The Bitter Suite (Pajaro/Evil Eye/Tennessee Train)

Calexico
[Pájaro]

Hay sueños lo suficientemente salvajes para pasar el tiempo
Ese pájaro muerto quiere alas pero no lo recuerda
Pero no lo recuerda
No lo recuerda
No lo recuerda

[Evil Eye]

[Instrumental]

[Tennessee Train]

My first mom laughed like she never had
She dug a heel deep into the mountainside
You know Grace, who gave me back a gold ring
She always knew what was hers and what was mine
I was only stumbling through her garden gate

Trains leave Tennessee, moaning as they roll away

My last dad was clean as he could ever be
Leaning through a window, rubbing at his evil eye
Last I heard, he saw it all for what it was
There are dreams wild enough to pass the time
Then again, there's all we could trade for a hiding place

Trains leave Tennessee, moaning as they roll away

This dead bird wants the wings he can't recall
A weak preacher standing with a song to sing
Who knows grace staring at a kitchen fire
That's the way I told her I would her anything
Anything wasn't enough to make her stay

Trains leave Tennessee, moaning as they roll away

Roll away
Roll away

(Life is bittersweet)
