Some velvet morning
When I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate
Some velvet morning
When I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate

Flowers growing on a hill
Dragonflies and daffodils
Learn from us very much
Look at us but do not touch
Phaedra is my name

Some velvet morning
When I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate
Some velvet morning
When I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate

Flowers are the things we grow
Secrets are the things we know
Learn from us very much
Look at us but do not touch
Phaedra is my name

Some velvet morning
When I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate
Some velvet morning
When I'm straight
I'm gonna open up your gate

Some velvet morning when I'm straight

Flowers are the things we grow
Secrets are the things we know

I'm gonna open up your gate

Learn from us very much
Look at us but do not touch
Look at us but do not touch
Look at us but do not touch

    General CommentPhaedra married King Theseus of Athens and gave him two sons; but she also fell in love with her stepson Hippolytus. Since he refused her, and her passion for him became known, she hanged herself, leaving a letter in which she charged her stepson of having raper her.

    Interesting, however I have no idea how this relates to the song, Any ideas?

    General Commenthmm... maybe the reaching of sth. you cannot get, becouse it will burn everything you have built... maybe gay reaching for hetero, masochistic yearning for equality? who knows, I certanly do not... heh...
