let me be


let me be
i want to live truly
the truth of my loving

with a silk rose at my throat
a black shawl around my hips
and a hand on my heart’s wound
dear love, i don’t complain
it’s just another scar
but let me be
i want to die with a song on my lips

a tango ballad
or a fado’s lament
or better yet
bring me to the latin quarter

watch me dance the sadness away
under the red-red glow of the night light
let me throw everything in the fire
burn everything
my memories
even my life
