Dreamer.
Earth child.

I knew you long ago
But its all in the past.

Come down,
I’d follow you.

I shouldn’t feel like I do,
But I’ve made up my mind.
And its all I can do to sit still.

Mermaid.
Arctic stars.
Locked by land.
Please don’t hold on to my hand.

Oh lady of the sea its gone to far.
I could never keep you alive in a jar.
I could never say that I was falling for you.
But I’d still wear your scarf.

Yo oh oh

Desert plains,
So far from where we’d set sail.
Lost my stick,
I still go round looking for water.

Oh lady of the sea its gone too far,
I could never keep you alive in a jar.
I could never say that I was falling for you.
But I’d still wear your scarf.

Yo oh oh

I’d never question my place,
But I can’t wipe this smile off my face.
And I feel like there’s nothing to say,
So please heart just leave it that way.

    Earth child.

    I knew you long ago
    But its all in the past.

    Come down,
    I’d follow you.

    I shouldn’t feel like I do,
    But I’ve made up my mind.
    And its all I can do to sit still.

    Mermaid.
    Arctic stars.
    Locked by land.
    Please don’t hold on to my hand.

    Oh lady of the sea its gone to far.
    I could never keep you alive in a jar.
    I could never say that I was falling for you.
    But I’d still wear your scarf.

    Yo oh oh

    Desert plains,
    So far from where we’d set sail.
    Lost my stick,
    I still go round looking for water.

    Oh lady of the sea its gone too far,
    I could never keep you alive in a jar.
    I could never say that I was falling for you.

    Yo oh oh

    But I can’t wipe this smile off my face.
    And I feel like there’s nothing to say,
    So please heart just leave it that way.
