As a young man, searching for something
I went to find love or money
Like only a fool can believe what he’s hearing
Well I could feel the motor running

Rolling down to San Antone
All those nights I’d spend alone
But in your dark eyes I found a home
For the first time
For the first time

Hear me calling Anna Maria
Cause I’m on the other side
And I swear through this wall I can feel your hand
Now I’m on the other side

And I’d got hooked up with those good old boys
Runnin’ pills and what else I don’t know
Last thing I recall, over the borderline
Was waking up in the barrio

Sheltered by an angel’s wing
Falling to the earth again
Only just to hear you sing
For the first time
For the first time

Hear me calling Anna Maria
Hear me from the other side
And I swear through these walls that I can feel your hands
Now I’m on the other side
