I need a friend to lend. 
 I´ll do it with any friend. 
 you´re weak enough to realize. 
 I´ll do cause you have a price. You'll take advantage while 
I hang myself to dry
 So I can't see you every night... for free. I'm digging in my mind, 
 I do hope you have the time I´ll shout loud in front of you If you love me and hate me too. You'll take advantage while 
I hang myself to dry So I can't see you every night...
for free.

Is this the letter that you wrote The day you went so far away from home? Are these three kisses on the note The ones i'll never have again? No more... What did you leave so quickly for? Why didn't you write your adress or your phone Why don't you stay? Why can't I go? How could i be so high and now so low? And now i'm heading down the road I'm leaving all the promisses you broke This age is coming to an end as fast as every day And the only thing i can think, as i always did, Is that you'll always feel free... Is this the song that i composed The night we had a milion beers or more? Are these the cowboy boots you wore The rising day that cought us making love? And now i'm heading down the road I'm leaving all the promisses you broke This age is coming to an end as fast as every day And the only thing i can think, as i always did, Is that you'll always feel free...

I'm trying harder than ever Even when we were in love I'm longing to get into your life, babe Don't wanna wait anymore 'Cause everything was exciting When i belonged to you Yeah, everything gets exciting When i belong to you And when the moonlight shining reflects in your eyes I feel something that I can't explain If there was just a little hope that you could feel the same... Love can be frightening when you fall... Oh... I'm trying harder than ever Even when we were in love I'm longing to get into your life, babe Don't wanna waste anymore 'Cause everything was exciting When i belonged to you Yeah, everything gets exciting When i belong to you And when the moonlight shining reflects in your eyes I feel something that I can't explain If there was just a little hope that you could feel the same... Love can be frightening when you fall... Oh... And I remember when you sang these old songs for me It was a hot hot stary night, we were alone in the street And I know that I should remain somewhere in your memories Well, it's hard when something so close is still so far to reach... And when the moonlight shining reflects in your eyes I feel something that I can't explain If there was just a little hope that you could feel the same... Love can be frightening when you fall... Oh...

Well I’ve been to many places ‘round this country And I guess that I will see so many more But there’s a town in this road, passed the mile eightyfive To which I swore I was never coming back There I met a pretty girl that drove me crazy She was as sweet as any man could dream She had a perfect smile, a crown made up with daisies And a secret that she used to keep for me And she promissed everything but she betrayed me And all this bitterness still remains As I guess she wouldn’t even dare to tell me I took her crown away... Her crown away As the time went by the daisies never withered And I wonder if she ever cried for me And when the wind blows strong I think I hear her whispers Telling me that now she’s feeling incomplete And she promissed everything but she betrayed me And all this bitterness still remains As I guess she wouldn’t even dare to tell me I took her crown away... Her crown away

When I think ‘bout the things that I have done And the time that I spent at home alone There’s some thoughts and regrets that never change And the fears and the tears just go away And those things made me see Life’s too short let’s just live Life puts crossroads and stones along your way And you keep loosing friends every day You can feel winds of change blowing your mind Destiny is now reflecting in your eyes And those things made me see Life’s too short let’s just live

Well I'm just a lonesome cowboy A total stranger in this town I had to take an empty boxcar And I had to leave my home Beyond the point of no return I took this old railroad I had to leave my mama I had to leave my horse I left looking for something sometimes iIthink I can't find Sometimes I can't avoid feeling I'm out of date, out of time I walk down abandoned roads I ain't got a dime in my pockets There ain't no hopes or dreams around Only my shadow to bother "Hey, lonesome cowboy, where do you think you go? Why don't you give us your hat Why don't you sing us a song?" I heard these joky voices And I didn't believe what I saw There were two pretty twin pricesses Trying to shoot me down I run inside the cantina Trying to keep myself safe and sound But that ain't a good idea With these two goddesses around And I knew in that right moment that I was getting into trouble When they paid some double whiskies and I started to see double And I ain't gonna say a single word 'bout how the story ends After drinking and dancing like crazy almost to loose our conciousness

Hey nena, Don't wanna hear what I have to say? Hey nena, Don't wanna see whay I have to show? I can't stay away from everything Is that the life we have to live? I can't get along with other ones So I hope you know what it means Hey nena, I'm gonna take you where I wanna go Hey nena, I'm gonna try to have it all with you I can't stay away from everything Is that the life we have to live? I can't get along with other ones So I hope you know what it means

That’s a train you know I just can’t jump in Sometimes it gets so hard to see I’m standing here beating on my mandoline With all these promises you left for me I’ll be there for you even if I’m half sick I’d run away if you just hated me I’d be there for you if you could understand me But now I have another place to be... I’ve got the fever down in my pockets My stupidity always follows me I take it to your house but can’t unlock it You forgot to leave me with the key I’ll be there for you even if I’m half sick I’d run away if you just hated me I’d be there for you if you could understand me But now I have another place to be... But now I have another place to be...

How many times have you heard someone say, "If I had HIS money, I would do things my way." But little they know, that it's so hard to find one rich man in ten, with a satisfied mind. When my life is over and my time has run out, my friends and my loved ones, I will leave there's no doubt Money can't buy back all your youth when you're old, a friend when you're lonely, or peace to your soul. The wealthiest person, is a pauper at times compared to the man with a satisfied mind. But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time, I will leave this old world with a satisfied... With a satisfied mind

Oh little girl from Virginia You’re begging me to stay But now this life seems too far away And i look for luck and money Day by day Oh little girl from Virginia You’re asking me to live my way But there’s no light that can guide my steps And i look for some money day by day Oh little girl from Virginia You don’t even know my name I don’t think i’m ever gonna settle down And i ain’t got no money for today And all the time we spent together... And all the words i didn’t say And now i can’ believe you’re cheating me this way While you spend all my money day by day Oh little girl from Virginia You’re begging me to stay But now this life seems too far away And i look for luck and money Day by day And all the time we spent together... And all the words i didn’t say And now i can’ believe you’re cheating me this way While you spend all my money day by day you spend all my money day by day you spend all my money... day by day

La noche ya cayó, yo no caigo dormido Bebido me pilla el amanecer Las horas se amontonan las horas se persiguen Y el lunes comienza a aparecer Qué tendrá ese bar de los hombres perdidos Que entran y no pueden salir? Cuántos desengaños, cuantos sueños malditos Caen en el olvido... de ese pozo sin fin A veces hay jóvenes, a veces no hay doncellas No encuentro la salida de este bar A veces la salida parece muy estrecha Cuidado no se vayan a enfadar Hay gente veterana, que alguno dé guerra Algún coyote siempre habrá Monos malabares al salir por la puerta Pinturas rupestres del lugar Qué tendrá ese bar de los hombres perdidos Que entran y no pueden salir? Cuántos desengaños, cuantos sueños malditos Caen en el olvido de ese pozo sin fin... De ese pozo sin fin...
