about

Draw your curtains for an epic, psychedelic latin twisted rock opera journey into 'MIDNIGHT RADIO' Drawing influences from south/central America and Spain. A bombastic, gutsy album - a nod towards the continental '70's. Driving in a fast car along the Latin coast.

MUSTANG BY RENU

Verse 1
On a mustang
In her dance shoes she would pose
On accordian, I'd compose
Pennies and love kept us afloat
She was a girl and I was a man

Verse 2
Senorita could never rest
In search of what no-one knew
Looking for love
Was her move
Looking for love (drag out)
lips
tightly sealed
hips
side to side
no quips
From my eyes

Chorus
oooooo
oooooo

Verse 3
This her story from the past
This the age of suicide
Her teenage lover
He had died
Strong in bed as she was too
He shot himself with a gun
She gazed at him
He was done
Blood and Brains on the floor
Bullets there were 2

Verse 4
She left El Paso in the night
Drugs and drink broke her man
Looking for love
Looking for love
In her case she packed a gun
In her case was the bible
In her case she packed cigars
In her case all was done.

Chorus
oooooo she was my senorita
oooooo I was her man

Instrumental with electric guitar solo
Verse * 5 + Chorus *1 + 6/8 + 1 rest

Verse 6
In a bar we had met
She told me of her story
I stared back, hit by love
She was it
I took her by the hand
And led her to my mustang
I couldn't promise her shiny diamonds
But I could promise her all my love


Chorus
ooooo she was my woman
ooooo I was her man

Music Breakdown
Rock breakdown

Verse 7
oohs and aaahs


Chorus
ooooo she was my senorita
ooooo I was her man

Track Name: We Rise
We Rise

I live for nothing
but you and your smile
Keep me from going crazy

We rise, we rise
And we fall
Down till we fly again

I want for one thing
Yours arms
Take me to a place of safety

You are my only
True world
For whom I breath again

We rise, we rise
And we fall
Down till we fly again
