.  Dig it!
I almost wish that Bill hadn't added the Play Something Different option, since i need to be exposed to music that challenges me without immediately eighty-sixing it, as I'm inclined to do with this one.
The roller rink organ makes it work for me--the fun balance of her thin, reedy voice with the masculine "thick" organ reedy sound. Cool.

You're assuming that he does. I wonder whether the booze, cigarettes and various stimulants--including those taking a human form--explain a lot of Tom's success and appeal.

Interesting juxtaposition with The Who's "The Rock/Love, Reign O'er Me." The keyboards and vocals on this track are significantly better!

 
That just happened again.... (the transition between two (three) tracks) anyone would have thought there is a reel going round?? Surely not Bill.....
No thanks.....some outdated cantina down south might play this.....tolerable except for the roller rink organ

Just what I was thinking. This would be good sitting on the beach, in a bar, eating some tzatziki, sardines and fried cheese, drinking ouzo while she was playing in the corner.
I'm there.....

The roller-rink organ solo kind of takes away from the rest of it.  Still, not bad.
Nothing to complain about. Smooth and warm.
Sounds a bit like a peaceful day on a place in the middle of Madrid. {#Heartkiss}
Baguette, anyone?{#Daisy} Has a French feel.

If Cayetano came back as a smoked out boozey brawler, she would sound just like this

Wonder if that's a real b3?
{#Heartkiss}Nice!

Sounds like something from 1940's or 50's.
Ouch... that organ really kills the vibe.
