“Ophelia”

“Ophelia”

The Lumineers

Who is Ophelia?

I see her when I close my eyes,

She’s never really there, but I always see her everywhere I go.

She is not real, she is not real,

But she is.

Is she real to me?


Ophelia means ‘Help’-- and maybe that’s exactly what I need,

I need help.

But would she really make it better?

Everyone regrets things in their life,

I know many people regret Ophelia.


She’s something that is wonderful in thought,

But our world is made up of more.

I want more.

I want to look up to people, to Ophelia, because I don’t want to look down,

I want Ophelia, because not having her means something worse to me--

So I don’t look down.


I’m scared of losing myself, so instead I lose mind,

I have dreams about her, and in those dreams I’m happy.

In those dreams it’s also not me.


Only a fool would ever want Ophelia,

I’m a fool because I want Ophelia,

“Heaven help a fool who falls in love”


Who is Ophelia?

I see Ophelia when I close my eyes,

She’s never really there, but I still see her everywhere I go.

She is not real, she is not real,

But is she real to me?
