Paul Simon – Cecilia lyrics

Celia, you're breaking my heart
You're shaking my confidence daily
Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please to come home

Celia, you're breaking my heart
You're shaking my confidence daily
Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please to come home
Come on home

Making love in the afternoon with Cecilia
Up in my bedroom (making love)
I got up to wash my face
When I come back to bed
Someone's taken my place

Celia, you're breaking my heart
You're shaking my confidence daily
Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please to come home
Come on home

Jubilation,
She loves me again,
I fall on the floor and I laughing,

Jubilation,
She loves me again,
I fall on the floor and I'm laughing

    "Cecilia" is a song written by Paul Simon and recorded by Simon and Garfunkel for their 1970 album Bridge Over Troubled Water.
    The "Cecilia" of the title is generally interpreted as being a capricious lover, causing both anguish and jubilation to the singer. However, another interpretation is that Cecilia might refer to St. Cecilia, patron saint of music in the Catholic tradition, and thus the song might refer to the frustration of fleeting inspiration in songwriting. St. Cecilia is mentioned in another Paul Simon song, "The Coast" (from his 1990 album The Rhythm of the Saints): "A family of musicians took shelter for the night in the little harbor church of St. Cecilia."
    When the original album was released on vinyl, the song included sounds out of the human hearing range. This has led to rumors that Cecilia was actually written about Simon's black labrador, Cecilia. When being transferred to cd in 1996, producers removed the ultrasonic sounds in order to lower the file size,[citation needed] allowing them to fit a 14th song on the "best of" album. When interviewed, Simon refused to comment. Garfunkel was quoted as saying that Simon had never dated anyone named Cecilia and the song was probably about the dog.

    Poor fellow. He is a horrible co- dependant! This song is about a guy who is so in love with a woman that he will allow dirt to be kicked on him again and again, just for the chance to have her come back to him as her old stand by. The hilarious notion that she is cheating on him, almost within his presence, yet again, he waits for her to return to him and is overjoyed when she does.

    This guy loves a girl. It says that when he gets up from bed shes already doing someone else! I personally don't like his girlfriend. What a jerk, hurting this guy! He feels awful ever time she cheats on him but whenever she is there he is so happy! He's begging her to come back and stop it but she doesn't seem to listen. She doesn't love him, she does, whats with that?
