Wishful Sinful Lyrics

Wishful crystal
Water covers everything in blue
Coolin' water

Wishful sinful
Our love is beautiful to see
I know where I would like to be
Right back where I came

Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
Water covers you
Wishful, sinful, wicked...

    Though Robbie wrote this, I believe it is a carryover of the Oedipal theme from The End.

    "Wishful sinful
    Our love is beautiful to see
    I know where I would like to be
    Right back where I came"

    Right back where I came, my mother's womb entered via the wicked, sinful act of sex with your own mother which of course is not literal, but metaphoric of getting back to the basics and renewing life with your own independent thought, a constant theme of The Doors.

    "Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
    Water covers you" Imagery of this sinful, wicked act that you want, just out of reach below the surface of cooling blue water.......

    Blue water - knowledge, truth and wisdom. You are aware of your feelings, the truth covers you crystal clear. You know what could be is something beautiful. Wishfully you want to follow the water, but can't, you know it's right, but you know it's wrong and it's not possible. You know where you want to be - to start over, to have another chance. You avoid the blue water nevertheless you are swimming in it, but you know you are not strong enough to escape it if you had to face it. You think of the magic, chemistry and attraction, but you know it can't be, not for you and me and sunshine. We are existing in the same blue water, but can't connect...

    This song is about mutual love of two people who are unfortunately due to whatever life circumstances not together. They both have other lives and other partners but secretively still long for each other. They know that their love would be "sinful" if they gave into it and that the chance of slipping is a great probability sure to happen...
