Sit down here in the alley
Where no one can see you cry
Trouble dogs us like a shadow
Though I cannot tell you why
Life is a fine and fleeting moment
Bittersweet and hard as stone
I can't change what fate has dealt you
But no one should walk alone

Fly Away La Paloma
Take my love when you go
Where no one can harm you
And there's nothing you need
It's not as far as we believe

Somewhere a door is opening
While another door is closed
Sunset wraps its shawl of color
From here to Mexico
There's the sound of wings around you
Like the rustle of a skirt
Gone before you know it
All those tender little birds

Fly Away La Paloma
Take my love when you go
Where no one can harm you
And there's nothing you need
It's not as far as we believe

I dreamt I was walking
In an old familiar country
I thought I heard you singing
But I think I was just hungry
It's so many years behind me
Yet there's really no escape
No mater where we go
We still take our own landscapes

The full moon bows her head
And the she's putting on her veil
A whippoorwill is calling
And mourning dove exhale
Smell the night jasmine blooming
Someone's turning down the sheets
Forever opens up her arms
As the rain washes the streets

Fly Away La Paloma
Take my love when you go
Where no one can harm you
And there's nothing you need
It's not as far as we believe

Fly Away La Paloma
La Paloma
Fly Away
