I REMEMBER YOU AMANDA

I remember you Amanda
the rained over streets
running to the factory
where Manuel worked.

Your wide smile
the rain on your hair
nothing mattered
you were going to meet him.

It's only five minutes
life is eternal
in five minutes the siren blows
back to work

And while you walk
you brighten everything
those five minutes
make you bloom.

I remember you Amanda
the rained over streets
running to the factory
where Manuel worked.

Your wide smile
the rain on your hair
nothing mattered
you were going to meet him.

Who took to the mountains
He who never hurt anybody
Who took to the mountains
And in five minutes
Was destroyed to pieces

The factory siren blows again
back to work
many didn't go back
Neither did Manuel.

I remember you Amanda
the rained over streets
running to the factory
where Manuel worked.
