The candle burns on through the night
The wax gets deeper
Interrupts the moonbeams with its light
The clock hands turn, but time don’t
Change at all
I’m waiting for the sun
God knows I ain’t sleeping tonight
Its much too cold between these sheets
I miss Rita by my side
You know she left me so many times
But she always comes home
I can’t help but wonder though
Every time she feels compelled to go
If she’s coming home or leavin’ me alone
She hurts me hurts me hurts me hurts me
So bad
Every day, in some or another way
I don’t think I’ll ever learn
So i’ll stay right here in this moment
While the clock forever turns
I was jamming on tubano
when Rita came along
Thrust me a guitar and
Asked to hear her favorite song
I played it pretty flawless
So she sampled in her tongue
Love that I was tasting
So I repeated what I sung
And she kissed me even deeper
And asked if she could stay the night
Cause Rita can’t resist it
When I play the shit I write
Yeah she knows there’s a bit of her
In everything I scribble down
She knows she breaks my heart
Whenever she is not around
She knows I’m helpless
Against her power
She knows it’s her that turns these years
Into hours
And everytime she says my name
I get those little shivers up and down my neck
And I wonder yes
I wonder all the time
If Rita my baby is ever coming back
