lyrics

With my tin skeleton and a brand new ghost
I set sail for you on the Mexican coast
I had demons all wrapped up in my hair
I had angels armed to the teeth around me everywhere
“Anhelo, Anhelo
My lover my soul
I will find out where they buried you
And I will take you home”

I was wind, I was dust, I was fire
No, they could not hold me back, but Lord they tried
The birds rose and sang your name to the night
I went to the mountain, I raised up my hands and I cried:
“Anhelo, Anhelo
My lover my soul
I will find out where they buried you
And I will take you home”

When I left the town lit the sky
You have never seen flames rise so high
No, you have never seen flames rise so high....
