Es Tiempo, Mi Querida

 

The road is hard, the horse is lame

Now there is nowhere left to run

No time to argue or explain

It's too late now and what's done is done

 

We should've headed for the mountains

Or for the coast out to the west

Laid low in the village near the river

But who knows what to do for the best

 

La campana de la misión está llamando

Es tiempo, mi querida

Venido, venido rápidamente

Es vida, e vida solamente

 

I know our fathers will forgive us

I know we two are not alone

I know the ancient ones are with us

Even though our hearts may feel like stone

 

See the lillies by the roadside

See the magnolias in the sun

Hear the songbirds singing in the treetops

All this will remain when we are gone

 

La campana de la misión está llamando

Es tiempo, mi querida

Venido, venido rápidamente

Es vida, e vida solamente

 

And now the soldiers come to meet us

But they are not the ones to blame

We cannot stand against them, mi querida

For we are just the pawns in someone's game

 

La campana de la misión está llamando

Es tiempo, mi querida

Venido, venido rápidamente

Es vida, e vida solamente

Es vida, e vida solamente
