“He was a sailor, lost at sea,
she was a siren from down deep
She had a tale to tell and he had songs to sing.
From shore to shore in search for land,
no hand to hold, no feet to stand,
they roamed the seas and slept on sand.
On the night they met, the moon shined bright,
and when the stars came out, it let their worlds subside.
And while they kissed hello and kissed goodbye,
he lit a spark that gave her wings to fly.
Now with fire in her eyes and feet to stand,
She lives on land and roars the skies,
telling tales of sin and spreading light….”
