"La Llorona" as written by and Zach Condon....
Ever away from seeing more than life
The morning lies miles away from the night
No man ever could steal her heart
But With bright gold coins I'll take my shot

And all it takes to fall
If you don't walk, might as well crawl

All it takes to fall
What a quiet world after all
Of the things that you guessed will come
What a moment it was after all

    General Comment This kind of melodious brilliance is seldom found in today's world of bad taste. It's comforting to know that Beirut is living up to their name in this new album.

    On a similar note, this song is absolutely beautiful- I especially love the "easy on the ears" trumpets in the background. It makes the song, I swear.

    General CommentEver away from seeing more than life
    The morning lies miles away from the night
    No man ever could steal her heart
    But With bright gold coins I’ll take my shot

    And all it takes to fall
    If you don’t walk, might as well crawl

    All it takes to fall
    What a quiet world after all
    Of the things that you guessed will come
    What a moment it was after all

    General CommentTo me this song is telling you to take a chance and go and get what you want for yourself. The end lyrics seem to say something about most people don't speak up.

    Btw, he has the most beautiful voice EVER!

    Song MeaningIt's about La Llorona, a Mexican spirit. She drowned her sons in a river, and you can hear her crying for them.
