Song Of A Sea Siren

Can you hear her calling you, an old voice on the wind,
Listen to the haunting tones speaking of places you have been.
Whispering loudly, stretching out to you, from across the sea,
An ancient voice that will sing softly of your history.

Singing of your loneliness, your hunger and your pain.
Crying to you, 'Come unto me, in your heart I will remain.í
You feel the ribbons pulling you into her sheltering arms,
Knowing there is comfort you, in her beauty and her charms.

You see her face upon the winds and in the pouring rain,
You hear her desperate call to you, on the edge of your restrain.
As, you let go of the fragments of reason and abandon your fate,
Your life seems, so meaningless, your loneliness won't abate.

Her cries that say, 'You will be safe and you will be free,
To swim all of the deep blue oceans and crystal sapphire seas.
You will never be lonely, I will give you all of my love.
Come unto me, come unto me, jump into my arms from above.í

You swing your legs over rails and leap into the water's wake,
As you take your final breath, you realize your mistake.
Manipulated and seduced, a siren claims another to her breast,
Her songs go on forever, she will return to take the rest.

Beware to all sailors, who navigate the oceans and the seas,
If loneliness settles in your bones, your mind may not be free.
If the siren's call comes for you and she speaks your name,
Tie yourself to the nearest plank, or your fate may be the same.
