A redemption song, (with thanks to the poet John Mansfield...)
Siren Song

I must not go down to the sea again,
 I must not go down to the sea,
 For the waves they crash and mourn
 And The Sirens call to me....

The Full Moon still remembers you
 But I have cast you from my thoughts,
 Though you return to haunt my dreams,
 And dreams of you now count for naught.

Your smile remains inside my head
 And your song sings within my heart,
 They never were when we were one
 But mock me now that we're apart...

I must not go down to the sea again,
 I must not go down to the sea
 Because the waves they crash and mourn
 And The Sirens call to me...

I'll not surrender to this loss,
 I'll not surrender to this pain,
 For I have lost myself in you
 And I must find myself again.
