He always said, down by the coast
That every inch we see was ours to keep
Those whispered words, they grew in me
A chalky piece of shell set sails to the sea

I saw the colors in the ocean spray
The light soaked in, at the break of day
Low tide makes time pass slower

I saw the glitter, now it’s all washed out
A hint of blue, in red a doubt
Gone with time

Would you repeat a journey down?
Can you refill the ocean ground?

Oh No!
Like castles made of sand
When water turns to ooze
A seagull without land
I got the Mermaid’s Blues

In mountains high, before we die
We dig a hole that we will never climb
All that’s left, is piled debris
And a memory carved into a tree

You never dared to put the songbird free
The time ran out and so did we
But where are we now, my dear?

We never held onto the only thing
That’s stuck inside a diamond ring
A piece of skin

Would you be digging holes in the ground?
Could we be singing when we’re bound?

Oh No!
Like castles made of sand
When water turns to ooze
A seagull without land
I got the Mermaid’s Blues
