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 »

Running through fields of flowers and smoke
Leaving behind all that we've built
The garden now in ashes and the roof is caving in
A broken hour glass
Blood running thin

(For your life) come to my side
(For your life) take me from here

(For your life) open up your heart
Let me hear your voice
Let me hear you sing

I wasn't on my way down to the marketplace
Wasn't at the schoolyard
Where our children play
I wasn't in our home standing in the living room
Or writing you a note that
I'll be back soon

(For your life) come to my side
(For your life) take me from here

(For your life) open up your heart
Let me hear your voice
Let me hear you sing

Oh, let me hear you sing
Let me hear you sing

I don't recognize myself that much anymore
Memories in my pockets and coins on the floor

All I smell is smoke and all I ever see
Is the look in your eyes
The look in you eyes

(For your life) you'll come to my side
(For your life) take me from here

(For your life) open up your heart
(For your life) let me hear your voice

(For your life) open up your heart
(For your life) let me hear your voice

Oh, let me hear you sing
Let me hear you sing
