This is a song I wrote with Toscha Comeaux and Linda Hunter for the Brazilian film "A Senhora Que Morreu No Trailer" (The Lady Who Died In The Trailer) a DGT Filmes production.
The film is about Suzy King, well known in 1950's Rio de Janeiro as a fiercely independent and eccentric snake charmer who ends up in San Diego, CA, lost in obscurity at the end of her career.
Saúde! 🍻


She sits alone with her memories
Forced in a world of solitude.
How did she get there? No one cares.

So far from what she was
They only saw who she became.
No one cared if she missed the land that knew her name.

A warm August day
Life slipped away
Are your dreams too big a price to pay?

There for all the world to see
She hid the shattered pieces
from the whispers of broken dreams.

Why did she stay in the trailer?
Was she trapped or just resigned?
Did she know her life was over?

Much more than they
could ever see.
The photos on her wall that set her free.

Her spirit stayed
but her life slipped away.
Are your dreams too big a price to pay?
Are your dreams too big a price to pay?
