Melody Gardot - Iemanja / Chegue Journeyman Lyrics




White lady gone to the Southern sea
Why do you appear so suddenly
We want to honor your melody
With a little bitty boat set out on the sea
Iemanja, Iemanja, Iemanja

I dream of days spent in Salvador
With my little darling forever more
Taking a walk along the shore
Feels like heaven's an open door
Iemanja, Iemanja

If I were to offer a plain perfume
And if I were to honor the shining moon
As she sits so lonely upon the dune
Madre d'agua, See you soon

E'na lahia Iemanja, E'laiana Iemanja
E'Iemanja, E'Iemanja

I wanted to stay
I gotta go but I'm coming back one day

    White lady gone to the Southern sea
    Why do you appear so suddenly
    We want to honor your melody
    With a little bitty boat set out on the sea
    Iemanja, Iemanja, Iemanja

    I dream of days spent in Salvador
    With my little darling forever more
    Taking a walk along the shore
    Feels like heaven's an open door
    Iemanja, Iemanja

    If I were to offer a plain perfume
    And if I were to honor the shining moon
    As she sits so lonely upon the dune
    Madre d'água, See you soon

    É na Bahia, Iemanja
    É baiana, Iemanja


    I wanted to stay, I gotta go, but I'm coming back one day

    This has a whole different feel from much of Melody's previous music. I applaud her for expanding her musical expression. I hope she continues to explore her gift, and to share it with us mortals who adore her so.
