Calexico

Calexico is a Tucson, Arizona-based Americana / Tex-Mex / indie rock band. The band's two main members, Joey Burns and John Convertino, first played together in Los Angeles as part of the group Giant Sand. They have recorded a number of albums on Quarterstick Records, while their 2005 EP In the Reins recorded with Iron & Wine has reached the Billboard 200 album charts. Their musical style is influenced by traditional Latin sounds of mariachi / conjunto / cumbia / Tejano music and also the Southwestern United States country music as well as '50s-'60s jazz and '90s-'00s post-rock, and they have been described by some as "desert noir" or indie rock. The band is named for the border town of Calexico, California. more »

Who's there?
Who keeps coming on, on the line?
Who's there and hiding behind the lights?
That ain't no shadow
I know who you are

Eyes wide awake, so much is at stake
I'm frozen in glace, need to see your face
Uncoil and reveal, break out of the trance
Or is there something I wanna chase?

The room is on fire and we're paralyzed
I whisper your name to the heart of the frame
This happens again and we just pretend
Not to notice that we're haunted

Eyes wide awake, so much is at stake
I'm frozen in place, need to see your face
The lost and the damned, we'll find our way
But something out there keeps blowing back, keeps blowing

Eyes wide awake so much is at stake
I'm frozen in place, need to see your face
The lost and the damned, we'll find our way
But something out there keeps blowing back
Keeps blowing back, blowing back like the wind
Keeps blowing back, blowing back
Keeps blowing back, blowing back
Eyes wide awake
