Paroles officielles de la chanson "Cactus In A Coffee Can"

She had the window and i had the aisle
She looked twenty-five but she was shakin' like a child
When we took off
I looked over and clutched in her hands
There was a cactus in a coffe can
She was holdin' that thing like it was all she had
She smiled at me but i could tell she was sad
Somewhere over denver i asked her her name
She said elena then told me she came from santa fe
She ordered a drink and a wall came down
Yeah she started talkin' and pain poured out
She told me a story i'll never forget
She had me in tears when she looked at me and said
My mom's first love was crack
She made her livin' lyin' on her back
She gave me away on the day that i was born
She said the last ten years i spent trackin' her down
It just don't seem fair that when i finally found her
She was almost gone
We had two weeks together to laugh and to cry
Two weeks to say hello and goodbye
She gave me this cactus said it's kinda like me
It'll hurt you to hold it but it blooms every spring
She said i'm on my way back to new mexico
Was gonna scatter her ashes where the desert winds blow
