lyrics

Oh the wind is blowin'
Cross the stormy sea
Oh I feel you pullin me
Under water, under water

I feel you pullin me

Oh the wind is blowin'
Cross the stormy sea
Oh I feel you pullin me
Under water, under water

Yo ho, wind blow
Breeze, calm, waves, low
Keep float, sailboat
Pray for my soul

Yo ho, wind blow
Breeze, calm, waves, low
Keep float, sailboat
Pray for my soul

Yo ho, wind blow
Breeze, calm, waves, low
Keep float, sailboat
Pray for my soul

Conjuring a storm from a hundred feet below
She'll sink you down into her angry undertow
The ocean's only daughter lost her heart up in the sky
She's wept the seven seas and that is why

She's waging war in the water
A crashing tidal wave
War in the water
And no one's gonna save you while she
Breaks the surface, rips the tide up above
Steals her heart out of the sky from the man who stole her love

(Oh, the wind is blowin' cross the stormy sea)

Electric like an eel, she's sharper than a shark
Vicious as a viper fish who's lurking in the dark
A monster and a myth you'll never live to say you found
Do you want to know the legend of her deadly siren sound?

She's waging war in the water
A crashing tidal wave
War in the water
And no one's gonna save you while she
Breaks the surface, rips the tide up above
Steals her heart out of the sky from the man who stole her love

(Oh I feel you pullin' me under water)

-- Siren Call --

Yo ho, wind blow
Breeze, calm, waves, low
Keep float, sailboat
Pray for my soul

Yo ho, wind blow
Breeze, calm, waves, low
Keep float, sailboat
Pray for my soul

She's waging war in the water
A crashing tidal wave
War in the water
And no one's gonna save you while she
Breaks the surface, rips the tide up above
Steals her heart out of the sky from the man who stole her love

Yo ho, wind blow
Breeze, calm, waves, low
Keep float, sailboat
Pray for my soul

Pray for my soul
