Spanish Doll

This place feels so unfamiliar
And yet I know it well
I think I used to belong here
But the only way I can tell
Is that I miss you still
And I cannot find you here
You left me tattered and torn
Just like that sweet Spanish doll

(Sweet Spanish sweet Spanish... doll)

I went down to the alley way
(Sierra la Bonita )
And found that you were gone
(si nunca te fueras [if you never left])
You left no word no message
I still don't know exactly what went wrong
(lagrima [tear])
But now no matter where I go
I always seem to return
(buscame [look for me])
To where you left me tattered and torn
(estoy rompida mi muñeca [I am broken my sweet doll])
Just like that sweet Spanish doll

(Sweet spanish sweet spanish...doll)

A memory gilded in red and gold
(de oro [of gold])
Beauty guarded and never sold
(cuidame [protect me])
I keep it with me wherever I go
And I love you still
(recuerdame [remember me])
No matter how a story will unfold
You know I always will
(esta conmigo [it is with me])
Have part of you here
In this souvenir - Spanish doll

A stranger in this world without you
Is all that I can ever be
All I know that's pure and clear
You left it with me here
In this souvenir

Spanish, Spanish, Spanish, Spanish

Father:
We hear of a lovely daughter, shot down in her mistaken flight, unaware yet of how her life will be affected by this experience.

Daughter:
How come it's a house of leaves?
