Poe — Spanish Doll lyrics

This place feels so unfamiliar
And yet I know it well
I think I used to belong here
But the only way I can tell
Is that I miss you still
And I cannot find you here
You left me tattered and torn
Just like that Sweet Spanish doll

(Sweet Spanish... Sweet Spanish...) doll

I went down to the alley way
(Sierra la Bonita)
And found that you were gone
Spanish doll: si nunca te fueras (if you would never leave)
You left no word no message
I still don't know
Exactly what went wrong
Spanish doll: lágrimas (tears)
But now no matter where I go
I always seem to return
Spanish doll: búscame (find me)
To where you left me tattered and torn
Spanish doll: yo estoy rompido mi muñeca (I am torn
My sweet doll)
Just like that sweet Spanish doll

(Sweet spanish... Sweet Spanish doll)

A memory guilded in red and gold
Spanish doll: del oro (of gold)
Beauty guarded and never sold
Spanish doll: cuídame (protect me)
I keep it with me wherever I go
And I love you still
Spanish doll: Recuérdame (remember me)
No matter how a story will unfold
You know I always will
Spanish doll: Rescátame (Rescue Me)
Have part of you here
In this souvenir
(Spanish doll)

A stranger in this world without you
Is all that I can ever be
All I know that's pure and clear
You left it with me here
In this souvenir
Spanish... [fading]
Spanish...
Spanish...
... Doll

Man:
And here is father and lovely daughter, shot down in her
Mistaken flight...

(Sweet Spanish... Sweet)

Man:
.... Unaware yet how her life will be
Affected by this... Experience.

(Sweet... Sweet...)

Girl:
Mommy, how come you cry?

Man:
While what was really happened was in the years of her childhood...

(Sweet Spanish... Sweet)

Man:
Perhaps that is where the real story is: in her family house.

Girl:
How come it's a house of leaves?

(Sweet Spanish... Sweet Spanish)

Girl:
How come it's a house of leaves?

Spanish doll: Recuérdame

(Applause)
