here's the love song I never wrote for you
it's the only way I'm gonna get through to you
I sent a carrier pigeon from Trafalgar square
it flew across the Atlantic and fell through the air
into the sea
no wonder why it never wrote back

see here's the love song I never wrote for you
it's sinking deeper into the ocean blue
it now lies on the seabed it gently subsides
and the wandering mermaid
it catches her eye it catches her eye
no wonder why you never wrote back to me

I had it all
I had the world figured out
words that I wrote for you and for me
they got washed into the sea

she read the note and followed the words to me
if only you would sail the seas for me
she got out of the water and onto the land
my mythical mistress
the note in her hand the note in her hand
no wonder why you never wrote back to me

I had it all
I had the world figured out
words that I wrote for you and for me
they got washed into the sea

see here's the love song I never wrote for you
it's the only way I'm gonna get through to you
you thought that I had a lover
it was your wish
she had the top of a woman
the tail of a fish the tail of a fish
it's the song for us for any of us (3x)
