And so my love
From my window I can see a beautiful vision
And when the music plays
Your body rises like a bird of grace

Mi morena*
I saw you dancing in the rain
Holy water shining like a silver flame
Come like a ghost
I will watch you dance alone
Mi morena, you're the light within my soul

And so my love
The way you're moving in your dress
To a nylon guitar on wings of silk and lace
You lift upon the notes and slip away

Mi morena
I saw you dancing in the rain
Holy water shining like a silver flame
Come like a ghost
I will watch you dance alone
Mi morena, you're the light within my soul

Take this cross of feathers and bone
Take this heart I've carved in stone
In your name

Where the setting sun surrenders to the moon
Mi querida**, I wait for you

Mi morena
I saw you dancing in the rain
Holy water shining like a silver flame
Come like a ghost
I will watch you dance alone
Mi morena, you're the light within my soul

Mi morena
Hold your hands out to the night
Be my lover, I will fall into your eyes
Sweet fire of love
For you I'd steal the stars
'Cause I adore you, o my morena

Translation

*"Morena" translates to "dark one", and is used as an
affectionate term among Spanish speakers, loosely translating to "dark-skinned one". (Thanks to Veronica for the explanation.)

**"Mi querida" means, "my love, my want, my belonging, my life" - all in one. It's a sacred name for one's wife, only used when she is held in the highest esteem, admiration, and love. (Thanks to RisingRen for this beautiful explanation.)
