This is a single from my upcoming album solo album 'Mexico' which I worte during a 5 week journey across Mexico in January/February of 2020.
The album will be released in November this year.


Where did you go
I loved you so

I hope you're well my friend
heard she's pregnant again

Sitting in a park reciting books
and everywhere we looked
life seemed within our reach
and we owned the streets

I would like to know why
did you not come to my show

Going to a park after dark
I miss our inteellectual talks
life seemed within our reach
and we owned the streets

Going to the park after dark
I miss our intellectual talks
life seemed within our reach
and the world was a playground just for us

The dreams that we shared in the past
hope they will come back
