Mexico 03:37
I go cross the southern border Down to mexico There’s a place I like to go Only you and I know Baby you’re my sanctum When I need an escape You’re all I ever think of When I’m stuck here in the states The cobblestone streets Living with ease In Coyoacan The mezcal nights Holding me tight In your arms, my love I come undone Ohhh, be my Mexico baby Ohhh, you are my Mexico Ohhh, when life gets crazy I go down south to feel the warmth of Mexico Wouldn’t it be nice If we could stay a while Nothing else compares To our affair, so juvenile Light your cigarette, my love Let’s stay forever young I’ll swim in your ocean In slow motion ‘til I drown The mornings we laid In the home we made In Coyoacan I watch you sleep As the sun starts to peak in And I let myself come undone Ohhh, be my Mexico baby Ohhh, you are my Mexico Ohhh, when life gets so crazy I go down south to feel the warmth of Mexico I go down south to feel the warmth of Mexico Take me to your mountain top I wanna lose myself in you, and never stop You were made in the eyes of God And I know, we were, meant to love Ohhh, be my Mexico baby Ohhh, you are my Mexico Ohhh, when life gets so crazy I go down south to feel the warmth of Mexico I go down south to feel the warmth of Mexico I go down south to feel the warmth of my Mexico

Jesus was a woman But nobody remembers that way She would be forgotten But she loved them all just the same It is her who saves me every time I go astray Jesus was a woman So to her I kneel and pray Ohhhh, Ohhhh Ohhhh, Ohhhh We are on track To start a revolution Look to the past Don't pick another young son 'Cause I'm building up my empire out of dust Will it every be good enough? I know being born this way is hard (But I try) When daddy thinks you're not gonna go far (Woman, woman, woman, woman) I know that I'm gonna be a star (I know why) 'Cause I feel in my heart (Woman, woman, woman, woman) Jesus was a woman, ohh Jesus was a woman, ohh I've spent sleepless nights With my lovers and friends Now I've seen the light I'm never going back again 'Cause we only need a little love to live And I've got so much to give I know being born this way is hard (But I try) When daddy thinks you're not gonna go far (Woman, woman, woman, woman) I know that I'm gonna be a star (I know why) 'Cause I feel in my heart (Woman, woman, woman, woman) Jesus was a woman, ohh Jesus was a woman, ohh Ohhhh, Ohhhh Ohhhh, Ohhhh Heavinly father You had a daughter Tell me you didn't send her away Tell me you loved her That you were proud of her Well can you at least tell me her name? I know being born this way is hard When daddy thinks you're not gonna go far But I know that I'm gonna be a star Cause I feel in my heart Jesus was a woman But nobody remembers that way She would be forgotten So I'm following the light of her flame It is her who saves me every time I go astray Jesus was a woman So to her I kneel and pray Jesus was a woman, ohh (Ohhhh, Ohhhh) Jesus was a woman, ohh (Ohhhh, Ohhhh) Jesus was a woman, ohh (Ohhhh, Ohhhh) Jesus was a woman

Turbulencia 03:20
Like the river that rages to the east We were strong, we moved fast But our moment could not last Once my arms met the mouth of your sea The branches that grow thick upon the trees Won't survive the winter storm They will break, and they will fall Just like me Just like me Oh, what happens to the ones who believe? They hold on long enough to see How to weather all the elements of A turbulent love I've done my best to pretend When we move in the dark I am still, while you do your part Now it's quiet while we wait for the end I don't know if I can do this again You are strong, you are pure While I'm still so unsure If it's better to give up Or give in Oh, what happens to the ones who believe? They hold on long enough to see How to weather all the elements of A turbulent love

It was February, I was cold and closed I left New York City, searching for a sweeter road You warmed my body, kept my mind full But it was the summer sun that won my soul We lived in an endless summer In love til the sun went down And I knew when it was over that the night would come You were all I needed to find my eternal love I had to find my happiness at home So I can feel in love when I'm alone Heaven's not a place, heaven is a feeling Love that you create is how you get the real thing Baby, I adore you but it's not the same 'Cause the woman in my mind is the one who lights my flame We lived in an endless summer In love til the sun went down And I knew when it was over that the night would come You were all I needed to find my eternal love I had to find my happiness at home So I can feel in love when I'm alone Come on baby, light my flame I wanna feel your light again All my love went pouring out I had to find a way for it to come back in We lived in an endless summer In love til the sun went down And I knew when it was over that the night would come You were all I needed to find my eternal love We lived in an endless summer In love til the sun went down And I knew when it was over that the night would come You were all I needed to find my eternal love I had to find my happiness at home So I can feel in love when I'm alone We lived in an endless summer In love til the sun went down And I knew when it was over that the night would come You were all I needed to find my eternal love I had to find my happiness at home So I can feel in love when I'm alone

Mamma isn't happy I'm not coming home 'Cause I spent all my money just to see you Sold all my things, gave away my clothes I know that I won't need them with you 'Cause love is my religion No matter where I'm livin' I drop it all and give in To the power of your love I know that there's no stoppin' Once the beat of my heart drops in All my worries are forgotten 'Cause I know that you're the one You're the one, you're the one You're the one, you're the one All of my friends think that I'm crazy Trading in my life for you But I'm convinced that they have never felt this way It's like floating on a cloud inside my childhood bedroom Love is my religion No matter where I'm livin' I drop it all and give in To the power of your love I know that there's no stoppin' Once the beat of my heart drops in All my worries are forgotten 'Cause I know that you're the one You're the one, you're the one You're the one, you're the one All my old flames have been abandoned No more time to waste on stand-ins 'Cause I'm aware of a higher power's hand in The making of us Love is precious like a diamond And I've been blessed enough to find it Now I am just a humble worshiper Of love Love is my religion No matter where I'm livin' I drop it all and give in To the power of your love I know that there's no stoppin' Once the beat of my heart drops in All my worries are forgotten 'Cause I know, 'cause I know, 'cause I know Love is my religion No matter where I'm livin' I drop it all and give in To the power of your love I know that there's no stoppin' Once the beat of my heart drops in All my worries are forgotten 'Cause I know that you're the one You're the one, you're the one You're the one, you're the one You and I made a heaven Proved that God is all of us And I'm so grateful every day I'm alive To have known your love

Rae Isla Brooklyn, New York

Hi, I'm Rae. If you're here, it's because you like magical realism books, driving on the open road, and Americana music that sounds like Enya made a song with Aldous harding at a dive bar in Montana.
