Lyrics

The Spanish Man
Copyright 2022 Walter Salas-Humara
Published 2022 Lagartija Music BMI

E F#m
The hourglass and the sand
A B
Like bad trouble coming
His mind never could understand
Why his heart was always seeking

Pre-Chorus:
A B
What is the space
between the lines and forms
What is it’s color
When it’s not yet born

Chorus:
E A
Growing old and staying young
E B
The Spanish Man and his German Son
The more you speak/think the less you get done
The Spanish Man and his German Son

His son had no new memories
Only old ones distant and weak
He spoke in broken sentences
In a language his father did not speak

There was anger and indifference
But they never let it show
They smiled and laughed at the lack of confidence and
the love they would never know

Repeat Pre-Chorus and Chorus

Bridge:
A B
They concentrated on the precious moments
Occupied the same physical space
How similar their instincts were
Of the heart that they were made

Whisper to your sleeping child
Tell him why you had say goodbye
He’s gonna grow up fast and wild
And never know why you left his side

What is the space
between the lines and forms
What is it’s color
When it’s not yet born

Repeat Pre-Chorus and Chorus
