"Merman" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
Go to bed
The priests are dead
Now no one
Can call you bad
Go to bed
The priests are dead
Finally you're in peppermint land

He's a merman
He doesn't need your voice
He's a merman

Go to bed
Dream instead
And you will find him
He's a merman
To the knee
Doesn't need something you're not willing to give
He's a merman
Doesn't need your voice to cross his lands of ice

Go to bed
The priests are dead
Now no one
Can call you bad
Go to bed
The priests are dead
Finally you found him

Let it out
Who could ever say you're not simply wonderful
Who could ever harm you
Sleep now
You're my little goat

Go to bed
The priests are dead
And come sing it all again
Go to bed
Past the apple orchard
And you'll feel nice

Two can play
I said, two can play

    General CommentI listen to this song when I want to cry but the tears won't come. Tori is right -- love can be dangerous. I think we all walk that thin line between death and life. And when we get tipped the wrong way it hurts. So I listen to her sing

    who could ever say you're not simply wonderful
    who could ever harm you
    sleep now
    you're my little girl

    and it lets me cry when the tears won't come.
