about

The original recording of this track was included on Circe (1990). It is from the perspective of the witch Circe, trying in vain to make Odysseus love her.

lyrics

Sitting high above the sea
A ship on the horizon
I see a figure strong and bold
My joy has overcome me

Waiting so long
For you
Waiting so long
For you
Tattered days and shattered lifetimes
So long...

I say a prayer to gods above
And thank the fates that brought you
I weave a spell to call you in
To make you love me forever

Waiting so long
For you
Waiting so long
For you
Your touch, your kiss
So long...

I weave you into my tapestry
I will make you love me
I weave you into my tapestry
So sensually

You won't forget, this is not your home
And you still won't love me
How could I touch a fated soul
And hope that you would not leave me?

Waiting so long
For you
Waiting so long
For you
Your touch, your kiss
So long...

I weave you into my tapestry
I will make you love me
I weave you into my tapestry
So sensually
