Lorelei Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
POGUES - LORELEI
Verse 2
You told me tales of love and glory
Same old sad songs, same old story
The sirens sing no lullaby
And no-one knows but Lorelei.
Verse 3
By castles out of fairytales
Timbers shivered where once there sailed
The lovesick men who caught her eye
And no-one knew but Lorelei.
Verse 4
River, river have mercy
Take me down to the sea
For if I perish on these rocks
My love no more I'll see...
Verse 5
I've thought of you in far-off places
I've puzzled over lipstick traces
So help me god, I will not cry
And then I think of Lorelei.
Verse 6
I travel far and wander wide
No photograph of you beside me
Ol' man river's not so shy
And he remembers Lorelei.
Verse 7
River, river have mercy
Take me down to the sea
For if I perish on these rocks
My love no more I'll see.
Verse 8
If I should float upon this stream
And see you in my madman's dream
I'd sink into your troubled eyes
And none would know 'cept Lorelei.
Verse 9
River, river have mercy
Take me down to the sea
For if I perish on these rocks
My love no more I'll see.
Verse 10
But if my ship, which sails tomorrow
Should crash against these rocks,
My sorrows I will drown before I die
It's you I'll see, not Lorelei
