The News About William
Calexico Lyrics


4 in the morning the sidewalk's asleep
Dogs on the porch,
Spiders on the leaf
Shipwrecked by night sailing through days

Nobody noticed the slipping away
Connecting the dots with thorns in his side
Boarded up the Windows with pain and with pride
The music box broken that once was his soul

Its sad little song spinning out of control
Then came the storm that washed the roads out
Closed both his eyes and pointed straight south
Second line drums marched into the sea

While the clouds overhead cried "mutiny"
They parted for Cathy and her bitter news
As her words fail and the sky grew dim
Recalled how close to that exit l've been

Ours not to reply, ours not to reason why
The news about William
The lifeline retreats
Desire for release
The thorns in his side

This song brought me comfort while mourning my Grandpa's passing a day ago. He was a Mexican cowboy who played Spanish guitar and sang beautifully. This style of music always makes me think of him.
