Centinela by Nortec Collective Presents: Bostich + Fussible

The story starts, it was a late November night
She had a (1)____________ in her hair, he had his (2)______________ on tight
He patrolled his watch, like nothing (3)________ was wrong
She danced by him with her face as pale as dawn

He looked (4)________ her eyes and saw nothing there
He said, "excuse me seƱorita, but I don't (5)______________ we've had the pleasure"
She said "of course you know me, I'm here every year,
but don't you get to close when I'm dancing my dear"

He thought, "how can I not fall in (6)________ (7)________ that,
a pretty (8)____________ women (9)________ an attitude to match"
He (10)______________ for her hand, and she wasn't impressed,
she wanted little to do with his gentle caress.

Won't you dance (11)________ me tonite
Hold my hand under the moonlight
All we have is just today
Until my bones (12)________ (13)________ away.

And this happened every year .. every year like clock work.

But let me first tell how it really began

About ten years from exactly (14)________ date
A (15)__________ man was sent (16)________ to fight in a far off place
La Centinela had to say goodbye,
had to leave his home and his lover's pretty eyes

It broke her heart and she wanted him to stay
But not even her gentle (17)__________ could persuade him another way.
He was gone for what seemed to be years,
and his beautiful lover counted everyday with tears

November 1st was the last (18)________ she (19)__________
thinking he'd be coming home but all she heard was that he'd died.
She was told he was a brave young man
But it was news his young lover just, she just couldn't understand.

So she drowned her sorrow and her soul, the only way she (20)________ how
by throwing herself into the well. She thought together, they'd be (21)________________ in the afterlife.

Won't you dance with me tonite
Hold my hand under the moonlight
All we have is just today
Until my bones just blow away.

But what she didn't know, is that she had heard wrong
The young man did return, (22)________ to find that she had fallen
Her untimely death meant that they were now both alone
Never to dance together again or see how old that they had grown

The next day he placed flowers by the (23)________
burned (24)______________ in the evening wishing he'd been the one (25)________ fell
He knew seeing her wouldn't happen with (26)________ tears
So he decided to wait for her, like she had done for all those years

November 2nd from (27)________ (28)__________ on
He made sure he (29)__________________ until the break of dawn
So they could dance together, for just this one day,
Holding hands with his calavera on El Dia de la muerte

Won't you dance with me tonite
Hold my hand under the moonlight
All we have is just today
Until my bones just blow away.
