Nick Mulvey – Cucurucu

Ξένη μουσική

Softly in the evening dusk, a women is singing to me
She takes me back, down the vista of my years until I see
I see a child underneath, the piano in the boom of the tingling strings
Pressing the poised feet of his mother who smiles at him as she sings

Cucurucu, cucurucu

Softly now in the evening dusk a women is singing to me
And she takes me back down the vista of my years until I see
A boy, a child underneath the piano in the boom of the tingling strings
Pressing the poised feet of his mother who smiles at him as she sings
Yearning to belong yearning to belong
My heart beats with a ceaseless longing of a yearning to belong
In spite of myself and all of these nursery songs
My heart beats with a ceaseless longing of a yearning to belong

Till the melodies of childish days, are upon, upon me
And they take me back, back down the river
They keep leading me on, they lead me till I see
That all of my manhood is cast
Down in the flood of remembrance, and I weep like a child for the past

Sing cucurucu, cucurucu
Singing cucurucu, cucurucu

I see a child underneath the piano in the boom of the tingling strings
Pressing the poised feet of his mother who smiles at him as she sings
Listen to me son, I tell you why your father’s strong
Cause he can still say every single day he’s yearning to belong
Yearning to belong, yearning to belong
My heart beats with a ceaseless longing of a yearning to belong
In spite of myself and all of these nursery songs
My heart beats with a ceaseless weeps with a peace-less burning to belong

Singing cucurucu, cucurucu
Singing cucurucu, singing cucurucu
Cucurucu, cucurucu
