São Paulo

This song is by Guillemots and appears on the album Through the Windowpane (2006).

Sit down my love of open spaces
And breathe my love, let's all be spent
I'm going to tell you both a story
About some memories that I dreamt

See I've lost love in many places
Not least the streets of São Paulo
And friends especially, I didn't make them
A ten floor window to her home
Sometimes I could cry for miles
Sometimes I could cry for miles
Sometimes I could cry for miles
But I don't

So hush the shadows in the oak tree
Be still you curl upon the moor
My heart has fallen upon the wayside
I cannot claim her anymore
So don your duffel coats quite slowly
And this sad jury has ajurned
While on the streets of old São Paulo
I watch my baby being burned

Sometimes I could cry for miles
Sometimes I could cry for miles
Sometimes I could cry for miles
But I don't

Sometimes I could cry, ah sometimes
Drop my bags and run for miles
And sometimes I could live my lives
But I won't, but I won't

Have you ever been thrown across the water
Have you ever been thrown across the water
Have you ever been thrown across the water
Till there's no skin left on your bones

Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water, like a stone

Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water, like a stone

Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water, like a stone

Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water, like a stone

Get me a doctor, get me a doctor
Who will get rid of my bones

Get me a lover, get me a lover
Who will leave my head alone

Get me a soldier, get me a soldier
Who will fight me pointless war

Get me an exit, I need an exit
I need a window or door

Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water, like a stone

Get me a lawyer, get me a lawyer
Who will sue the world for me

Get me a person, get me a person
Get me a person who isn't me

'Cause I'm getting tired
I'm getting tired
Of my stupid little face

'Cause I don't belong here
I don't belong here
Don't belong in this horse race

Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water, like a stone

Thrown across water, thrown across water
Thrown across water, like a stone
