"Isn't it pretty to think so?"
- Ernest Hemingway


Attention all good men and women.
Hold onto your sheets made of linen.
Remedios is flying away tonight.
Remedios is drifting into night.

Oh dear, look at what you’ve done.
Turned men into stones with fighting guns.
Remedios, you have a place in my heart.
Remedios, a tragedy from the start.

Won’t you deceive me with your eyes?
Just don’t release me from your ties.
Remedios, don’t fly away tonight.
Remedios, I’ll find you in the night.

Oh dear, look at what you’ve done.
Turned men into stones with fighting guns.
Remedios, you have a place in my heart.
Remedios, a tragedy from the start.

When all the men are dead, will you come back?
Save us from the time behind our backs.
Remedios is flying away tonight.
Remedios is drifting into night.

Oh dear, look at what you’ve done.
Turned men into stones with fighting guns.
Remedios, you have a place in my heart.
Remedios, a tragedy from the start.
