Nights in Spanish Harlem

Nights in Spanish Harlem

Nights in Spanish Harlem
I had to find refuge
Searching for sanctuary
Breathing in the fumes
Smoking by the sidewalk
Surrounded by the gloom
Illuminated by the streetlight
She led me to her room

Nights in Spanish Harlem
Low lamp, red rooms
Swore me into silence
Sealed my doom
Soft breath, faded whispers
Easily misled
Executed every order
There’s a bounty on my head

Drifting down the river
Swallowed by the dark
Stranded under the moonlight
Lights from nearby cars
Stranded on First Avenue
With one secret sin
Vanished into obscurity
Adopted a new skin

Nights in Spanish Harlem
I had to find refuge
Searching for sanctuary
Breathing in the fumes
Smoking by the sidewalk
Surrounded by the gloom
Illuminated by the streetlight
She led me to my doom

Nights in Spanish Harlem
The seventh deadly sin
