Electra (Single)

Story Behind The Song

I wanted to release this as a single a while back, but got a lot of resistance from the label. I thought it was "the single", but they blocked me and picked another song they wanted to promote. Anyway, when the album came it, it started to great radio play in LA right away and the song the radio stations was playing this one, my first choice, "Electra". It was inspired by Greek mythology and the the study of the British Romantic poets....

1.
Electra come down from above
Come from the shrouding skies
Share in a conversation
Teach me contemplation, please
CHORUS
Is it true you grow constantly
Is it so good to be wise
Offer me your meditations
And I'll give you my touch and my eyes
Oh, Electra
Oh, Electra
Verse 2
Then I gave you my soul
And you gave me your dreams
And all was at peace
All was at peace
Then I gave you my touch
And you gave me a warmth that I never knew
All was at peace
Electra come to me here
Bathe in love's pure beams
For you know my soul
Yes, And I know your dreams
CHORUS
Is it true that you've waited for me
Across the sands of time
To offer me no limitations
And to give me your love and your life
Oh, Electra
Oh, Electra
BRIDGE
Then you gave me your soul
And I gave you my dreams
And our love was at peace
Our love was at peace
Then you gave me your touch
And I gave you a warmth that you never knew
Our love was at peace
VERSE 3.
Electra come to me here
Bathe in love's pure beams
For I know your soul
Yes, and you know my dreams
CHORUS
Is it true we grow constantly
Is so good to be wise
Offer me your meditations
And I'll give you my touch and my eyes
Oh, Electra
Oh, Electra
