"Santa Maria de Feira" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Pensando cada día, cada hora
Pensando en ti
Caminando, mi cesta llena de moras
Son para ti
Temprano por la tarde y por la noche
Sueño de ti

Comiendo pera
En santa maría de la feria
Que placer
La gente buena solo goza nunca hay pena
Pa' que sufrir
Jugando en el mar, en la arena
Viviendo así

Ventana blanca
Ay, que venga la mañana
Ay que venga otra vez
Esperando
Así es como yo paso mi tiempo
Esperando a Inaniel
Y rezando por su calor, por su aliento
Sobre mi piel

Te digo todo aquí va bien
Conmigo de no dormir
Amigo, te lo suplico, te lo pido
Que me ayudes a mi, a mi

Buscando
Con mi ancla en la marea
Nadando en ti
Yo voy andando
Óyeme, te estoy llamando
Te amo a ti

Por el valle me encontré un rio escondido
Me recuerdo, hacía calor pero tenia frio
Me iba a morir

Bianca
Ay paloma angelina
Por fin te vi

    General Commenthere's the lyrics in English... you get advised: they are quite nonsense!
    anyway, i think the song is cool... maybe devendra needs to take some Spanish classes... ;-)

    thinking / every day, every hour / thinking of you
    walking / my basket full of mulberries / they're for you
    early / by the day and the night / i dream of you

    larilarilarilarairirairirai...

    eating pears / in Santa María de La Feira / what a pleasure going there
    good people / only enjoys, there's never sorrow / there's no reason to suffer
    playing / in the sea, in the sand / living this way

    larilarilarilarairirairirai...

    white window / oh, i want the morning to come / want it to come back once again
    waiting / that's the way i spend my time / waiting for Inaniel
    and praying / for her warmth, fo her breath / over my skin

    my friend, i tell you everything's going right on here, but sleeping
    my friend i beg you to help me, me

    searching / with my anchor on the tide / swimming on you
    i'm already going / hear me, i'm telling you / i love you
    by the valley / i found a hidden river / i drown on it

    and i remember / it was warm, but i was cold / i was going to die
    Bianca / oh Paloma and Angelina / finally i saw you

    finally i saw you...

    ohhh...

    General CommentPS: Santa Maria da Feira (in Spanish: Santa María de la Feria") is a city in Portugal and Inaniel, Bianca, Paloma and Angelina are women names.

    General CommentI think Devendra said that he feels more comfortable writing simple love song lyrics in Spanish than in English. It's a beautiful song. This is the kind of song in which I think he's channeling Caetano Veloso rather than Marc Bolan.

    General CommentI always thought it was "hay que venga la manana / hay que venga otra vez." it's pronounced the same as "ay," but has a slightly different meaning that made more sense to me: "the morning has to come, the morning must come again." it's inevitable that the morning will come even though he wishes the night would last forever with his lover? i don't know... just my 2 cents.
