lyrics

He sang me a song
Said I was his muse
He asked for it all
How could I refuse?

Oh, he charmed all the rocks to dance
No, I did not stand a chance
I gave myself over to lust
Orpheus

A widow he was
But true he remained
Why did he wind me up
Only to refrain
I thought he sang to me
But she thought the same
And yet another one
Thought he called her name

Oh, not even the sirens could win
He never let anyone in
But sang all the love out of us
Orpheus
Orpheus

Could not go on with that voice in my ear
Taunting and teasing, but never near
Me and my sisters, we pulled him apart
One took his hand and another his heart
Put them in his grave
For the nightingale to serenade
But the mournful song
Kept singing on and on

Now his lyre plays on in the sky
His voice in each whisper and sigh
I beg to return to the dust
Orpheus
Orpheus
Orpheus
Orpheus
