Málaga 03:51
When I step off the plane The sweetness in the salty breeze fills my happy lungs It always feels the same When I get back from overseas I’m feverish as the sun Málaga Mi vida waits for me Gonna take in every pleasure, gonna put away the map I love the way it feels To roll with every rhythm, sink my feet back in the sand Málaga Malaga you’ve got a lot of stories to tell Malaga you’ve got a lot of style with the spell That you cast of those like me who gamble everything they’ve got To chase the dream that you promise with your charms Málaga Mi vida’s here for me I’ll be following the treasure till I chase another map I love the way I feel When I’m rolling in the pleasure as my feet play in the sand

Soar 03:36
I know you've got a lot to say But you know I'd really rather play When you're willing to risk it all You'll find your heart will call you To a endless holiday And you'll say: Everything that's happening is really happening to me Everything I'm dreaming of is right in front of me to see I beam as I glide into a takeoff from the shore In great anticipation of the soar I know you've had some finer days But you know I’ve got a lighter way Aim your heart into the wind And you'll find you'll begin to Take a flight that won't betray Elation… of the soar

Llórame 04:47
Llórame, abrázame y llórame You cry and lead my heart astray You're stronger when you fall You fall to my fragility A quiet dose of ecstasy That fades before the dawn And then it's gone Llórame, abrázame y llórame You cry but you can never stay You take me to my end We're searching for the same embrace Returning to a sacred place Where love is love alone Beyond the stone Llórame, go softly as you race toward the burning sun Llórame, and bring you light you seek

Bulería #1 04:09
Early in the morning when I find myself alone I remember what you told me In your brazen baritone And I can't believe you said that And I hope it isn't true So I wrote this bulería for you I've lied in the light of lives mistaken And I've tried... But my little heart has since awakened And it follows the sound of the wind in my hair as I fly You will never know what I know When you say I don't know how to stay You will never see what I see Well I see the games that you all play If you stick around, si te quedas verás que sí, que sí You'll see hombre hombre, que sí, hombre

Jasmine Tree 03:45
Fragrant the jasmine tree Sweetly seducing me You saw how I cried through the rain And you said there you go again There you go again, you haven't learned a thing Eyes from opposing sides Go blind when their hearts collide Lost in the lushness of longing Longing for a love Longing for a love that hasn't learned a thing I know it's all wrong and I try to hold on But I get swept away by the tide It carries me down to the depths With creatures that vie for my hide Díos mío, you say, corazón! La vida no vale sin ti How sweet is the jasmine tree There you go again…. Ya está otra vez con lo mismo... You haven't learned a thing

The riverbed is full of dust That longs to be swished full again Where venture reigned there now remain A million dreams that should've been I wonder through red jagged rocks And soil drenched with memories I ask myself what made me sail From shores of opportunity To find beauty in decay Releasing my ambition I succumb to my own mystery And leave the peaks and valleys To the bleak inhospitality I find beauty in decay Beauty in the ruins A quiet moment brings a smile As my imagination sees me Dancing on a marble floor In days of golden luxury I wonder through red jagged rocks And soil drenched with memories And I realize what made me sail From shores of opportunity I find beauty in decay Beauty in the ruins

I once said I'd stay For the relentless crash Of the Mediterranean Sea And the daily talk of winds, el levante I once said I'd stay To see a flock and shepherd With his crook in hand Roaming the rhythms of the land Resigning to my easy days I then got caught by an unyielding gaze He was brown of eye, and red of blood And he said, someday you'll stay for love. I once said I'd stay For the cracked green olives And the fresh goat cheese The scent of freedom in the breeze I once said I'd stay For grapes of muscatel And its sweet strong wine That soaks the barrels of my mind And I never thought I'd say goodbye But didn't think the reason why Would be this brown of eye and red of blood Who said someday I'd stay for love Hearts of old tradition can be gusty in their ways Will he bring storms or gentle days? And I never thought I'd say goodbye But I didn’t think the reason why Would be this brown of eye and red of blood Who said someday ‘you’ll stay….’, I’d stay for love

My hammer's met a thousand nails I pummel, forge and crack I like it that way I elevate and raise the beast I drown in my own sweat No need to explain I'm travel weary But I somehow find the grit I need To make another temporary home The cynics see me as light and breezy They think I win the crowd With ruffles on my gown They think I'm rich and they grab and snatch But they're blind to see the tear stains On my hand-me-downs I could be shattered But I don't believe a jagged heart Could find another temporary home With every new beginning I have made alone I get a thrill from all the pristine possibilities In the vicinity of my new temporary home I'm travel weary But I somehow find the grit I need To make another temporary home

I bought myself a good address Furnished with the chicest best And neighbouring my swanky digs I played a lot of cushy gigs, I had it all But then I gave it all away one day one breezy day When ancient wind swept up my hair And lured me into this affair With my wild imagination Now I'm Artemis in leaves of green My bow and arrow shot is mean I'm Venus in a silken gown My luxuries can take them down Down to their knees Where I do absolutely anything I please Since an ancient wind swept up my hair And lured me into this affair With my wild imagination My mother said the first few words that I could ever speak were I’m a little crazy ‘She's crazy… ‘ they all said ‘that girl's crazy, she’s just nuts!’ She thinks she's Lawrence of Arabia She loves her egomania She's Rambo in the the thick of tress She's Tarzan swinging through the breeze As he cries ahahahaha! But in my clever mind I nail it every time Since an ancient wind swept up my hair And lured me into this affair With my wild imagination

The market is alive, a feast of colours for the eye I've got almonds, figs, and oranges from Valencia I'm gathering a vision of the meal I'll make alone With my army of artichokes from Almería I run back as I decide to buy the fresh catch of the day And I crash into a rugged smile, and I think I hear him say: ‘I’ve got wine from the sunniest vine Let's dine on my yellow veranda Come along and we'll laugh until dawn Let's dine on my yellow veranda’ I drop my bag of artichokes, they scramble on the floor And they roll between his shoes of sturdy leather I gather up my might but he can see that I am shy And says, ‘worry not we'll pick them up together.’ I look up and I can see he's just as curious as I So I break into a smile and then imagine his reply ‘I’ve got wine from the sunniest vine Let's dine on my yellow veranda Come along and we'll laugh until dawn Let's dine on my yellow veranda’ Should I come to my senses Or should I keep dreaming that he's gonna say 'My table's set for two'

about

All the songs on Sangria Jam were written in Málaga, Spain, and are reflections of my life here. The title, Sangria Jam alludes to the way many influences of blood and sound have come together on this disc.
