mermaid lyrics – elysian fields

mermaid

remember how you found me
under a low bent half moon
i must have been singing for you
i’d never left the water
though i once knew some flying fish
thought i’d forget how to swim
i am your mermaid
i give to you freely
but soon as you see me i’m gone, gone
i am your mermaid
tangled but blissful
knock me a kissful of nectar, honey
the water is hot
and you hold my head
as sores of the day slip through the sh*r*’s threads
i’d never felt such rapture
a glimpse at the lighthouse
undo myself from your hanging mouth
i am your mermaid
tangled but blissful
knock me a kissful of nectar, honey
i am your mermaid
i opened your mortal need
you planted your opal seed of love, love
i am your mermaid
i am your mermaid
i am your mermaid
