"Canela" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Don't the flowers at your feet smell sweet?
Well, they sure smell sweet to me
And don't the moon way up high shine bright?
Well, it sure shines bright to me
And don't the water on your lips feel good?
Well, it sure feels good to me
And don't the lips on your lips fell good?
Well, they sure feel good to me...

    General CommentGreat song. It's exactly the song that plays in your head when you are first about to kiss the person you might love one day. A bit corny yes but c'mon it's music.

    General CommentI've got another verse to add:

    Don't the mp3 in my iMac sound good
    Well it sure sounds good to me
    Or at least it would sound good if the album were about a half hour shorter
    I mean come on Devendra, you're hot shit but 75 minutes is an awful long time
