Ophelia

Ophelia
1996 Selena Kerr & Chagall Sierra
4/4 120 BPM Allegro Moderato

Choir: Fair Ophelia

[Spoken:
Hamlet – I did love you once
Ophelia – Indeed, my lord, you made me believe so]

It’s been a long time since her eyes have seen
Mortal cares and mortal dreams
She is more beautiful now or so it seems
In her death than she has ever been

In death she blooms
By the light of the moon
Though she’s gone too soon
In death she blooms

[Guitar solo]

A veil of Spanish lace covers her long black hair
Mortal fragility, lost so young and fair
Her violet eyes do naught but stare
As she seems to dream just laying there

In death she blooms
By the light of the moon
Though she’s gone too soon
In death she blooms
