The Tears of Llorona

The Tears of Llorona

There’s a path leads to the water’s edge
Green fields beyond but there is no bridge
If you listen carefully
You can still hear her weep
The tears of Llorona flowing down her cheek

Water as dark as her lover’s eyes
And deep like the pain she tries to hide
He pledged his love to her and
Vanished without a trace
The tears of Llorona glisten on her face

Chorus:
She walks into the water
To wash away the pain
Lifts her head to the sky
And screams out his name

They say he returned to the Old World
She’s always been such a trusting girl
The river calls out her name
And begs to set her free
The tears of Llorona, flowing out to sea

Bridge:
She’s walked every inch of that river bank
Just another stone that’s been cast away
But some stones are heavy
And some stones they sink
She’s gonna find those stones someday

Chorus:
She walks into the water
To wash away the pain
Lifts her head to the sky
And screams out his name
