The Decemberists – O Valencia! lyrics

You belong to the gang
And you say you can't break away
But I'm here with my hands on my heart

Our families can't agree
I'm your brother's sworn enemy
But I'd shout out my love to the stars

So await for the stone on your window, your window
Await by the car and we'll go, we'll go

When first we laid eyes
I swore to no compromise
'Til I felt my caress
On your skin

Well how soon we were betrayed!
Your sister gave us away
And your father came all
Unhinged

So await for the stone on your window, your window
Await by the car and we'll go, we'll go,

But O Valencia!
With your blood still warm on the groud
Valencia!
And I swear to the stars I'll burn this whole city down

All I heard was the shout
Of your brother calling me out
And you ran like a fool
To my side

Well, the shot it hit hard
And your frame went limp in my arms
And an oath of love
Was your dying cry

So await for the stone on your window, your window
Await by the car and we'll go, we'll go

But O Valencia!
With your blood still warm on the groud
Valencia!
And I'll burn this whole city down

Valencia!
With your blood getting cold on the groud
Valencia!
And I swear to the stars I'll burn this whole city down
