I discovered Lhasa de Sela’s music in 1999 and she died of cancer New Year’s Day in 2010. Not enough time all the way around. She was born American, raised partly in Mexic0, and ended up living and singing in Montreal. And she could sing.

Llorando
de cara a la pared
se apaga la ciudad

Llorando
Y no hay màs
muero quizas
Adonde estàs?

Soñando
de cara a la pared
se quema la ciudad

Soñando
sin respirar
te quiero amar
te quiero amar

Rezando
de cara a la pared
se hunde la ciudad

Rezando
Santa Maria
Santa Maria
