Letras Face to Face

I’m sick and I’m tired

of these empty days,

When there’s nothing going on,

I wonder does anything remain of

Everything we had before?

I’m always waiting

for a different light

or fortune to come to town,

I was meant to be your satellite

now this light is long long gone.

We cannot stay in here,

we’re wasting away our days

We’re like a brand new link stuck

in the same old chain.

You can´t find a different meaning

In words you’ve used before

So many tears you lose your sight

and lay your wishes down.

You know full well this ain’t our fate

but I told you yesterday

That any road can be your own

So dont´t let it slip away.

We cannot stay in here,

we’re wasting away our days

We’re like a brand new link stuck

in the same old chain.

You´re not the kind of woman, no

who cries over everything

Let me read between your lines

I want to know how it feels…

You´re not the kind of woman, no

who cries over everything

Let me read between your line

I just wanna feel the pain

you’ve got in your heart.

(Morris, Magaña)

Heavy drops of rain leak through

holes in this roof

And I drown in my shame looking for

clues in this spoof

I’ve got every word you said like a

tattooed in my brain

I’m staring at the ceiling,

lying on my bed.

I try, not to break the silence so

I simply whispered your name.

I’m blinded by the light,

more than I’ve ever been before

My eyes are open wide,

but what I see is a blur

A world of empty streets has become

my reocurring dream

Though it’s all in my head, it feels

as real as it can be

As it can be.

I lead a simple life but

I´m still unfullfilled

And the things I treasure most are

bursting at the seams

A world of silent ghosts has become

my recurring dream

Though it’s all in my head

it feels as real as it can be

As it can be.

At night I dance around the bonfire

Beneath the pale moonlight and the stars

I dance in circles round the bonfire

And I know the night is mine.

No matter how hard you try,

you won´t avoid your fate

You’re still waiting for your turn

when you find out it’s too late

While a million empty thoughts

are racing through your head

Now you know how it feels to walk

among the living dead.

(Morris, Escutia)

When you look up and everything is huge

and you can’t see the sky

close your eyes

When your body shrinks and you are

scared to death and everything is tense

close your eyes.

Can you hear, can you feel?

Somebody’s out there.

When people walk past you in a crowd

and avoid catching your eye

open your mind

If you can hear the sound of footsteps

on your trail

and you feel mighty trapped

close your eyes.

Can you hear, can you feel?

Somebody’s out there.

Can you hear, can you feel?

Somebody’s out there.

Unfurl your wings and try to relax

‘Cos you will soar until the sun melts the wax.

When you have your shadow stolen by a stranger

in the never ending rain

close your eyes.

When your heart is darker than the blackest night

and you lose your sight

open your mind.

(Morris)

Do you remember at the start

you had a dream

But now it’s just a wake-up call

I can´t abide the reason why

we´re getting old

It´s gonna come as no surprise once

and for all.

What can I hide in an empty room

What can I seek if all’s lost

A stitch in time saves nine,

that’s what they say

An I still chasing your ghost ?

They say “just ease your worried mind”

and rest a while

But I’ve been idle all these years

With all the wrinkles on my face

and in my heart

I find it hard to shed my tears.

(Morris, Magaña)

I travelled on each and every road

I travelled far and wide

But I’m back where I started

I’m close to your heart

I had my ups and downs

I’ve been pulling rabbits out of hats

But I’m back on my feet

I’m close to your heart

I hid my face behind a mask

‘Till I no longer knew who I was

I came out of the haze

I’m close to your heart

I was against the ropes

And I never threw in the towel

But I’m back on my feet

I’m close to your heart

New day, It’s a brand new day,

Let’s make a brand new start

Brand new day,

Let’s make a brand new start

I travelled on each and every road

And whether I was right or wrong

Any road I’d take

Took me back to your door

I was on a loser streak

But I’m beginning to see the light

And I’m back on my feet

I’m close to your heart.

(Morris, Escutia)

Could you hear me through the distance?

As the wind blew back your hair

Did you strain your eyes

trying to read my lips

As I was mumbling Fare Thee Well.

Have no fear. Have no fear,

I won’t stray from the path

Have no fear.

Who could dare to steal your thunder?

Who could dare to sell you a lie?

You knew all they said about me

and they were right

I lie at least three times a night.

Have no fear. Have no fear,

I won’t stray from the path

Have no fear.

When everybody’s gone,

before they dim the lights.

I feel I’m out of place,

I know I’ve gone too far.

The lines across my face,

are like a telltale sign.

End up the same old way,

trying to relive the past.

I get lost in a stranger,

trapped in a nameless room.

But no amount of shadows

could turn her into you.

And when the harm is done,

when there’s no turning back.

I’ll wish I were somewhere else,

somewhere really far.

All my worn out excuses,

do not amount to much.

