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 shore'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

    General Commentthis song is lovely, subdued and hypnotic. Mermaids typically come to represent secrecy, unobtainable passion, and slightly dark sexuality. They are not to be trusted, because they can't become fully human. They are beauty that is hidden in dark waters, and because of this, they also signify magic nearby. I think the poetry of the song captures the feel of the idea of a mermaid very nicely.
