Circe is a witch from Greek mythology who hopes to seduce Odysseus in Homer's "The Odyssey". This song examines that unrequited love from antiquity.


(T. Downing/S. Downing/C. Palmer)

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?
