"Burn It Blue" as written by and Julie/goldenthal Taymor....
Burn this house
Burn it blue
Heart running on empty
So lost without you

But the night sky blooms with fire
And the burning bed floats higher
And she's free to fly

Woman so weary
Spread your broken wings
Fly free as the swallow sings
Come to the firework
See the dark lady smiles
She burns

And the night sky blooms with fire
And the burning bed floats higher
And she's free to fly

Burn this night
Black and blue
So cold in the morning
So cold without you

And the night sky blooms with fire
(Y la noche que se encendia)
And the burning bed floats higher
(Y la cama que lleva)
And she's free to fly
(A volar)

And all of the dark days
Painted in dark grey hues
They fade with the dream of you
Wrapped in red velvet
Dancing the night away
I burn

Midnight blue
Spread those wings
Fly free with the swallows
Fly
One with the wind

why él es flama que se lleva
Why es un pájaro a volar
Why es un pájaro a volar
En la noche que se encendió
(...)
Luces del cielo

And the night sky blooms with fire
(Y eres flama que se lleva)
And the burning bed floats higher
(Y eres un pajaro a volar)
And she´s free to fly
(Y eres un pajaro a volar)
Just a swallow in the sky
(Y eres la noche que se encendia)
...
Much brighter
(bla bla bla why la oscuridad)

Burn this house
Burn it blue
Heart running on empty
So lost without you

    General CommentYeah its mostly performed by Caetano Veloso. This song is SO GORGEOUS and sung quite beautifully. You can feel the passion in the music. I think its about breaking free from your chains or from whatever holds you down and being free even if that means only in your dreams. Im absolutely enthralled by Frida Kahlo.
