about

An original called Mango Trees written and engineered by yours truly. This is a song about my grandmother growing up in the Philippines. Enjoy!

lyrics

Pullin’ and runnin’ ‘round the mango trees
Foolin’ and fightin’ in a hundred degrees, a hundred degrees
Barefoot beaten soles
Archipelagos

You let go and you love
Holdin’ all that I own

My heart, My soul
That face in the door
A place I’ve never seen before
Take me, It’s time to leave Cavite

Feelin’ caressin’ soft cotton on your face
Stichin’ and sewin’ the lines on her eyes, the lines on her eyes
Her youth had gone to rest
Threads loose and distressed

You let go and you love
Holdin’ all that I own

My heart, My soul
That face in the door
A place I’ve never seen before
Take me, It’s time to leave Cavite, Cavite

And it’s time to leave Cavite
And it’s time to leave Cavite
And it’s time to leave Cavite
And it’s time to leave... Cavite
