Siren Song

(Words and music by and © Talis Kimberley, 1990)

Sweet the sound of the siren song
Ancient voice of the of the endless sea
Deep as promises, and as strong
Cruel and green as jealousy

Turn she must and meet her own despair
She will bind her lovers with her loosened hair
And take them far below where water’s king
To be ice among diamonds where no seabirds sing…

Sweet the sound of the siren song
All the sea-dreamers ware her charms
She offers peace for which they long
In the cool embrace of her arms

Turn she must and weep her own despair
She will drown her lovers with her loosened hair
And take them far below and make them stay
Ice among diamonds where no dolphins play…

Salt waves, salt tears
Salt waves, salt tears
And the mariners fear her
And the mariners love her – salt waves, salt tears…
