The Green Pajamas

La Diabla

Out of the blue her heart goes black A change in the weather and thereís no turning back Just behind her nimbus cloud eyes The familiar storm begins to rise Every day itís red sky at morning Poor sailor never gets a warning Canít see the stars to navigate away You keep sailing straight into her rage La Diabla Look at what youíve become La Diabla You were my only one La Diabla The sweetness is all gone All gone All gone She doesnít drive you to drink she drives you to pray Youíll see the sun another day Voice of Jesus coming through the howl Telling you, man, this is your trial _______________________ by Laura Weller (c) 2006
