"Selkie" as written by and Tori Amos Myra Ellen Amos....
Selkie unzips her skin, finally determined
Through a window in the dark, there he sits all alone

I've been waiting on the love of my life to find
He's been waiting on his selkie to come back

He said, I know these shores are not like yours
But will you make your home in my arms?

Selkie battled tide and wave just to gaze upon his face
Hiding behind rocks to learn if he found a new love

Lorelei sings the song for lovers who were torn apart then left broken-hearted
Lorelei hears the cry of lovers that the sea of fate had separated

Selkie puts her hand in his, he knows the gift she gives
There inside his cabinet, folded safe her seal skin

I've been waiting on the love of my life to find
He's been waiting on his selkie to come back

He said I know these shores are not like yours
But will you make your home in my arms?
