Lyrics:

Mermaid Song:
Long ago there lived a mermaid
She was living in the sea
Her heart was open, spirit free
Her hair was waving in the breeze
And she was calling out to me

Then one day there came a sailor
And he took her for his gain
He didn't even know her name
Her body broken felt no shame
He didn't even know her name

Chorus: Mermaid song, it sweeps across the waters
lead me on so I can hear her calling
to the sea my love has gone
from the sea our love was torn
back to the sea of love was born

So her mermaid friends and family
Couldn't bear the tragedy
They beached themselves in solidarity
Never again mermaids were seen
Never again mermaids were seen

How many injustices before
We stand and make strength our wall
Cause love in truth lies touching all
Love in truth lies touching all

Chorus: Mermaid song, it sweeps across the waters
lead me on so I can hear her calling
to the sea my love has gone
from the sea our love was torn
back to the sea of love was born
