A Mermaid's Tale

Intro:
Trapped on an island with your father
A string of lies sealed your fate
With wax and feathers you hoped to fly
Across the sea to escape

CH:
But now the poets cry themselves to sleep
And how I could have carried you from Crete
If I had known if I were there beneath
I would have caught you saved you from the deep

V1:
My Icarus so beautiful oh if only I could walk
Your father could fashion me some legs together we could live
You laughed at me and called me foolish and very cruelly baulked
I was shocked and deeply saddened so I went away and hid

V2:
When the gulls found me I was weeping heart broken on a stone
They said they each gave some feathers so you could fly away
Mad at your hypocrisy I wished you fail and die alone
And though I did not mean it it helped me keep the tears at bay

V3:
This time the gulls found me sunning angrily in the shallows
They said that you flew and flew higher than they would ever dare
They spoke in fear they spoke in haste and they cawed and they bellowed
Just before the sea consumed you the sun stripped your feathers bare

CH:
So now the poets cry themselves to sleep
And how I could have carried you from Crete
If I had known if I were there beneath
I would have caught you saved you from the deep

V4:
I swam and I searched I didn't mean it I cried as I mourned
But when I found your body Hades already took your name
If I hadn't been so bitter I could have watched could have warned
Though now it is too late and I only have myself to blame

CH2:
We were meant to last for eternity
Fairytale endings never happen for me
This wasn't how things were supposed to be
I pray that the gods will show mercy on me

CH:
And now the poets cry themselves to sleep
And how I could have carried you from Crete
If I had known if I were there beneath
I would have caught you saved you from the deep

OUTRO:
Trapped on an island with your father
A string of lies sealed your fate
With wax and feathers you hoped to fly
Across the sea to escape
