“Spanish Guitar” is a track by Toni Braxton which was released in the year 2000 as a part of the album “The Heat”.
The song talks about feelings and desire. She mentions having feelings for a man who has no idea about her desires. She sits and watches this man play music while she wishes the man gave her at least as much attention as his Spanish guitar.
This man gets attention from different people because of his music that she doubts he even notices her watching and pining for him from her corner in the bar.
