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]
... Doll

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

(Sweet Spanish... Sweet)

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

(Sweet... Sweet...)

Mommy, how come you cry?

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

(Sweet Spanish... Sweet)

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

How come it's a house of leaves?

(Sweet Spanish... Sweet Spanish)

How come it's a house of leaves?

Spanish doll: Recuérdame
