They told me to drown my sorrows
So I drowned you
I held your head under water
Until your life was through
I supped and dined on your heart
Killing you was a fine art
I am part fish and human too
I took immense joy ending you
You was my bane
You was my terror
Bothering me was your error
I pulled you into deep dark waters
I won’t be a pet for your daughters
A mermaid lives her life free in the sea
Your biggest mistake
Was hunting me
Glaring lights, pale as death, call you and me.
Dancing through the leaves of the night, dancing around the willows and the oak, hearing the sounds of mysticism in an endless voice of hope:
What is it that we evoke?
Rushing through the air of the night, filling our souls with curious delight; the moon shines upon us as we run after thee, O what can you be? What can you be?
The silver of the night can be what you are or a guiding star? Yes a guiding star!
You took us from our campsite when the air was chilled and harsh – you made us run bare footed across the country grass!
Nightly dew soaks our wandering feet and we search for where you go. Roaming free like a bird in the sky you fly, through the leaves of the trees in the night!
But we remain warm with your charms dear light.
Running endlessly we wonder where you take us. Miles and miles it seems… we run through the fields and past the stream, this feels like a wonderful dream!
Pure is your light of wonder, warm is your glow, but where do you take us, where do you go?
What are you which we evoke?
Faster and faster you run wild and free, past the streams and the tree’s and we run faster along with thee.
We hear a mystical voice again, calling like a choir, calling our names to follow still, even though the night is chilled!
Brighter and faster the light becomes running through the corn. We follow and run helplessly we become most forlorn!
The light has gone! The light has gone!
O where are we now?
As if it was all a dream we suddenly awake from the hypnotising light we are in the lake… we are in the lake.
Drowning, mourning sorrowfully, we cry and call for help. But all that hears our calls this night is the old mythical creature the Kelps!
All we do now is yelp and yelp!!!
A slithery wet hand touches your lifeless skin
She’s breathing into your mouth
Your life in shatters begins again
For this mermaid is no foe, but friend
A rare creature from the cruel sea
A rare mermaid has come to thee
She has saved your life, this time around
She’s kept your life all safe and sound
On the sandy shore you lie
You wake up and do not realise
How close you came to death last night
Nor who has relit your life’s shining light
