Ophelia (Live Version) Lyrics

Ophelia (Live) - Natalie Merchant

Written by:Hyde

Ophelia was a bride of God

 

A novice carmelite

 

In sister cells

The cloister bells tolled on her wedding night

 

Ophelia was the rebel girl

A blue stockting suffragette

 

Who remedied society between her cigarettes

 

And Ophelia was the sweetheart

To a nation overnight

 

Curvaceous thighs

Vivacious eyes

 

Love was at first sight

Love was at first sight

 

Love

 

Ophelia was a demigoddess in pre-war babylon

 

So statuesque a silhouette

In black satin evening gowns

 

Ophelia was the mistress to

A vegas gambling man

 

Signora Ophelia maraschina

Mafia courtesan

 

Ophelia was the circus queen

The female cannonball

Boy's projected through five flaming hoops

To wild and shocked applause

To wild and shocked applause

 

Hey

 

Ophelia was a tempest cyclone

A goddamn hurricane

 

Your common sense your best defense

They wasted and in vain

 

For Ophelia know your every woe

And every pain you'd ever had

 

She'd sympathize

She dry your eyes

Help you to forget

And help you to forget

 

And help you to forget

 

Ophelia's mind went wandering

You'd wonder where she goes

 

Through secret doors down corridors

She wanders there alone

 

All alone

 

 

All alone
