lyrics

You keep telling me you’re gonna win.
Where I stand, you got nothing to lose.
Spend your nights with a bottle of gin.
Drown yourself in a river of blues.

I’m gonna die, you’re gonna die.
Don’t think about it, don’t ask why,
But I will always hold you in the light.
No good to fight it, no good to cry.
Days slip away, and years drift by,
But I will always hold you in the light.

Stake your claim and stand your ground
Though it kills you day by day.
No one wants to steal your crown
‘Cause we all see how much it weighs.

I’m gonna die, you’re gonna die.
Don’t think about it, don’t ask why,
But I will always hold you in the light.
No good to fight it, no good to cry,
Days slip away, and years drift by,
But I will always hold you in the light.

I’ll keep scratching at your door
Though you wish I’d let you be,
Clinging to your great reward,
Bitter fruit from a poison tree.

I’m gonna die, you’re gonna die.
Don’t think about it, don’t ask why,
But I will always hold you in the light.
No good to fight it, no good to cry.
Days slip away, and years drift by,
But I will always hold you in the light.

I’m gonna die, you’re gonna die.
Don’t think about it, don’t ask why,
But I will always hold you in the light.
No good to fight it, no good to cry.
You’ll go your way, I’ll go mine,
But I will always hold you in the light.

about

Zapatero Havertown, Pennsylvania

“Sometimes verging on the experimental, else playing in the middle of the dance-floor… Zapatero is a musician who creates music simply for the joy of making music, to get away from the mundanities of life, which gives his songs their honesty and vitality, making them such a delight to hear.” – Tim Whale, Emerging Indie Bands ... more
