Lyrics

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
