Recorded at Josetxo's flat by Juan Mari Huarte in 2013

lyrics

Elope

Girl I love you well,
Darling canʼt you tell
That I am not some stranger
Under lustʼs makeshift spell

My heart it lies with thee
Without pretense or mystery
I come here, nothing hidden,
Wonʼt you run away with me?

Itʼs a long way
Whence I came
Itʼs a long road
Back to my home

I am a simple boy
Not a penny to my name
Would you marry him for money
Or be bold and run away?

Where do you see yourself
Twenty years from now
Living the life you wanted
Or for wishes passed on down?

Itʼs a long way
Whence I came
Itʼs a long road
Back to my home
