Frozen Charlotte Lyrics

Artist: Natalie Merchant
Album: Ophelia

Blue like the winter snow in the full moon
Black like the silhouettes of the trees
Late blooming flowers lie frozen underneath the stars
I want you to remember me that way
Far away... I'll be gone will you wait for me here
How long... I don't know will you wait for me here
Still as the river grows in December
Silent and perfect blinding ice
Spring keeps her promises
No cold can keep her back
I want you to remember me that way
Far away... I'll be gone, will you wait for me here
How long... I don't know, but wait for me here
Follow... don't follow me
To where
To where I go
Far away... I'll be gone, will you wait for me here
How long... I don't know, will you wait for me here
Follow... don't follow me, to where I have gone
Follow... don't follow me, to where I have gone
Someday you'll take my place
And I'll wait
For you there

This song is the most intriguing song I've heard in a while. It delves into the side of death that no one wants to think about or feel. But this is a kind of reality that everyone needs to feel once in their lives. Favorite song from her.

This is the most beautiful lyrics. I have ever heard. It is like a poem.

I couldn't keep my tears when I heard the last three verses.

Very close to a poem. The word silhouettes is a bit pretentious and could be replaced with "shadows" which is simpler, more direct and doesen't detract from the power of the image. The echo, or response of what I guess to be the child of a dying parent, might have been better crafted to follow the parent's statement, i.e. more of a onomonopeia for the last few words
For the most part it is very nice, simple...eerie and sad and frozen. NM's songs have always been intelligent and well thought out and well executed. Her work is very soul sustaining and when I need to feel human again I listen to her. I also cry when I listen to this song.

@Gerald: "The word silhouettes is a bit pretentious" Really?
Pot, kettle, black.
