What's New?

The scene is a Gypsy campfire at night. The song, sung by Esmeralda to acoustic guitars, is an intimate and touching affirmation of love as a regenerative and transforming power.

I Could Be True To You
(lyrics and music by Rainey)

(Sung by Esmeralda:)

Ever since the sight of you
I've felt so confused
Without one clear idea
Of what I should do

I could ask the cards to tell
Or that old gypsy woman
Who can see every secret
And can throw the Spells

But my heart already knows
I could never be your queen
How could I ever be the one
Beneath that golden sun
To share that golden dream

I've always been on my own
Always made my way alone
Always with good reason
For everything I've gone and I've done

Never even asking why
Why it never made sense to try
To try and ever be anybody's
one and only one, only one

Only now, it's like I no longer can bear
To live this life

I know
It's so hard
To believe
That a miracle could
Come true
But if ever anyone
Could be
I know I could be true to you

How could there be anyone
Proud of every last thing he'd done
With never any reason
For him to feel to blame or ashamed

But I heard Love can make you be
All you always dreamed you'd be
And what else would be left for me
If we could never hope to be changed

Only now, I hardly remember the girl
I used to be

I know
It's so hard
To believe
So impossible
And yet true
But if ever anyone
Could be
I know I could be true to you

For I've been betrayed
And I know how it feels
When love turns to lies
And only lies become real
But all of that pain
Seems so long ago
And maybe a special love is saved
For those who know

It's really not
So hard
To believe
That a miracle could
Come true
And if ever anyone
Could be
I know I could be true to you
I know I, I could be true to you
I know I could be true to you
