Mermaid
© 2009 Carrie Ferguson

Oh, my love,
They took you out to sea
Pushed you in,
You swam your way to me
Is there anything I can say
To keep you here with me?
Washed the seaweed from your hair
But your skin still smells of sea

Oh, my love,
There’s ocean in your eyes
Cold blue waves
Uncomfortable disguise
Did they tell you you’d be beautiful
If you let them dress you with their lies?
Is there any chance that sorrow is
The water in your eyes?

Don’t forget, love is what we’ve got
You’re swimming in it

Oh, my love
Some scars we can’t avoid
Beautiful face
They drowned you for your voice
Now you sing of sea and dream of land
Forced to make a choice
And I thought I knew what lonely was
Until I heard your voice

Oh, my heart
I found you in my net
Strange new fish
That I did not expect
So with all my love I’ll set you free
And hope you don’t forget
And if you should return to me
I don’t mind getting wet

Don’t forget, love is what we’ve got
You’re swimming in it
