  • And so my love
    From my window I can see
    A beautiful vision
    And when the music plays
    Your body rises like a bird of grace

    [Chorus]
    Mi morena
    I saw you dancing in the rain
    Holy water
    Shining like a silver flame
    Come like a ghost
    I will watch you dance alone
    Mi morena
    You're the light within my soul

    And so my love
    The way you're moving in your dress
    To a nylon guitar
    On wings of silk and lace
    You lift upon the notes and slip away

    [Chorus]

    Take this cross of feathers and bone
    Take this heart I've carved into stone
    In your name

    Where the setting sun surrenders to the moon
    Mi querida
    I will wait for you

    [Chorus]

    Mi morena
    Hold your hands out to the light
    Be my lover
    I will fall into your eyes
    Sweet fire of love
    For you I'd steal the stars
    'Cause I adore you
    O my morena Writer/s: MARTIN PAGE
