Perdida

Written by Doug Harvey

I’m still not over you
No matter how I try
No matter what I do
You always make me cry
To think that I was such a fool to fall for one so cool –
And so cruel!
That’s what they all say,
She lures then she kills her prey
That’s why they call her Perdida

I saw you walking by
And then you turned and smiled
My heart began to fly
So totally beguiled
To think that I could be the one to reach your heart and soul –
Oh, so droll!
That’s the way it goes,
Just ask any guy she knows
That’s why they call her Perdida

Why did I not see that she could be Calamity Jane to me?
How could I not tell I fell for a belle from Hell – Shame on me!
Now I find love isn’t blind, but it looks the other way
While she feeds your needs and greed Perdida will bleed your heart away

I still can’t let her go
The hooks are in too deep
At least next time I’ll know
The company I keep
Even so, I’d fall in love and still behave the same
With that dame!
That’s how she plays the game
Your life will go up in flames
That’s why they call her Perdida

That’s how she plays the game
Your life will go up in flames
That’s why they call her Perdida
That’s why they call her Perdida
