"Wandering Alone" as written by and Martin/murdoch/colburn/cooke/geddes/jackson/campbe....
Wandering alone on the ridge of the coast
Lost to the world he had known as a boy
He knows his lover lies south in the city
Passing along and as sleepy as night
Warm in the woods that conceal him from light
He is accustomed to hiding from people

Taking his time as he crosses the bridge
Holding the flowers he picked from the ridge
Walking in shadows to his senorita

Safe in the dawn he gets under the sheets
His Senorita a heavenly sweet soul
That was put there to save and protect him

He knows that time can not endlessly go
Traps will be set by the people below
She will be caught too and he could not bear it

Hope in the freedom he can almost touch
Folk take for granted as they walk to church
He says his prayers and God listens to him

Sir all I want is a chance to amend
Past infidelities please do not send
Me far away from my wise
Me far away from my wise
Me far away from my wise Senorita

    General CommentNo comments? This song is amazing. When I read it, I interpret it as a man who is caught up in infidelity with his true love, his senorita. He's overcome by guilt, and there's all this sinful imagery; she's from the "south," he meets her in "shadows," and he's begging God to protect what they have together even though it seems wrong. She's his "wise senorita," the one that he feels was put there to "save and protect him." He fears for her, that she will be caught, which is more than he can bear. It seems like he turns to God, saying that he won't do this again, he won't repeat past infidelities as long as God doesn't send him away from his wise senorita. It seems a bit like he's praying for God to watch over them, and maybe God says, "OK" or maybe He smites them... Just my screwball interpretation. Of course, I could be way off.
