Au Revoir 03:36
Music & Lyrics Xavi Malacara lyrics Au Revoir she said Au Revoir she's gone so far away that it seems she was never here before Don't leave me here don't you leave me here I prayed before she left. She showed me her worst face I promised things I promised things that didn’t go but she gave me a wedding ring and deadline and that was the end When the night falls now when the darkness falls silver planes fly over roofs when the darkness falls I was shy at first she was bold all the time at the end she cried me a river like a little child When the coffee cools when a cigarette burns a french perfume smells that don’t let me sleep She tried to be good almost she got it She let me be the king and for a while she was my queen She had no mercy didn’t hesitate she ate a piece of me and spat the rest, didn't hesitate

I’m gonna buy what I fancy. Put her at my backdoor I’m gonna buy what I fancy. Put her at my backdoor The way is clear babe active thinking right now When she shakes her ass for me I can bear the pain When she moves her ass for me I pretend I don’t care It's what a gentleman should do to please his maid What I want is a slinky girl. She won't dance all night long? What I want is a fancy girl. She won't dance 'fore day? I‘d like to stay with her when the day starts to end I can recognize my faults without an ounce of shame I can admit my sins while I kiss her legs I'm not proud but I won’t change this for anything else Mama was always so hard about all my mistakes Mama was not always fair. Now I struggle to find myself She let me rest my head on her breasts I see my love in any place and I hear her moan I know my love is anywhere and I hear her moan I can drive my life if I feel her in the dark

Jesus I'm hopeless Jesus I forgot the way I felt forgotten and decided to keep in a blind alley Don’t expect any good babe Don’t expect any good with me I lost my faith gambling I lost my faith one summer night I like going to church while the priest takes a nap Jesus forgive my sins Jesus forgive me if you think I’ve sinned Some nights I see the devil some he sleeps with me I lost my faith gambling I lost my faith one summer night The day turns grey I confuse the night with pain You forgot my name for a while I’m a hopeless man Jesus I’m hopeless Jesus I forgot the way I'm not mad at you I’m not alone but I'm not crowded at all I found love on my way Someone stole my sadness I can’t lose more that I got neither get rid of my roots

Robbie Rose 04:00
I drove slowly down the road of blues Slowly I drove my car on the road of blues from New Orleans I drove my car down the road of blues It was late at night but the music never stopped It was late at night but the music never stopped I tried to sleep but the blues didn’t stop I'm going where the Mississippi River meets the Wolf I'm going where the Mississippi River meets the Wolf I wanna get to Beale Street to rest my bones Some people said I should meet Robbie Rose other people said I should meet Robbie Rose at Room Boogie I met the great Robbie Rose Down through the red and blue neon way Down through the red and blue neon way I took my harp in my pocket and nothing more I was worried about not living good I was worried not living good. But I still Robbie Rose gave me a chance to perform and I did

I can live with less with almost nothing I could pick your hair or bring you to the beach but I can’t see the sky my eyes are so burned that I can’t hide it. Neither keep your gaze I can cross the border with just a cocaine line I can go down the river unable to feel pain Let me smell your hair only just for once. Give me a cigarrette and I’ll give you a rest I live like a river going down I feel like free bird going down but I can cross the desert through the thin line at dawn But I can cross the ocean through the thin line at dawn I can’t stop my tears but I can hide them I can say that I can and then leave you nothing. You say I have no choice. You might be right There are many things that cost and those that count
7.
I tried to behave myself resting in the last ditch I am just a passenger but it's not too late yet For each uncut flower I would pay a dime “you’re guilty” my wife said but it's still not too late It’s the way to redeem myself to justify my faults My father dressed smart He was a worthy man He taught me to work He forgot to say the truth For dignity lives on the edge it's still not too late Every man is a poet though they don’t know Only love can wake you but it's still not to late I saw people losing everything Waiting for broken promises

Melvina 03:30
I know you, you walked on my tracks Hey Melvina Hey Melvina you move with ease waves not erasing the trail I left behind I've seen it before you give a charming look Hey Melvina Hey Melvina un deux trois you go to smash my battered heart A extra shot of bourbon and I’ll be on the dance floor Hey Melvina Hey Melvina you try to fuss and I’m a weak man so I’ll marry you You wipe with a claw my stupid grin Hey Melvina Hey Melvina you dance from a life-boat and I can’t reach your shore

You always say that I am a dark dude You always say I keep secrets in my wallet Splashing in Cloaca Splashing in Cloaca I am not an angel but girls want to lay down with me A boogie in Cloaca A boggie in Cloaca A boogie in Cloaca A boogie in Cloaca this is my invite to dance a boogie boogie in Cloaca For once! you could forget your reputation For Twice! might you think you can stand all over me? Splashing in Cloaca
