Lorelei Lyrics

When I think of lorelei my head turns all around
As gentle as a butterfly she moves without a sound
I call her on the telephone, she says be there by eight
Tonights the night shes moving in and I can hardly wait

The way she moves,...

    I saw Styx twice in concert, once in 1976, once in 1977. "anonymous" from Aug. 18, 2008 is right- "aspartaneaddict" is a moron! James Young told us when he first sang that song to us in 1976 when the song was brand new, he introduced the song by saying he was inspired to write it because he recently moved in with his girlfriend and he was very excited about it.

    The ship is the symbol of heart which has been badly captivates by a inner force or outer passion. But this only looks promising to fulfill your time and life with it, on the contrary from first place you shouldn't have attached your heart to this seductively illusion if futility. In the end you get wise and you start to drift away from it all. All your heart desires technically is not meant to be likely to give you peace and progress. We mist get away from anything that prevents you from exploring and moving

    You may think this song is about some girl that James Young met in his youth. No. This song is actually about marijuana, Lorelei was the nickname that the Panozzo brothers and James Young used in place of marijuana. If you don't believe me, just listen to this song in that perspective. You'll see.
