“Me & Magdalena (live)”

Lyrics

Me and Magdalena
We’re driving south through Monterey
As the sun is slowly sinking
Into a distant ocean wave

And I don’t know if I’ve ever loved any other
Half as much as I do in this light she’s under

Tell me, Magdalena
What do you see in the depths of your night?
Do you see a long lost father?
Does he hold you with the hands you remember as a child?

But know everything lost will be recovered
When you drift into the arms of the undiscovered

And I don’t know if I ever loved any other
Half as much as I do in this light she’s under

Me and Magdalena
Always leaving early and sleeping late
Secluded in the canyon
Lost within a turn of fate

But know everything lost will be recovered
When you drift into the arms of the undiscovered

And I don’t know if I’ve ever loved any other
Half as much as I do in this light she’s under

Mike: “Me & Magdalena”. Ben Gibbard, author.
