lyrics

Our story was a funny one,
We never asked for more than we had.
Our story was a funny one,
We never asked for more.

We slept in the garden,
‘Cause we didn’t have a bed.
In those days I had long hair
And you had a shaved head.

On the day when you moved into my house
You opened up your bags and all the chaos came out.
We held each others’ hands, I knew I loved you then,
We watched the seasons change from green to grey again.

We stitched our lives together
With spools of shining thread.
We agreed that our lives would exist
Until one of us was dead.

The fireflies were warning signs
When they swarmed on you that night.
I should have thought it strange
When you dissolved into a pillar of light.
But it looked so natural,
Then oh my god you were gone,
Oh my god you were gone.

The wildflowers which ate themselves,
They demanded that I touch the lion’s mouth.

I cried for you at dusk,
And again at dawn.
The sound of the air in my lungs,
The sound of the holes in my heart,
I opened my eyes,
And oh my god you were gone,
Oh my god you were gone.

My jaw is clenched, my shoes are ruined,
Futile attempts to find you.

Our story was a funny one,
We never asked for more than we had.
Our story was a funny one,
We never asked for more.

about

Yo Soy Indigo Prague, Czech Republic

A mish-mosh of six wonderfully weird, international musicians with blazing solos, soulful melodies, deep lyrical expression, and an ample serving of humor. The band calls itself "freak-folk-jazz", which just scratches the surface of the free-flowing genres they explore. ... more
