Lorelei, sweet Lorelei A wish before I die. To lay my head upon your lap And whisper fond goodbye. They say you are a fallen star Beyond all hope and care, A force of nature, rare, untamed A whirlpool to despair.
Lorelei, sweet Lorelei I have no fear of thee, For I was doomed eternally To fruit the Judas tree. Your laugh can light a stormy day Bring calm to raging seas, Unlock a soul from galley chains And set the prisoner free.
Your presence draws me near, To wreck upon the jagged rocks That ever linger there. The siren song that permeates Each moment you embrace, Will captivate this mariner’s soul To sink beyond all trace.
Lorelei, sweet Lorelei Invade my sweetest dream, Forever vague, but always there More real than e’er than you seem. Sleeping softly neath my gaze Head bowed deep in prayer, What you dream I cannot tell But hope that I am there.
Lorelei, sweet Lorelei What wonders might have been, If yesterday was like today Most peaceful and serene. When you wake and do return To touch my space once more, Will happiness embrace you face As did in times before.
Lorelei, sweet Lorelei Fates hand will roll the dice, The future is a lottery Twixt hell and paradise. Would I had the magic words To straightens all life’s curves, Your future would be ever kind Each blessing you deserve.
