lyrics

Once the daughter of the water smiled upon the sun
Radiant in her mystic beauty as the day began
She knew, all of the lies he had told
And I seeing the light knew
I’d never find a home, never find a way
Always have to roam, to find a brand new day

Even the sound of the dark had barred his way
Endless the night formed a wall, against the day
Even the trees and the grass ‘neath her feet were alive

Tis said a man who fished the lake once saw her standing there
Casting nets of web like texture he caught her in his snare
He knew all the great oceans she owned
And she falling in love knew
She’d never find a home, never find a way
Always have to roam, to find a brand new day

Too soon the sun found a way through the wall of the night
And I couldn’t hold back its power, yet I tried
Stealing my bride he raised her to the sky, in a cloud

Once the daughter of the water smiled upon the sun
Radiant in her mystic beauty as the day began
I knew all the great oceans she owned
And she falling in love knew
She’d never find a home, never find a way,
Always have to roam, to find a brand new day,

Too soon the sun found a way through the wall of the night
And I couldn’t hold back its power, yet I tried
Stealing my bride he raised her to the sky, in a cloud

And despairing so, the water daughter took her own life
