"Teclo" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
Long goes the night
Longer the day
Teclo your death
Will send me to my grave

I learned to beg
I learned to pray
Send me his love
Send him to me again
Let me ride
Let me ride
Let me ride on his grace for awhile
Let me ride
Let me ride
Just let me ride on his grace for awhile

Long goes the night
Longer the days
Teclo your death
Will send me to my grave
Let me ride
Let me ride
Just let me ride on his grace for awhile
Let me ride
Let me ride
Just let me ride on your grace for awhile
Just let me ride

    General CommentNo one has Commented? This is an amazing song. Gentle and brutal. Lulling and fragile. Please give it a listen.

    General CommentTeclo (José María Teclo Morelos y Pavón) was the name of a Mexican revolutionary bandit of the late 18th century . No connection to the song I know of, other the the exoticness of the name & maybe his quasi-mystical status.

    General CommentThis song speaks to me of a loss of faith, or feeling as though your "higher power" or god has deserted you. The "narrator" seems to be experiencing some difficulty in their life, and wishes to have the support of some deity-like figure to carry her through.
