Legendary Lovers - Katy Perry



The Experience: Maybe this is the beginning of something so magical, tonight. With background beat of eastern sounds, Katy describes falling in love in terms of karma and repeating each others' names like mantra  

The Music Video: Still waiting. 


The Meaning of Legendary Lovers interprets love in eastern terms, like Hindu pilgrimage down to the river, to a love that makes my lotus bloom, you are my destiny, my mantra. What she wanted to describe is perfect. The image used doesn't work so well, in my opinion. Eastern spirituality doesn't usually deal with freedom: you can't change your karma, a mantra is set in stone. For me, the essence of love is freedom and commitment. 

Ask Yourself: How would I describe love to make it legendary?


LYRICS:
Under a silver moon, tropical temperature
I feel my lotus bloom, come closer
I want your energy, I want your aura
You are my destiny, my mantra


Never knew I could see something so clearly looking through my third eye

Never knew karma could be so rewarding and bring me to your life
Maybe this is the beginning of something so magical, tonight (oh, oh)


Take me down to the river

Underneath the blood orange sun
Say my name like a scripture
Keep my heart beating like a drum


Legendary lovers, we could be legendary

Legendary lovers, we should be legendary


Go down in history

Go down together, into infinity, forever
You're Cleopatra
You're blushing Juliet
Anything for your love, a ride or die


Never knew I could see something so clearly looking through my third eye

Never knew karma could be so rewarding and bring me to your life
Maybe this is the beginning of something so magical, tonight (oh, oh)


Take me down to the river

Underneath the blood on sun
Say my name like a scripture
Keep my heart beating like a drum


Legendary lovers, we could be legendary

Legendary lovers, we should be legendary


Take me down to the river

Underneath the blood orange sun
Say my name like a scripture
Keep my heart beating like a drum


Legendary lovers, we could be legendary

Legendary lovers, we should be legendary


Take me down to the river

Underneath the blood orange sun
Say my name like a scripture
Keep my heart beating like a drum


Legendary lovers, we could be legendary

Legendary lovers, we should be legendary
