I will provide you with the lyrics to the song after I say a few things. First of all, the song "Ophelia" comes from Natalie Merchant's cd also titled "Ophelia" (if you like this song, you should try some of her others...she's amazing and I'm grateful to her for providing the world with the gift of her voice and her poetry). Second of all, most (if not all) of the pictures are taken from coldcase.wikia.com. While I feel that both the women and men of cold case tend to leave an impression upon me long after their story is told, this video is dedicated to some of the haunting female characters of the series. For the most part, I tried to sync the lyrics up with appropriate pictures...but it isn't perfect. You may think that I left some women out that should have been added, and you're probably right, but I had difficulty finding certain pics (also, I haven't seen all of the episodes). Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy it! "Ophelia" Ophelia was a bride of God A novice Carmelite, In sister cells, the cloister bells, tolled on her wedding night Ophelia was the rebel girl, A blue-stocking suffragette Who remedied society between her cigarettes And Ophelia was the sweetheart to a nation overnight Curvaceous thighs, vivacious eyes Love was at first sight, Love was at first sight, love Ophelia was a demi-goddess In pre-war Babylon So statuesque, a silhouette In black, satin evening gowns Ophelia was the mistress to a Vegas gambling man Signora Ophelia Maraschina Mafia courtesan Ophelia was the circus queen, the female cannonball Projected through five flaming hoops To wild and shocked applause To wild and shocked applause Ophelia was a tempest, cyclone, a god-damned hurricane Your common sense, your best defense lay wasted and in vain For Ophelia'd know your every woe and every pain you'd ever have She'd sympathize and dry your eyes Help you to forget And help you to forget And help you to forget Ophelia's mind went wandering You'd wonder where she'd gone To secret doors down corridors She'd wander them alone All alone (lyrics found at www.songlyrics.com)
