She swims into a room full of floating people
She glides into a space full of laughing creatures
Swimming floating
Laughing about the water
She's diving falling and crying

She glides into a room full of broken lava-lamps
She lays down on the ceramic floor
Gliding swimming floating about the water
She falling racing and broken

The seaweed is always greener underwater
Down there she cannot hear the rain
Her eyes won't stain with run mascara anymore
'cause she's a mermaid jane

She soars into a bright white clouds
She plunges into the deep green sea
She's diving flying plunging into the wetness
She's free now gone now but happy

[Chorus]

In time I'll run
In time I'll feel the sun

[Chorus]
Yea she's a mermaid jane
Forever

    General CommentActually this song is sung by a chick named Suzy K and Katy wrote it. It sounds amazing with Suzy singing it, but I think if Katy sang it would be a lot more cooler.

    General CommentI swear, this is one of the saddest songs i've ever heard.
    I wish Katy would record it, because i think her voice would make it so much more beautifull,
    but suzy k sings it on Ituness.

    General CommentBut I might as well say what It means to me:
    I think its about being so far under, depresed or something like that, that you just can't hear anything. You don't want to, everything's numbed. You don't have to care about anything, so you don't have to get hurt. But being under hurts you too, you just don't realise it. Maybe people around her just don't realise, they just think she's out of control, or having fun. They're all floating, and she's just falling. such a sad song <3
