PENELOPE'S SONG



Now that the time has come
Soon gone is the day
There upon some distant shore
You'll hear me say

Long as the day in the summer time
Deep as the wine dark sea
I'll keep your heart with mine
Till you come to me.

There like a bird I'd fly
High through the air
Reaching for the sun's full rays
Oh I'd find you there

And in the night when our dreams are still
Or when the wind falls free
I'll keep your heart with mine
Till you come to me.

Now that the time has come
Soon gone is the day
There upon some distant shore
You'll hear me say

Long as the day in the summer time
Deep as the wine dark sea
I'll keep your heart with mine
Till you come to me...

Music & Lyrics: Loreena McKennitt

Why does Penelope get her own song? She already has a unique name that stands out (unless she hangs with hippies). Shouldn't that be enough?

Puggles my sweet, I've done some research but I dont know who this 'Penelope' is, maybe she is Penelope the wife of Odysseus (Ulysses in Roman mythology), she was probably missing him when he went on his Odyssey whilst trying to return from the Trojan wars, she was faithful to him and waited for him and they were reunited. So I would say she deserves her own song. :) xoxox
