My Companjera Lyrics

by Gogol Bordello

We stepped together in the river
We traded fever on turmoil
Last time I saw you was in the middle
I wonder if you hit the soil

Where are you now, my companjera?
Your baby claw stuck in my chest
Where are you now, my sonidera?
Who took you from the nest?

Where are you now, my companjera?
I'm beating bricks from town to town
Where are you now, my sonidera?
I'm at my final down, down
My final down

Right through the muzzle came my surrender
I had to tear it off my mind
Then hypothermia took over
And suddenly I went blind

Where are you now, my companjera?
Your baby claw stuck in my chest
Where are you now, my sonidera?
Who took you from the nest?

Where are you now, my companjera?
I'm beating bricks from town to town
Where are you now, my sonidera?
I'm at my final down, down
My final down

Eat and sleep without desire
Would you like window or aisle?
Oh, Miss Sky, you ever seen
Warrior that's more fragile?

Jetlag, hangover, malnutrition
You can't fly in this condition
And if no one intervene
Out of the window is my mission

Where are you now, my companjera?
Your baby claw stuck in my chest
Where are you now, my sonidera?
Who took you from the nest?

Where are you now, my companjera?
I'm beating bricks from town to town
Where are you now, my sonidera?
I'm at my final down, down
My final down
