Verse 1

The swell of the ocean, the salt of the sea 
This movement and motion is foreign to me 
My homeland behind, a vast distance ahead 

The warnings of sailors have filled me with dread 

Verse 2
They told me old tales of the bravest of heart 
Mysterious fathoms that some men can chart 
Of the ones who discover, while other men sleep 
The creatures that lurk in the cool briny deep 

Oh they say in the sea 

There are mermaids wild and free
Keeping watch in the storm 
Guide you home, safe from harm 
They will keep you safe in the storm 

Verse 3
Storm clouds are brewing, the wind lifts to blow 
Moving and tossing, the pewter waves grow 
Terrible beauty, swift lightning and rain
I’m afraid for my life on the cruel raging main 


Verse 4
Our ship made it through with a patchwork of scars 
Wreckage of wood ‘neath the stillness of stars 
The horizon goes on for miles and for years 
I play a sad song, but nobody hears 

Verse 5
Daylight breaks early, there’s sighting of land 

I find that I may have the strength left to stand 
Their good mission over, our guardians must go 

The mermaids return to the fathoms below
