O Valencia! - The Decemberists

You belong to the gang,
And you say you can't break away,
But I'm here with my hands on my heart,

And our families can't agree,
I'm your brother's sworn enemy,
But I'll shout out my love to the stars,

So wait for the stone on your window,
Your window
Wait by the car and we'll go,
We'll go,

When first we laid eyes,
I swore to no compromise,
'Til I felt my caress on your skin,

Well how soon we were betrayed,
Your sister gave us away,
And your father came all unhinged,

So wait for the stone on your window,
Your window,
Wait by the car,
And we'll go,
We'll go,

But O Valencia!
With your blood still warm on the groud,
Valencia,
And I swear to the stars,
I'll burn this whole city down,

All I heard was a shout,
Of your brother calling me out,
And you ran like a fool to my side,

Well the shot it hit hard,
And your frame went limp in my arms,
And an oath of love was your dying cry,

So wait for the stone on your window,
Your window,
Wait by the car and we'll go,
We'll go,

But O Valencia!,
With your blood still warm on the ground,
Valencia,
And I'll burn this whole city down

Valencia!,
With your blood getting cold on the ground,

Valencia!,
And I swear to the stars,
I'll burn this whole city down.
