marguerita

by Rebecca Loebe

 

When I leave I’ll leave the sun hanging straight up in the sky

The apples in their baskets; let ‘em rot and turn to wine

The cold averted glances, the fear in my bones

When I leave I’ll leave the long arm and the trips behind the shed

The bundles in my mattress, the shaking of their heads

I’ll fare the well to no one; I will disappear

 

Marguerita, you’re the reason I’ve been up at dawn

Marguerita, you’re the reason I’ve been holding on

Marguerita, you’re the queen of every beggar’s son

Marguerita

 

When I leave I’ll leave completely with a suitcase full of cash

I’ll uncross every border, I’ll untake every breath

Til we’re standing in a chapel making promises

The girls’ll get new dresses, the boys get baseball caps

I will answer every question, we’ll dance til every last

Drop of celebration has been rung out of our shoes

We’ll make love ‘til the morning, make love ‘til we can’t move

 

Marguerita, you’re the reason I’ve been up at dawn

Marguerita, you’re the reason I’ve been holding on

Marguerita, you’re the queen of every beggar’s son

Marguerita, Marguerita

 

It was early in November on a cloudless sunny day

The sky grew thick with thunder, the birds all flew away

They shackled us like killers; we walked in single file

Marguerita, they’ve been talking oh but I ain’t heard a word

I’ve been dreaming you can see me in my cell of steel and dirt

Hidden from the sun hanging straight up in the sky

I’ve been plucked like an apple left to rot and turn to wine

 

Marguerita, you’re the reason I’ve been up at dawn

Marguerita, you’re the reason I’ve been holding on

Marguerita, you’re the queen of every beggar’s son

Marguerita, Marguerita, Marguerita, Marguerita
