Selkie

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Selkie unzips her skin finally determined
through a window in the dark
there he sits all alone
I've been waiting on the love of my life to find
he's been waiting on his Selkie to come back
he said "I know these shores are not like yours
but will you make your home in my arms?"
Selkie battled tide and wave just to gaze upon his face
hiding behind rocks to learn
if he found a new love

Loralie sings the song for Lovers
who were torn apart then left broken hearted
Loralie hears the cry of Lovers
who the Sea of Fate has separated


Selkie puts her hand in his
he knows the gift she gives
there inside his cabinet
folded safe her seal skin
I've been waiting on the love of my life to find
he's been waiting on his Selkie to come back
he said "I know these shores are not like yours
but will you make your home in my arms?"
