Nights we hide between the walls and voices leading on the ground
Arms reaching out, hoping for the chance to start
Hearts holding out waiting for the bells to

Bring my words to all of you and if they ever hear my voice
Hold me in your thoughts laid out twisted in defense,
Hoping for the chance to start

Hearts holding out waiting for the bells to
Send my love to all my friends and if I never make it back
To hold you in my arms again not letting go this time

FWIW: Calexico — Epic (live)
Best band at the Palomino festival last year!  No close second
These guys continue to bore T chit outta me YAWN! 
i don't understand this song still had received only a "9" from, it is clearly worth a 10 and beyond !!!
Calexico + me = <3  {#Bounce}{#Kiss} 
Great live drum sound below a great song.

Completely agree. Went and saw them last Friday. If you have a chance you should too.
Love when Bill plays a song I don't know is live until the end when I hear the applause.
 
Keep the Calexico coming!!
A very evocative piece. Dance close with the lady and one of you has got somebody. 
these guys really rock live
Love me some Calexico!!!!
 
Good to hear he has finally shaped his sound into something more rounded and less duplicitous..
Epic...

I concur ! 100%
A lesser masterpiece. Resting on laurels, as it were.

You are right, the studio version is on Algiers but this live version is on Spirotoso

 
Yes, and Joey has a tendency to sing live quite differently than the studio version....not sure what it may be "called" when a singer does this. I find it a tad disconcerting...But still my favorite band of all time LIVE!!!

I have the album on vinyl sitting right here next to me but it's called "Algiers" instead of "Spiritoso". Same cover, same song.
So sais the interweb on their wikipedia article.

Was that released by a different name too?

dunno about epic but quite likeable
Another band, without RP of whom I would have never heard. 

Excellent, Bill - please keep them coming!  
Maybe the live version of "Algiers"...

My wife & I had a chance to see Calexico when they played a free concert on the New Haven Green this past summer. They opened with this number and put on a great performance!
Love this song!
Calexico is one of those weird bands which I *know* is pretty good, and I think their music is very well put together, but I personally just don't like them.
Very nice song!
you think bill is fixated? good band ,  many plays all good
This live version is actually from the album Spiritoso


I like everything this talented, diverse, passionate band does! This is subdued compared to others, including on this album, but it's good!
The regional public radio station plays these guys every now and then, too. The more I hear, the more I like! Time to go buy some!
Another great discovery!
Agreed - a great live show. Saw them at the Bluebird in January - I had high expectations and it was so much better than I had hoped. {#Dancingbanana}
Tingly...
Best live band ever.........see them!
Oooooohhhhh   - first chance to comment, if I give a 10 then that's going to push it well up the rankings!!
