You belong to the gang
But I'm here with my hands on my heart
Our families can't agree
But I'll shout out my love to the stars
So wait for the stone on your window, your window

I swore to no compromise

Your sister gave us away

Wait by the car and we'll go, we'll go
But Oh Valencia
I'll burn this whole city down
All I heard was a shout
And you ran like a fool to my side
Well the shot, it hit hard
And an oath of love was your dying cry
So wait for the stone on your window, your window

With your blood still warm on the ground
And I'll burn this whole city down
With your blood getting cold on the ground
And I swear to the stars
