lyrics

Dime mi amor
Do you want to go swimming?
We’ll swim in the waters and sink till we drown
Dicieron Dicieron
But we wouldn’t listen
Dicieron Narciso was coming to town

And there’s no escape
From the waves as they break
Down your walls
They told us all that
Help would be on the way
We swallowed the lie
They left us to die
And the flood came to take you away

A thousand-year storm
That’s what they called em
But a thousand-year storm
Came every year
Narciso, Narciso, El Huracán de nuestro Valle
Won't you blow me away I don’t want to be here

It’s dark and it’s cold, my body is weightless
The water feels like floating in space
Te extraño mi amor my heartbeat is slowing
Narciso came and took me away