However much I fool myself,

I’m simply losing touch.

And that’s the awful truth.

(Morris, Escutia)

Drop the needle on the vinyl

Do it quick, come back to bed

You know we have nothing to do

And a whole new day ahead.

We don’t have to speak

We don’t have to say a thing

So leave your troubles at the door

Forget about the world

We might as well stay in

Tell me, who could ask for more?

Today our lives will spin

You can count on this.

At thirty-three and a third

There’s nothing else I’d rather do

Than be with you

And these Sunday records for two.

We can lie here skin to skin

And throw caution to the wind

You know anything can happen

When I’m with you and you’re with me.

(Morris, Escutia)

One day he came from out of nowhere

a wicked smile on his face

Spreading pearls of wisdom

and lots of promises he never kept.

He had a word of hope

For every ear

He was all looks and charm

How could we ever fall for that?

Way back when, in his heyday

we believed nothing could go wrong

But good intentions and blind faith

weren’t meant to last that long.

He told us what to do

And we all followed suit

He was all looks and charm

How could we ever fall for that?

How could you break a nation’s heart?

How dare you look us in the eye?

One day you’re gonna pay for that

Go back where you belong

We´ve had enough of your kind.

His promises wore out

Like most of them always do

And when the dream was gone

we had to face up to the truth.

He fooled me and you

Like false prophets do

He was all looks and charm

How could we ever fall for that?

(Morris, Escutia)

I’m starting to think

this is no longer fun

I must assume I’m not the only one

Whatever happened

to whoever we were?

We´re nothing but shadows

of our former selves.

Does anyone here

remember ’66?

Who could have known

we’d end up like this?

We’re the landed gentry,

we´re like your worst dream

Can’t even remember

who we used to be.

When you’re against the ropes

And your luck is hanging upside down

When you’re out of hopes

Just remember you once wore the crown.

We used to chase

the dragon all night

We held the world

in the palms of our hands

It was good for a while

but it didn’t last long

All there is now

is this boring swan song.

(Morris, V. Magaña, Escutia)

I get lost in your eyes and

see the girl you were before

Now they reveal to me

the fine young woman you´ve become.

From your first breath of life

I´d cradle you in my arms

And silence screamed in hungry words.

You, young lady of my heart

You could never break apart

My world created by your love.

Life went on and you took

the best in me and so much more

The wind blew through your dreams,

and a wolf slept at your door.

From your first breath of life

I´d cradle you in my arms

And silence screamed in hungry words.

You, young lady of my heart

You could never bread apart

My world created by your love.

In your deep dark eyes I see

the dreams I had before

It´s time you went your own

way now and close this door.

So smile and dance while you still can

Enjoy your precious time

Yours truly, your partner in crime.

I look at you and what I see

is beyond my wildest dreams

I thought I´d let you know

that to me you´re everything.

Am I not making myself clear?

Cos you´re what makes me real

Yours truly, your partner in crime.

My world created by your love.

(Morris)

I became part of your collection

on a dreadful summer night

A notch for every soul you trapped,

a notch for every broken heart

At times like this

I wish I could turn back the clock

At times like this

all I can do is carry on.

I paced the floors waiting up for you,

well, far too many times

I’ve drowned my demons in a bottle,

seen the outline of your lies

I’ve wallowed in self pity and bled inside

I’ve stooped so low

I cannot hold my head up high.

Hope you’re doing well in your private hell

with your rather empty life

Keep the distance, stay away

and let sleeping dogs lie

One day I’ll look back on this and laugh

But for now, my love,

you can kiss my ass goodbye.

Ohhh, I feel I’m walking on a wire

I’m walking on a wire with fire in my eyes.

I will not waste my breath

Talking about the past

I’m on a different page tonight

I will not make amends

Or try to make things right

I’m on a different page tonight

And I swear, I swear,

I swear that I don’t mind

(Morris, Escutia)

Close your eyes and lift the stars up

so your sky is filled with light

And let your soul be caught

in your own dreams

Don’t let anyone dare

to steal your dry tears

I wonder what would happen

if you gave up the fight

Throw punches in the wind

and scream ‘till your voice is gone

Make up your own rules

and stick to your guns.

Hang on to your dreams

It all comes down to this

Hang on to your dreams

Cos you can do anything

Let your kite fly high until

it’s out of sight

Do what you need to do

to get some peace of mind

Don’t follow any road,

don’t follow any signs

Things always happen

That’s why…

(Morris)

I ´m looking for you

Everywhere I go

I feel something is

happening in my head.

Try to loosen up

And make yourself at home

This round’s on me

Let’s have another beer.

We’ve nothing to lose

In our simple lives

We are happy

I can see it in your eyes.

I know it now

As I knew back then

We need these precious moments

every day.

(Morris)
