Magdalena
Artist: A Perfect Circle
Album: Mer de Noms



Overcome by your moving temple.
Overcome by this holiest of altars.

So pure, so rare
To witness such an earthly goddess
That I've lost my self-control,
Beyond compelled to throw this dollar
Down before your holiest of altars.

I'd sell my soul, my self-esteem
A dollar at a time
For one chance, one kiss,
One taste of you, my Magdalena.

I bear witness to this place,
This prayer, so long forgotten.

So pure, so rare
To witness such an earthly goddess

That I'd sell my soul, my self-esteem
A dollar at a time
For one chance, one kiss,
One taste of you, my black Madonna.

I'd sell my soul, my self-esteem
A dollar at a time
For one taste, one taste,
One taste of you, my Magdalena.
