Sunday Night Jam: Los Lobos, “Short Side of Nothing”

Crows up on the rooftop, laughing out my name
Music • Views: 14,054

Here’s a great song from East LA’s own Los Lobos, performed live on eTown.

Dreams wash down the gutter
All my hopes in vain
Crows up on the rooftop
Laughing out my name

Here I am on the short side of nothing
Here I am on the short side of nothing

We danced all night as life stood by
We told another lie
Found a spot down by the roadside
There I closed my eyes

And here I am on the short side of nothing
Here I am on the short side of nothing
All alone, all alone
Can’t find my way home

Summer has come and the heat hangs low
No escape in sight
Sirens scream and lovers moan
Just like any other night

And here I am on the short side of nothing
Here I am on the short side of nothing
All alone, all alone
Can’t find my way home
