Nica Libres At Dusk

Ben Howard


Door is locked
My gums are bleeding
Outside she reads
Outside she’s reading the evacuation procedure out loud
Clothes are off
My health receding
Somewhere she dreams
Somewhere she’s dreaming
The Caribbean
Nica libres at dusk

While the faithful disposed of a generation
And all of the mountains whispers knowingly
I order a Colada and sit to count my dollars
And watch eagle soar in circles
Perpetually

Door is locked
My gums are bleeding
Outside she reads
Outside she’s reading the evacuation procedure out loud
Clothes are off
My health receding
Somewhere she dreams
Somewhere she’s dreaming
The Caribbean
Nica libres at dusk

While the faithful disposed of a generation
And all of the mountains rumble knowingly
I order a colada and sit to count my dollars
And watch eagle soar in circles
Perpetually

Forever, forever such a beautiful thing

Now I am older
I don't look over my shoulder
I know what is there in front of me
Ten marlboro cigarettes the rolled butts into the bottles
Today I will stare at the sea
'Till my eyes have had enough

Enough, is that enough?
