"After the Meteor Showers" as written by and Alejandro Escovedo....
She was pretty as a starlet
Take a photo please
Her skin was soft white luminescence
Like a candle in the wild wind

You can blame the stars
You can blame the wind
You can blame the meteor showers
Or the original sin

Her mind was deep and sharp like poison
And like poison I drank it up
Her lips were red hot like fire
Like fire in a pewter cup

You can blame the stars
You can blame the wind
You can blame the meteor showers
Or the original sin

She was pretty as a starlet
Take a photo please
Her skin was hot white luminescence
Like a candle in the vicious wind

You can blame the stars
You can blame the wind
You can blame the meteor showers
Or the original sin

    Song MeaningI believe the song is a about Alejandro Escavedo's former Nuns bandmate, Jennifer Miro. Unfortunately, Jennifer passed away in 2011 after battling cancer.
