Dios es Julia is taken from a set of songs called Light the match , which follows the story of a conflicted soldier, Sebastian, and a local woman, Julia, from a small war torn town. The story follows their internal struggles and documents their chance meeting, leading Sebastian to desert and elope with Julia, and eventually face the consequences of his actions. For a solitary female voice, with a slow rhythm and mostly in a minor key.

Dios es Julia

Like a plaster trying to cover up a bullet hole Like a pat on the shoulder trying to fix a broken soul There’s no mending what she’s missing No pretending, she’s stopped wishing No way out of this hellish burial ground [Chorus] Lord, it’s Julia Are you listening, are you watching? Do you see the state my fragile head is in? My faith is shaking, world is breaking Are you watching, are you watching? I can only live for so long on adrenaline Like a letter after earthquakes rip the world apart Like a warning not to begin after she already starts Self destruction doesn’t help her But the crying overwhelms her When every spark of light has been drowned [Chorus] Lord, it’s Julia Are you listening, are you watching? Do you see the state my fragile head is in? My faith is shaking, world is breaking Are you watching, are you watching? I can only live for so long on adrenaline Like a ray of hope that can’t break through the clouds One more happy thought is brutally shot down She wants to leave, to get away But instead she’s forced to stay Trapped inside the place she once called home [Bridge] Lord, it’s Julia I can’t help but feel ignored Do you see me? Can you hear me? What do I have to do? Please tell me what to do [Chorus] Lord, it’s Julia Are you listening, are you watching? Do you see the state my fragile head is in? My faith is shaking, world is breaking Are you watching, are you watching? I can only live for so long on adrenaline Lord, it’s Julia Are you listening, are you watching? I’m thinking I might have to pack it in My faith is shaking, while I’m still waiting I’m debating, contemplating But I’m failing, life is draining Are you listening, are you listening? I can only live for so long on adrenaline
