Are You With Me??

Mark PA Pic 062021

I wanna dance by water ‘neath the Mexican sky,
Drink some Margaritas by a string of blue lights,
Listen to the Mariachi play at midnight,
Are you with me, are you with me?

Yeah…
I woke up this morning, I’d lost my eye,
The blacked-out curtains made me cry,
Oh my god, what did I do wrong,
Tears still streaming. Beautiful song,
Spinning corridor. Went to look at my face,
Pent up anger. What a disgrace,
Meant to go to Cancun to start my life,
To marry that Princess to be my wife,
What’s gone wrong my hearts just stopped,
It’s too late now but the penny’s dropped!!
I know what I’m here for. I ain’t all bad,
She’s the most precious thing I’ve ever had,
Pick me up bro my heads just ran,
You’re my craziest brother, now you’re my best man,
Can you fix me up? I’m sure they will,
Will she marry me if I just lay still,
I wanna dance by water ‘neath the Mexican sky,
Drink some Margaritas by a string of blue lights,
Listen to the Mariachi play at midnight,
Are you with me, are you with me?

I wanna dance by water ‘neath the Mexican sky,
Drink some Margaritas by a string of blue lights,
Listen to the Mariachi play at midnight,
Are you with me, are you with me?

Pick up look sharp we just got started,
I’m still here now but we nearly really parted,
Thanks to God for bringing me back,
Got a wife at my side ‘n she’s watchin’ my back,
We all got mashed up in Cancun Town,
Tequila laughter no time for a frown,
Thanking my family as I lay here,
My life’s back buzzing I got nothing to fear…..

I wanna dance by water ‘neath the Mexican sky,
Drink some Margaritas by a string of blue lights,
Listen to the Mariachi play at midnight,
Are you with me, are you with me?

It still hurts me crazy fourteen years today,
Because of my sight that just faded away,
You’re seeing my face smiles in front of my tears,
The scars still hurting after all of the years,
I’m trying so hard to get my smile back through,
But the heads just sayin’ don’t know what to do,
The good thing though is my life is still here,
God by my side never away always near.

I wanna dance by water ‘neath the Mexican sky,
Drink some Margaritas by a string of blue lights,
Listen to the Mariachi play at midnight,
Are you with me, are you with me?
