ESCONDIDA



Escondida came to see me everyday
Took the train and brought me bread and never failed
Escondida never asked me if I lied
Never tried to find out where I'd been on all those nights
Where do you hide?
Escondida tell me where do you hide?
Escondida fine and young and still unscarred
Escondida sits alone and counts the stars
Escondida loves you till the morning light
Escondida comes and goes as she likes
Where do you hide?
Escondida tell me where do you hide?

Escondida means “hidden” in Spanish, and I found it to be a beautiful name for the mythical woman who is comparable to a mix between Angelina Jolie and Mother Theresa. The saintly nymph who bakes you fresh bread every day and takes the bus for an hour in the morning to visit and care for you, never ask calculating questions or try to stifle your freedom, calm and soothe you always , and be the perfect lover and muse… all at the same time. Hence her name.
