Curandera Lyrics
i’ve taken a lover into my bed
whispers of Spanish float ’round her head
and sometimes her skin smells like chilis and sunlight
and sometimes she wakes
in the middle of the night
she gets long distance calls from Barranca del Cobre
something about her always looks hungry
and i want her so much i’ll follow wherever she goes
but i don’t see the thorns here for the rose
and high up/in Mexico
Curanderas bought her soul
now i see shadows/at high noon
and my heart changes/with the moon
she went to say Hail Marys down at the mission
says she’s on the hook for the sin of sedition
what union she’s running from just her confessor can tell
but today i have not heard them sound the bell
and high up/in Mexico
Curanderas bought her soul
now i see shadows/at high noon
and my heart changes/with the moon
oh, mother of pearl/birds of paradise
Sierra Madre earth/Cuernavaca night
and i feel a burning through her skin
branded by her tears
like an animal she cries out
but i see nothing
nothing in her mirrors
i try to tell her the things i can’t show her
she drops the needle, the music takes over
we dance until the blood flows and the saints intervene
and she prays for just one night without any dreams
and high up/in Mexico
Curanderas bought her soul
now i see shadows/at high noon
and my heart changes/with the moon
