"Sofia" as written by and Edward Joel Kowalczyk....
Diamonds and pearls don't move this girl
She can be icy cold to the crawl
One of her lungs breathes in another world
While the other sticks around to blow you off

Even when the four winds blow
She kinda passes by like she don't feel it
No, momma, she don't feel it
One of these days I'm gonna dive into her waves
And bring back the meaning of it all

Sofia, I need ya
Like a junkie needs a vein
And I wanna feel ya, Sofia
Fallin' down on me like rain

They say in ancient times, man, that women ruled the world
But the goddess was the one who laid it down
Well, I got's a woman as alive as the day
Gonna breathe a whisper, knock you right down to the ground

So go ahead man and say what you came to say
The black widow's a spider
The black widow's a spider
Then go and prepare for your dyin' day
Won't take one minute till you're curled up dead beside her

Sofia, I need ya
Like a junkie needs a vein
And I wanna feel ya, Sofia
Fallin' down on me like rain

On me like rain
Fall down
Fall down
Fall down

Sofia, I need ya
Like a junkie needs a vein
And I wanna feel ya, Sofia
Fallin' down on me like rain

Sofia, I need ya
Like a freeloader needs his train
And I wanna feel ya, Sofia
Fallin' down on me like rain

Sofia, rain down on me
And I ain't ever
I'll never be the same, baby
I wanna feel ya, Sofia
Fallin' down on me like rain

    General CommentIt may be helpful to note that "Sofia" is the Greek word for wisdom and is used in the Septuagint (Greek version of the Hebrew Bible) in Proverbs as Lady Wisdom. This is wisdom personified as a beautiful woman and contrasted with the seductive Lady Folly. This may or may not be what Ed intended, but he does have a thing for spiritual references and it seems to fit with the lyrics.

    General Commentthelegendofkb,

    that's similar to what I was going to post. Ed is alluding to Sophia (although he spells it Sofia), who is the gnostic personification of wisdom.

    Man, Ed hits on so many spiritual points in his songs and dances around love and truth. He has come so close to Christianity but won't embrace it. Buddha won't do anything for him on his deathbed.
