“Tin Foil Stars” EP

  • [KING OF DIAMONDS]

“I could be the king of diamonds
and you could be my queen of hearts,
and maybe we’ll get dealt together
by the same deck of cards.
and maybe we’ll get held together
and form a winning hand,
or maybe we lose the draw
and never see each other again.

there’s only so much time
and there’s only so much left
for you and I

But if we could catch an ace
Well, we could make jack pay,
and if we could find a 10 somewhere
then darlin we’d be straight.
but if we get the 3 of clubs
or the 6 of spades,
well, that’ll be the end of us
and well get thrown away

there’s only so much time.
and there’s only so much left
for you and I

And there’s nothing we can do
but leave it up to chance
and maybe well get lucky
and it’ll work out like we planned.
cause theres 50 cards between us
but man, they feel like 50 states
and I know you’re out there somewhere
it just feels so far away

there’s only so much time.
and there’s only so much left
for you and I

I could be the king of diamonds
and I could be the queen of hearts
and maybe well get dealt together
by the same deck of cards”

  • [EL SANTUARIO DE CHIMAYO]

“Well it’s been said that the soil can heal you

that all you have to do is hold it near you

and people come from miles away

to wait in line, around the block, for a chance to pray

pictures pinned to the banner of the virgin

they’re here for help, but nothing’s certain

crucifix on the crutches against the wall

left there in hope in New Mexico

They’ve come for miles

through the sand

along the side of the road

just to place their hands in the dirt

at Santuario De Chimayo

They scoop the earth in little bags to take it with them

in hopes of bringing healing back

for their parents and children

and how great would it be to have God’s grace in a pouch?

hung up on the wall

inside of your house

Some come seeking blessings

others fulfill a vow

past the shrine on the hilltop

outside of town

in front of the cross

and under the arch

with all the other pilgrims out in the yards

they’ve come for miles

through the sand

along the side of the road

just to place their hands in the dirt

at Santuario De Chimayo

and it’s been said that the soil can heal you

that all you have to do is hold it near you”
