about

This track was inspired by my first trip to Colombia. It is based on joropo - a music from the Colombian and Venezuelan llanos - and was composed on a cuatro I bought in Bogotá.

lyrics

Si yo soy mala mujer
what does that make you?
Show me the way into your world
don’t fake, I know you're aching too
mamacita nadie besa como tú

déjame llegar por fin
disfrutar de tu sabor
guayaba verde, cafecito
me cansé de esperar
entregame tu dulce amor
mi cosita me tortura tu calor

you are mi guayaba verde
dulzura inminente

desde noviembre te busco
in the shadows, in the street late in the night
you turn yellow, te camelo
ya te tengo por debajo de mi piel
there’s no way that I can fight it
no me digas
know I need to make it right

si yo fuera menos cobarde
tú menos tarde en llegar
then I would love you like I long to
but there’s no way, it’s too great a leap
I cant reach you where you are
yo te pierdo que no entiendo como amarte

you are mi guayaba verde
dulzura inminente

mi guayaba, green guava
mi guayaba, green guava
mi guayaba, green guava
mi guayaba
