Out to the sea I go
Just to see her once more
The first time I saw her
Her beauty blew away my soul
Day after day she consumed my heart
A bite at a time which devoured my love
Sadly, left me in emptiness
Without saying goodbye.

And when she left
I felt a great despair
Loneliness and heartless
I looked for her
Days and nights
Storms and the cold
While I held to the only memory I have are her pearls
Until I seek what was stolen from me
I'll surely kill hers.

Deep underwater
The Siren sung
In her hands she held his love
The heart she took away
It's her nature to eat hearts
But this time she didn't
She cried and cried
Trying to forget him
"What have I done?"

A decade later
The end of the line has stopped
Body began to heavy
The eye sight blurred
If only I could see her one last time
An old man like me
She will never remember
As I lie on my death bed
An image of the Siren
Clear and beautiful
The smile I never forget
A warm kiss to ease the pain
Once more I felt my beating heart
All the life I've lost
Had returned to me
Shock that I am not old or decaying
As though it was only a dream
I've gained my strength to move on
Back to the sea I go
To sail farther away from her..


Fin.
