Hey Gopi! (Mazzy Star)

The Gopis description of Krishnas glance some posts ago (here), cool and gentle like the clear lakes of autumn in the saintly land of Vraja, reminded me of Mazzy Stars All Your Sisters. The same cool and gentleness. And isn’t it about the Gopis, whose lust for Krishna (as per Srimad Bhagavatam) transforms into to pure love for Him, prema, thus making the devil feel surprised, and whose wine Krishna drinks?


And I knew I was close to you
And I knew
Catch me flying in the sun
Catch me drinking of your wine

I'm gonna put something in you
Make the devil feel surprised
All your sisters wanna fly
Around my golden sky
Around my golden sky

Just because you feel hollow inside – it's real
Just because you feel hollow inside – it's real

I'm gonna put something in you
Make the devil feel surprised
Make the devil feel surprised

And I knew I was close to you
And I knew

Catch me flying in the sun
Catch me drinking of your wine
