lyrics

You came from the sea with a cross in your pocket
And marks on your face where they beat you to silence
They promised you everything, left you with nothing
Not even your name, or your clothes or your passport

Chorus
And here comes another man just like the other men
Let him come quickly and soon go away again
Here comes another guy just like the other guys
Blind to the naked hate smouldering in your eyes
In your eyes,
In your eyes, smouldering in your eyes.

And now you're a mermaid and no-one can sell you
And no-one can hurt you and no-one can tell you
Now you're a mermaid, your song is the ocean
It floats with the tides in perpetual motion

Chorus

If you look upon my face you will remember me until the day you die
Until the day the waters close above your head
Until they close above your head
I am a daughter of the ocean, I have travelled many miles on a lie
So many miles on a promise left unsaid
On a promise left unsaid

Now you're a mermaid and no-one can sell you
And no-one can hurt you and no-one can tell you
Now you're a mermaid, your song is the ocean
You float with the tides in perpetual motion
Now you're a mermaid – mm, mm, mm
Now you're a mermaid – mm, mm, mm
Now you're a mermaid – mm, mm, mm
Now you're a mermaid – mm, mm mm.
