Selena

 I recorded this last week in honor of the summer solstice / full-strawberry moon, an event that has not happened since the summer of love in 1967. Today I finally had a little time so I did a minimal edit of it. It is still just a simple home recording, but I want it to be out there in the world. Someday I will try to do it more justice by paying for some studio time.

Selena
words: Ernest Samuel Llime


Here by the Mountains of the Moon
I almost left a bit too soon
Before I met you
But I did not

And now I am shackled by your romance
Entwined in your seductive dance
And still I am yearning to depart
Though you have captured my won’d’ring heart

Oh my Selene, Selene, Selena
Voluptuous Goddess covered in henna
Designs
With intricate lines
Of cherries, blueberries and grapes on the vines
I need to kiss you so many more times
Times
Times
Times
Times
Times
Times
Times
Times

Yes I do have a need to see Venus
Before I die I must go see Mars
It’s imperative I go to the outer planets
So I can make my jump to the stars

So many places that I need to see
We’d leave tomorrow if you’d come with me

Oh my Selene, Selene, Selena
Voluptuous Goddess covered in henna
And kisses
between all those vines
Where I kissed you and kissed and kissed and kissed you and kissed you
one million times

Let’s take our love on to the Universe
In verse
In verse
In verse
In verse
In verse
In verse
In verse
In verse
In verse
