"Mermaid" lyrics - YVETTE YOUNG


The last time I felt loved, the sun was a halo around your head
I saw clouds and I heard waves

When you looked me in the eyes, you promised me that we were free

I was a mess, but I stayed calm
Choking... I'm choking
I come to the sea to think
I come to the sea to breathe

When I come home to his hands around my neck
I'm a whore
I'm a liar
I'm mute
I'm nothing
I sink into the floor of my room, bloody, bruised, and far away from you...
But I'm still happy, still dreaming of the sea
