Cythera                        w/m by Pamela Sue Perry     copyright 11/2010

 

v        (capo on 5th fret)

The lamb and the peacock lay down together in the fall.

The sacred and the profane are standing outside my door.

c

I want to fall in love

forever and always.

v

Justinian and Theodora had a secret.

Their conversion was complete.

They had it going on.

c

You breathe in the living water,

the steam leaves dew upon my neck.

Bridge

Take me to Cythera!

Take me to Cythera!

Take me to Cythera!

Feed me ambrosia!

v

Off the coast of Samothrace

Nike had wings

Fleeting passion is what you make of it

We all want to win.

c

Time honored traditions

Are given sway tonight.

v

Give yourself completely

to something to someone.

Take away what you need

to satisfy what is carnal.

c

I want to fall in love

forever and always.

Bridge

Take me to Cythera!

Take me to Cythera!

Take me to Cythera!

Feed me ambrosia!
