Share The Well
by Caedmon's Call



 

Hola, me llamo Efraim
I was born among the agave
All I need is this transistor radio
And I am in a band, it's a family band
With the brothers in the years above me
And now we have a song that we'd like to play ya

He sang, 'Volcano,
Livin' in the shade of the volcano
The volcano
Livin' in the shade of the volcano.'

I was ridin' on the bus to the amber hills
I was feelin' like a hundred pesos
And somethin' in my soul was certainly hear to stay
Ain't nothin' on the hill goes on without
The ever-lovin' mother's say-so
Now everything is all right
Everything is OK

She said, 'A volcano,
Livin' in the shade of the volcano
The volcano
El Seaor es siempre bueno.'

Home for me is beneath the palm trees
Where they grow to be about sixty feet tall
They leave you with the feeling
That never leaves you alone
Never leaves you alone

words and music by Joshua Moore

Behind the Song:
'Our companions in Ecuador were the young Turgulinado brothers. In addition to making the most severely elated music I've ever heard, they perpetually blind-sided us with these colossal smiles. The youngest brother is Efraim. Like me, he started playing with his band at a very young age. Like me, he was forced to learn a whole bunch of random instruments. And also like me, he was jabbed and teased by his older brothers the entire time. I knew I wanted to write a song about him that could be about me as well. But as I started to compile the tune from melodies I had already created while riding through the Ecuadorian hills, and a panflute line the brothers had played, I became increasingly afraid that I was writing the happiest song in the history of the band. But I finished it anyway with one intended purpose: that Efraim would smile when he listened to it.' - Andrew Osenga (Caedmon's Call)
