about

Means "the city" in Spanish. It's about a hard break-up that you knew had to happen.

lyrics

Ten and ten and five and five-
I’m going for a real short ride
To take my heart and dump it oceanside.
Four and four and eight and eight-
You’re going now, but, you left too late,
With the news to deliver, and yet,
Time and time and again and again-
You miss your friends but you just want him
To return to you- you’d give anything for that.

And, the missing and the kissing
Couples that you hate, late night on a slow train.
And, the leaning and the reeling
Of your love as it takes all the time in the world
To mend, and turn away-- not today.

All and all and well and well-
You chose it fine, but, it fell, it fell, it fell.
Step and change and heel to toe-
You’re forcing things that never go.
Six and one and five to three-
I’m too good for you.
Is that what’s left of me?-
A bitter wash of false memories.

And, the missing and the kissing
Couples that you hate, late night on a slow train.
And, the leaning and the reeling
Of your love as it takes all the time in the world
To mend, and turn away-- not today.

And, all at once it’s gone, and all at once it’s lost,
And, all together we knew the end was near.
