Mercury Rev - Black Forest (Lorelei) Lyrics

If I was a white horse... an' offered you a ride...
through a black forest

An' if we took a strange course... promised you some danger...
For a while

Ooh-Ooh... Lorelei
Ooh-Ooh... Lorelei

There's no way 'round the forest... the only way is through
An' there's no way I'll ever make it on my own... without you

But if you are persuaded... by all those dragon-flies... offering you a ride...
Well, I'll know why

Ooh-Ooh... Lorelei
Ooh-Ooh... I'll know why

Forests come in all size... danger many shapes...
Well, who's to say

If I was a white horse... an' offered you a ride...
through a black forest
