Songs For Runaway Girls is the first recording of the original soundtrack composed for the novel Air Carnation. The album gathers some of the songs that integrate the novel Air Carnation written by argentine author Guadalupe Muro.

    • Lyrics

      Bottles, boxes, bags,
      houses, clothes and books
      they store and contain,
      retain and carry.

      A grave without a coffin
      is just a hole in the ground.
      A coffin without a body,
      is nothing but a box.

      What is my heart since you left
      but a longing cage?

    • Lyrics

      How could a seed be cautious
      when it feels the earth, so warm?
      How could my heart resist
      when first touched by the sun?

      “When you show your power,
      I tremble,” he said to me.
      He made me feel like a flower
      and I only bloomed for him.

      Between night and morning I became old,
      withered by a late spring frost.
      There are no synonyms for love,
      no way to fix love when it´s broke.

      How could a seed be cautious
      when it feels the earth, so warm?
      How could my heart resist
      when first touched by the sun?

      He made me feel like a flower
      and I bloomed only for him.
      Between night and morning I became old,
      withered by a late spring frost.

    • Lyrics

      Come, live with me in a haunted house,
      to be sure it won’t drip won’t shake won’t fall,
      the house has no roof no floor and no walls,

      On the edge of a cliff on top of a tree
      built to remember that nothing is meant to last,
      over remains of ruins and debris

      It’s invisible and soft, it’s light and wide
      so we’ll never feel enclosed inside.
      It has no windows and no doors
      so we won’t know if we’re in or we’re out.

      Live with me in a haunted house
      with no room for the future, no room for the past,
      orphans of time holding tightly
      in the middle of the night.

      Our love will live beyond our lives.
      move in with me into a haunted house.
      we’ll be naughty silky phantoms, silver
      shadows dancing in the dark.

      it’s invisible and soft it’s light and wide
      so we’ll never feel enclosed inside.
      It has no windows and no doors
      so we won’t know if we’re in or we’re out.

    • Lyrics

      Rain falls on the windshield,
      the wiper is on,
      the radio plays Chet Baker songs.

      I fall in love too easily,
      like raindrops from a cloud,
      like tears from the sky
      on the windshield and I.

      A cymbal touched by a metal brush,
      sound of the wiper
      when raindrops start to fall.

      I fall in love too terribly hard,
      for love to ever last, but
      the wiper clears the windshield,
      it´s rhythm clears my heart.

      Rain falls on the windshield,
      the radio plays Chet Baker songs,
      the wiper never stops.

  • The Waste Land

    • Lyrics

      There’s a man who kisses me when he’s drunk
      and lets me feel his sadness the rest of the time.
      How are you, are you in love?

      I cried like a child reading “The Waste Land” –
      the last gift you gave me, and it was a bit hard.
      Oh boy, you never think twice.
      Oh boy, what a way to say goodbye.

      There’s a man I look for when I’m lost
      like a warm melody to cradle me in the snow
      How long will I remember?
      How long won´t I forget?

      Has a sudden frost disturbed your bed?
      Are your arms full, is your hair wet?
      Where are you, are you in love?
      Where are you, have you found love?
