Iemanja
Melody Gardot Lyrics


White lady gone to the Southern sea
Why do you appear so suddenly
We want to honor your family
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'agna, 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
I gotta go but I'm coming back one day
I gotta go but I'm coming back one day

I do not know French, but I feel like I understand her! Amazing and settled, yet strong.

Mélody Gardot, j'aime la femme, sa voix, son corps délicatement onduleux... et sa danse sensuelle, malgré sa cane à pommeau d'argent, avec le saxophoniste

Lydie Mbl
