The Séance ————– You see I’m not really sure just what it was happened

But that night this sound in the leaves and the rain

And the wind at midnight, well

It seemed to carry a dream and summon a prayer

It called out her name as that séance grew :

“Carlotta come to me

Carlotta in the sea

Carlotta we’ll marry

Carlotta in this deep”

Then she said,”i’m gonna try it.”

Yeah she said, “i’m gonna do it now.”

A wild look, “why don’t you join me?”

That wild look, “then we can show them all!”

Look in her eyes! “Gather the courage!”

Look in her eyes! “Throw caution to the wind!”

Those wild eyes! “Don’t listen to reason!” NO !

“Carlotta come to me

Carlotta in the sea

Carlotta we’ll marry

Carlotta in this deep”

Yeah it called out her name on that stormy night

Well it called out her name! Yeah – you heard me right

Lord it called out her name! Some kind of witch’s brood

Well it called out her name! Some demon howlin’ the moon

“We’ll gather the courage

Throw caution to the wind

Don’t listen to reason

Don’t listen to reason”

I swear that’s what she said before IT took her away

Before you found her dead body

“Carlotta come to me

Carlotta in the sea

Carlotta we’ll marry

Carlotta in this deep”

IT called out her name

I been false accused !

IT called out her name

I been false accused !

Look in her eyes!

Look in her eyes!

Those wild eyes!
