Prayer For Spanish Harlem

Lyrics: Jackie Greene
Music: Jackie Greene

A Jackie Greene song played by Phil Lesh and Friends in 2007.

Hot night, Spanish Harlem
Full moon, sinking low
I was standing at the bottom
Of your blue window

I come for miles just to hold you
It's been so long, baby, how've you been?
Do you remember what I told you
It's still the same it was back then
It's still the same it was back then

And I hope it all comes easy
I hope it all feels right
A dozen different candles
Light your bed tonight
And I hope it's never over
I hope it never ends
But when I go I hope that you
Will want me back again

'Cause this world, it's all around us
It's for real, it's not a game
And though hate and greed surrounds us
There's love in my veins

So hush now, do no more talking
My heart is heavy, it's a ragged stone
All I want is you with me walking
Because I can't walk alone
No I can't walk alone

And I hope that when we go
They take us someplace good
We can all be kids in common neighborhoods
And I hope we live together
The daughter and the son
And I hope they'll take me in
When my work upon this earth is done

Well I wish you loved in my arms
I wish that you would see
How time says love expires
Not me, not me
Not me, not me
Not me
