The Arms of Orion Lyrics

Artist: Prince
Album: Batman

'Orion's arms are wide enough'
'2 hold us both together'
'Although we're worlds apart'
'I'd cross the stars 4 U'

"In the heart of a sleepless moon"
"I'll be with U 4 ever"
"This is my destiny"
"'Till my life is through"

The arms of Orion that's where I wanna be
Since U've been gone
I've been searching 4 a lover
In the Sea of Tranquility
I'm drowning without U here, my dear

'When I am lost and feeling alone'
'I just look to heaven'
'I find my comfort there'
'God only knows where U are 2 night'

"God only knows where U are 2 night"
"Maybe time will tell me"
"'Till then I'll close my eyes and say a prayer 4 U"
('I'll say a prayer 4 U 2')


Orion's heart is bright enough
2 shine on both of us
The constellations never fail
2 light the way 4 love

'Orion's arms are wide enough'
2 hold us both together
"Although we're worlds apart"
('I'd cross the stars 4 U')
"I'd cross the stars 4 U"


The arms of Orion that's where I wanna be
"Since U've been gone I've been drowning" ('lost')
"In the sea of tranquility" ('lonely')
"Drowning without U here my dear" ('baby')

'The arms of Orion'
'That's where I wanna be'
'That's where I wanna be' ("the arms of Orion")
'That's where I wanna be' ("the arms of Orion")
'Since U've been gone, babe'
"Since U've been gone"
"I've been drowning", ('drowning'), "drowning"
Drowning without your love
"The arms of Orion" ('arms of Orion')

Lina’s Interpretation - Love song ode to Osiris and Isis/ Michael and Gabriel
In mythology Osiris and Isis are bringers of civilization. When Osiris was on Earth he reportedly drowned (”drowning”). Isis/ Selene once being queen of Egypt and the moon, is searching for a new lover on the moon’s “ sea of tranquility” somewhere closer, because her true love Osiris is far now, in “Orion” / Sirius system, so they are “worlds apart” and “ lonely” and would “cross the stars” for each other.

Or "searching for a lover in the sea of tranquility" can also be interpreted as Isis trying to contact her lover/ husband Osiris from a point on the moon's sea of tranquility that when aligned with Sirius will allow communication.
