Red Store Bums Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Si tú te vas
Yo no sé lo que hiciera está noche
Es tan sólo sin ti
Porque tu ya te vas y yo solo fui
Un perro para ti
Asi me acusaste de vivir
Y ahora estas por venir
Pero no quiero que vuelvas pa'no sufrir
Porque estoy muy feliz
¡Juntos bailando el Ska!
Si tú te vas
Yo no sé lo que hiciera está noche
Es tan sólo sin ti
Porque tu ya te vas y yo solo fui
Un perro para ti
Asi me acusaste de vivir
Y ahora estas por venir




Pero no quiero que vuelvas pa'no sufrir
Porque estoy muy feliz

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Red Store Bums's song Tumbleweed depict the feelings of heartbreak and uncertainty of a person whose lover has left them. The song's character is caught off guard, and they don't know what to do or how to react to the sudden departure of their lover. The lyrics reflect a deep sense of sadness and loneliness as the character feels like they were only a dog to their lover. The use of the phrase "Asi me acusaste de vivir" implies that the lover accused the main character of living a dog's life with little or no purpose.


However, the main character has found happiness since their lover left, as reflected in the final lyric "Porque estoy muy feliz." The use of the exclamation in that line suggests that the character has found joy in a new form, most likely dance. This is expressed through the phrase "¡Juntos bailando el Ska!" which translates to "dancing the Ska together." The final line also suggests that the main character may not want their lover to come back to avoid suffering again.


Overall, Tumbleweed is a song that portrays the complexity of the feeling of heartbreak, loss, and newfound happiness that follows. The melancholic rhythm and lyrics of the song invite the listener to empathize with the character and connect with the emotions expressed.
