Lyrics

Underneath and below
And caught in the undertow
Water-weighed
My seaweed hair long
My voice like a siren song
Underplayed

Trade it in for a chance
At a doomed romance
My soul for a dance on the shore

Take me, I’ve laid it all out at your feet
And sold who I was for this moment
I am walking on the points of swords
Wrapped in a silent heat
It’s too late to retreat from the wave line
Far from home, on my own
I am seafoam

Look in my eyes
I am living this pretty lie
Masquerading
Thinking you would see through it
And know that I knew it
Mutely fading

Sister, your salvation is at hand
Spill out his blood on the sand
Leave him to die and recover your life
Look, we have brought you the knife

Leave me, I’ve laid it all out at his feet
And lost who I was for this moment
I am walking on the points of swords
Wrapped in a silken sheet
It’s too late to retreat from the wave line
I will throw myself out beyond the wave line
My sisters, won’t you go on home
Leave me alone
I am seafoam
Oh, I am seafoam
