El Gavilan (The Hawk)


You gotta make your own rules, child

You gotta break your own chains

The dreams that possess you

Can blossom and bless you

Or run you insane


The moment is yours, now

To lay on the line

The past just don't matter

Tomorrow won't mind


Lay down beside me

Show me a sign

Let me feel your spirit

Running with mine


I don't deserve you

I'm just a man

But I swear I'll love you

Just as hard as I can


Storm on the mountain

Stars in the sky

Running for glory

Freedom the fly


Will you remember

Way down the road

Somebody loves you

More than you know
