lyrics

Midnight walks and outline chalks were just a part of life
I bet you thought twice before you hit the street that night
All the neighbors said you were a nice guy
But you lived by the same sword that you died by

Alvarado
The street you bled in made the bed you lied in
Alvarado
Whatcha get into that you couldn’t get out of

The car they kept beside the 101 to get away
Just so happened that it matched what seeped out of your veins
Is it true what they say, when your ghost goes in L.A.
Angels fly down from the sky and carry you away

Alvarado
You know they call them Crazys for a reason
Alvarado
You’re lucky that they let you outlive Jesus

Kyrie eleison
Christe eleison
Kyrie eleison

Alvarado
The street you bled in made the bed you lied in
Alvarado
Whatcha you get into

We never will know
We never will know you now
Alvarado

about

Cristina Black Los Angeles, California

Often compared to Nico and Fiona Apple for her dour-pretty character voice, Los Angeles singer-songwriter Cristina Black maintains a cabaret-like propriety while drawing on the curious looseness of her former home, New Orleans.
