Way down south in La Manzanilla

Way down south in La Manzanilla

Way down south in little town La Manz
My heart lay buried beneath a grain of sand
Waves carried in from beyond the horizon
Coating beaches in gold, so mesmerizing

Dreams so vivid I would awake on my feet
Swaying in a breeze to a steady drum beat
On an edge of reality I had to grab the rail
As I danced to the band belting out a brass wail

“I’m never going back!” I yelled out to the void
Echoing across the bay, and late enough to annoy
Making dogs kick off tirades of barks and howls
Drifting off in the hammock, I wondered, just how

Way down south in little ol’ La Manz
My heart was buried beneath a grain of sand
Waves washed it out to the deep blue sea
So riding in the surf you should find me
