Have you ever been (have you ever been) to Electric Ladyland?
The magic carpet waits for you so don't you be late
Oh, (I wanna show you) the different emotions
(I wanna run to) the sounds and motions
Electric woman waits for you and me
So it's time we take a ride, we can cast all of your hang-ups over
the seaside
While we fly right over the love filled sea
Look up ahead, I see the loveland, soon you'll understand.

Make love, make love, make love, make love.

The angels will spread their wings, spread their wings
Good and evil lay side by side while electric love penetrates the sky
Lord, Lord I wanna show you
Hmm, hmmm, hmmm
Show you

    General CommentThis song is just one of my favorites. He spoke with deep feeling in his lyrics of course. I think he's talking about an experience with wanting to go to a place he's never gone before and see what is ahead.

    General CommentJimi's been there and he wants to share "it" with someone else.

    It's not about drugs its about a reality that exists beyond our self adopted limits.
