mexico lyrics – carbon leaf

perhaps i’ve never tried that hard to see
the palm trees swinging lazy in the breeze
perhaps i looked away too many times
just ignoring all the signs

riding high on a temporary vibe
life and love are messy most of the time

practical minds breeding practical lives
leave it all behind
the ocean breeze, the palm trees
and the sunshine
excuses that a pair of eyes can’t hide
perhaps this paradise is my decline

riding high on a temporary vibe
life and love are messy most of the time
if we were sober we would know
that this is real beyond a feeling
and i’d never let you go
if we were sober we would know
that this is real beyond a feel
i should have never let you go
down in mexico

we could be drinking cheap tequila
en la playa escondida
and it sure is good to see the sea again

we both know what this could be
or, pretend that it’s not happening
float forever, take the trip with me
live forever in a postcard
where it lives and breathes
in blue and green
in the roaring of a gentle breeze

we could be drinking cheap tequila
en la playa escondida
and it sure is good to see the sea again
we should be drinking margaritas
in a bar in buena vista
and it sure is good to see you once again
