Janina Castañeda (the mexican princess) and Scott Weiland

She lives in a bungalow, She kills me with rosegarden thorns
She waits for me
My love is unusual, It’s painted with roses and thorns
with her I’m complete

She lives by the wall and waits by the door
She walks in the sun to me

Visions of Mexico seduce me, It goes to my head so carefully
Memories of candles and incense and all of these things remember these

She lives by the wall and waits by the door
She walks in the sun to me

She comforts me when the candles blow out
the cake has grown mold but the memories are sweet
The laughter’s all gone but the memories are mine
The Mexican princess is out of my life

She lives by the wall and waits by the door
She walks in the sun to me
