about

Ophelia. A song inspired by the film, Pans Labyrinth and a girls torment of having a stepfather that she never asked for.

lyrics

Ophelia

Ophelia, what you gone and done?
Ophelia Why?
Caught in the cookie jar
Now he’s going to make you cry

Ophelia run, run, run
Child you know I’m right
Tie your shoelaces tight
Hold on to your kite

You may have to weave your way
Through the tears and the fears girl
Past the francoists
And the father
That you never actually asked for

You know,
Satisfaction will never come,
Run away or grab a gun
Ask your mother, I’m sure she has one
If you fail then dear, I will grab my wand

Ophelia, why child, let your mind slip into a labyrinth
So, so far that you can’t climb out
Where no one can hear your cries

You may have to weave your way
Through the tears and the fears girls,
Past the francoists
And the father
That you never actually asked for

You know,
Satisfaction will never come,
Run away or grab a gun
Ask your mother, I’m sure she has one
If you fail then dear, I will grab my wand
